    Transform Plain Glass Vases into Gorgeous Sea Glass

      Using only a couple of items you most likely have around you home you can give plain clear glass the lovely look of seaglass. I started with simple glass bud vases which I purchased for $1.00 each at the Target dollar spot.  While I purchased mine at Target, similar bud vases can be found here. Before I began, I cleaned each of the vases with rubbing alcohol to make sure I  started with a clean surface. All you need to transform plain glass into lovely seaglass is food coloring and glue.  I used Wilton Color Right icing colors.  Their color chart can help you achieve any color desired, however any…

    Gift Idea for Men

    Post sponsored by Jord.  As always, all opinions are my own. As this time of year rolls around, I am always left wondering what I can buy for my husband for our anniversary.  Many of us also face this same question as we approach our anniversary, Valentine’s Day, birthday’s, Christmas, whatever the gift-giving occasion might be.   Thanks to the kind people at Jord Wood Watches, I was able to give my husband a handsome , top-quality wooden watch for our anniversary this year.  He loves watches, and has quite a collection, however he has nothing compared to the wooden Jord watch. They have many great styles available and the…

    Bringing it all together

    This year is all about organization.  We see and hear it everywhere.  From the new organizational items on the market to the new TV shows about organization; organization is definately on everyone’s mind this year.  I was able to utilize our rather long family entrance hallway (you know, the one to the garage since we never actually use our front door) to organize several, often chaotic, tasks into one area. Areas such as this have many names.  Some people call them “command centers”, some call them “family planning centers”, and some call them “drop zones’.  I have also seen them referred to by many other names but whatever you call…

    Transitioning my Front Porch Decor From Christmas to Winter

    Christmas has come and gone and we are beginning a new year, so what better way to start it off with some fresh new decor.  I decided to keep the Christmas magic alive as long as possible by transforming my Holly Jolly front porch into a white winter wonderland.  After all, with the dreary days of winter still looming, who couldn’t use a little more magic, and what’s more magical than snow?

    How to Create a Winter Themed Hot Chocolate Bar

    Now that Christmas has come and gone we are often left with the question of how to decorate until spring.  It’s not quite time to break out the Easter decor, and it’s still really cold in most of the country, so I decided this year to decorate some areas of my home with a snowy winter white. Today we will look at how I changed out the wine cart to a winter white hot cocoa bar.  Since the budget is not unlimited, I tried to reuse items where I could.  Obviously you will want to remove anything with Santa or Christmas trees but I really think the key to reusing…

    Add Some Festive Fun to your Chandler

    When decorating for the holidays, it’s all about the lights.  We all have lights on our trees, lights in our windows, lights in our yards.  What what about the lights in our home.  I like to add something extra special to those as well.  It’s easier than it sounds! To achieve this gorgeous look was so simple.  All you need is some ribbon, some beautiful ornaments, and a floral ball. I used white curling ribbon to attach the decorations.  For the centerpiece I used a floral ball I purchased at Michaels. I used this set of white and silver ornaments from Michaels, but a similar set can be found here.…
