How cool would it be to print on fabric or on odd shaped paper — or even on a post-it note? It would certainly come in handy when doing DIY craft projects. Well, apparently you can do all of those things. Here are some tips, including step-by-step instructions on how to print on various mediums. Click on the photo to take you to the instructions.
I’ve done several weddings now where the groom and groomsmen have worn Chuck Taylors. But how about the bride? Here is a great way to make the iconic shoe suitable for a beautiful bride — custom monogramming in blue by The Monogram Studio! They would be fun to change into during the reception for pain-free dancing. These would also make great bridal party gifts.
I am so digging these gold canisters. They could be used for so many things — in the kitchen for tea, coffee, flour, sugar… In the bathroom for cotton balls or Q-tips… In the mud room for dog treats. The list goes on….
If you love them as much as I do, they can be purchased at Global Home.
My herb garden is doing fairly well this summer. The key, I have found, is consistent watering and regular pruning and harvesting. I am thankful to have space to plant the garden every year. If I didn’t have the room, I think I would approach herb gardening from the container route. This herb tower from Martha Stewart is a beautiful way to grow and showcase herbs using simple containers.
Our puppy Fletcher (18 months and still very, very “puppy”) is pretty adorable if I do say so myself. Shiny black coat, lean lab body, puppy eyes…. when she is behaving, boy is she the cutest dog in the world!
I wonder how she’d look donning this collar slider from BowhausNYC? I think it would be precious but I have a feeling my husband would nix the idea as too “girly!”
Owls are one of the latest themes in decorating these days. A friend decorated her nursery with an owl theme which was adorable. And everywhere you look there is owl everything — prints, decorative objects, …. and even drinking glasses! Aren’t these glasses from Paper Source (the store is more than just “paper!”) so cute? They’d make for a great gift.
I love when you can repurpose something common for another use. Like using a garden variety (no pun intended) pot to serve as an ice bucket. Pots and planters come in all sorts of sizes, shapes, and colors and can easily serve as a wine or ice bucket. Fill up the vessel with ice cubes, set out your beverages, and voila! — you have a party!
Mixers are key to making any good cocktail, which is why when I came across Fever Tree beverages I was pretty sure I hit the goldmine. This London-based company specializes in mixers like club soda and tonic water as well as sips such as ginger beer and ginger ale. I have not tried them yet, but as I understand it, their Fever Tree Lemon Tonic Water makes a mean gin and tonic.
The beverages are now available on Amazon.
So dog ownership is starting to grow on me. It is a lot (let me say it again — a LOT!) of work, but Fletcher really does bring a lot of joy to the home. Life in the house would not be the same now without her.
Fletcher is not calm enough yet (she is still very “puppy”) to be able to travel on a vacation with us, but one day we hope to be able to take her along on our adventures. This doggy cushion via Martha Stewart would be perfect to bring when traveling. I love that it can be rolled up and that it is machine washable.
I’ve included a recent photo of Fletcher at the bottom just in case you were wondering how she is doing!
