Calling all DIY'ers, have I got a project for you. The May/June 2011 issue of Victoria magazine includes a how-to from potter Maggie Weldon for creating a lace dish that is so beautiful that you'd never guess that the process is so simple. Ms. Weldon uses vintage lace doilies to create her pieces. You can find doilies at vintage stores and antique malls. Victoria

It wasn't easy to narrow the top ten down, but all of the top 10 projects were innovative and showed me something I haven't seen before (or cleverly twisted something I have seen before).

Guest post by Rachael at Talk 2 the Trees. The perfect dress is hard to come by. I like my dresses to be cheap, and long enough. (I’m not a fan of super short dresses!) Cheap and long dresses don’t seem to go hand in hand.. so, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!

I hate the way a coat stand takes up space, so I decided to put hooks in the walls, but that looked terrible.

Living With Lindsay — Creating a Beautiful Home, One Glue Gun Burn at a Time So, I have this giant wall. Well, I have five giant, 2-story walls in my house, but today we are going to focus on one particular wall. I’ll never forget the first time I had friends over to our (then) new house, and one of them looked at it said and said, “How are you going to decorate that?” Uh…well…hmmm…{blank stare}.
