little changes that make a big difference

Y’all, my office is moving right along. And even though it was motivating to do the big huge things like a new/old door and fresh paint on the floor, ceiling and walls, there’s nothing like putting out a smattering of pretty, meaningful things to make a big huge change. Finally, this office feels like it’s mine.


I can hang things!!! I cannot exaggerate how fun it’s been to start girlifing this room with all of my pink and blue stuff! It’s been packed away for way too long and I’ve collected a few other things to add to the girlie office feel. All I did was shop the house (actually the barn, and the trees) for anything I could use together in a vingette.


I needed a place to set stuff right inside the office door so I grabbed my old yard sale library table and started layering stuff on there. I needed a lamp, a place to set stuff like my phone and bag and my jewelery that I always seem to strip off. And of course I wanted it to be fun and creative and inspiring.

all by grace plate

The first thing I did was prop up my old painting so I knew where to start a random, layered plate wall. I love this little “all by grace’ dessert plate created by DaySpring for (in)courage (friends of Nesting Place and sponsor of this post). It actually was the starting point for the entire wall.

My office is ready for decorating right in time for the Bradford Pears!


On the table I used a salad plate (shhhh) and a sugar bowl to be a landing zone for my phone and other non manly items that are in the house. No bullets, remotes or bottle caps in this space! These little dishes are just a tiny part of an entire new line of dishes called Daily Grace collection. But even split apart they have many uses. The little square salad plate would look sweet hanging on a girl’s wall. Stack a journal and a nice pen on the dish and tie with a ribbon for a great gift.

I’m so thrilled with my little ahhhh moment in my office. I love how small, easy changes can have such a big impact.

Take a look at the new Daily Grace collection with all sorts of surprising pieces from salad bowls, trays, butter dishes to tea pots and memo boards with chalk board labels, it’s one of my favorite lines EVER from DaySpring and (in)courage and I heard a rumor they have more collections coming soon!
