Costco Flowers

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Isn’t having fresh flowers in the home the absolute best? How can we resist such pretty blooms at such great Costco prices?

Lilies have always been a favorite in our home growing up at Easter. They are a symbol of re-birth, not to mention they smell divine and last forever (no pun intended…hehe).

They should be in the warehouse very soon for $9.99 a bunch!

Do you have a favorite spring flower you are keeping your eyes peeled for?

Metallic Easter Decorations by Emily

Who is excited for Spring? Easter is just a few weeks away so it’s time to get those decorations out!

It seems every year I like things more simple. Easy put up and down is priority!

This year I bought large paper mache eggs from Hobby Lobby (HERE), painted them with my favorite gold paint (HERE) and hung them to our dining light with lace and tulle.

I love copper right now. I put out my Jelly molds and set them on white cake stands for the centerpiece.

How could I pass up this copper bunny Jelly mold for $1 at the thrift store?!

Happy Monday everyone! It may be snowing outside, but inside we are thinking of spring!

SUPPLIES:

We used THESE eggs. So cute and less than $5 for the dozen!

Pearl pins (HERE)

HOW TO:

These eggs are made of foam and are light-weight, which made them perfect to pin onto a rope.

Decorating for holidays in just a few mins with just a few dollars is our absolute favorite, how about you?

Simple Heart Artwork and a Mini Makeover

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

This post was suppose to be a DIY of this heart artwork I whipped up for Valentine’s Day. But I literally drew a heart on a scrap piece of wood and painted it with white craft paint. It took about 5 minutes tops, so there was really no need for a tutorial.

I do think it’s fun. How about you?boxwood clippings_black and white powder room

Anyhow, lately I’ve been really really loving the whole Scandinavian look. They do simplicity and style at it’s best.

So I thought I’d have a little play around in our powder room to see if I could mimic the look.

 Natural elements along with strong metals and lots of white space were key.

It’s still not quite there, but I’m enjoying mulling it over.

Any suggestions?!
