Blogging From A to Z - 2018 - H is for

Welcome to the letter H in the A to Z Challenge for 2018.  Each day (except Sundays) I will be taking you through the alphabet with different things you can find in Michaels Arts and Crafts store.  H is for Home Decor.

If you don't feel you are particularly crafty and you don't want flower arrangements all over your house, Michaels still has you covered.  I am really in love with these table top water fountains.

There are a few different styles but all are neat I think.  Good for relaxing and meditation...ohhmmm

There was a seaside collection displayed when I was taking these pictures, although there are several different themes throughout the year.  

Some pillows on the bottom shelves here and hanging macrame, sea shells and starfish 

Some cool clocks and lanterns

Pedestals and different lanterns

 A bit of Southwestern here with cacti and message center boards

Wall decor - I like the green mail holder with chalkboard next to the map

More Southwestern Theme

Bicycle Bookends

Pretty jars and serving trays and a wagon wheel!

I need this sign for my craft room!

Even shelves that look like birdcages.

Old fashioned scales and kitchen signs

Don't forget wine glasses!

I couldn't get a good picture of this mirror but I think it is so cool.  It says "Happy looks good on you."  Doesn't that just make you want to smile?

So you see, you don't have to be particularly crafty to shop at Michaels.  There are all kinds of things you can use to decorate your home and backyard.  What do you think?  Prefer the seaside or Southwestern feel?  Want one of those waterfalls?  Tell me and make sure to stop by some of the other A to Z-ers.

(Note:  I decided I should add a disclaimer to these posts because I certainly don't want to give the idea that I am being paid by Michaels to do this or that they are furnishing me with material.  All pictures used in this blog series were taken by me at local Michaels stores, or are my personal pictures and every Michaels store may not have everything shown.)


  1. Since I am a crafty person and usually go to Michaels for something related to yarn, sewing etc. I forget about all the home d├ęcor. I do enjoy looking at it, and occasionally find something on sale. Like the Southwest stuff...of course.

    1. Yes, Sue. There are whole sections of Michaels I hardly knew existed until I started working there and then doing this A to Z.

  2. You definitely need that sign for your crafting room Janet. I've got a lovely little water fountain and it does make a soothing companion for meditation.

    1. Thanks for your permission, Deborah! I'm hoping they go on sale again soon since they've been in the store for a while now.

  3. I would like a tabletop water fountain! It's interesting that the southwest decor is coming back. I recall it being popular in the early 80s. I better get used to it, since I am preparing to move to Arizona.

    1. It wasn't one of my favorites but I do like cacti. The water fountain for sure!

  4. One of my favorite purchases is a set of tall metal flowers that I mix in with my flower beds.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
