Spring Living Room and I Kidnapped My Sisters Chairs!

Love this living room decorated for spring and those red striped grain sack chairs are fabulous! kellyelko.com

The 10 foot snow drifts are finally melting and spring is in the air.

Tomorrow is the first day of spring and I’m celebrating the longer, warmer, sunshiney-er, skip in my step days by adding some spring touches around the house.


It all started with these red grain sack chairs.

I have temporary custody – I’m decorating my sister’s living room and found these babies at HomeGoods.

Since they’re here for a few days, I might as well get some joy from them and pretend they’re mine until I have to grant custody to my sister.

I get tons of questions about how I made my Peep wreath – everyone wants to know if the ants have attacked it.

NO – I made it four years ago and it’s still going strong.

Don’t attempt to sneak a peep though or you’ll crack a tooth.

  1. What??? You got those chairs at HomeGoods??!!…they are fantastic..have not seen anything like that at mine, but then again, I know people who pop in there every day so I can see them being bought before they hit the floor..I guess I need to go there more often…they look great in your room…your sister may have to pry them from your hands…

  2. You’re Sister didn’t fall far from the tree, did she? I’m sure her home is as gorgeous as yours. Those chairs are fab! Love the vintage but chic look. So you!!!

  3. I love the chairs! (Maybe she’ll forget about them???!!) : )
    I enjoy everything you do. As I’ve said before, you have a gift, a bit of magic when it comes to putting things together!!! Have a wonderful day

  4. The chairs are pretty but, if i remember right you have some nice ones too.I love that fruit pillow or whatever, where did you get that,oh i know sushi brought it to you, right lol !!!

  5. Oh my, I’m so in love with those chairs, what’s not to love? I’d have hard time surrendering them to my sister if I had one. And that rug, love it too, love it all, gorgeous room.
    I used to have bunch of those cute little carrot eggs, think they got donated to thrift store few years ago. Wasn’t easy as they are so cute. We were living in our rv for few months at RV park when we first moved here in 2004 so we decorated trailer with them in side and out. Your garland looks so cute across your fire place. I’ve made couple garlands this year to decorate house and door. I usually make couple I give to daughter.
    Enjoy rest of week. Bye awesome chairs.
