• A Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Mantel

    We don’t really do anything special for St. Patrick’s day, that is if you don’t count eating Lucky Charms for breakfast special. I had this idea last year of an all green vintage book display for the mantel. I thought it would be a cute way to tie in St. Patrick’s day to my farmhouse decorating style. The only problem was last year I had only two or three vintage green books. So anytime that I was out thrifting I would keep an eye out for vintage green hard covered books. I have collected just enough to put together this farmhouse St. Patrick’s day mantel decor. I tried finding an…

  • DIY Geometric Wall Art for Spring

    This post is sponsored by DecoArt. Last week I was inspired by my friend Katie @BakerNest on Instagram and her beautiful barn quilt art. I decided to try my hand at making one so I grabbed a small scrap piece of wood and tried it out. I love it so much that I wanted to make a larger piece to hang on my wall for my spring decor. I chose the space above my DIY side table for my new DIY art. The only problem is that barn quilts are square patterns, and a square wasn’t going to work for that space. So my barn quilt wall art became a…

  • Paper Heart Garland

    Valentines Day is almost here! I shared a throwback to last years Simple Valentines day decor on Instagram and I realized that I never shared how I made my heart garland. This paper heart garland is a quick cheap DIY Valentines day craft that will add a touch of Valentines cuteness to any spot in your home! I didn’t put up my paper heart garland up right away this year because I wasn’t sure where to use it. So I kept it tucked away in my Valentines Day decor bin to be pulled out when I found a place for it. Then of course I misplaced the bin! I seriously…

  • A Nutcracker Birthday Party

    Welcome to my daughters Land of Sweets Nutcracker birthday party! It is full of Sugar Plum Fairies, Ballerinas and of course Nutcrackers! This was such a fun birthday party theme to decorate for. I tried to make it as pink, wintry, and sparkly as I could! My daughter asked for a Nutcracker birthday long before we even knew that the new Nutcracker movie was coming out. We did go see it and I think it just made us both more excited to have a Nutcracker birthday party! The first step of a birthday party are the party invitations! I found these nutcracker party invitations on Etsy from LeaDesignsShop. They come…

  • My Deconstructed Couch

    Hi friends! Today I am going to show you how to deconstruct a couch! It really isn’t as scary of a project as it may seem. I promise! I found this couch at my local Habitat for Humanity for $30. I had a $25 off coupon which brought down the price of the couch to $5! Habitat for Humanity is my favorite place to look for furniture for projects. The thrift stores in my area are less then awesome and don’t carry furniture, so Habitat is my go to. If you are looking for vintage or project furniture I suggest checking out your local Habitat!     Most people might…

  • Neutral Nutcracker Tablescape

      The Nutcracker. It is a Christmas classic full of color and sparkle and Christmas magic. I decided to take a new spin on the nutcracker Christmas decorations and create a Neutral Nutcracker Tablescape with just a small touch of color and the same amount of Christmas magic.     I had a few of these neutral nutcrackers already from a few years ago and I remember thinking when I created last years Christmas tablescape how fun it would be to create a neutral nutcracker tablescape for Christmas. Last year I didn’t have enough nutcrackers and by the time I started looking there weren’t any to be found as most…
