Free Printable Welcome Spring


free spring printable

Who doesn’t love fresh flowers? Running to the floral shop has become a ritual for me. Every week I go on a search for a fresh flower arrangement. I used to be able to just walk into the backyard and pick a nice bouquet. But, somehow being busy with kiddos and life doesn’t leave a whole lot of time to tend to the flower gardens….or get a pedi….or finish that recommended book.

But, somehow, no matter how exhausted I am walking around in the floral shop seems to inspire me. I walk out of the shop re-energized with a smile on my face.

Today, I want to share a few of my favorite Spring vignettes and my hope is to inspire you to hop on over to the floral shop and find a bouquet that makes your home happy. I also hope you will take some time for you today….print off a printable from some of my favorite bloggers and create a vignette on your mantel or a centerpiece on your table. Just take time to enjoy the simple things….like pedicures or finishing that book!free printable welcome spring


First up on my list of favorites: You really have to pop over to her blog and experience all of the fabulous elements. One photo just doesn’t do this dining room justice.

Second, I love this fresh and bright centerpiece from Kristin over at Yellow Bliss Road. There is just something about lemons and tulips full of sunshine!

Now, let’s talk about this springtime vignette. Oh my. I can’t seem to pick a favorite piece and this girl can style a room, vignette, and chalkboard like no one can!

And now for a bit of whimsy. I love this floral arrangement almost as much as I love my Starbucks caramel macchiato! Such a fun element adding the carrots. It definitely will be a conversation starter.

Rustic Compass Star Snowflake Ornament

handmade Christmas Ornament Blog Hop
Well, do I dare say Happy Holidays? Christmas is just around the corner and I am participating in a fabulous Blog Hop today! 30+ handmade ornaments to inspire you! I can’t wait for you to hop around and see all the wonderful creations! But, first a little bit about my rustic compass star snowflake ornament.

rustic compass star Christmas ornament


We all remember learning about the compass star in school, right? Well, my oldest daughter had been studying pretty hard for her test on the compass star a few weeks back. She was pretty proud of herself for receiving 100% on her test. She earned it! So, I thought I would create a special memory this Christmas in honor of her excellent study habits. A momento of her accomplishment.


Let’s get started on the tutorial:

compass star snowflake ornament



glue gun


bakers twine

coin medallions

tooth picks

fishing line or clear thread

compass star snowflake ornament


To start, add a small dab of glue at the top. Simply wrap the bakers twine around the tooth pick. Once you have wrapped 3/4 of the way down the toothpick, stop and add another dab of glue to the bottom to secure the end. Make enough wrapped sticks to fill the coin of the compass star.

Next, align your sticks accordingly on the compass coin. You will need to attach these with E6000. Hot glue will not stick to the coins. Let dry for a few hours. Attach fishing line or clear thread to hang.

Pretty simple hey? I love simple. This ornament took me less than 10 minutes to make (drying time aside). It was pretty fun to wrap the bakers twine around the toothpicks and see the fun pattern it created-making ordinary toothpicks pretty extraordinary with a rustic feel!

I would love to hear what special items you create for the holidays! Please let me know in the comments below and then head off to the next blog hop stop!

Modern Rustic Fall Tour

Fall 2014 Home Tour blog hop

Hey there!

Are you up for a Fall Tour?

Fall is my favorite time of the year. The rustling of leaves beneath your feet.

The smell of the woods. The crisp air waking up your face in the morning.

Campfires and giggles.

A time to start nesting, preparing for winter’s arrival.

I am so thrilled to be participating in this home tour blog hop hosted by my friend, Michele from Shelstring Blog.

Be sure to visit her beautiful home.
