Believe In Your Dreams

Hello Everyone!
This is the time of year to believe and dream.
I found these inspirational signs yesterday while
shopping for winter clothes at Cato for $3.99 a piece.
I'm all for decorating our homes how we feel is right for us.
I don't create craft things (I wish) or shop at expensive shops either.
I buy what I like and what makes me happy at the time.
I hope we all do this however this may happen to be. Be yourself.
*Believe and Dream*
That is my motto this season...and always.
Not only did I love what they say but they also match the room.
They have a sage green background with cabbage roses.
They sit right above the eye sore of the a/c vent.
That is just fine with me. Nothing is perfect in life.
All photos enlarge when clicked.
They make me smile everytime I read them.
Hopefully when friends see them they will as well....:)
I had fun picking out a bunch of magazines to read.
It seems like a good cold weather pastime.
A cup of hot green tea and fresh popcorn and I'm set.
~*~
How about you? Are you believing and dreaming?
Have a wonderful weekend!

Love those signs! Im not very crafty, either, so I love finding things that add to a home and make me feel good when I look at them!

Lori said...

I picked up a little block sign last year that says Believe ~ love these ones Melissa and they are perfect for your room.

Karen said...

Melissa, I've seen some really cute things @ CATO's in their housewares. They do look great in your room. :)

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Melissa, The signs look like they were made for your home! Gorgeous.
No! I am interviewing a woman that has been on Oprah several times. I wish it was me!
Have a pretty day!

Denise said...

Your signs are lovely Melissa, ya know I haven't been to Kirklands in a long time, I should go check out what they have as I love to add little things here and there too. Have you decorated for Christmas yet?
I haven't heard of Cato's actually! Did you get any winter clothes, I need to go shopping myself for some too and Kristen, I think we'll do that once school is out for winter break

Hello Melissa,
I love your new signs and at a bargain price too! They look expensive. I recently bought a bunch of magazines and decorating books to enjoy by the fire.
Blessings~

They are very pretty and fits right in with your style. I didn't know Cato's had homegood so I think I might take a trip over.

Julie Harward said...

Very pretty! I cannot believe thats all you paid for those..wow! I love to dream especially at this time of year and I think I have always been a dreamer! LOL ;D

Melanie said...

I feel the same way that you do....decorate with what YOU love, not what is 'in' at the moment. I have always done that it and it has never led me down the wrong path.

I like your topiary tree next to the vent:) You and I have the same magazine habit.....Lots of them;-)

Brenda Kula said...

I'm getting ready to take my shower and then read some magazines myself. Yes, we should always decorate how "we" want and not follow the current trends and forget that. Your finds are beautiful!
Brenda

April said...

I can't believe you paid only $3.99for each of them...what a deal! I love how you arranged them on your way...just PERFECT!

Donna said...

Beautiful signs in a beautiful home!!!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Very nice! I love to find things that mean something special to me...and I LOVE magazines! Enjoy your evening! ♥

Shelia said...

Hi Melissa! Yes, ma'am, I'm doing those things! Those are the cutest little pictures and they do match your home!! That's a lovely little curly bush there too!
Your home is always so beautiful.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Debbie said...

Hi Melissa...I love your signs. I also love your way of decorating thoughts...I am the same way. THe way we like to change and tweak it is best not to invest a lot of money on those little things...besides they look fantastic paired up right. Very nice. I saw you joined Vanessa's and so did I today.

Traci said...

I love them!!! What a great deal!!!

Jules said...

The signs are lovely and look really nice in the room. I always like special signs like that. They are a good reminder as to what life is all about. We have a sign in our living room that says Live Laugh Love. I try to remember that everyday.

Cuddling up on the couch with a cup of tea and some magazines is one of my favorite things to do in the winter too!

Kathy said...

I love your signs

Designs on 47th Street said...

Oh yes, Melissa! I do believe and dream. Very cool signs. I was always going to ask you where you got your sign "there's no place like home". My mother is named Dorothy and I always thought it would be fun to find that sign for her.

I am not familiar with CATO's.

Vanessa said...

Hi Melissa! Doesn't Costco have the best deals on magazines? And I can't believe what a great price on those beautiful signs! Thanks so much for linking this up to Inspiration Friday this week! :-)
Vanessa

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Love those signs, and so beautiful!

A Hint of Home said...

