July wk 3 features


Polka Dot Punch @To Work With My Hands

I love this idea from Karen at To Work With My Hands. Freeze juice and place the frozen cubes in some 7-up or ginger ale and when it melts it slowly flavors the soda. Totally doing this for our next party. 

Painted Swiss Cross Curtains @Houseologie

These curtains from Leigh Anne over at Houseologie is just amazing. She made her own stencil and made her own cross pattern. What I love most is that it doesn’t have to be a perfectly crisp painted cross. 



Features will be pinned to the Merry Monday Linky Party Board

Soda Bottle Fairy Garden House

Soda Bottle Fairy Garden I love fairy gardens and have always wanted to make one for our home. With the kids on summer break, I thought making one together would be the perfect summer project. Plus, it’s a great way for me to show the kids that you can recycle things from around the house and make it into something new […] Continue reading →
