wreath time.

I thought I'd share these unique wreath ideas I saw on Martha Stewart's website - so fun! Of course, instruction included. I'm especially excited because this is my first Christmas in our new house, and I'm looking forward to decorating!

Paper doilies...

Gift boxes...

with matching garland...

3 in a row...

And my personal favourite...the Christmas card display! How fun is this. I'm seriously considering it. It's easy too!

cute DIY gift idea.

Hey all, check out this cute DIY idea I saw over at design*sponge - candles in vintage tins. This idea comes at a perfect time, since I have recently been admiring some pretty tins at the thrift store, but I didn't buy them because I didn't have a use for them - now I do! They even give you the instructions for how to make them. Enjoy! (ps these would also make a great gift idea...Christmas is coming!)

Can anyone help me? I need a few things things for wedding decor, and I was wondering if anyone has them kicking around their homes, and might be willing to lend/give/sell for a small amount?

Wooden rain barrels - need 3, all the same height

Wooden ladders - need 4, doesn't matter if they match

Galvanized pails - need a variety, mismatched, varying heights

Wooden crates - need a variety, mismatched

Let me know!!

must-try hair style.

I tend to go hair-down to fancy things (mostly because I'm updo challenged...) but I must try this. (I also have a big soft spot for red hair.) This updo comes with instructions here!
