Not my Mother’s decor…

 

Growing up I can remember my Mom, Aunts, family friends, neighbors (well you get the idea) gathering around the family living room to watch a presentation from some woman dressed in a suit.   What was she peddling – Home Interiors.    I can remember the pictures, candles, fake flowers, and knick knacks plain as day.  Most still hang on the walls of my childhood home.   I don’t know why, but for some odd reason the other day I Googled “Home Interiors”, and learned they have merged with another company, and now they are called Celebrating Home.  I was pleasantly surprised – this didn’t look like my Mother’s home ~ it was casual, fun, and while they still have their fake flowers, I actually found a few things I couldn’t live without.   One of them is the sign shown above.  With the touch of pink flowers, and the small blue robin eggs I fell in love instantly and knew that it was perfect accent for my Spring mantle.

    My Mom used to sell Home Interiors when I was a kid. She loved getting out at night and talking to adults…. and of course our house was filled with it. Its so weird because looking back at that stuff I think “EW i would NEVER buy that” and yet I do have so many fond memories of some of those pieces that just seem so homey to me now.

    Haven’t looked them up recently but maybe I’ll take a look if I’m in need of something.
