Found Object Christmas Tree

I know Christmas is over - boo! But I still have a lot of yule-tide imagery to share - bear with me!

Loving this brilliantly creative Christmas tree by Dutch graphic designer Jane Schouter. She made it with objects she’s collected over the years - what a great idea!!

Found via many different blog venues - but most recently refound at WeeBirdy!

Simple Pen Gift Idea!

An amazingly simple (and great!) gift idea from One Pearl Button for those stockings that need stuffed! I would get the black pens though - just so the caps and end pieces don't clash with the designs.

Thanks Craftzine - finding inspirational stuff as always!

Makes you just want to snuggle up in a corner with a cup of hot chocolate doesn't it?

Yup, and it's still 70 degrees here in Indy - so that is some pretty powerful imagery!

Thanks to Layers of Meaning for sharing these cozy, comfy images from West Elm.

DIY Hot Pad Tutorial from My Byrd House

With my newest obsession being fabric it only makes sense that I start obsessing about learning how to sew, right?? Just what my husband wants to hear - new obsession = new things to buy. Hey, it SAVES money in the long run right? I mean I WOULD be making things I would normally have to buy at full retail price...things like hot pads, curtains, gifts - oh the possibilities!

Anyways, this great little DIY hot pad tutorial is from Lucy at My Byrd House and looks like something I might be able to tackle (with a sewing machine of course!).

Thanks to the wonderful Craftzine for getting me there!

Planting Color and Patterns in the Garden

Looks at this lovely bloom from HeirloomGardener, isn't it too lovely for words?! Our fall blooms are pretty weak - all we have going for us right now is hyssop, lavender and sedum autumn joy. But this - ah this is beautiful! Only question now is what is it? I need to find it!

Putting the Lime in the Coconut

I am becoming quite obsessions with pale lime green for home decor ideas! I am decking out my laundry room with lime green bins and these subtle lime green touches in this dream kitchen from the Inspired Room is perfect! Looks kinda cottagy but trendy all at the same time! Sigh!
