Loving this embellished vase from Centsational Girl, I think semi-handmade is such a smart way to customize and personalize something without feeling like you have to create something from scratch.

Simple Spring via Miss Mustard Seed, I don’t consider myself a seasonal decorator either, I don’t have a bin of spring decor or Fourth of July decorations (although if you do I think that’s fantastic) BUT, I do hope that my home always reflects the current season–Mustard Seed gives some great ideas and beautiful photos.

I saw this instagram photo over at Absolutely Beautiful Things and just thought it was incredibly inspiring.  It looks like little poms made of ragamuffin garland on cushions.  Lovely.

I saw these cookies over at Bless Our Nest, aren’t they just gorgeous?  They were created by a fellow blogger The Doughmestic Housewife.  I was happy to read that she ships anywhere in the US, packing this idea away for my next girl’s weekend or boy’s birthday party.  Wouldn’t little terrarium cookies be nice? Or owls? Or silhouettes?


I happened to catch the premier of the new show on HGTV Living Abroad.  They say “it picks up where House Hunters International leaves off” and I found it fascinating.  HHI is my favorite show on HGTV so it’s no surprise that I like Living Abroad–currently it airs Fridays at 9pm EST at least it did this week, did you happen to see it?  I fell asleep during the Dubai episode and I’m kicking myself for not recording it.  And yes, I fell asleep on a Friday night before 10pm.  I’ve been old all of my life.
