Wood Cut Letter Holder / Mail Organizer

I sat there for what must have been 30 minutes straight, staring at the chopped down pile of my previously glorious trees.

So I sat there a little sad, and quite puzzled […] Read more…

DIY Leather Door Wedge

I’ve always used whatever’s been lying on the floor to prop open the doors in our house, anything from piggy banks to hatboxes, book ends to shoes…and occasionally the dog.  Whatever works, right?

I can’t seem to walk into a Home Goods or a Target without walking out with […] Read more…

Piano Lamp Turn Bookcase Lamp

Looking at my living room bookcases, I just kept feeling there was something missing. Then one day I realized what was needed…a bookcase lamp.

DIY Wire Baskets

I have wanted wire baskets forever! Ever since seeing them in a lovely Pottery Barn catalog. But $20-$30 for a single large basket? Uhhh, yeah right, even if my husband said “honey I want to buy you something special” I’d have to say no… are you kidding, do you know how many beautiful things I could […] Read more…

Pretty, practical, mostly free, and it adds some sparkle? Why yes please!   Start by collecting a variety of […] Read more…

The Wannabe Artist

Being the daughter of an artist can be…well, inspiring, sometimes frustrating. Occasionally you watch him paint and it makes you think “hey, I can do that!”…but you can’t. Nope, you never can. It has given me a healthy appreciation for having art on my walls however. Now, I’m desperate to find the perfect stunning piece […] Read more…
