T.J.Maxx and Marshalls Organizational Expert, Amelia Meena’s Tips for the New Year

 

new years date 2017 written in snow

It’s a new year – a time for new beginnings and positive changes.

Some people like to make resolutions. Popular resolutions include eat healthier, lose weight, exercise more, quit smoking and get organized. Some people also like to make changes, whether it’s a new wardrobe, a new haircut or simply add a few new piece of furniture or home decor to their home.

Here are some great tips to give your home a fresh start with room-by-room organization to help you start off the year with a clean slate. Check out stores like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls that have a variety of high quality furniture and home décor, all at amazing prices. Here are just a few ways to get organized and take charge of your space.

The Kitchen:

Tackle the mail pile and junk drawer head on by hanging a decorative magazine rack as a mail sorter. You can also hang multiple sorters in a row so each family member has a designated place to store on-the-go essentials.

If you have limited counter top space, consider purchasing an industrial style rolling stand to serve as a place to house your frequently used cookware. Look for one that also features a wine rack, so you can easily transition this piece to be used as a bar when entertaining guests. Stores like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls are great places to shop for quality kitchenware pieces at amazing prices.

Color code your kitchen to keep it looking neat and streamlined. Consider picking a monochromatic color scheme for your cookware and everyday essentials to help bring order among bulky pots and pans. 

With cooking and entertaining kicked into high gear now throughout the New Year, the best way to prime your kitchen for upcoming festivities is to focus on decluttering your counter space. Items used once a month or less should be kept on higher shelves or in the back of cabinets.

Restyle your pantry by creating continuity with all the same size and style food canisters. Consider using see-through or wired storage baskets for easy grab-and-go snacks.

The Living Room

To minimize the mess and maximize the cleanliness, choose an organizing approach that provides style and function. Select a piece of furniture with storage like a rustic-style trunk or classic ottoman to house cozy essentials, including extra blankets and throw pillows, that can also provide extra entertaining space or extra seating when guests are over.

In smaller areas, if you’re looking to add extra storage without the bulk, try a ladder shelf. It’s a great alternative to a standard book shelf, as the shelves narrow towards the top and keeps the room feeling more open. You can also use a decorative ladder as a way to display beautiful throw blankets versus taking up prime seating real estate on a couch. Places like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls have a wide variety of home furnishings that can transform any space at amazing prices.

To keep your coffee table tidy, try using a serving tray to house decor elements. Instead of stacking items like coffee table books, consider displaying them out in a neat grid and layering the rest of your pieces on top. If you want to opt for a more minimalist look, using a rectangular tray on a round table or ottoman creates an effective geometric style. I also recommend finding a decorative place such as a wooden jewelry box for utility pieces like remotes and electronics.

2

The Bedroom:

Your day begins and ends in the bedroom so it should be the most stress-free, relaxing room in the home. Beginning with the nightstand, invest in a sophisticated bedside table with drawers that provide a neat and organized spot for your nighttime needs. Limit the number of items on the top of your nightstand to two – three, focusing on your everyday essentials such as a lamp or clock and one decorative item like a fresh succulent, which serves as a calming accent piece.

If the surface area in your bedroom is scarce, use a wall-mounted jewelry hanger with a variety of hooks. For smaller-size jewelry like rings or pins, instead of using a bulky jewelry box, opt for small decorative bowls to store your go-to baubles.

Create a turnkey vanity space by using a stylish bar cart to display your favorite perfumes and make-up. You can find great accent furniture and décor at places like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls that can be repurposed to serve a different function than intended without compromising the quality and style.

A closet can easily become packed at the seams and cause unnecessary clutter, so to clear up storage space add stylish hooks to your bedroom walls to hang and display your favorite handbags or scarves during the cool winter months. 

3

The Home Office:

To keep a clean workspace, opt for a stylish file cabinet on wheels. This allows you to easily access important papers, but can also act as additional desk space when needed. Remember to also use labels and color coordinated folders to easily keep track of where your papers are stored to avoid creating a “catch all pile” on the top of your desk.  Check out the incredible home section at T.J.Maxx and Marshalls for high quality items at an incredible value.

Look up! Utilize your wall space to hang your to-do lists, calendar reminders and more. This trick helps to further declutter your desktop area, and keeps those important items top of mind. A letter organizer also serves as a great place to store notebooks in a designated area.

