Solo Aqui::Handmade Accents In My Home

We haven't done much in the way of decorating the home we live in currently. It's more or less in functional mode. If it works, it stays, otherwise our home is very basic which allows for a lot more room for our family to exist. That doesn't mean, however that we are devoid of those little accents that define a space. Here are just a few of the handmade accents that are tucked here and there around our home. 

Our welcome wreath I constructed out of an old sweater, vintage sheets, vintage buttons, and an old table cloth, oh and a piece of wood I found on one of my outdoor outings.

My favorite sun flower pillow. Not made by me, but was a handmade gift to me from my grandmother. Handmade gifts always carries the deepest meaning to me.

These three craft wreaths I found at a thrift store for 30 cents each. I strung them up with more of that vintage bed sheet.

Two discarded mirrors I found when we moved into our home. Nothing that a little paint, a doily, and some glue couldn't fix.

Our little recycled sweater bird ornament adorns one of our bedroom doors

A recycled Salsa jar, wrapped in wire and gifted a sparse bouquet of dried lavender makes our guest bathroom a quaint little nook.

 Do you have handmade accents in your home?


  1. I love taking a peek into people's homes and like you said "the little accents that define a space"...thank you for sharing, I love them!

  2. This was a great post! Like Tess here I love peeking into people's homes (sometimes I feel like I'm peering, but oh well) and like you, our house is very functional and I always want to add a few touches here and there but was never sure what to do. This gave me some great ideas - maybe I'll hit the craft store today . . .

  3. That wreath is amazing. I love those little accents that reflect who you are as a family. I couldn't stand having a clean clinical looking house, without a soul or spirit. I love the colour on your walls too x

  4. I like the salsa jar with the dried lavender!

  5. I think it's great when people ask you about where things in your house come from and you're like, "er, I made it myself!". Always a talking point. I have little crocheted Korknisse on my mantlepiece at the mo.

  6. Thanks everyone! So glad you have enjoyed this little sneak peak.

  7. I do have handmade accents in my home. Some I have made, and some my family has made for me. I did a post about my shell wreath a couple of months ago.

  8. Hi Della! Oh, I would love to see the shell wreath you made. Can you post a link to that post?
