Summer time for my family means squeezing in some beach time.  It's no surprise that we seem to always come home with a bucket full of sand and found shells from our beach adventures.  Instead of tossing it away, cherish the memory and bottle it up!  I started a shell bottle collection just recently when we got back from our trip to Seaside,...

When we moved into our new home 3 years ago, I was on a quest to make our master bedroom into a sanctuary to escape and relax from the craziness of the day-to-day life. However, my budget was TIGHT so I knew I was going to have to get creative in order to achieve the look I was going for. And for the past 3 years my bedroom looked decent and I...

Let me start off by saying I am a hippie at heart. I remember in middle school the only reason why I wanted to take art class was because the teacher at South Junior High was known for doing fabulous macrame and I just had to learn.  I wish I would have saved everything I made back in the day but alas I never thought I would use it again...

Living in a very small rental home, I wasn't thrilled about the space I would be working with for my new baby boy's nursery.  All of my Pinterest nurseries were definitely bigger,... with glass french doors, massive windows, and approximately 2-3 hanging chandeliers.  Oh, you pinned that nursery too?! ;)  Well, my 10'x10' box was what I was...

I love big statements in decoration and design, and DIY marquee letters give you a lot of punch for little money. There are two ways to make a marquee; buy an oversized paper mache letter at your local craft store or cut a letter out of wood. There are pros and cons to both materials, although the method is the same for both. Paper...

A few weeks ago I went to a friend's house and got a tour of her lovely backyard. Nestled in the gorgeous flowerbed was a tiny house with a stone path and a small arbor, a few little toadstools and a teeny tiny bouquet of flowers. I asked my friend and she told me it was her granddaughter's fairy garden, a fun little something they do together. I...

Marble is such a desired and popular stone right now, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.  Clean, white and whirling patterns with shade variations, it is a unique and beautiful stone.  Marble also has a reputation as being expensive.  So, I'm going to show you how to bring a touch of marble to a console table, dresser, or bathroom counter...

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.  ~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe It's true, isn't it? Spring time has a magical way of getting to the "get up and go" in each of us. Talk of spring cleaning, organizing, starting new goals, revisiting old goals, and just DOING seems to pop up as often as the tulips do. The...