If space is tight and you can’t (or don’t need to) dedicate a whole room to act as a home office, use a credenza as a multifunctional piece of furniture to neatly disguise your work station when entertaining guests.

Deck your halls with beautiful decor from Tree Classics

 

Just a FEW of our holiday decorations.

Just a FEW of our holiday decorations.

When it comes to the holidays, I LOVE to decorate. I decorate every spot in my home – including the bathroom, kitchen and even our hallway/entrance way.

Just the other day we had a service man come over to repair something and he said he was impressed by how much decorations we had. He said his wife goes all out when it come to decorating too, but she had nothing on me.

I think our decorations are tasteful, fun and eclectic. I try not to be “tacky.” We do have a red velvet dog that reads “Merry Christmas” (it belonged to my husband’s parents) and the kitschy plastic light up Santa, but I consider those fun decorations, not tacky. Especially because they have a lot of memories attached to them.

We are one of the very few people who decorate our balcony in our condo complex. I’ve had people actually thank us for taking the time to decorate our balcony – even people who live in other parts of our complex who happen to drive  by our building. Those compliments always make me feel good.

Recently I was given the opportunity to try some new decorations – a wreath and garland from Tree Classics. Tree Classics makes the world’s finest artificial trees, wreaths and garland. They truly look real.

We’d love to have a real tree, but we worry about it being in direct light (it would have to be placed in front of our sliding glass doors) and with five cats and a dog, we shutter to think about them drinking the water for the tree. It’s bad enough they chew on our fake tree’s needles, let alone a real tree.

OK... our Star Wars "Death Star" tree topper MIGHT be seen as "tacky" to some people. But not to our (almost) life size Darth Vadar. He approves. LOL!

OK… our Star Wars “Death Star” tree topper MIGHT be seen as “tacky” to some people. But not to our (almost) life size Darth Vadar. He approves. LOL!

I do miss the look (and smell) of a real tree. Maybe some day we can have one again (I used to have a real tree growing up). Plus I love the idea of visiting a tree farm to cut down our own tree. I want to experience that one day.

We do have a wreath for our front door, but it’s made out of bent tree branches (I’m not sure if they are even real) and has caroling cats on the front. It’s cute, but that is about it.

Tree Classics sent me the most gorgeous wreath for our front door. I received to review their Venetian Elegance Christmas Wreath.

The Venetian Elegance Christmas Wreath and Garland are one of Tree Classics’ time-honored favorites. Decorated with pine cones, bronze ornaments, gold streaks, and red flowers, the wreath and garland create a festive ambiance that everyone will recall happily for years to come.

The Venetian Elegance Wreath is a beautiful all-weather wreath for both indoor and outdoor use. Sporting a mix of PVC and real pine needles, this wreath is made from flame-proof material that makes it safe to use during this most festive of holidays. The Venetian Elegance Christmas Garland is perfect for doorways or atop the mantel, and its sparkling clear lights will add a unique glow to your family’s holiday activities.

The one we have is HUGE. It’s 34″ and it fills up the entire door. It’s a wee bit bigger than I anticipated, but none the less it’s a gorgeous wreath. Simply stunning. All of our neighbors have complimented us on it and one even questioned if it was real or not.

Here it is on our front door.

wreath

This wreath lights up. It comes with white lights. All you need to do is add batteries to the battery pack. I intentionally left the area where the on/off switch and batteries are in the photo so you can see that it’s convenient to turn on/off. You don’t need to wrestle with it, unlike our Christmas tree. I can never find the on/off switch for the lights buried in the tree.

The on/off switch is to the bottom left where that white spot is on the wreath. Once the batteries are installed the battery box blends in with the wreath. You don’t see it unless you are looking for it.

I tried to get a good close up of the wreath so you can see the detail, but the photo didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped it would. It truly does look very real and the beautiful embellishments really add to this gorgeous wreath.

wreath-2

Sadly, I have found that putting the lights on is pointless. The lights in the hallway are always on (24/7) so the beautiful white lights on this wreath don’t really get noticed.

Next year when we decorate I am going to hang this wreath on the wall in our living room. It’s a blank wall for the most part (we do have one huge photo hanging on it). That way we can not only enjoy the wreath all the time, but also because we can turn the lights on and enjoy them as well.

