DIY Etched Glass Tutorial to make a darling liquid soap dispenser!

Ya know, there are pins that I have seen floating around Pinterest since Pinterest started.  I call them "classic" pins.  They have withstood the test of time (in the short time that Pinterest has been around) and continue to resurrect themselves into my feed. Today is about one of those "classic" pins - an Etched Glass Soap Dispenser.  I will be very surprised if you haven't already seen it.  Like I said, I think it's a classic.

Take a look at these DIY Anthropologie Bowls! Do you all remember the TV show, the A-Team?  My hubby and I used to watch it all the time and still to this day we will tease each other about one line that Hannibal used to always say which was "I love it when a plan comes together!" For example, maybe I will be working on something whether it be a recipe, a craft, a lesson, a presentation, whatever, and something will happen that I didn't plan that made whatever I was working on even ...

20's Inspired Headband Tutorial - Every little girls will love making and wearing these!.jpg

Taming my daughter's and my naturally curly hair can be a challenge. I have been asked all kinds of questions about my hair from is your hair naturally that curly, what kind of product do you use, to do you have any tips for my daughter. But the most funny question I have ever been asked was from a friend who has very straight hair and told me she wanted to ask me a personal question and wasn’t sure she should. Hmmm. I have to admit I was a little bit nervous.  Especially since she confided her ... Read more

February is National Bird Feeding Month.  Make these easy DIY Hanging Bird Seed Feeders!

I learned something new recently. I was surfing through Pinterest to find some fun things to do with my grandson when I came across this pin from Inner Child Learning.

Valentine Candy Dish

These make darling, quick gifts!

My childhood was very far from any kind of "country" environment.  I grew up in the city which was near a beach and most of my days were spent planning on when my friends and I would get to go lay out in the sun.  Growing up we never had a garden, never raised chickens or had any other kind of "farmy" experience, except when I would get to visit my cousins in Utah and Idaho and then we got to play Pom Pom Pullaway in the root cellar.  Man, my sister and I thought that was the coolest thing ...

Felt Heart Garland - Easy to do and stinkin' cute!.

Valentine's Cards used to be homemade. I know this because my Granny Ola told me how she used to spend hours preparing her cards for her special friends. Does calling her Granny Ola call up images of a tree hugging, granola loving, moccasin wearing, free spirited woman? Good, then you have the right image in your head. During her youth in a small farming town, there were no boxes or bags for each child. You made your cards for your best friends, or the boys you were interested in. Only the girls ... Read more

Coastal Christmas Ornament Tutorial

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? I am not. For so many people Christmas just doesn't feel like Christmas without snow. Growing up in southern California, we three sisters never had a white Christmas. I can even remember trying out my new roller skates from Santa right away, because the weather was good enough. So now that I live in an area that does get occasional snow, I like a reminder of warmer weather and childhood memories. When I saw this pin for a Coastal Christmas Ornament from Mom ... Read more

I have a confession. I LOVE Halloween! I love the decorations, the colors and the costumes etc. I go all out and every year put on a Halloween dinner for my family complete with the grossest food that I can find.  This year I strayed a little from the gross food and we had a Harry Potter Murder Mystery Dinner.  Soooo fun! However the truth is, as soon as Halloween is over, I start listening to Christmas ... Read more
