Two Things to Consider When Buying Home Accessories

Hello friends! I took a few days off to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. It was so nice to slow down a bit, relax, and eat delicious food, of course. And just for the record, my 24 pound turkey turned out amazing if I do say so myself :). It was perfectly browned, juicy and delicious and it only took a few hours to cook to the perfect temp. Success!

But even though I enjoyed the break, I’ve missed being here and chatting with you! I’m SO excited December is HERE! Yay! Now that I’m back I’m ready to charge full steam ahead into Christmas decorating and all those fun December-y posts (PS. I didn’t finish the last three scheduled days of my Loving Fall series in November as I intended, but this weekend family came first so maybe we’ll just return to that series next year! You all know I love fall enough for all the days so I think we’ll just move on now to Christmas heheheh!).

Two Things to Consider When Buying Home Accessories
Have I mentioned that you are all invited over for a virtual Christmas tour next Monday (SAY WHAT? I guess I need to get busy!). I’m looking forward to cranking up Charlie Brown and decking the halls! :)

But first…as all the Christmas sales are beginning, I wanted to share a few thoughts and tips about shopping for home accessories. When you have limited space for storage and are on a budget for decor, you obviously can’t buy everything you see or love. You have to make smart choices. But it can be overwhelming to know what is worth buying, because there are so many options and fun seasonal decor to choose from all the time!

Here are two questions I ask myself to help me determine what to buy or what to pass on when it comes to home decor:

1. Is this item season-less?

I absolutely always prefer to have decor that is season-less. I don’t have room (or patience) to pack up and store too much stuff, so if I can jazz it up to feel festive this time of year and then de-festive it (is de-festiving a thing?) for the summer months too, I’m more tempted to add that new accessory to my home.

These wood candlesticks are perfect in every season, simply changing the candles to different colors or styles makes them more festive or pretty for summer. CANDLESTICKS FOR THE WIN! Plus, you can buy them today at 30% off with the discount code listed at the bottom of the post!

2. Could this item go in more than one room or one place in my home?

When I got this fun rustic wood starburst mirror, I planned to hang it in my laundry room. But on its way there, I realized it would also look really cute as a part of my rustic Christmas decor!  Not only is the mirror season-less, but it is versatile too. Instant win. Note: you can order this starburst mirror at DaySpring for 30% off today with the code below!

I’ve talked myself into and out of many home accessories by pondering the answers to those two questions!

Now, with that said, sometimes it’s really fun to find special decor for the seasons or holidays that you switch out to enjoy certain months of the year. I certainly love seasonal things, too! I keep a shelf in my garage for seasonal decor and I’m always excited to bring out the old favorites every year and add them to my old tried and true home decor basics.

So are you doing any Christmas shopping this week?

    Okay so I got a handmade white glass pumpkin with golden stem. I did the same thing- it is somewhat seasonless- well it will cover two seasons plus and it could go in at least two places during that time. Funny, I got one of them and got another for a NYs Eve Wedding present- the bride is classy and loves white and gold. It first drew me in for the latter reason but my hubby loves all things glass so one came home with me too. And that it was half off did not hurt either. Where I am going to store this large white object is beside the point- it is happy being part of the Holiday Season right now!!!

    I would love to buy the starburst table runner!

  172. Michelle

    Hello, thanks so much for the giveaway! I used to shop Dayspring here and there, but stopped because I didn’t really see anything new. I was suprised by all their new, fun & trendy items! And if I won the shopping spree, I would definitely start with that lovely starburst mirror! Thanks again!

  173. Erin G

    There are so many beautiful things on the Dayspring website! I’ve just moved and some of the wall decor items would be wonderful. I like the starburst bookends (that match the mirror) and the the “Words to Live By” tiles & rod set. So cool!

  175. Melissa

    I love that starburst mirror. I also love the Everlasting Light pillows!

    Such a fun give away. Thank you for this opportunity! My niece is getting her first home and I am forwarding your blog to her. Such great ideas for beauty. I love Day Spring but have not been able to afford buying “extras” for our household. Winning this opportunity would be a grand Christmas present for me and my family. I would begin my spree with their Bible cover, cookie jar, and wall words! I do like those wooden candle holders too.

