Mr. Peanut was a part of my childhood and bringing him back, his fun and frolly makes me smile every time I pass by this tin I found on eBay. He lives in our kitchen along with a plucky chicken
I've named Mrs. Kitchen because she's our kitchen chicken.😆 ~ say that 5 times!
A pomegranate pillow, because why not?!😁. It makes me laugh every time, ( don't we need more of that?) Not to mention it's a hook rug pillow, I appreciate the hand craft🥰
I'm naturally pretty creative but my home decor is calming, and mostly neutral tones ( which we love), however, as of late I've been so inspired to loosen up and bring some whimsy, some of our naturally silly personality into our home, or wherever else it may appear! 🙃