Here is a photo of the wreath with the lights on (a much better, professional photo).

with-lights

There are just enough lights to give it a bit of sparkle without going over board. A gorgeous wreath like this doesn’t need colorful or flashing lights. Simple, subtle white lights are all it needs. In fact, it’s so beautiful that it doesn’t need lights at all.

In addition to the lovely wreath I also received a 12′ strand of matching Venetian Elegance Christmas Garland, which also lights up. The garland needs to be plugged in.

Both the garland and this particular wreath – due to the fact they light up – are fine for indoor/outdoor use as long as they are not exposed to the elements too much outside.

An older photo of our balcony. We’ve since added a small tree and a lamp post.

Originally the garland was going to be wrapped around our balcony railing, but the raining does get exposed to the snow and rain, so I didn’t want to chance it.

We also considered wrapping it on the outside of our balcony doors, but we worried about the same thing. Snow and rain does reach that far, even though it’s covered. In addition, the condo board just put up new siding this past summer and they frown upon (and complain LOUDLY) if you attach anything to the building (nails, hooks…) so we opted to use the garland inside.

Our first choice was over the opening to the hallway (from the hallway to the living room) that way we could enjoy it all the time. Plus there is a plug in that area, so that worked out perfectly.

I purchased a few 3M Command Hooks (the kind you see advertised on TV). They don’t damage the wall, so we figured that would be the perfect way to hang the garland without adding nails to the wall.

I purchased hooks that would hold four pounds, figuring that was good for the garland (plus it was the heaviest ones I could find). We followed the direction to a tee, but when we went to hang the garland we found that the garland was too thick and wouldn’t fit in the hook part. No matter how we tried to get it to fit, it wouldn’t fit. It was also heavier than expected and two of the four hooks popped off the wall.

My husband needs to figure out another viable option for hanging the garland. In the meantime we hung it in the dining room around our window. It actually looks good there and we can enjoy it all the time since we can see into the dining room from the living room.

These photos turned out a bit better than the ones for the wreath.

garland-1

garland-2

garland-3

garland-4

I love the way it looks. I especially love how the light dances off the ceiling.

As you can see from the photos the garland is adorned with pine cones, flowers and other beautiful things.

The photos really don’t do this justice. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate it.

Both the wreath and garland (Venetian Elegance) are available in different sizes as well as without lights. They also have a variety of styles too. Here are just a few examples.

Wreath and garland are each sold separately.

Tree Classics also carries tree toppers, tree skirts, ornaments, storage bags, lights, swag, stockings and of course – Christmas Trees! They even have trees that snap together quickly and easily.

Celebrate Halloween with Teleflora’s NEW Trick & Treat Bouquet

 

halloween night

When you think about Halloween, what comes to mind? Candy? Costumes? Scary Movies? Flowers?

Flowers?

It’s true. Not too many people would think of beautiful floral “boo-quets” for the Halloween season, but that doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t be welcomed by a lucky recipient. A Halloween bouquet would also be lovely for a Halloween party. It would also be a great thing to send to someone who is a “shut in” and doesn’t get out often, or for people like my father and stepmother who don’t want to get fully decorated for Halloween, but would still like to have a few things around their home to celebrate the holiday.

Teleflora’s NEW Halloween bouquet that is perfect for decorating a spooky treat table or as a gift for your Halloween party hostess.

Teleflora’s NEW Trick & Treat Bouquet (Price starts at $54.95; available on Teleflora.com) makes the perfect decoration or gift! This bright and boo-tiful Halloween bouquet includes red spray roses, yellow sunflowers, orange daisy and burgundy spray chrysanthemums, curly willow, orange berries, and yellow oak leaves. The bouquet arrives ready to enjoy in an adorable pumpkin keepsake container…ideal for candy or other fun treats, offering long-lasting enjoyment.

Teleflora was kind enough to send me the bouquet to check out for myself. If you follow me on Instagram (SheScribes) you might have already seen a picture of it.

I have the Trick & Treat Bouquet sitting on our dining room table as a centerpiece. It’s surrounded by autumn leaf garland and autumn themed candles. Our skeleton is also seated at our table, so “pretty” and “creepy” theme going on.

teleflora

I absolutely LOVE the fall colors in this bouquet. The flowers are beautiful and the colors are ideal for the fall season with the bright reds, oranges and yellows.

