Just got my first copy...

of Anthology magazine! I snagged mine from Willow Home and Garden just as it was about to close it's doors for the evening. I was not disappointed as I also got a few last minute Christmas gifts. Sadly to say a lot of printed magazines are becoming extinct, but I give props to those who are using these hard times to start something fresh and new! :)

Snapshots | Venezia

The colors and vibrancy in Venice were more than I anticipated. There was inspiration all around from the people to the arts and flavors of this little city.

POUF...there it is!

My obsession with soft, fluffy and functional things are all encompassed with these fun "poufs" that are a great accessory for any room. They bring warmth and character as well as serving as extra seating or a comfy foot rest.

I read this article not too long ago about the different organizational methods between right and left-brainers. I'm always looking for a new way to organize my jewelry and saw this frame here and couldn't resist making it the right-brainer way. Thanks to some leftover fabric, ribbon and corkboard, here's what evolved into a functional and whimsical piece for my everyday use.

Cake Pops

As wedding & baby season rolls around, I'm starting to see that tissue paper & leftover fabric can definitely come in handy. Also, here's a glimpse of these fun little cake pops I experimented with from Bakerella.
