Creating a Bright and Happy Home

There is just something about January that makes me want to clean out clutter; do a little deep cleaning, and brighten up my home.   Am I the only one who feels this way in January?

Hello Sweet Friends, Welcome to At Home With Teresa.  It is a fresh lemonade kind of day here at the farmhouse.

Even if they are fake....like these are, still brings brightness to a home




I love making my home happy and bright.

By simply adding fresh flowers to each room.



By hanging a boxwood wreath over our dresser, adds a little greenery. 


Painting a wood cabinet pebble gray ~ freshens up an old piece.


I love how fresh and bright my laundry room is... 
My desk to the right, it is my favorite place to think, 
to write, to paint with watercolors  and to read.
I plan to paint the legs and skirt of this desk pebble gray.





Adding a new comforter that was on clearance for thirty four dollars,
 is a sweet way to brighten up a room. Floral prints is making a come back this year.

I would love to hear if you are making fresh new changes in your home.


               All things new,

    1. I find flowers on clearance at Kroger's, last week I was able to found some for 99 cents each. This past week I found some for $2.49 each. That is how I am able to put flowers here and there. Wildflowers are one of my favorites to plant along with zinnias. Thank you sweet Chrissy.

  4. I love decorating with fresh flowers too. Also this winter I discovered growing Wheatgrass which is a super fun and cheap way to bring some fresh/brightness into your home. I also am very blessed to have a lot of big windows which we do not cover with blinds and drapes. I love the sunshine that pours in!

    1. Aww ya know I use to think that way, then I decided to work towards it in my home. It's far from where I would like it to be. But little by little it is getting there and so can yours.
      Be inspired sweet friend.

  6. Yes, I do the same! I think the Christmas clutter creeps in around here. We are busy. Decorations are everywhere. We shop more than usual. Gifts are bought & stored to be given away. Gifts are given to us & must be done something with as well. I LOVE the season, but am ready in January to start anew!