Mine looks a wee bit different than the one featured on the Teleflora website, but that is OK. Each one is handmade when ordered, so there are always going to be slight variations. Mine didn’t have the berries or the leaves in the bouquet, and the bats are not hanging the same way (mine are sitting on a clear, plastic pick). But that’s OK. It’s still just as lovely.

Believe it or not, Teleflora has a lot of beautiful Halloween themed arrangements. Here are just a few.

Teleflora has arrangements for every holiday, season and occasion. They also have a variety of options so that you can find one that fits your budget.

Boo… Frightfully fun Halloween decor from Oriental Trading

 

Halloween

I LOVE to decorate for the holidays. It’s one of my favorite things to do. Our basement storage area is mostly filled with holiday and seasonal decorations. Only a corner of our storage space is filled with miscellaneous stuff.

Each year I love to get new pieces to decorate with so that I can rotate things around so that we are not using the same decorations all the time. There are a few things we make sure to put out year after year (mostly ones with sentimental attachments). Other things we put out every other year so that we never have the same display on our balcony or in our home year after year.

Decorations can be expensive, unless you know where to shop. One affordable place to shop for not only Halloween decorations, but also costumes, treats and party supplies, is Oriental Trading.

I have been shopping at Oriental Trading for years, ever since my kids were little. I used to buy gifts for their classmates from Oriental Trading. I found them to be a great resource for affordable, quality items – especially if you need to buy thing in bulk. Of course not all things are sold in bulk. The newest additions to our Halloween collection are sold individually.

This year we added three new eerie (and fun!) Halloween decorations from Oriental Trading.

oriental-trading-mummy

One of my favorite is the Standing Mummy (item #IN-13709676). He is so creepy looking! He’s also life size (he’s actually taller than me when he’s standing on his stand).

standing-mummy-13709676

Space is something that we don’t have a lot of in our home, or in the storage room. What I love about the Mummy is that he comes apart easily and can be stored in a regular storage box. His upper torso and head are made out of Styrofoam, as is his feet. The rest of the body are metal rods that come apart when you are ready to pack him away.

He looks pretty realistic too.

If you follow me on Instagram (SheScribes) you might have seen the post I made about the Mummy.

mummy

Another fun Halloween decoration we added to our creepy collection is the Ivory Hanging Angel of Death (Itam #IN-13576234).

This Halloween decoration is light weight and could be hung from the wall, ceiling or on our case, attached to the railing on our balcony.

The Angel of Death has bendable wings so that you can configure it to your liking.

It’s approximately 36″ in length, but most of that is the robe that it’s wearing, which is made out of a gauze like material.

He/She is pretty creepy looking. I love it!

angel

We have a similar hanging decoration, also from Oriental Trading. The other one is a Light Up Hanging Reaper (Item #IN-13636867).

The Hanging Reaper measures 63″ in length, but most of that is his robe.

The Hanging Reaper’s eyes glow red, but he requires 3 AG watch batteries, which are not included. There is a set up on it to let you know what it will look like when the eyes light up, but that part has to be removed when you add the batteries. Right now we don’t have batteries in it only because I haven’t had a chance to pick them up. I will before Halloween comes around.

Currently the Hanging Reaper is leaning over our balcony, staring at people who walk up the stairs and on the balcony in front of our building.

reaper

All three items from Oriental Trading are hanging up (or standing) on our balcony. I tried to get a good picture of them but it wasn’t easy with the cellphone camera (my regular camera is broken).

img_9868

You can see the Light Up Hanging Reaper on the left corner (it almost looks like he’s smiling) and the Angel of Death in the middle. Just behind the Angle of Death you can see the Mummy.

balcony

Above is another shot of our balcony (further away). You can see the Grim Reaper, Angel of Death and Mummy. I do believe the other black creepy figure on the other corner is also from Oriental Trading. In fact, a lot of Halloween decorations in our home are from Oriental Trading.

If you would like to see what other Halloween products available from Oriental Trading (decorations, costumes, party supplies, trick-or-treat goodies), visit their Halloween page. You can also visit OrientalTrading.com.

Oriental Trading is also found on social media. All of their links are found on their website.

What do you think of our new decorations? Are they the kind of decorations you use to decorate your home for Halloween?

Do you love candles? You have never seen candles like THIS before

 

Scented Candles

There are a few thing in life that I have a “weakness” for (meaning I can’t resist buying them) – scented oils, scented household products, holiday decorations and candles. I can’t walk into a store like Yankee Candle or Bath & Body Works without breaking out into a sweat because I MUST buy everything I see. Obviously I don’t buy everything but I almost always buy something.

