saturday show & share: a jersey girl

Today’s post brings me back to my old haunting grounds. That’s right, New Jersey …

Okay, physically I’m still in Chicago … but existentially I’m channeling my inner Jersey girl.

I stumbled across this blog, Eclectically Vintage, last week …


… and was immediately drawn in by that crazy creative ladder Christmas tree above.  Seriously, who other than a girl from Jersey could take a plain old paint-splattered ladder and make it sparkle and shine?

Kelly’s holiday decorating is so very unique and inventive.  Take this …
… that’s the best use I’ve ever seen a Jello mold put to!

And what about this marshmallow wreath?

I could never do this in my house — it would drive Ernie the Beagle insane, not to mention those little mice that seem to think they live here too – but what a clever kitchen decoration.  I’m digging the little fondu fork embellishment …

Once again, I’m having some serious fireplace envy.  Check out that screen on top … it’s a crib bed spring.  I’m never, ever going to donate or have a garage sale or  throw anything away again … ever.

And look …

… Kelly doesn’t even have big hair!  Take that Snookie!

Like me, Kelly is new to this blogging world, so be sure to stop by and check out her site here

And make sure you take a look at her amazing dining room before and after post here

    Thank you Kelly! If you ever find yourself in Chicago, please be sure to let me know. I’d love to show you around my new adopted city … and I’m so happy to have a new Jersey BFF blog friend. I do miss my NJ friends. They are the best and most loyal.

    I’ve been reading your posts for about 15 minutes now – and realized I wasn’t following you, so now I am. Great kitchen redo – love that glass tile on the table too. I’m adding your blog to my blogs reading lists.
