DIY: CHOCOLATE BIRD’S NEST

How is it possible that Easter is already around the corner? The weather here in Boston is as cold as ever. Regardless, I’m a mom and as much as I want to hide under the blanket until it’s 70 degrees outside; I can’t. Mommy duties require being really really excited for just about any holiday. … More DIY: CHOCOLATE BIRD’S NEST

Nightstand Makeover

I’ve always had a thing for thrifted items, particularly furniture pieces. You never know what gems you’ll find. Yes, it takes a little work to turn these loved treasures into something spectacular but it’s well worth the effort. Seven months ago, we bought a pair of nightstand for $20 (!) a piece. After some sanding … More Nightstand Makeover

DIY Rose Balls

This post is way overdue! For my sister’s wedding, we made rose balls for the reception hall. Initially, we thought about using fresh carnations b/c they are sturdy and would last the entire day. However, we had problems with finding foam balls for fresh flowers (at least in the quantity that we wanted!). A revision … More DIY Rose Balls

She gave my newly … More PARIS, A Gift!