I adore candles. I find them to be so beautiful and mesmerizing. Sadly, having five cats, a dog and teenagers limits the amount of real candles I can use. I have several very realistic candles. REAL candles I burn on my kitchen counter so that they are away from our pets.

I love real candles. I love the way they smell and how their scent lingers in the air. I’d burn candles every day all year round if it was possible.

Have you ever come across a candle that was just too beautiful to burn? It’s more like a piece of art than a candle? I have a few like that. I use them as decorations (they are holiday ones). I can’t ever seen me burning them, unless we were in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and we needed light. Ha Ha.

There are pretty candles and then there are candles that mere words cannot describe. Such is the case with the Couture Faberge Egg Candles made by Suzie Sharratt. Her handmade candles are adorned with Swarovski crystals, Italian Lace, pearls, bejeweled fabrics, and vintage pieces. They are functioning candles, but that is secondary. They mostly amazing pieces of art – each one meticulously made by hand by Suzie herself.

Here are a few examples of the Couture Faberge Egg and Pillar Candles Suzie has made.

1 2 3 4 5

How stunning!

You can see why I refer to these as a piece of art. You could burn them like a regular candle if you wanted to – but why would you want to destroy the beautiful decorations?

Suzie sent me a candle to review.

When the package arrived I was stunned by how beautiful the packaging was. Suzie didn’t just toss the candle into a box. She carefully wrapped up the candle in a beautifully decorated box. She even included lovely “charms” including the letter “K” (my initial), a  heart and a broach I plan on putting on my cardigan when the weather gets a bit colder.

image1

image2

You can notice the broach/pin in the center of the ribbon on the box (the lovely “K” charm is seen to the side). The heart charm was dangling from the candle’s wrapper.

I plan on putting the heart and “K” charm on a ribbon and hanging them from my car’s rear view mirror.

The wrapping was done so nicely that I didn’t want to unwrap the box. I wanted to leave it “as is” but I was too excited to see the candle so I had to tear into it.

If you were giving one of these candles as a gift you would not need to wrap it. Suzie does a beautiful wrapping job.

Suzie made the candle with me in mind. She does make custom candles. Simply reach out to her and let her know what you want.

I told Suzie that my favorite color was green, and most of the walls in my home are green. She took that into consideration and made me a green candle. She also knew my birthstone is Emerald and she incorporated one of those into the design as well.

The candle is HUGE and heavy. I was surprised by that. If you were to burn a candle of this size I’m sure it would last for a very long time.

Look at all the detail and artwork put into the design of this special candle.

Candle 1

Candle 2

Candle 3

Candle 4

Candle 5

I love it!

The candle appears a bit blue at times but I can assure you it’s a light green color.

I have the candle resting on a cork coaster until I find a nice teacup saucer to rest it on. I worry about wax getting on the furniture.

The candle proudly rests on top of the bookcase next to our television in the living room. Every day I gaze upon it. It’s stunning and oh so beautiful.

A candle like this is a showpiece for you home and a wonderful conversation starter.

A candle like this would make an amazing gift. I could see one of these candles as a centerpiece at a bridal party table (the one where the bride and groom site). This would also make a great house warming gift as well as a gift for someone special who adores candles and beautiful things.

The candles are not inexpensive, however you have to take into the consideration that each one is handmade with Swarovski crystals, Italian Lace, pearls, bejeweled fabrics, and vintage pieces. The accent pieces alone are not cheap. There is a also a lot of time that goes into not only making the candle, but decorating it piece by piece too.

If you are interested in seeing more of Suzie Sharratt’s breathtaking designs, visit SuzieSharrattDesigns.com. You can also check her out on social media – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Suzie also makes special candles to celebrate people’s sobriety. I think that is a fabulous idea! If you or a loved one would like to celebrate sobriety, check out her beautiful candle deigns.

What do you thing about Suzie Sharratt’s candles? Would you want to own one like this? If you owned one, where would you put it? Would you use it as a centerpiece? Display it on a mantle? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Decorate your space with My Wonderful Walls

 

1916574_194817173972_4198891_n

It took me a year to decorate the dining room with those stencils (the bookcase was temporarily in the dining room because the Christmas tree was in it’s place).

