Baby Bouquet

This is a bouquet my mom made using baby onesies! You roll up the item of clothing to look like a rose bud and secure using floral wire & floral tape. Then accent with other silk flowers and greenery. You can use socks, onesies, bibs, etc. It was a hit at the baby shower!


Yes, I planted a small garden and I have results! I must admit is was a very simple and effortless process. Plant and water...the sun did the rest. Now to find a recipe to use them in!

Thought I would share my most recent project. It didn't take me long and it was actually kind of fun. just wood letters covered with scrapbook paper (using mod podge as the adhesive) and sand the edges and then accessorize as desired.

Domestic Inspiration

do·mes·tic –adjective 1. of or pertaining to the home, the household, household affairs, or the family: domestic pleasures.

Hopefully this will become a collection of inspiration for all things domestic! Each of our homes play a huge roll in our lives as the platform from which we function!! With the recent turn of events in my life I have come to a new appreciation of "home" and look forward to being settled again and having a place to call home!! No matter where your home is, how much time you spend there, or the people who occupy it; to you it is "home". I hope the word "home" brings a sense of comfort and joy and that this will serve as a way to improve your home life!!
