It's Green and Leopard

Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great day! First off I wanna say thank you to all of my new followers!! I am now over 200 I think a giveaway is in store very soon!! :) A couple weeks ago, I showed you a leopard trunk that I got from Ross. Well, instead of  using it as a storage box, I decided to put some greenery in it. 

Here is the box, just plain by itself.


Here it is with the addition of greenery.


I think it looks so cute now. I saw one online at Kirkland's and it was priced at 14.99. I made mine for 11 dollars and I think it looks just as good if not better. I got the greenery from Hobby Lobby, it was 5 dollars half off.

Here is the Kirkland's one.

I love adding greenery throughout my home, it completes a room I think. As Melissa says it can go with any season. Well, that's it for today guys, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!

It looks fabulous and very chic Ally! I'll have to keep my eye out for trunks and suitcases. I've been seeing others decorate with them and I like it.

Great idea to add the greenery. It does work with all seasons. *Smiles*

Happy weekend to you!

Very pretty and creative look. I purchased a steam mop( Shark-Vac and Steam),and enjoying using it. You and so many others highly recommended the tool for cleaning hardwoods I thought I would try it. Thanks , Emelia. Have a great weekend!

I do like your arrangement better! It's such a great idea to fill the trunk with ivy and yours looks so good with the leopard print. I love green around the house too. Have a super weekend!

Hi Allyson, You were so sweet to respond to my comment.I purchased it from the TSV on QVC. It came with 4 extra pads. I think Bed Bath and Beyond would have it and they mail coupons to home frequently. Thanks for your great blog and much success on your move! Emelia:)
