Dollar Store Peony Heart Wreath for Valentine's Day through Spring


Hi there, Friends! I always enjoy adding a few seasonal accents and it's especially nice to craft something new that can be used for more than one season. This romantic peony heart wreath can be created for Valentine's Day and hung through spring or even summer. Plus it was crafted with dollar store supplies for under $5!

When Valentine's Day Doesn't Feel Happy...


Hello, Friends! Valentine's Day is just three weeks away and I've seen some wonderful projects for the holiday. I've shared a few crafts myself with more to come soon, but today I'm sharing valentine thoughts of a different nature. On Friday, Jemma from At Home with Jemma, will be sharing a valentine gift guide featuring bloggers and Etsy shops and she kindly invited me to participate. As I considered which gift I might feature from Secret Garden Herbs or Thrift Store Addiction, I reflected on a time not so long ago, when Valentine's Day was not a happy occasion for me. I can't help but wonder if someone who is reading may be going through something similar...

How to Stencil a Chalkboard


Hi there, Friends! Recently, when I featured this scripture garden chalkboard with my cozy winter decor, I promised to share a tutorial. As I've mentioned before, despite my love for DIY projects and crafts, I'm pretty challenged when it comes to free hand drawing and lettering.

DIY Farmhouse Conversation Hearts


Hi there, Friends! Though chocolate will always be my first choice for Valentine's Day, there's just something about conversation heart candy that takes me back to school Valentine parties. Do you have similar memories? I decided to recreate the childhood favorite but instead of painting them the traditional pastel shades I used black and white for a touch of farmhouse style. Ready to make your own?
