Now that the grass is green, the buds are showing, and the temps are climbing, I’m turning my attention from indoors to out! And this year, our front porch could use a little bit-o-lovin’. So I put together this Front Porch Mood Board to help me get inspired and focused.
Hello there! I hope all of you had lovely weekends, and lovely weather to enjoy them in. We had a nice Easter weekend, and the best weather yet… sun, blue skies, light breezes and 75-degree days. Otherwise known as perfection. I could totally live with this type of weather year-round.
We’re hosting Easter for the first time this year. Which means: cleaning, decorating, menu-planning, and tablescape-creating. So far, I have one of those items checked off my list. Oh wait! One-and-a-half. I have my menu sort-of planned out. But, at least I have a lovely, simple Easter tablescape to share with you today!
And if you’re a last-minute planner (yes, that’s a thing) like me, you can probably pull off a similar setting with plenty of time leftover to get those hardboiled eggs dyed.
Today I’m super-excited to participating in another Silhouette Challenge! So after you’ve checked out my spring-inspired project, please go check out all the other incredible projects that my bloggy buddies have created to get you excited and inspired for this fresh new season!
One of my favorite things about Spring is planting my garden. It’s like Spring’s version of Christmas Day… heading to the nursery, picking out all kinds of colorful blooms and filling up every pot and bed in our yard. Since it’s still just a bit early here in Ohio, and the temperatures still a tad unpredictable, to plant our garden, I created a sunny paper bouquet to tide me over until I can head out to my favorite nursery!
Now that signs of Spring are actually starting to show (!!!), it was time to dust off my faux hydrangea-and-dahlia wreath for our front door. Only problem was, it felt like it needed something extra. Enter a super easy diy banner, inspired by my friend Lauren.
Well, folks, my weekend kind of got away from me. And the diy that I had planned to do got started, but not finished. So, I figured there’s no better time than the present to bring you another Life Letters segment. And this one is on balance.
How appropriate, right?
Guys! I think Spring might actually be coming!! I’ve seen bunches of daffodils cropping up! And just yesterday morning, I spotted buds on a honeysuckle in our backyard!
So, in honor of the signs of the season, I’ve rounded up a Wish List of lovelies that are sure to brighten up your kitchen, bookshelf, and even your wardrobe. Enjoy!
I miiight have a bit of an obsession with home decor. I seriously think I could shop for home decor all the live-long day, whether walking down aisles stocked with candle holders, vases and random objets, to browsing sites full of pillows, throws and art. I’m not sure why I love it so much… maybe because each piece conjures up endless possibilities for styling and arranging. How this piece would change the look of a traditional versus contemporary room. Or mixing glam with vintage. Or French accessories with Moroccan textiles. Maybe I missed a calling to become an interior designer??
Anyway, this post isn’t meant for you to listen to me ramble, it’s to show you where I love to shop! Or, where I find myself most frequently. I’ve noticed that I have a very distinct list of where I buy versus where I browse when it comes to home decor.
Happy Thursday friends! I’m sharing one of my absolute favorite jewelry artists with you today, AND! There’s a giveaway at the end of this post! Hooray!
How much can I gush about an artist before I seem like some sort of creeper? Because I LOVE Natasha J Collection jewelry. So. Much.
I first fell in love with her handcrafted ceramic jewelry at one of last year’s Crafty Supermarket events. I resisted the urge to buy up her whole table and instead carefully selected one of her lovely half-moon necklaces in a light tealy blue color. (This exact same half-moon necklace showed up months later in my Umba Box. Great minds buy handmade alike, am I right?).
