• Shoesday Tuesday – Oodles of Doodles!

    May 22, 2012

    I love canvas sneakers. I love the idea of WHITE canvas sneakers, but in reality, mine wind up being gray smudgy tennies that vaguely resemble the white shoes they started out as. In fact, when I’m watching Baby traipse around the resort in her one pair of white Keds that stay pristinely white – I…

  • Oh, Koi! Free Embroidery Pattern

    May 16, 2012

    I have a hard time staying still. Like a really, really hard time staying still. When I was a kid, my babysitter exorcised me with crisco because I was always tapping my foot and therefore must be possessed. That was fun explaining to my parents afterward! I just have way, way too much energy! Because…

  • Shoesday Tuesday – Fun & Lacy Flats Revamp!

    May 15, 2012

    I don’t know about you, but I have THREE pairs of black flats that I never wear. They are all really plain and I got a really great deal on them. Every time, seeing that low, low price tag made me see the deal and not the fact that I already had a pair or…

  • Terrarium Pendants on the Cheap!

    May 2, 2012

    Terrariums are all the rage right now and projects for them are popping up all over the internet. I have been intrigued. Some time ago I saw a necklace with a terrarium pendant from Anthropologie. I knew I had to have one. Then, I saw the price. Seriously, $128 for a little glass vial filled with…

  • Hello Sailor – Vintage Anchor Tattoo Inspired Free Embroidery Pattern

    May 2, 2012

    When I was a kid, I spent a lot of weekends with my Mimmie & Poppa (my awesome grandparents). Sometimes Mimmie had to work running a dry cleaner and I went with her. In fact here are me, my sister and a friend in the lobby of said cleaners on Halloween. I am the clown…

  • Custom Kitchen Rugs for Any Color Scheme

    April 30, 2012

    I want what I want. I wanted to paint my kitchen lavender, despite the fact that I knew that there were little to no kitchen accessories that were going to be easily purchasable that would match. I whipped out that paint brush anyway. Then I proceeded to moan and complain about I couldn’t find a…

  • Bow Pads – Cute Homemade Notepads

    April 23, 2012

    I was walking around in a very chichi (translation: expensive) shop and saw the cutest note pads. They were, however, so far out of my price range that it wasn’t even funny. Plus, I didn’t like the sayings on them. A stop by Wal-Mart and Hancocks on the way home, and I have 5 of…

  • Shoestaches – Mustaches for your Shoes!

    April 17, 2012

    This has been by far one of my more popular posts. Some ask, why shoestaches? I say, why not? This DIY is weird – not going to lie – the first response I got was “WTF are you doing over there?” and “Why?” What some might fail to see is that this is fun. Hip…
