Tulle skirt is usually associated with lightness, chic and style. So many times I dreamed about one, especially watching dancing ballerinas.

Upcycled designs often emphasize radical do-it-yourself transformations, but some of the most simple ideas can have dramatic impacts. These clothing conversions illustrate the ease with which people can upcycle ordinary objects and make them extraordinary, turning formless junk shirts clothes into elegant tops, bottoms and sexy dresses. Mari Santos does more than just recycle small-scale clothing extras into new, well-fitting and sufficiently stylish upcycled outfits – she shows how much potential exists in upcycling extremely plain everyday objects, things we would normally trash without a second look.
I have an extra cute tutorial today that I know you’re just going to love! This beaded bracelet is super easy to make and ever so fun to wear. I saw a similar bracelet to this one recently at Bloomingdale’s while I was pulling products for a fashion post. So I thought these might be kind of cool to make. And I was right.
It's hard to find a good present for our grandma (actually, she's my mom, but Anya's grandma). "I have everything," she says always. Ok, we will not buy a present, we will make it! My mom has a beautiful garden in Russia. She grows everything there: potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, apples, strawberries, black and red currants, gooseberries... and it's not all.
Displayed on a shelf in the entry way of my mother’s home is a book entitled To A Child Love Is Spelled T-I-M-E . I have often thought about that statement and how much truth it holds. It’s easy for us to say “I love you” but those three words, devoid of action and the gift of our quality time, are simply that—just words. As we celebrate this season of sentiment and affection, let us show our littlest valentines just how special they really are.
Did y’all know that you can take this and turn it into… This? And that this will eventually produce… This? Yes, I’m talking about turning your average, ordinary grocery store pineapple into a tropical showpiece within your home. A plant that is not only impressive but will WOW!

Birthday Cupcake Jelly Shot, anyone? Make a wish!!! Oh, wait . . . no candles. Sorry! They melt the jelly shots.
Do you dress up for Halloween? I have never been big into the holiday, but with the kids dressing up now it is so much more fun. The twins are going as Ragedy Anne and Andy this year! If you are looking for just a little something to wear, masks are an easy way to subtly dress it up.
So now you've seen my interpretation of a Raven themed dinner party , I wanted to show you how I made the dinnerware. If you are like me you probably oogle over the holiday themed dishes but quickly shy away since you don't want to shell out for a whole set just for one celebration. (I don't even have real china so I think its safe to say I won't be buying any themed kind either) So when this idea of making my own for next to nothing came to mind, I just had to try it.
After our living room tour many of you asked for tips on making your very own Instagram wall! This method is perfect for instagram (or any square) photos and polaroids. Mine is not permanent because we are planning to put our home on the market in the near future. The method I used is perfect for renters or anyone uncomfortable with making lots of holes in the wall. Another method would be to mount your photos onto a large board or frame that can move to your next space with you.

Do you have any coffee lovers on your holiday gift list this year? (If not, feel free to go ahead and put me on your list!) This is a cute little idea for making your own flavored coffee syrups that you can use at home to take your morning cup of joe to the next level.
Thank you so much for the kind & encouraging comments on yesterday’s office reveal. It was a fun room to put my personality into and to try some new things and I think it turned out better than I had hoped. And did you like the fancy photos? Those were taken by my husband who very kindly dealt with my over-controlling nature when it comes to these types of projects. Thanks dear.
