red & aqua cuteness~ more decorating!

The last couple weeks I've added some new red and aqua cuteness to our home! I still have more plans but I'm loving how everything is coming together. Slowly but surely. :) It seems like an on going project, adding little by little. I think my next project will be a scalloped bunting.

These cute aqua shelves were the needed accent for a couple embroidery hoops. I just got some more vintage red and aqua hoops on ebay so need to find a place to add a few more lovely embroideries I've received in swaps.

Isn't this the most adorable little mushroom turtle!! He just arrived on Saturday from far off Aussie land! My sweet friend Amy made him for me, for the Urban Home Goods Swap but he sadly didn't fit in the package. When I bought some cutsie ribbon from her shop she sent him along. I absolutely am in L O V E with him. THANKS, Amy!!

And pom poms!! I've been wanting to add some fun pom poms for ages!! Ever since I saw my other sweet friend Amy, aka Nanacompany decorating with them here , they have been on my list. So excited I finally got some!!

I got these cute polka dot boots at Joanns! They make the perfect little vases! :)

a few larger ones hanging from the fan!

A quick and easy project, by adding a little of my favorite BB polka dot fabric!

See ya later this week!
