DOWN HOME ON MAIN STREET

Ever walk down Main Street, U.S.A. and you feel like you’re home? Yep, me too. Filled with the excitement of seeing the Castle at the end of the street and the anticipation of the adventures that lay beyond, Main Street, U.S.A. is the entrance to a place of happiness and a gateway to magical memories.

But Main Street, U.S.A. has an appeal of it’s own. THIS IS THE PLACE where the magic truly begins. A walk down Main Street, U.S.A. is like is like a stroll down America’s memory lane of simpler times, beautiful buildings and a friendly atmosphere. 

From the moment we step through the tunnel, wonder and allure greets us as we come to a Victorian-themed Main Street. Filled with hometown staples as the Main Street Confectionary, the Main Street Cinema, and the Main Street Bakery all adorned with ornate decorations. With red brick patterned walkways lined with quaint gas and electric lamps and a street with streetcar tracks; we begin to feel the style and sense of a time and place long since passed.

This is only the beginning of the charm Main Street, U.S.A. brings. The sounds of ragtime sung by the Main Street Trolley Singers and the Dapper Dans, the smell of freshly baked cookies and waffle cones, the wondrous heartbeats of the parades, the smiles of your family, friends and everyone around you…. there is simply nothing else like it.

It’s moments like these that bring the warmth and familiarity of a down-home, small-town style and charm to the most Magical Place on Earth and it shouldn’t be forgotten. With a graceful nod to Main Street, U.S.A.’s allure, I’d like to bring the magic of Disney’s stories and characters into our homes.

Since Disney is known for dreamers and do-ers, I’ll be posting Do-It-Yourself Disney inspired home décor projects with the glamorous style and charm as Main Street, U.S.A. brings. Around here, we believe everyone has that bibbidi-bobbidi-boo magic so gather up your wand, pixie dust and let’s create something magical!

 

VALERIE

Hiya Pal! I’m Valerie, but you can call me Val or ValPal because we’re pretty much besties now! I am the crafter and chief magical maker of Down Home on Main Street. Though, I don’t actually live on Main Street, Main Street U.S.A feels like home, which you might have already guessed that based on the information above but it also feels like home because it is where I worked as a participant of the Disney College Program. I got to work at the heart of Main Street, U.S.A. and it was absolutely amazing! It’s the best of the lands Magic Kingdom has to offer, BUT I might be a little biased 😉

I am a maker of way back when, coming from a line of artists and creatives – Great Grandpa was an architect, Grandma painted beautiful portraits and landscapes, Dad makes wonderful stain-glass art, so it’s no wonder the I got the crafters DIY gene. I am always looking for ways to add personalization to a space to make it feel comfortable and homey. And it’s no secret that I love Disney so I took to creating DIY Disney inspired home décor pieces to add that magical touch to home spaces.