I LOVE to decorate our home. I think I should have been an interior designer. I have a knack for decorating.

Many years ago (about 25+ years!), I worked with my brother in law. He had a business on main street. His store front had two giant display windows. The only thing that he had in the windows as a hanging sign with his business name and number on it.

Just before Christmas as I asked the office manager if I could decorate the windows for the holiday. She told me to “go for it,” and that I did. I decorated both windows.

The office manager would tell me about people who would  walk in from the street just to compliment the windows. She even told me cars would drive slowly past the shop which she assumed were people also checking out the fun window displays. That made me feel awesome!

Display

Sorry for the poor quality. This photo is 25+ years old. This is part of the window display I did for my brother in law’s business (I blocked out the name). There was another display in another window (no picture available).

My own home is no different. I love to decorate.

Once I had the idea of turning our dining room into a garden. It took me a year to accomplish but using stencils I decorated the entire room from floor to ceiling with flowers, animals, grass and even a five foot tree and garden gate. Sadly, after staring at it for a year while I worked on it I got bored with it quickly. About a year after that we had painted over it. I have a few other spots on the walls in other other rooms that I stenciled and painted over it when I got bored.

A few years ago I discovered wall “stickers.” They are just like stickers, but they were made for the wall. Some even had wallpaper glue on the back of them. They were permanent. I enjoyed them too but when you are bored with them or want to change up the look of the room you have to use wallpaper remover to get them off (and they REALLY stick to the walls too).

Thank goodness for wall decor like the kind you find at My Wonderful Walls. My Wonderful Walls offers “stickers,” or some might say “decals,”that do NOT permanently stick to walls. They are made from a special fabric-like material and can be removed and re-positioned WITHOUT sticking or causing damage to your walls. These are PERFECT for someone like me who tends to get bored with things quickly and often.

Some people might assume wall stickers/decals are more for children’s rooms or nurseries. That is not the case at all. My Wonderful Walls has plenty of designs that would work well in any room of your home, as well as for most adults. Here are just a few examples.

265-pic

661-1-abstract-landscape-mengazah-ontario-canada_grande

688-1-abstract-nature-painting-watercolors

These are decals/stickers – not actual framed or canvas art. However, it look really real. Best of all there you don’t have to put holes in your walls (great news for renters) and you can take them down, move them around, or replace them any time you see fit without damaging your walls.

My Wonderful Walls decals/stickers come as individual pieces (pictured above) to complete sets.

Here are some examples of designs/sets available for children.

transport-small-room-1

Some can even be personalized, like the name “Elliott” on the plane banner (above) and the farm name (also above) on the silo.

I was asked to review a set of wall stickers/decals from My Wonderful Walls.

I love animals (we have five cats, a dog and a Goldfish) and I wanted something to jazz up our entry way. After much consideration I picked the Dog and Cat Wall Sticker Kit.

paws-park-room_copy-small_grande

The reason why I chose this one is because we have five cats and a dog (plus a Goldfish) and I love animals.

I wanted to use these decals to decorate our main entry way. Its painted a dull yellow color and it’s VERY boring to look at. I wanted to add something fun to it to welcome people who come into our home.

Our friends and family know how much we love animals, so it seemed like the perfect fit to use this set to decorate the entry way.

Here are some shots of the decals in our hallway.

These decals are on the closet doors

As you can see, these really add a touch of whimsy to our otherwise boring hallway.

Some people might think our placement of the decals are a bit odd, but if you knew us you’d know that we tend to “march to the beat of our own drums.”

These are really easy to apply. Simply clean off the wall where you are going to apply them (a little soap and water with a soft cloth is fine). Then let the area dry completely.

Once you are ready simply peel the wall decal off the backing and apply it to your wall. It’s that easy!

I was worried about these sticking to our walls and causing paint to peel off when you peel the decal off (I have had that happen with other decals). That did not happen with these. A few decals I had to remove because I didn’t like the placement or they were crooked. They peeled off easily and reapplied just fine.

Even one of our cats tried to peel off the cat seated on the chair rail (the one next to the fish bones). He managed to peel some of it up. I simply peeled it off and reapplied it. There was no damage to the wall or the decal.

These are a lot of fun and an easy and affordable way to add some fun designs to your home decor. They are also easy to remove so you can switch things up whenever you want.

I am totally in love with the pet decals we have and I plan on buying more for our bathroom (a different design).
