Simple Entryway

*this post is sponsored but opinions are all my own. 

Hey Friends! I am so sorry that I didn't get a post up yesterday for Hello Monday! With a holiday in the middle of last week, it just threw me for a loop and this past weekend, we were just plain LAZY!

I have wanted to share a home tour with y'all for a few months now but the whole dishwasher/floor issue has thrown a wrench in that plan. The dishwasher is fixed 🙌 but now I'm waiting to hear from the insurance to get the floors replaced! 😝

I have worked on tweaking a few areas in the living room. I recently shared my quiet corner. Today, I wanted to share my recent "tweaking" of my entryway.

I added this pew bench from Kirkland's. I LOVE it!






The baskets underneath are from Target and they house cozy blankets. If you remember from this post then blankets are a must for me. 


I added some ivy and a small church that I had in my "overflow" of house decor. 


I knew I wanted white pillows so they would blend in with the bench. I picked up this pair of pillows at my local TJ Maxx. If I wasn't able to find the exact pillows that I had in my head then I was going to sew my own set. Ben's grandmother gave me her sewing machine which has sewn some of the most beautiful clothing, curtains, pillows that I have ever seen. I was so honored that she gave me something that was so special to her. I will treasure it forever.
I took a sewing class a few years ago. I would love to brush up on my sewing skills and maybe even purchase a newer machine. Places like the sewing machine would be perfect for me. Sewing Machine is an Atlanta based company offers a wide range of actual machines along with classes. I hope this fall I could take a class once the kids are back in school and we are back on a schedule! 😳 They even offer supplies for my heat press! I can't wait to make a day trip to visit the Sewing Machine


What do you think of my entryway? What's your favorite thing about it? What would you change?

If you can sew what is something that you LOVE to sew? Do you have any tips for someone learning to sew? 
If you wish you could sew, what would you want to make? I can't wait to hear your ideas and tips.
