multiple uses for a bunt pan

I came across this photograph tonight and have fallen in love with this idea! This is such a great way to add color and excitement to what could have otherwise been a pretty dull kitchen. I really like the idea of creating wall art with objects around the house. If you have a hard time spending money on a piece of art that you will never be able to "use", just buy something practical; like 17 bunt pans!!

making curtains without touching a sewing machine

You should never underestimate the power of curtains. They can add so much to a room. I saw on younghouselove this week how they made curtains without using a sewing machine at all. I thought that I would give it a try. Here are some pictures that I took along the way and some instructions on how you can make your own. Above is the fabric that I chose. (Don't give away my secret but I got this fabric for $1.50 a yard and spent $15 on the whole project!)

  • First, cut your curtains to your desired length and width.

  • place hem tape around edges

  • iron over hem tape

  • peel paper backing off of hem tape

  • fold fabric over hem tape

  • iron over fabric to make hem tape stick
  • Do this to every side, and fold the top over twice to create a place for the curtain rod to go through

You can put another pair of sheer curtains in the middle if you want.

And.. here is the finished product!

I heart lamps.

Lamps are one of my passions. I know it's an unusual passion to have, but I can't do anything about it. I just love them. Here are a few of my favorite designs as of lately.

I am obsessed with these!!

Here are instructions on how to make these.

This is such a cool idea!


Great way to dress up just a glass vase.

You can be creative with what you decide to put inside these vases.

I just love this design.
