Thinking Spring!

I hope you are in the DIY state of mind this weekend, as I have some great projects that will have you ready for spring! The spring weather is not here just yet, so we have more time to spend on indoor projects. I came across a few projects that I think everyone will love. They are a simple way to had touches of spring in your home.

I love this simple canvas art you can hang it up or just have it stand/ lean on its own. If you are not big into decoration for holidays this is the perfect project. It is an easy project and will not take up a lot of space. This would look great on my small fireplace mantle in my living room!

3. Easter Bunny Vases- Click here for step by step instructions

I love this one. What is even better is, these make perfect host gifts! This is so simple and if you want to go with a more spring approach you don’t have to make the bunny. Pick any color or colors you want and you can create your own design for this vase.

4. Umbrella Wreath – Click here for step by step instructions

Another great idea, and this one can be done in a flash! I am currently looking for an umbrella now. This DIY wreath screams spring! I love everything about this,the best part is when you are done using it… you have an umbrella!

I hope everyone enjoys these lovely projects!

Summertime looks for the home!

Memorial Day weekend is here and the unofficial start to the summer season has begun! This weekend will be filled with trips to the beach, concerts, BBQ’s, holiday shopping sales, and plenty of fun in the sun. Being from New Jersey, my summer season means several trips down the parkway to the beautiful Jersey Shore. (No, you will not find me “fist pumping” with DJ Pauly D or anything that MTV has led you to believe.) Each shore town has its own identity and is full of beautiful little independent shops. My favorite thing to do while at the shore is to shop for new coastal-inspired items to take home with me and decorate my bedroom with. I am a lover of all things summer. Anchors. Mermaids. Sea shells. Boats. Tropical flowers. Bright colors. I am a fan of it all!

I have compiled a list of my top coastal finds to help get your home summer-ready! There’s something to fit every budget and every interest! It will feel like summer all year round!
