April 15th, 2014 Daniel and I just got back from Washington, DC. We drove up for our friends’ wedding celebration, but stayed to explore a little since neither of us had been since high school. The famous cherry blossoms happened to be in full bloom, so I wanted to walk down to the waterfront “real quick” to see them in all their glory. April 10th, 2014 For the next 3 weeks I’m going to do this 15 Day Drawing Challenge I wrote up. THE CHALLENGE! 1. a pattern 2. an animal 3. your favorite thing to wear 4. something you found on the ground outside 5. recipe instructions 6. a word 7. an insect 8. a cross section 9. an animal doing something only humans can do 10. something in a jar 11. a diagram 12. something you’re afraid of 13. a plant 14. your favorite food 15. something microscopic April 8th, 2014 I love chai, but it’s so warm and spicy that I can’t bear to drink it in the spring and summer. By the way, these glass straws are the best. This serving board is also the best. April 3rd, 2014 Related:  Inspiration déco

diy A few of my lovely readers asked me how I made my photo collages on white background, and I thought it may be interesting to post about that. I'm doing it the dummy way, with a free online photo editor called Pixlr. There are a lot better options to make photo collages than the way I do it, and if you're familiar with Adobe Photoshop or similar softwares, you know my way is really not the best one. So if, after this warning, you still want to do it my way, I'll show you how I made the collage below! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Once again, this tutorial is just my way of making a collage, and although it is a super easy way, it's by far not the best way!

Pinkrain La récup' dans la déco, le détournement d'objets /  WoDesign Avec un peu d’imagination et quelques vieilles planches qui ont vécu il est possible de créer de belles ambiances. Pour preuve les photos qui vont suivre, elles démontrent parfaitement que la décoration est une affaire d’accords, de tonalités, un peu comme une partition de musique en fait, peu importe finalement les matériaux utilisés, le tout est d’avoir l’art et la manière de les accorder pour donner tout son sens à une pièce. L’imagination est aussi une des clefs d’une décoration réussie, car il faut bien le dire, il en faut une bonne dose pour voir dans quelques vieilles planches désuètes, quelques morceaux de bois ou dans des palettes, la possibilité de les transformer en quelques choses d’utiles ou de décoratifs. Le détournement d’objets est aussi dans l’air du temps, comme le témoignent les bureaux jumeaux : une simple table séparée par une bibliothèque, astucieux et pratique.

Honestly WTF A Beautiful Mess I love using cloth napkins to dress up our dinner table, and through the years I've grown even more fond of their sustainability and cost effectiveness. Though, I'm not sure how cost effective it is if you keep buying more and more cloth napkins each year! This holiday season I thought it would be fun to look at how I could dress up the napkins I already own to give them an extra festive vibe. Check out three simple ways you can give new life to your table linens. And hey! Ribbon Trimmed Napkin This look is so (no sew) simple! Supplies:-ribbon-heat bond in width of ribbon-cloth napkin (buy mine here)-iron-fabric scissors (not shown above) Step One: Trim pieces of your ribbon to be about 1.5 inches longer than the width of your napkins. Step Two: Fold down the edges of each ribbon segment about 1/4" and iron flat. Step Three: Iron the heat bond to the ribbon (pressing with hot iron for two seconds), then peel off the paper backing. Pom-Pom Trimmed Napkin That's all there is to it!

Chevron Pattern Recycled Wood Planter Box » The 91204 Blog After we built the planter box in the previous post for Stephanie, Dez was jealous and she wanted something cool like that for her own garden. So this is what she got and it’s by far one of our favorite DIY projects that we’ve done. It was actually kinda tedious, but totally worth it. After constructing the main box frame from cedar and redwood, the wood for the chevron patterns was mostly leftover pallet stock from various projects. We also used some wood from an old bed frame a neighbor gave us and since we’re revamping our bridal show booth, we didn’t need the white trim molding from that anymore, so we cut it up and used it too. Since this box is going to be the new temporary home for Dez’s avocado tree we wanted to put wheels on it so we could easily roll it around the backyard pavement. Now that you’ve seen this, be sure to check out more updates on our personal blog, and on our Zelo Photography blog…and spread the word!
