For as long as I can remember, I have loved candles. Adding a soft glow to your living room on a cold night or creating a sparkling atmosphere out on a patio with candles can really improve the ambiance – especially when they are scented! My favorite scents are the natural smelling ones like herbs, citrus fruits, and light floral aromas. There are so many candles out there in stores, but I can be really picky when it comes to the scents, meaning I have to spend a whole lot more money on them.
As it was probably obvious by the name of my blog, I always get really excited about Easter! My apartment is basically decorated for Easter year round (so much bunny artwork), but If I get an excuse to go all out and add pastel colors then I am 100% going to go for it.

For those of you who live in a small space like I do, you know that keeping things organized can be a challenge. Between collecting clothes and adding to my ever growing craft supply, my things started to consume me. I had items stuffed under my bed, shoved into my closet (and the laundry closet… and the coat closet…), and lying all over my desk. It was driving me crazy, and I knew it was time for a change.

You pull out all of your glitzy garlands, scented candles, and pine needle centerpieces out of storage, set them up around the house, and then take a look to see that something is missing. Though finding old treasures from past years is fun, it’s always exciting to add something new into the mix.
Artwork is something that I don’t think you need to stop acquiring. This is something I learned from my parents growing up, as they would buy one new piece of art for every anniversary. If a room needed refreshing, they would take one piece down and grab another out of storage. Though I love my herringbone brick artwork, I stumbled upon a piece of art that I REALLY wanted for my living room.
Y’all, I’m going to start out this post by saying this DIY is for those who are really looking for a project. Like a project that you can work on in front of the TV for a week or two. It’s hard to justify making something sometimes when I go to Target [4 times in one week… help please] and they have gorgeous throw pillows for $20! The issue is that I already had pillows, and all I really needed were pillow cases. Continue reading “DIY Embroidered Tassel Pillowcase”