  197. amanda g

    We were recently lucky enough to get a new (to us) kitchen table. Ours was on its last leg (almost literally) and a friend was having a moving sale and was generous enough to give it to us for a great price! So, i’d love to have the reversible table runner and candlesticks to make my new table a little more festive!

  198. Linda V

    The starburst mirror is something along the lines of what I think our house could use and I could see it fitting in more than one room.

  199. Peggy Hoffman

    Love the starburst mirror !
    Going to check out all you recommendations.

  200. Jean

  205. Karen Huber

    I’m trying to transition back to a rustic style. I love French country but somehow more of the French started taking over and less of the country. Those candlesticks are gorgeous! And I know just where I’d put them… Or maybe over there, or there, oooh how about there?

  225. CWirth

    This would be a hard choice, as Dayspring has so many inspirational items!

Thanks for the giveaway!

  251. Diane

    Mmm, candlesticks, table runner, so much pretty.

  252. Erin

    I like the candlesticks, too!
    My favorite easy-to-store Christmas decorations are cards from past years. Each year since I was married, I save one of our Christmas cards and frame it. Then it goes on our mantel the following year- we’re up to four and I love them all.

  253. Heather

    I wouldn’t know where to start! So many beautiful gifts I would love to give to my family. It would truly be amazing to shop there.

  254. Laura

    These look incredible!

  255. marly z.

    The “Celebrate” banner is brilliant. I can think of many wonderful, fun uses for it.

  258. Heather

    I need some new candlesticks!

  259. Melissa Webster

    I love your “buying accessories by-laws.” I tend to be the same way. And when it comes to hanging things, my husband swears by ‘molly-method.’ Gosh–I hate those things. They are too permanent for me,,,what if I change my mind?

  260. teresa

    Thanks for sharing…kind of needed a little kick to get me thinking about Christmas decorating. Love the star-burst mirror. Merry Christmas

  261. Alyson

    Oh how I love those wood candlesticks! Thank you for the chance to win!

    Love Everything:):):)

  268. Antoinette

    Christmas decor is so special! :) I don’t like having to much but when I do have I like for it to be special. :) Mirrors are my favorite :) haha

  269. Jodi

    I love the starburst mirror!

  270. Missy

    I am not a knick-knack person so I, too, give thought to everything I purchase for the home. If I can’t name the “home” for it, then I don’t buy it. This has been learned through expensive experience, for sure! Ha!
    How I would love to purchase the Daily Grace dishware I love so much! I also love the scripture blocks that would fit perfectly in my soon to be finished DIY pipe shelving! Woohoo! Thanks for the chance to win!

  271. Colby

    The mirror for sure! Thanks for the giveaway!

  272. Cheryl

    I love the tableware. Thanks for the giveaway.

  280. Kathy

    Wow…if I win, it’s going to be really hard to decide which items to buy! I love all the neutral colors, so that items can be moved from room to room and used all year-round. I really like the reversible table runner and the tote with such a positive message on it!

  281. Susan H.

    I love the candle sticks. I also love Dayspring. Will be shopping. Thanks.

  282. Beth

    I need some accessories for the new mantle that we just built! Maybe some wall art and candlesticks, and other items to go with them. Thanks for this giveaway offer!

  283. Erin

    what a wonderful giveaway – I love so many things from there!! THX!

  284. Megan C

    Love the glass ornaments!

  285. Jaime Steele

    Such good advice! It takes me hours to put up and take down Christmas!

  286. Judy

    I love items that I can use throughout the house — even furniture. Would love to win!!!!

  287. Diane Westbrook

    I have so many totes filled with Christmas and have decided this year to just use a few with some seasonal greens and pine cones. Simple and yet so Christmas like. I like that I will not have to pack so much away after. Now I just need to donate or give away the rest of it. For the tree I have my Grandmother’s very old ornaments and those I will keep…the rest? time to simplify…and out it goes…what a relief! Love your decorating and I do love Dayspring. I have some of their cards. Thanks for the giveaway….Diane

  288. Joann

    Love those candlesticks….thanks for thechance to win!