I'm always believing, dreaming and planning! The the new wall art. They found the perfect spot on that wall.
Enjoy them!

Kate @ Chic on a Shoestring Decorating said...

Hi Melissa, Thanks for linking my Flaunt it Friday party! Can't believe how cheap those cute signs are... they match perfect! Also, thanks for visiting Tallgrass Designs, I love my little ornament pillow and couldn't believe how inexpensive it was! Come back soon! xoxo

Tara G. said...

They're a perfect match and I love the price tag!! :) Our NC house AC vent was like that in the living room, too- and in a walkway so I couldn't even put a pretty topiary in front like you did!

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm dreaming!

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

Pretty wall art and meaningful words! Certainly the time of year for believing and dreaming. I'm reminded of child like faith when I hear my 5 year old talking about flying reindeer and the North Pole.
I, too, love a good magazine and popcorn. Great combo!

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Perfect for your home! They look awesome and your home is so beautiful.

Lisa said...

I love the signs, Melissa and the sentiment behind them! I did not know that Cato had stuff for your house! What a fabulous deal.

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

I love those prints!! Everything looks great. I have gotten away from magazines because I spend so much time on the internet!

Mississippi Girl said...

I'm in the same boat as you are, Melissa. I can't make anything crafty and as I like to change things often, I can't afford to spend loads of money. I love the small area of decorative items in our local Cato's. I've found some sweet deals in the past.
Love the signs you bought.

Donna

Melissa Miller said...

Thanks for your sweet visit Donna! It's always good to see you stop by. :)

Anita said...

Those are so nice and they are just perfect there!! Love your topiary too! Thanks for stopping by:-)

The Aud Author, Audrey said...

Melissa, love it as always! I know what you mean about the A/C unit's intake grid...I hate mine too, lol. I made a new post today about one of my guest rooms...check it out if you get a chance. :)

Michelle @ Dream Home DIY said...

Hey sweetie! You mentioned your eysore vent. Have you thaought about painting it? We painted ours the same color as the wall and you dont even notice it AT ALL. Easy as that :0)

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Hi there Melissa~ I love your signs!! The colors are perfect for your room and the message is fantastic~ love it. Thank you for sharing these at my party!

Becca said...

Peggy said...

Hi Melissa..It has been a long time but I so enjoy reading your Blog...Love the signs..Merry Christmas...

Liz said...

Love the signs, Melissa, very pretty! =) xo Liz

Angela said...

I love the new signs. They match perfectly. I can never find deals like that when I shop.

Cathy's world said...

Do they have a website. I have got to have those. I love them. They are so pretty and would go perfect with my decor. I love the words on them too. We all must believe and I will never take a moment not to dream. Did you buy the 3 of them or just the 2.

Easy Peasy Chic said...

LOVE THEM!!
Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my blog! The warm fuzzies are great! Have a great weekend with those you love. :)

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

H-E-L-L-O Melissa!As always I'm amazed at how you find the perfect decor to match your whole scheme. You know how much I love the rich tones in your home. My Christmas wished would be for you to come work your holiday magic in my home.
I'm finally getting around to decking the halls of my home.
we'll be cutting our Christmas tree from the backyard this weekend when my college boy is home. That's sure way to get us in a festive mood.
Do you like playing Christmas music while decorating? For me the music welcomes a wonderful sentiment of the season to the air, as does the aromas of baking.

Okay...I've got a request via my sweet kitty Angel. She would love an 8x10 glossy of Chestnut in his sooo beyond adorable gingerbread ears!! Oh, could you please have him autograph it too, lol.

I've got to say you looked "MARVELOUS" in your party pretties. I'm sure you had an evening to match.

It's good to be back, I hope you get a chance to stop by for a visit.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Those are gorgeous! I would have bought them too! Yes, I think it will make someone smile. Probably many someone's.

Southwest Cottage Designs said...

You have a new follower - me! Lovely blog and believe and dream signs. It's a beautiful thing when a dream becomes a reality - all because you believed in and pursued the dream to make it happen.

turtlemss said...

If you paint your vent the color of your wall, it will not be so obvious. Hint is from the old "Room by Room" show on HGTV.

I think your rooms are beautiful, and I love tour taste!

Peggy, who does not have a blog, yet!

Jane said...

Love these and what great bargains! Your home looks lovely.
