Hello lovely people! I hope you had a fun, sun-filled weekend! My youngest was sick so ours was very low key.

Pottery Barn Inspired Shell Wreath

How to make a Pottery Barn inspired shell wreath.

Hi Friends! Is there anyone out there that doesn't love high-end décor? I love thumbing through all those decorator magazines. I'm sure most of us do, but you know what I love even more?

Find something in one of those magazines that inspires you and create your own version. A bunch of my friends and I did just that. As part of … [Read more...]

Spindle Wind Chimes

Wind-Chimes-Before-and-After

Hi my beautiful friends! Today I'm sharing what I did with a bunch of spindles I found at an estate sale for $2 a couple of months ago.  The lady asked me what I was going to do with them, and I honestly had no idea at the time.

Cabinet Door Recycle

Cabinet Door to Jewelry Organizer

Hi friends! I have a quick makeover to share with you today. A few months ago our fridge went kaput. It was time for a new one anyway, but when we went searching we quickly learned that there was not a fridge available in the height we needed that would fit under our cabinets. We came to the realization that we were going to have to purchase a shorter cabinet to accommodate our new fridge. That left me with two perfectly good cabinet doors! Here's our old fridge and you can see the cabinets … [Read more...]
