Embellished Glass Bottles with Vintage Flair

I’ve wanted some new embellished glass bottles for home decor, but they’re more fun to make than buy.  Plus you can decorate them exactly how you want without having to run to a dozen different stores looking for the perfect style.  I started by buying a couple of bottles from Hobby Lobby during a half […]

Washi Tape Chip Clips

Happy Saturday, friends!  Today I’m showing you a simple way to add some personality to a household necessity.  These little clothespin clips come in pretty handy all around the house- but we mostly use them as chip clips (and we always have plenty of chips around).  😉 You can buy a large pack of wooden […]
