Are you missing Ms Mary MacDonald? She has some words of wisdom she shared with Ok! Magazine on how to transition your home from winter to spring.  I’m sooo rolling up my wool living room rug!


Are you in a DIY mood this weekend? Love the idea of trying the faux zinc finish on a dresser, table ect. ect. It looks great! Unfolded blog has all the details


Incase you have missed it Kate Young, stylists to the stars, debuted  her clothing line for Target last week. It’s sleek and sultry with a girly flair. I picked up this dress in the black version. Think it will be a total staple in my wardrobe this summer!


Let the gifting begin!

Whoa sorry I have been out of the loop the past few weeks! I went on a great trip and had a very wonderful Thanksgiving. Fill you in on that next week. This week nothing but gift ideas! Did any of you brave the malls or small businesses this weekend? I did not partake. I had a mean stomach bug and spent most of the weekend on lock down…which helps you keep up on Pinterest 🙂

Today 5 things you can totally DIY for that special someone. Honestly sit in front of Bravo and DIY. I love the multitask!

Sharpie embellished ramekins. Now I wouldn’t take these back into the kitchen but I think they would make a cute ring dish for the bath or bedroom.

Chic iron on monogrammed napkins (you can find tons of iron ons at Hobby Lobby)

Color up that old gold bracelet. I’d love to get this!

Personally doodled journals. I love this. I could just sit around and doodle on the front of these journals and how nice to get something so personal. Love!

A little higher on the difficulty scale but love these braided scarves made from t-shirts

For all you creative Mama’s out there, I love this idea!! I don’t know if you have shopped for a doll house lately but they can be pricey and cheesy. So get yourself an Ikea expedit bookshelf and go to town. Then when they are over the whole doll house thing. You have your self a bookshelf!

Love this little DIY from Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook. Who’s doesn’t have a basket laying around and why not give it a face lift? Brilliant!
