Fall Favorites

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

It’s happened and I’m ready. I watched the first few leaves fall from the sycamore in front of my house in the cool morning mist, and I couldn’t stop thinking about pumpkin spice lattes and cable knit sweaters and I’m finally ready to welcome fall.

I rounded up a group of furnishings and accessories new for fall from favorite retailers and online shops – it’s a collection of all things warm and wonderful this autumn. fall home decor picks

DIY Gifts for Mother’s Day

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

I miss my mom a lot, she lives on the outskirts of Las Vegas and I don’t get to see my parents as often as I’d like. I like to create something special for Mother’s Day, even if it’s just a semi DIY craft or project. (Last year I made these photo filled memory jars). I went looking for inspiration and rounded up a bunch of great ideas. Enjoy!

Make homemade linen spray, with printable lavender, garden rose, and jasmine labels.
