UPCYCLING: Candy Tins to Travel Tins


I’ve saving up these little candy tins so that I could upcycle them into something. I wasn’t sure how I was going to use them but little tins always come in handy.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Creative Party 268 | DIY French Herb Pot

FROM MY ARCHIVES : DIY French Herb Pot

The DIY French Herb Pot I made years ago is still one of my favorite projects and was inspired by a pots I saw in another blogger's garden. It inspired me to make my own and seeing it again makes me want to make more of them and create a pretty herb garden. Inspiration is all around us which is why I love hosting this party. 

If you’re new to homework and The Inspiration Board, I host a link up party where people can share their amazing projects and inspiration. So whether you’re here to be inspired or to inspire, welcome!

HOME ROOM: Green Glass Coastal Décor

Green Glass Decor HutchAs always, I’m a little behind on my seasonal décor but I finally added some summer to my dining room. I love switching up the knick knacks and dishes on this hutch and this time I went with a green glass coastal look. I was surprised at how much green glass I had in my cupboards that I was able to use.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 266 & Berry Good

Welcome back everyone and happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with fun, creativity, and of course, relaxation. We installed a doggy door for our little Sammy this weekend. She getting older and needing to go out more frequently and those middle of the night trips outside are getting old. It’s reminiscent of the baby feedings and since I’ve been there, done that,  we’re hoping the doggy door will solve the problem. I like to call it the door of freedom.

DRESS CODE: Summer Lace Shorts & Accessories | 50+ Fashion

50  Fashion Summer Shorts and accessoriesIt’s officially summer and here in Southern California that means shorts and flip flops. Okay, we wear shorts and flip flops nearly year round but at a certain age, the shorts season starts getting shorter. Maybe as we age we get a little more cold blooded but I find myself only wearing shorts when it’s super hot.
