Marché Maison's Spring 2017 Home Tour, Part 2

Welcome back to Part 2 of my 2017 spring home tour! I decided to start off the tour in my dining room with this chalkboard. I found this empty hall tree frame at a yard sale for $15 I think? It has been a few years...all the yard sale purchases are now blurring together! ha! I had a piece of masonite cut to size at Home Depot and painted it with black chalk paint. I absolutely love changing it every season. I look for inspirational quotes or verses that speak to me. At Christmas, my daughter drew a wreath of words with all the names of God, I hated to erase it! Yes, as this quote says, it has been a long winter, but what type of "winter?" Yes, snow, cold wind, ice, etc. But what a

Marché Maison's Spring 2017 Home Tour, Part 1

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by and touring my home here in Allentown, PA! You know what? I love so many styles - seriously, I could change the decor of my house every year - shabby chic to rustic mountain to chic Miami modern to old English antique. I do love it all. So, what do I do?

Take this vintage printers tray with all those compartments wher

Swing in Spring

Something about a swing says whimsical to me. To me, a swing evokes childhood memories and symbolizes warm breezes and laughter. That is why I designed these old reclaimed wood swings with rusty chains to be part of Marche Maisons spring window display. Spring is an invitation to come forward, be playful, walk in the grass, anticipate rebirth as the earth brings a beautiful display of pastel before our eyes. I have to confess, my heart leaps for joy when I see the first crocus leaf burst forth from the thawing winter ground or to smell the fragrance of the first lilac bloom. So, here I invite you to breath in spring as you drink in these pictures! If you are like me tonight, you are an

The Neutral Winter Palette

Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am eeking out a winter decor post before all things are moss and tulips! Today is March 1st - yippee! I have been busy gathering all my items for the Marche Maison spring window display at the bottom of Allentown's historical Americus Hotel. The window theme will be spring indeed but in a neutral palette kind of way. Speaking of neutral palettes - this is a picture of my winter "mantle display." I call this my mantle because I have no fireplace - sniff sniff. We had one in our old home and I thoroughly enjoyed changing it out every season. So this will do until we have a fireplace again! I had so much fun putting this vignette together th
