Because we are in Southern California, we’re able to be outside most of the year. We do a lot of entertaining and much of it is on our patio. It’s nice to change up the look of our patio furniture, and we can do so pretty regularly with just a little fabric and a glue […]
A while back I upcycled a boring, everyday, can’t swing a dead cat with out hitting one, terra cotta flower pot into a shabby chic, chippy pot by using spray paint and candle wax. Click here to see the full tutorial. For this upcycled pot transformation we use many of the same materials and techniques, but we’re […]
I love fresh flowers. I love Hydrangeas. I will even tolerate dried flowers…. as long as they’re Hydrangeas. Here’s an easy way to dry them, and it’s amazing how long they will keep! First, find yourself a Hydrangea bush. If your neighbors have one and you don’t… make friends with your neighbors. Go ahead and […]
The idea was that we would each re-do a lamp and share how they turned out. Barbara’s is adorable, but mine looks like an extra from Miami Vice, trying to sneak into a tea party.
I originally thought I would do a blue ombre paint technique on the lamp and then wrap/recover the shade with jute. I kind of wanted a beachy look for summer evenings out on our patio. I still think it would have looked cute and might have to try it.
This easy DIY mat and frame project doesn’t require tools, just burlap, ribbon and tape.

Easter seems like it’s coming so early this year! Why is it in March? I don’t get it. Half the country is still buried in snow, and even here in normally sunny SoCal the weather doesn’t quite feel like spring yet. At any rate, I’m not ready for it. I can’t get on board with […]
I’m so lucky today to have my friend Shannon from Madigan Made here to share this cute project with you. It’s one of those projects that make me want to smack myself in the forehead and say “Oh my gosh! How brilliant is that, and why didn’t I think of that!?!” I just love these […]
Last month I shared what I saw and what I liked at the CHA winter trade show. I wrote about new products I was excited about and the things I saw that inspired me. However, the reason that I was there in the first place was to share how I make these faux robin eggs […]
