I set up this delicious hot chocolate station in our kitchen and I’m hooked. It’s a sweet treat for everyone filled with easy DIY coca toppers.
My favorite part of blogging is getting to collaborate from afar with all of my creative friends! Today, I’m joining forces with some of my faves to share these fun dolled up peace signs… we’re calling it Peace, Love and DIY and mine has been an exercise in patience! This beauty is NOT my original vision… my original vision took a turn for the worse.
Not to be the barer of alarming news, but… Thanksgiving is next week. NEXT WEEK! Where did THAT come from?! And yes… I’m pretty sure I’ve started a post like this EXACTLY the same way last year and maybe even the year before. I’ve been hustling to finish my shed (thanks so so SO much for ALL your sweet and wonderful comments… I’m still pinching myself a bit that it’s right outside my door), and I ‘m hoping to photograph a few more updates I made to the kids’ bathroom tomorrow. But today, I’m sharing one of my favorite, easiest projects to jazz up a table.
You didn’t realize what day it was, did you?! It’s not quite as exciting as the after Christmas sale at Anthropologie or free cone day at Ben and Jerry’s, but it’s a dang fine day regardless: Swap It Like Its HOT!!!! A few years ago, I started this little thing with some blogging pals and we each mailed each other thrift store goodies to make over and post about. Today marks the SIXTH time for this rodeo and I cannot WAIT to see what everyone has been up to with their thrifted happy mail!
You know how sometimes people say imitation is the best form of flattery? Well… I don’t know if I buy that, but consider this post flattery to the MAX! I saw this image somewhere sometime and it instantly burned into my brain. It’s from the incredibly talented Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess. Knowing her, she spend months and months and months curating and collecting. I started looking at the flea market one weekend and immediately felt discouraged and impatient. So… I reached out to my friends at DecoArt, they sent me some of their glass stain and I made my own!
