I absolutely love the gorgeous fabrics and fun look this patchwork shower curtain brings to the room.

Using a machine stitch to make diy vintage tea towels seems an easy way to create beautiful and unique gifts.

You know I love a great vase, and this glitter dipped vase would sure add a bit of sparkle to our table.

This diy mdf-mounted photo only looks expensive – what a great way to show off a beautiful photo!

Here’s a fantastic way to use the ever-growing pile of fabric scraps! I can just see these mini fabric lamps decorating a girl’s room or a colorful porch.

Speaking of porches, I loved how this post about creating the ultimate backyard breaks the planning down to four areas and helps make landscape planning not so overwhelming.

I think the kids and I need to make a chalkboard summer bucket list like this one to plan some fun things for the summer!

Making some diy watercolor art with the kids looks like it would be so fun (and easy!) that it should be one of the top things on our summer list.

Dont’ these whole wheat and flax pancakes look delicious? I’m glad they’re healthy, too!

Got ant problems? This all-natural ant killer may be the solution.

I really like to up the nutrition in regular dishes, and this recipe for meatballs with zucchini added seems like a winner.

These strawberry coffee cake muffins are making me drool – what a great way to use seasonal strawberries!
