Fireworks Vases + Happy Fourth!

Monday, July 4th, 2011

I have a confession to make, I am crazy about Japanese washi tape.  So much potential for cuteness in one little roll, I am smitten!  I was browsing Etsy a month ago and stumbled across Pretty Tape.  It was then that my love affair with this charming crafting tool began.  I ordered a few rolls with plans to use them on birthday or holiday gifts.

With the washi tape and some white ceramics, I also made some fun fireworks vases for the Fourth of July.

Home May’d + Mint Bunny Morsels

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Greetings on this Good Friday friends, we’re gearing up for the Easter weekend festivities, and off to my sister’s house for dinner on Sunday.  My sis lives over an hour away so we don’t get a chance to see each other as often as we should or could. 

There are many things my younger sister and I have in common, but the one thing we share is a love of vintage finds and chocolate mint.   In fact, a perfect afternoon for me would be sitting in her backyard, eating chocolate mints, and pouring over shelter magazines together.  That or going thrifting arm in arm.  

I was wandering the aisles of one of my favorite antique stores a few weeks ago and came across these sweet vintage bunny aluminum tins, so I thought I’d give them to my sis, but I couldn’t help making some chocolate mint Easter bunnies to go along with them !!
