    It’s almost the middle of September, and I am going fall crazy over here! Today I spent the day chalk painting pumpkins and in between drying times I have been decorating for the Harvest Home Blog Hop which begins next Tuesday! This coming Saturday I am going junkin’ at the Country Living Fair, which means I won’t be able to do any crafting or decorating that day, so I am really rushing to get things ready now! I wanted to use the burlap pumpkins in some vignettes for the tour, so I hustled and finished some today and I am so glad I did. Now I am excited to show you how you can make some DIY shabby vintage burlap pumpkins too! They turned out so pretty and even though I have tons of other things to do, I am heading back to Dollar Tree tomorrow to buy a few more. Just take a look at these beauties! I need a whole bucket full!

    Summer is here and that means lots of DIY and craft projects around the yellow brick home! Today I will be sharing an easy mason jar makeover using chalk paint, which wasn’t even on “the list” of things to do, but it was so quick and fun and at least I got something accomplished! Gardens are in full bloom and it’s time to fill those quaint, old mason jars with beautiful blossoms. I recently found this large Atlas jar at a rummage sale for only $1.00, but no matter how much I scrubbed it would not come clean. Since I really wanted to use the jar for displaying some fresh hydrangeas from my yard, I decided to just paint right over the cloudy glass.

    Spring Wreath Tutorial: Bonnie Blue Roses and Thistle

    Hello everyone! Today I am happy to be sharing a little spring wreath tutorial for my latest wreath design, “Bonnie Blue Roses and Thistle.”  In my post,  Floral Arranging: Finding Inspiration In The Little ThingsI discuss how I often use small treasures or one particular flower type to inspire a floral arrangement or wreath design.  A little bird and some bonnie (pretty) Scottish thistle and blue roses were the inspiration for this natural looking, Celtic-themed spring wreath.
