As I mentioned yesterday, the economy is messing with my Mother’s Day Brunch… which is a big deal around here. I change up the theme and color scheme from year to year, and this time, I am going with turquoise and apple green, with pops of tangerine. I knew I wanted to make tissue paper […]
Taming counter-top clutter with canisters.
For months, every day I would wake up and say to myself: “Today’s the day! Today’s the day I am going to clean up the black hole of crap that is next to my computer!” Every night I would go to bed and think, “…tomorrow… I’ll do it tomorrow…” The problem is that it isn’t […]
No-sew curtain panels.
Let me say this out of the gate: I can sew, I just usually choose not to. (OK, I almost ALWAYS choose not to.) I sew with a glue gun. (Don’t you judge me.) I don’t usually buy pre-made curtain panels. I found a great discount fabric store where I can get gorgeous fabrics anywhere […]
Fast, simple, low fat, low calorie Super Salsa. Pass the chips please.
I’ve always been a (lazy) jarred salsa kind of girl. Last summer while camping, we had delicious, fresh salsa that was whipped up by my friend’s 14 year old daughter. I asked for the recipe, but couldn’t recreate it. It just wasn’t the same. I tweaked it and tweaked it and found out that simple […]
So simple, it’s stupid… Dollar Tree make-over.
These little resin birds (and other hideous little figurines) are available in every Dollar Tree, 99 Cent store, etc in the country. Despite the fact that this little birdie was manufactured with gorilla toes, I brought him home and introduced him to my good friend Rustoleum Heirloom White. (Then I sprayed him with a coat […]
Do I make my own decorations? Of course I do!
I love my Christmas Artwork. It says “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” (Handsome Hubby likes my artwork, but says the two wreaths look like a cat killed a bird on them….) I also bling-ed out my FREE chandy, which has now been at […]
Useless, but pretty.
Tis the season for Stuff We Don’t Need. What could be more useless than these….? But you know what? They’re pretty. I’d like ’em if I got them as a gift. You know what else? They’re cheap and easy. You’ll need a heavy duty adhesive (I like Goop), spray paint and glitter or other embellishments. […]
I didn’t make my wreath this year. I usually try to make it from the tree clippings. However, I found a faux-frosty one on clearance at Target (my favorite post-Christmas place!) last January. I needed to add a little to it. Since we’re all white and silver this year, I decided to add pearl beads […]
The Great Halloween Party wrap up.
Handsome Hubby and I hosted a Halloween Party on Saturday night. Thanks to the generosity of Shawn from Seriously, HH and I were fabulous vampires. She loaned us these great costumes. We got compliments on them all night long and people were amazed to hear that a bloggy friend I’ve never actually had the pleasure […]
ANOTHER Quick Halloween Fix…. Redrum
I have never been one for Halloween decor. I was always more of a “harvest time” Halloween decorator… but I sure am having fun putting little scary details around the house this year. Both Conner and Mitch told me they think I’m “going overboard”. Devin probably thinks it, but doesn’t say it, and Grant takes […]
