UPCYCLING: K-Cup Holiday Gnomes

Recycled K Cup Holiday Gnomes
For my birthday this past summer I got a Keurig Coffee Machine and I have to say, it’s my new bestie. I love how easy it is to make a cup of coffee whenever I want one without wasting a whole pot of coffee. How spoiled are we that we can press a button and voila – a fresh cup of coffee. There is a little bit of guilt with each cup when I throw away that little plastic K-Cup. Uggh. I was determined to come up with an idea to recycle some of the K-Cups. The light bulb went off one day because I’ve also been wanting to make some gnomes for the holiday season.

HOMEROOM: Minted Wall Gallery {the blues}

Minted Wall Gallery Beach PrintsHello, hello friends. I’ve been on a little break but I’m so excited my first fresh post of the year is all about a room refresh. While I was taking a little blog break, the good folks over at MINTED invited me to pick out a few pieces of artwork from their amazing selection. I think I could have scrolled through the prints for days. Good thing you can sort by theme and color.
