I love Halloween and it’s always fun to create spooky little vignettes around the house during the month of October. I am not a gory/scary Halloween person, but I describe my decorating as “Poe Inspired” instead. Kind of creepy but not overtly scary… ravens, black and white color palettes with a small pop of color, […]

An old globe gets a coastal inspired make-over. (Using paper napkins and Mod Podge.)

Sea-Inspired DIY Candle Holders (Made from glass jars & paper napkins.)
