Faux Fur Pillows- Winter Masterbed Refresh

Happy New Year! Have we all recouped from bringing in the New Year?  Well I can finally say I have recouped!  I danced, we danced, literally all night like teenagers and I dearly paid for it.  God knows I haven’t moved these bones like that in years. So the question is…why didn’t I think of the repercussions of such fun-filled-foolishness. OMG, I was aching from … Continue reading Faux Fur Pillows- Winter Masterbed Refresh

I saw this fun pom-pom trim at Hobby Lobby, and thought how cute it would be to accent a bohemian pillow I made a while back. I was not quite sure how I was going … Continue reading A Boho Pillow refreshed and made funky

Spring Outdoors -My Happy Place – pillows-cushions-tablescape

Are you making any changes to your outdoor living space for Spring?  I’m refreshing our patio for Spring using  simple changes with pillows and cushions. Love that word “refresh” pertaining to updating your decorating. This year I wanted a Tropical Safari feel. I was inspired after viewing this video of the  Singita Pamushana Lodge  in Zimbabwe. The color palette of Black and White, Teal, Blue, Green, Yellow I thought was beautiful and bold.  See more of the Villa here .  … Continue reading Spring Outdoors -My Happy Place – pillows-cushions-tablescape

Have bag will travel -DIY car travel craft bag

Road trips are often around here anywhere from 1 to 8 hours.  Which means I carry a lot of “stuff” to keep myself busy while hubby is driving.  Books, crossword puzzles, beads and tools, hand sewing project kits, latch hook kits…you name it.  Anyhey,  it drives me crazy when I can’t find what I need because I have things thrown in more than one tote.  Every trip I would change to … Continue reading Have bag will travel -DIY car travel craft bag