  294. Colleen

    We recently welcomed our 4th child. After three boys, we were shocked to welcome a little girl into our family. I am now in the process of decorating her nursery and see so many precious things at Dayspring. I love the “Shine Your Light” pillow and the Starburst mirror.

  295. Laura Baughman

    Hi Melissa. Thank you for inviting us to enter your drawing for the Day Spring shopping spree. If I win, I would order the starburst mirror, the two are better than one pillow, and an Awe & Wonder nativity set. I have always admired these figurines. As always, I enjoy how you decorate your home!

  296. Colleen

    I love your turned wood candlesticks! They would look so lovely in my living room, I’ll have to head to DaySpring and see what else strikes my fancy. . .

  305. Kristen Taylor

    Christmas ornaments and books as gifts would be at the top of my list!!

  306. LindaR

    Love Dayspring so it would be a tough choice …. but I think I would take your advice and choose something that I could use all year round – like the Letterpress blocks. Lots of words to choose from!

  307. Aubrey

    The starburst necklace is adorable! And those candlesticks would be gorgeous on my coffee table…decisions, decisions!

  308. Michelle

    What a beautiful post! I loved the reversible table runner you shared! Day spring is such a great company!

    I would definitely go for the candlestick set. Love them!

  312. Kim

    The candlesticks are timeless and classic!

  313. dawn@joyfulscribblings

  314. Renata

    Thanks for your great decor advice! I was having this same conversation with my husband this weekend! I’ve maybe gone a bit decor crazy with our new house :) heehee… As for DaySpring, I would purchase Ann Voskamp’s, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift, Abide in Him wall decor, and the Everlasting Light wall map. Happy Monday!

  315. Joy

    I love the star burst mirror! Your photo with it and the pine cones in the window is just lovely. The little star garland is neat, too–the kind of thing I could make, but never get around to.

  316. Connie

    I think that I would start with some wooden candlesticks!
    Enjoyed the post today! Thanks!

  317. Christina Pearson

    I’ll take one of everything! But wait, that goes against the two questions that I’m supposed to ask myself, doesn’t it?!

  318. Trisha

    Can’t wait to see your Christmas decor

  319. Pamela

    Great concept! Love your decore

  320. Shannon F.

    I would definitely purchase items for my empty living room!

  321. Kristen Pare

    I am excited to see your Christmas décor! I love the runner with the small gold stars. It would fit perfectly. I am trying to go with same idea when buying from now on. I do not like clutter and want my accessories to be able to float all over the house. Master is on the list for 2015!

  322. Stephanie

    LOvE the starburst mirror!

  323. SueinMtVernon

    I’m hoping by reading your blog, just a smidgeon of your decorating talent will rub off on me. You are such an inspiration. Thanks for the chance to win!

  330. Karen

    Happy December to you!

  331. Maureen Mathews

    I love the sunburst mirror and I never would have thought of taking it off the wall and decorating it in a holiday display on my dining room buffet, but now ideas are dancing around in my head! I also love the candlesticks and the idea of changing up just the candles for the different holidays. I always drag out my gold fancy candlesticks with their special holiday candles but the gold seems too busy all year long. Love all of your ideas and they are better on my limited budget! Thank you!

  332. Mindy

    Love their new block letters and those candlesticks are great! What fun this shopping spree would be!

  333. Jacqui

    I love the inspiration…I was thinking of purchasing some pinecone candles with battery lights in them; they seemed a little expensive; however, they are white and would work in any room of the house throughout the year. I can now see the value in them :)

  334. tammigirl

    I would start with the give thanks wood caddy – I’m a suck for the wood caddy! I love the grateful life cake pedestal, the love came down teapot, and probably more of the caddy – because I can think of MANY uses for it!

  335. Kate

    Yay I can’t wait for the virtual tour!!! I loved looking at the LetterPress blocks and the daily grace items — so many beautiful items! I was enjoying window shopping :)
    Merry Christmas!

