Floating Hearts Snow Globe

Happy Wednesday Friends! I  think I am in the small minority of bloggers who did not make a waterless snow globe during the Christmas season, although I did receive a lovely one. I thought it would be fun to make one for Valentine's Day, using some floating hearts I created with materials from my stash. Today I'll show you how to make both...

Friday's Find #130


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Don't you love it when you stop by your local thrift store and everything is 50% off?  It was a good week for thrifty finds! I had an appointment on the opposite side of town and had already visited a few shops so I hadn't really planned on stopping at Finds but at the last minute I had a whim.  You can see by the lovelies pictured here, it was a good whim. The gorgeous quilt, sweet heart tart tins and fabulous toile drawer paper--all 50% off!

Friday's Find #129


TGITF Friends! Ready to see the fab features of the week?  Let's kick it off with this gorgeous vintage tea cup.  I know a lot of you share my love for the delicate little lovelies.  In spite of missing its saucer, for .25 it was just too pretty to pass.  Besides, you never know when I mind find one to match. In the meantime, drab winter months are the perfect time to add fresh herbs or flowers to create a charming bouquet.

How I Created a Warm Winter Tablescape in 10 Minutes!

Greetings Friends! Once the Christmas decor is stored for another year, the house always feels a little bare.  Even though our winters are mild, it is still not my favorite season.   The days seem long and gray and I struggle with cedar fever due to the high pollen count this time of year. January can be the worst and staying indoors does seem to help, so creating a warm cheerful space during the winter months is a must!  Today, I'm starting in the dining room...
