Hello all! I have another fabulous and talented blogger stopping by to share a project with you today. Honestly, Carolyn from homework is always coming up with the most beautiful and and elegant ideas! Hi V Spot readers. I’m Carolyn from homework and I’m guest posting here today to help Vivienne out while she focuses on […]
Today’s guest post is from this fabulous blogger that I met on twitter, discovered we were both Southern California girls and decided to host The SoCal Social together. We totally hit it off and I am so glad we’re friends. She is one of the nicest people ever, super duper creative, has fabulous jewelry tutorials, […]
Want to make your own scented, layered jar candles? Want to do it, using items you already have on hand..? Practically for free..? It’s easy! I have a little problem…. you know those candles you buy that smell amazing, but the wick burns down through the middle of them and you’re left with a bunch […]
When a big wind storm blew a ton of bark off our tree, I decided to upcycle some glass jars and make tree bark hurricane lanterns and candle holders.
The other week I shared how I fixed chewed up, grody planters and then made lit, spider topiaries for them. As promised, here’s how I made the hanging lanterns for the center, just using empty glass jars. We all have eleventy billion empty jars laying around, right?

Last year, Sandra from Sawdust & Paper Scraps made a very cool Halloween candelabra, and I really, really wanted to make one too, but didn’t get around to it. (I met Sandra at The Haven Conference last June, and I must confess I have quite the Girl Crush on her… she is awesome!) Sandra’s is a fab tutorial on […]
They aren’t replanted yet, but today I wanted to show you how I saved a couple of old flower pots. I have a couple of planters that have been around here for quite a while. I like the style of them, and I have repainted them several times over in order to get more life […]
We all have them… a stash of shopping bags. It bugs me that they are usually the perfect size for a gift bag, but you can’t very well give the gift of Legos and put them in a Ann Taylor bag, now can you? (Because that would be weird.) Fortunately, it’s totally possible to turn […]
