Yes, yes, I’ve talked about wheat grass before. I’m going to talk about it again, just because I love it so. I love that you can buy it in a pint size container at the grocery store for a buck fifty. (How often do you get a flower arrangement for less than $2?!) I love […]
Silly shutters… more robin’s egg blue.
I haven’t felt too spring-y, but I’m slowly adding a bit of color around here. I have frequently complained about how much I dislike my asymmetrical mantel, and I’m not really ready to tackle it, but I did want to at least do something. I sprayed these smaller with Valspar’s Aqua and leaned them up […]
Making Spring Button Flowers with Bev from Flamingo Toes.
Hi friends. We have been overwhelmed by the love, support and encouraging words that you’ve sent our way. Even though we knew it was coming, the loss of Devin & Conner’s dad is still a difficult thing to process. The boys are doing well and trying to get back into their normal routines. Today […]
Thinking about spring… and inexpensive ways to decorate for it.
In the spirit of blog unpreparedness, I would like to invite you to revisit a post from last spring. Please click here to see how to make a DIY bird’s nest out of things you already have on hand. (In other words, it’s practically free.)
Time to shop for wheat grass…
Wheat grass… I know you can grow it, but I think it’s faster and easier to buy it. These were my thoughts on wheat grass last year…. I haven’t gotten more time in my schedule, so I am on the lookout for a cute container or two and wheat grass in the produce department. […]
Make weathered, shabby chic flower pots using spray paint & candle wax.
I’m on a faux-finishing kick at the moment. Last week I showed you how to make a faux rust effect using spray paint and salt. Today I wanted to show you how to create the look of those chippy, weathered, shabby chic flower pots and other garden items. Have you priced them? Crazy! I […]
So many possibilities with this burlap wreath! A guest post from Jen at Scissors & Spatulas.
Burlap. We all love it, right? Jen at Scissors and Spatulas made an adorable burlap wreath and she has been kind enough to come on over and share the tutorial. Not only is this wreath super cute, it can be modified for any season or occasion. Hey y’all! I’m Jen and I’m from good ole […]
Mother’s Day Wrap-up. No pictures of people, but pictures of Pom-Poms. Duh.
I just washed and put away the last champagne flute from our annual Mother’s Day Brunch. This is the 5th one we’ve hosted, and each time it gets a little easier to put together. I change the theme and/or color scheme each year. I was going to do this turquoise and apple green, with pops […]
Yes, you can spray paint tissue paper.
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 […]
Pink cabbage is just plain wrong.
So the other day I was in my local Goodwill (Yes…. The one that sells rocks…) and I came across this. It clearly had a lid at some point in its life, but the lid was missing and there was a chip on the top of it.Oh. And it was pink. Who has ever heard […]
