Blog Rust RemoverPhoto Sources: photo 1photo 2, photo 3photo 4

I love crisp white linens and towels - like these beautiful vintage linens found on Pinterest. Nothing looks cleaner than bright whites. Unless of course, you get a stain. Most stains can be removed with a spot remover or by bleaching the heck out of it. But not a rust stain.

Celebrations: cornhusk & white pumpkins



It’s October! I’m officially bringing out the pumpkins. This year, I wanted to do something different with my pumpkin décor and keep things natural. So where do you start to get that true natural pumpkin look? At the dollar store, of course.

It’s no secret that I love twigs and branches. Marty’s Musings ushers in fall with a fantastic branch candle centerpiece. Berries, pumpkins and pinecones complete the table centerpiece.

Giveaway: downtown tape {washi love}

I love Washi Tape. It’s a new found love. I’ve known about Washi Tape for a long time but only recently discovered how fun it is to use on projects.

Inkling: moving in circles with StampingGear

I used to love playing with Spirograph. Do they still make that toy? The one where you can draw all kinds of cool circles that create designs? Well, I got to test out a new craft supply called StampingGear and it took me back to those fun days.

Inkling: fall colors {mustard yellow & grey printables}

I’m still transitioning to fall. I haven’t quite embraced deep oranges and browns yet but I’m getting there. And since I’m taking baby steps toward autumn, I thought I’d make something mustard yellow and grey.