  336. Marie

    Wooden necklace

    I would love the Letterpress Blocks for Grace; plus the starburst mirror is beautiful!

    Table linens are my jam . Love that runner.

  344. Pamela

    I would love to purchase the Table Runner it would fit right into my new decor. I’ve been searching for awhile now for something just like this. I love The Inspired Room blog that I happily stumbled upon last month.
    Happy Holidays Everyone.

  345. Gracia @ Gracious Offering

    I love the three wooden candle sticks…with a wonderful message inscribed at the base. So excited for the beginning of Advent season! Immanuel…God with us! How can we not celebrate that! Warmly, Gracia

  346. Emily

    I love that they have gold decor, so on trend. I also love the inspired words of faith that I can add to my home. Dayspring is a great partner!

  347. Audra Mahoney

    If I got to go on a dreamy shopping spree I would definitely get the letterpress blocks, that cute starburst mirror, and another book by Ann Voskamp (we just started her advent book tonight and love it!).

  353. Beverly

    Oh!… I have been wanting a starburst mirror *forever*… That has to top the list… I also LOVE the Willow Tree Nativity sets… So beautiful!… And the dough bowl is a perfect decor item, along with those beautiful candlesticks!… So many pretty, inspiring things <3

  356. Michelle

    Love the blog and your whole concept! It seems most of my things get repurposed with each move I’ve made, only because they are loved items to begin with and because I believe in using what I have.

  357. Sonja

    I just started a mirror wall and that star mirror is SCREAMING my name!!

  358. heidi

    First of all, love your blog…have been following for some time…such a “crisp” home! Day Springs…a new discovery! Love the candleholders! The star mirror would be fun in my bathroom!

  359. Jenn

    Day spring has so many fun things! I love the star mirror and candleholders. There is also a sweet necklace that reminds us of who we are in Christ – “cherished, chosen…”

  360. Kathy

    So many items to choose from! I just got a new hutch/bookcase and need several items to put in it. I could definitely use some tall items and some smaller items. The starburst bookends would be a good start!

  361. Meg S

    That wooden candlestick set is so lovely!

  362. Deb

    Love the mirror … Would make a great entry into any room. Merry Christmas to all~

  363. kathryn

    Oh my goodness, I almost wouldn’t know where to start shopping. I love the style of everything on the site!!!

  365. Kate M

    I love the mirror and the candlesticks and their holiday pillows!All so pretty…

    I really like the reversible table runner and I would get two of the everlasting light star necklace sets. One for me the other for my sister:)

  402. Cynthia

    I love the starburst mirror! It would be beautiful in a powder room, at the end of a hall, by the front door for a quick look before leaving or greeting guests, or any number of places. Talk about versatile, it is a fabulous piece!.

  403. Amy K.

    I like their create-your-own ‘words to live by’ wall art.
    I look forward to your fall and Christmas decorating EVERY year, and can’t wait to buy your book!

    I love the mirror, but the candlesticks are perfect!

    I love the candlesticks so much. I’m a stickler for white/cream candles — but I’d tie a pretty ribbon around them to change them up for the seasons. :)

  408. Regina

    I love the mirror and the table runner. I enjoy your blog so much and very much appreciate you opening your home!

  409. Keri

    I love the candlesticks and the starburst mirror! Just moved into a new home a few months ago, and am trying to decorate slowly with things I really like, rather than quickly just to fill up wall-space. These would both look great!

  410. tricia b

    That mirror is amazing. I’d love to get one of those. Dayspring has some great things.

  422. Karen on Bainbridge Island

    You are so right about buying things with dual purpose. Here is something I’ve learned along the way….buy a two of anything you can. I often have purchased a single lamp, or a shade, or a candlestick or a vase…and then find that if I just had one that matched, I could use that item in a whole different way, or a new location in my home. So, that is a question I ask myself…can I see my self using two, and if the answer is yes, I get a pair.

  423. Paige Dinger

    I am always getting great ideas from you! Thank you!

  424. Pat F.

    Would love to have the candlesticks……timeless!

  425. amanda s

  426. Karen Gill
