How To Redecorate For Free In The Middle Of The Night

June 30, 2015


 I redecorated my kitchen for free in less than ten minutes at 1am.


I was up late, sewing. I do a lot of my best work under the cover of darkness, when no one else is awake, asking for food or a ride. Anyway, I moved my farmhouse island to make more room on the floor to work and when it came time to put it back, I didn't. It looked so good in its new position I left it.

Italian Prosperity Jar

I am a romantic, a dreamer and a true lover of fairy tales. Implausible happy endings are the best part of any story and if there's a little mystery and magic thrown in, even better. In real life however, I am a bit more pragmatic. I don't usually play the lottery, believe in get rich quick schemes and if something seems too good to be true, I generally pass. However, when my friend Deb mentioned her Italian Prosperity Jar, I found myself mildly intrigued.

Super Easy No Sew Valance

June 23, 2015



Ok, brace yourselves, I have another banner project today. I know, I know, I just can't get enough of these things, but this one is different. I promise! It doesn't involve my kitchen or the hood. It's a no sew valance and I made it for my bedroom, because the colors were right and I am cheap.

Summer Sticker Sign Wreath and A Dose Of DIY Blog Hop

June 15, 2015





Summer is almost here and I can't wait ~ I'm so excited! To welcome the season, I wanted to dress my front door in something whimsical, light, airy and full of the glorious color I dreamt about during those cold, grey days of winter. Last year, I added letters to a wreath and while I love the idea of decorating with words, this year, I was craving a simpler, more rustic look to greet my guests. I decided on this sticker sign wreath and I couldn't be happier with the result. It was super easy to whip up, it seriously took me ten minutes, and it's a foolproof way to get perfect lettering regardless of your penmanship skills. 

I promise.
