I love a wall I can read! Take your favorite quotes and put them up on the walls with this easy, inexpensive idea! Supplies: Canvas (found mine at Hobby Lobby in a 2 pack for $7.99)
I love…LOVE…a diamond-tufted upholstered headboard. I like them in just about any shape and size. I’m just a sucker for diamond tufting. But that deep tufting can be quite intimidating for some DIYers. But it shouldn’t be! Once you learn the process, you’ll wonder who in their right mind would ever pay such an extravagant price for a headboard.
Due to the overwhelming response, I am asking for your support so I can manufacture these and get them in stores. I made some design changes...check out http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/575209219/write-on-lunch-bag and support me! An easy, fun way to make your kids lunch special.
Flowers fade, but beautiful china can be enjoyed long after the last dance. Collect cups and saucers in spring pastels from flea markets, rent them from party rental companies, or, for a sweet touch, borrow them from family members. Stack them high, secure with Museum Wax, set votive candles in the cups, grace every saucer with a single rose or more, and you've got yourself a super-inexpensive centerpiece that's graceful and unique. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Store-bought cushions spring to life when adorned with pretty, handmade Ultrasuede florets. (Ultrasuede doesn't fray, which means the petals won't need to be hemmed.) Scatter them all over one side, or "flower arrange" just a few in one corner.
If I had a nickel for every time my mom has warned “the sun is not your friend,” I could retire tomorrow. Honestly. Instead, my closet is full of sun hats, fedoras, cowboy hats, visors, and various other sun shielding apparati. While it may not suffice as an alternative to sunscreen, kudos to Lola Ehrlich for transforming a simple straw hat into a chic stitched fedora and inspiring us to add a little pizzaz to one of our many hats! Supplies List Start by cutting the ribbon or band off the hat.
Before I moved from Oregon to San Diego to be near my boyfriend (my now husband) we maintained a long distance relationship. A big part of that relationship was writing letters, email and LOTS of little love notes sent back and forth. We both saved all those letters and notes and once in while we will pull them out, spend time shaking our heads and laughing while reading them- so naive and silly we were!
Instead of getting glass put back in our empty frame after it broke, we decided to just hang it on the wall. A friend of ours suggested hanging a wall vase (or two) inside the empty frame and we were happy for the advice. Having fresh flowers in the bedroom is a luxury--and we love that our cat can't reach them. 1. Pottery Barn, Simple Wall Mount Vase (Set of 2).

Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty. Since my morning sickness has gone into full speed (yes, we’re expecting our third this fall!)
During my after-holiday-get-organized mode, I discovered all these past garden projects I had taken pictures of, but never posted them on the blog. Remember that “living wall” I bragged about? Well, it’s a dead wall now, but there is much to be learned, so I’ll post about it soon. I’ll start my 2011 DIY project post with my new hanging gutter garden that will be featured in the upcoming book Garden Up!
Proprio ieri vi avevo detto che le decorazioni per le nostre feste dovrebbero essere facili da fare, belle e perchè no, anche economiche. Vi propongo oggi una selezione di foto che vi aiutano a creare una festa a tema facilmente, non trascurando il particolare ma risparmiando! Come?
I love any reason to pull out my collection of rubber stamps, and I'll never tire of seeing ways to wrap presents with a simple, stylish edge. This gift wrap inspiration comes by way of my friend and wedding photographer Charlotte Jenks Lewis . I love how she created a modern handmade look for wrapping gifts that's also personalized. And with this idea, you can skip the gift tags and splurge on some pretty ribbon instead. If you're on the hunt for alphabet stamps, I spotted an amazing antique set of stamps over in Pretty Tape's shop .
