I found it!!

Remember my Rhododendron Chandelier post??  WELL, I was on Pinterest (really, what did I do with my time before finding this site?) and found a tutorial on how to make one that looks so similar to the real thing!

Real Thing:

Saucy Glossie's

Here is a link to her page to find out the instructions!


Lace decoupage

Modge Podge is going to become my favorite new craft item! The first time I ever used it was for my tile project below, and since have been searching for different ways to use it. This is my favorite by far!

Aren't these beautiful! I really am a sucker for anything lace.  I'd really like to make a whole drinking glass set out of these, but don't think that's very safe. Maybe I'll just settle for a few vases!

I'm moving tomorrow and have already started a few projects for my room.
Cant wait to share them with you!


Tile Coasters

I was on Pinterest and found a link on how to make these cute coasters:

I really NEVER use coasters, but was feeling a little crafty and wanted to do something easy...And these were easy!

All you need:

tiles (these are slightly bigger than 4x4)
Scrap book paper in 4"x4" sheets
modge podge
a sealing spray
felt circles for the bottom of the tile.

How to:

Cover the tiles with the modge podge and place paper in center. Smooth out the paper then add more modge podge over the paper, covering the tile.  Once dry, spray the tile with a sealant and add felt circles to the bottom of the tile.


Anthropologie Rhododendron Chandelier

How hard do you think it would be to make this chandelier?  It's absolutely beautiful, but at $900 its out of my price range!  I was thinking crinkled coffee filters with some sort of pin in the center? I've been searching online, but no one has posted any ideas yet...any suggestions?


Reason #32 why we should drink wine!

Sorry for my lack of posting!  I am on vacation and in the process of moving, so my life is all over the place and haven't had any time for crafts! I'll get back to it soon!

I thought this was a really cute idea and a great way to use all those left over corks.


Anthropologie Cirrus Duvet Cover


The cirrus Duvet cover from Anthropologie is stunning. On sale, its a steal! BUT, if you want to try to make your own, there is a tutorial here.


Amazonite and Carnelian

There isn't a specific necklace that inspired this piece, but maybe a few. I've seen so many necklaces in stores that have been combining various colors, shapes and sizes of beads, but had nothing similar in my jewelry box.

I knew I wanted to make something with some a few different, larger stones.  I love Amazonite and a warm carnelian together and just added in touches of pink. 

My favorite thing about this necklace is the amazonite teardrop cluster. I use clusters quite often, but usually in repeated patterns. I love the way it looks on its own!

I have some crochet projects to hopefully do this weekend but also some packing, so we'll see which comes first!  

Enjoy your weekend!




I'm going for very simple and inexpensive for my next bedroom.  This set of canvas would retail for over $100, but is very simple to make. Canvas, paint and a little creativity is all you need.



Vases that hang from the wall is a great idea when living in small apartments where table space is limited. I absolutely love flowers and hate empty walls....so here we have a few wall hanging vases.

A little too obsessed

So I've made one to many wrap bracelets...but I keep on going. This one is sleeping beauty turquoise with labradorite rondelles and peridot gemstones.

I love that it's bright and I surprising don't have any turquoise bracelets,  but I am not sure how much I love the peridot mixed in. Thoughts and opinions?
