Blooming Nest, a Pinterest project

Every year in early spring we find the most amazing photos and ideas shared on Pinterest.  We have found so many that we have created our very own Spring Decorating Pinterest Board.  This board allows us to save and share some of our very favorite, colorful Spring projects and decorating inspirations.
Just this week we found this pinterest project,
credited to the Juniper Moon Farm website.

This clever idea will allow you to offer your colorful yarn scraps to nesting birds,  in a bird suet feeder. Hang from a tree branch, then watch as bird nests in your yard appear with colorful strands of yarn woven in with sticks and branches.

You can find more details by visiting the Juniper Moon Farm link above.
Happy Spring!

Radiance Lighted Canvas

NEW Radiance Lighted Canvas designs for 2014
Our Radiance Light Canvas collection proved to be a very popular item for our customers in 2013. 
This collection offers beautiful art prints on stretched canvas.  Behind the front canvas tiny lights are hidden and powered by a battery pack hidden in a pocket on the back of the canvas.  This beautiful artwork can be displayed on the wall with out the lights turned on and no one would know its a lighted canvas.  Lights can be turned on with a switch on the side of the canvas.
The lights softly flicker like candle flame light.
Customers ordered canvases for themselves and many were ordered as gifts for Christmas.
After finishing a very busy Christmas season we started our showroom tour for new products in 2014 in early January.  I was very happy to see that the Radiance Lighted Canvas collection had grown significantly.  There are many many new designs available for 2014.  Some are brand new concepts in design while others expanded on themes and designs that proved very popular in 2013.
There are new everyday designs, nautical and beach themed designs, St Patricks Day, Easter, American or Fourth of July, Halloween, Fall, Thanksgiving, and of course Christmas.   Billy Jacob's artwork in the collection has expanded, offering Americana scenes of farmhouses and barns in country settings.  Many designs are offered in a small and also large canvas size.
Below is a video of some of the first new design we will offer.  The Radiance Light Canvas shown in the video will be available starting January and February 2014. 
 There are over 150 additional designs that will be available after May.
Please join our email list ~chose the Radiance Lighted Canvas option

Fall Porch Decorating

Here are some great Fall Porch Decorating Photos
we found while browsing the Internet, and some
quick suggestions from the Shelley B staff
Don't have the time or budget for a complete porch makeover?
Then why not try one or two ideas shown below.
1.  Coordinating fall garland, wreath and sprays
at your front door is a great start to any seasonal porch decorating.
If you can't find a garland and wreath set, try using lots of  fall floral stems or sprays
add them to an inexpensive grapevine garland and grapevine wreath.
Additional sprays in urns and window boxes will
create a look like the one shown below.
2.  Use an old chair as the stage for a collection
of fall pumpkins and flowers

3. Want to create your own front door decoration,
without taking on a wreath making project?
Use a large wall pocket
and fill with fall stems.
Add some styrofoam to hold stems in place

4.  Add fall themed pillows, throws, quilted wall hangings  to
front porch rockers and porch swings


5. Burlap makes a great fall embellishment
for your porch urns

6. Fall Pumpkins can display your house number.
Cut numbers out of the pumpkin or use numbers
from the craft store.

7. Window boxes make great containers for
fall harvest items, like
pumpkins, gourds, flower and foliage stems.


8. Old furniture on the porch
creates a focal point for
