Have you heard the birds chirping lately? Spring is right around the corner… I can feel it! Today I am excited to let you know that I will be guest posting over at one of my favorite blogs, House by Hoff! I’ll be sharing the DIY Shabby Chic Birds I made for spring.

I have to admit I never thought I would enjoy going to antique stores or garage sales. Looking through other people’s junk while growing up had no appeal to me whatsoever. Then I became an adult, and started paying my own bills. Like magic, all of the sudden other people’s junk (at much cheaper prices) became very appealing! And to think that I could add some new paint, or fabric to a piece making it my own…why didn’t I realize this before!? This took my love of crafting and shopping to a whole new level.
My bedroom is one of my favorite rooms, and that is because some of my best antique store/garage sale finds are located there. It brings a smile to my face remembering how excited I was when I found these pieces, and then gushing over how perfect they were with my mom, over and over again. Ah, memories!
I wish I had before and after pictures of these fabulous finds to show you. At the time, I didn’t know they would be very important to have for my future blog. Regardless, they are still fun to share.
Recently, I decided it was time to revamp our napkin ring holders. We purchased our original ones from Pier 1, and they were made from peacock feathers. I wanted to keep the same theme this time around.
Did you know that today is national Floral Design Day!? Me either, but what a fun “holiday” to celebrate! I thought this would be a good opportunity to get into the spring spirit.
My mom loves putting together floral arrangements, so I figured this would be a nice and easy project we could do together. We went to Michael’s and picked up a cute vase and some flower stems that screamed spring. Then we trimmed the stems and put the flowers in the vase. It ended up being a smaller project than what I initially envisioned, but sometimes those can be the best ones. Now, I have a beautiful floral arrangement to help me visualize springtime!
Photo booths are all the rage these days. They are at wedding receptions, birthday parties and corporate events. They help capture special moments that guests will always remember. What do you do when you want to capture these moments but don’t have a photo booth?? (more…)
I have a blank wall in my bedroom facing my bed. My room isn’t huge, so I wanted to add something to the wall that wouldn’t make it look smaller. I came up with this photo collage. I bought the frames on sale at Marshall’s and spray painted them white. (more…)
