The Kurtz Corner IHeart Organizing Tutorials « 14 Shades Of Grey I confess, it’s been too cold for outfit photos these past few days, and my outfits weren’t that interesting anyway. I have these pictures left over from the Lunar New Year, so I thought I might as well post them.

Narrating Life DIYInspired My Sweet Savannah I've been wanting to do a home tour for quite some time, but I don't have all the rooms photographed. Not knowing when that will happen, I decided to do it now, and add photos as I take them. So, here is a partial post on our home. More to come! This is the exterior as you drive in. Patricia from PVE design did a wonderful drawing for us. I will be updating this frequently with more photos.

alisaburke The Inspired Room DIY BRACELETS There has been so much chitter chatter on pinterest lately about the stacking bracelet trend (or as some people call it - "an arm party") and I think I am jumping on the bandwagon. The bigger, bolder, chunkier, gold-er :: the better. And, in effort to be financial friendly a lot of people have starting making their own to layer.

Here are some of my favorite pinterest DIY jewelry ideas: Rope & Hex Nut bracelet via truly smitten, or another take on this bracelet could be used with leather or suede (below). This chain & rhinestone bracelet is one of my favorites, but it has been difficult finding the right chain. These friendship bracelets are a total throwback to middle school, but I love the updated look with the metallic thread. via honestly wtf
