A night of flowers, shopping, and peaches

Posted on September 2, 2014

Hey guys, can you go vote for my leather clutch? Just kidding- I know you are tired of hearing me repeat and beg and bribe to get you guys over to vote on a site that worked maybe 25% of the voting period. Thank you all for trying and voting- I could feel the love even if I don’t end up winning this round. But guess what-some lucky ducky did win this round- well, actually some lucky ducky won the leather clutch! And that winner is: a Rafflecopter giveaway Lindsey J- congratulations! I hope you love the clutch. It’s kind of like my fourth child now, so take good care of it, m’kay?   Moving on to things that don’t involve leather, we hosted another floral workshop with the wonderful ladies at Lace & Lilies a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to share some pictures with you from …

Posted on September 1, 2014

Confession- I didn’t even realize today was Monday and that I was supposed to have a post published for y’all until 11:30 this morning! We are going to take the day off of blogging (which is labor to us) and we’ll be back tomorrow with a recap of our latest floral workshop with the ladies of Lace & Lilies! In the meantime, make sure you get yourself entered in the clutch giveaway which ends at 11:59 tonight. And please, please, please give me one more vote over at the Cricut Design Space Star Challenge! Voting ends tonight and I know there have been a lot of hiccups with the site but right now the site appears to be working in Safari but not in Google Chrome. I really appreciate all of you helping us out through this process! Happy Labor Day and come back tomorrow to find out who won …

A Year of Change {August – book shelf styling}

Posted on August 29, 2014

**Don’t forget about the giveaway we are currently running for the leather clutch Erin made for the Cricut Design Space Star Challenge. You can read more about the clutch here and then hop on over to this site and vote for her project. We need all your votes to help us win this round!!!** It’s that time of the month again – for the Year of Change Challenge reveal! This round we challenged ourselves to styling up some book shelves. This project actually scared the crap out of me. I am not a styler of bookshelves. Something about shelves always seems so difficult and just plain off when I try to do it. But, hey, I’m always up for a challenge! This month we’re playing with our usual crew: Rosa Beltran Designs, Life on Virginia Street and Commona My House. And as our very special guest we have Jade from Jade O’Connor …

She’s Crafty {Amy Howard Lacquer Paints}

Posted on August 27, 2014

* I received free Amy Howard at Home Lacquer for Furniture in exchange for reviewing their product. All opinions are my own.  About a year ago I picked up this little beauty up on Craig’s List. Everything was perfect – the lines, the hardware, the lacquer, the whole chinoiserie-ness of it. Everything was perfect except the color. Sage is a fine color for sure but not one that was going to work in my home. I planned to change it up but I wanted to keep the lacquer finish. Except everything I’ve read about DIY lacquer sounded like it would take fifty steps and then just maybe it might come out with a decent lacquer finish. It took me the full year I had the piece to psych myself up to start the refinishing project. Then Erin came to the rescue when she found Amy Howard at Home Furniture Lacquer. The …
