Happiness lives within all of us – take the time to see yourself and all that you have to offer those around you.

Transition

Right this way!

IMG_5909

Everything you’ll need…

IMG_5896

for a smooth transition from the warm summer sun to cool evening breezes we have at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too.

Fill your mind with new ideas on gardening. As fresh flowers fade think dried seed pods, vintage metal rolling carts, galvanized pails, polka dots, and birdhouses for the porch.

IMG_5912

IMG_5898

IMG_5895

IMG_5911

IMG_5908

Mix those florals with decorative metal shelves and silhouette mirrors and run away with a fresh look indoors.

IMG_5915

Bring the garden trellis inside and grab the bike as well. A friendly reminder to not bring dirt indoors hangs in the entry. Better yet, simply leave your shoes at the door!

IMG_5905

IMG_5906

IMG_5913

IMG_6043

Vignettes in neutrals and black and white create a calming invite for all who enter.

IMG_5897

IMG_5894

Think of unusual pieces to use as a focal point in displays for your home. Industrial headlights for longer nights, vintage advertising for the bar, or a well loved musical instrument over the mantel.

IMG_5901

IMG_5902

IMG_5904

The croquet set may be narrow enough for a windowsill that looks out at the backyard.

IMG_5917

Get a jump start on fall and hang a repurposed, distressed chalkboard by the phone for notes and messages as the family comes and goes with varied schedules.

IMG_5903

IMG_5900

Stack a few quilts nearby for longer evenings and the cool air that sweeps through the house.

Cabin Retreat

Grab your boots, a blanket, and a sweater — we’re taking a trip to the mountains, streams, and cabins of the Pacific Northwest where the evening temperatures drop down into the 40s! You’ll find everything for your getaway, as well as cabin decor, at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too.

IMG_5507

IMG_5513

IMG_5510

Start your journey to the mountains early in the morning and enjoy the scenery along the way. You’ll want to search for country houses with creative fences, cattle grazing alongside the two land highways, and vineyards to explore and stop in at for tastings!

IMG_5523

IMG_5514

IMG_5509

Be sure to stop at a local diner for an amazing meal and fill your bellies for all the activities in the fresh air.

IMG_5511

You’re sure to see some amazing finds for cabin decor. Search out weathered wooden farm pieces and old wagon wheels, rusted tines, and farm machinery pieces with unique architectural elements.

IMG_5517

IMG_5518

IMG_5524

Unique lamp bases and shades help to make a house a home as well as becoming a focal point for a room. Nubby handwoven pillows, pieced log cabin quilts, and fabulous patterned tapestries all become personal statements! Even a painted side table takes on character with a paste paper brush stroke pattern.

IMG_5521

IMG_5522

IMG_5516

IMG_5525

IMG_5519

Make time for a scenic horseback ride and some time relaxing by the stream or river. If you head far enough east you may run across some time worn chapels and churches that will take your breath away.

Personalize your porch with hanging banners and miniature flags. Make swags at the doorways from vintage pot holders.

Think outside the box when it comes to utilizing these pieces. Jay Hill Paintings can be out on the back cedar fence for the day as a grand backdrop; centerpieces can be wooden spools, vintage games in the colors of the day, and even a mix of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls!

IMG_4431_2

IMG_4425

The ocean is calling to us with the roar of the waves; beckoning us to walk barefoot in the sand.

IMG_4447

IMG_4458

Shells are all around us if we know where to look. Large conch shells, garlands and starfish, and even treasure boxes and decorative frames bring Nature into our homes. Blue Ball canning jars and Fiestaware in shades of teal and green compliment these treasures.

IMG_4454
