Fall Mantle Inspiration

Painted Pumpkins with Magnolia Market basket and cotton stems
An easy fall decor with things you probably already have around the house. We painted over some orange, wood pumpkins with Annie Sloan chalk paint, added some height with a candlestick and the final touches are the cotton stems and basket with birch logs from Magnolia Market.
Happy fall!

Party In Pink

Pink And Gold Party Table
I love this party table display! We recently celebrated my great-grandaughter's first birthday! My granddaughter displayed these beautiful treats at the princess birthday party.
The treats were delicious and included cotton candy flavored cake pops sprinkled with edible gold glitter, blondies, Madeline's drizzled with white chocolate, vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and colorful straws cut and placed in the cupcakes for added decoration. She added an adorable fabric streamer for the Birthday Princess Chair! Add to your memory making days with pretty party decor!
Love and peace,

The Princess Birthday Chair

Kitchen Tips - Organize Your Spices

Love My New Spice Drawer
On our recent vacation to my sister's home, I discovered her awesome spice drawer! I loved seeing all of the spices at once instead of digging through different container sizes in my kitchen cabinet. My first project after vacation was to purchase small canning jars that would fit into my drawer. I used chalkboard vinyl paper and wrote each spice name with a chalkboard marker. I had a few jars left so I stored the spices I use less frequently in my cabinet. She also stores her measuring spoons in the spice drawer...I copied that idea too! 😀
Happy organizing!
Love and peace,

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint- My Old Hope Chest

Annie Sloan's French Linen

For a quick new look with an old piece of furniture, try a chalk painting project!

  • I used Annie Sloan's French Linen chalk paint. I applied two coats of paint letting them dry in between coats. 
  • Within a couple of hours the paint was dry then I applied one thin coat of Annie Sloan white wax using the Annie Sloan wax brush. 
  • An hour later, I used an old tshirt to buff it out until it was smooth.
  • I love seeing the detail in the wood with the awesome new color!

Love and peace,
