Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Tear-Free Gingerbread Building

We also used some small red Christmas bells because I picked them up for cheap at the craft store.

    Saturday Sparks — Kid-Made Christmas Ornaments

    Somehow we have found ourselves with an entire unscheduled weekend in the heart of holiday season. Go figure. So after doing a quick round-up of some fun ideas on Pinterest this morning we decided to take at least part of the day to create some homemade Christmas ornaments. I came up with some rather festive ideas during my search, all of which are kid-friendly, which means they should also be appropriate projects for the man in your life if the whole family wants to join the fun (It had to be said). While some of the ideas may be a bit difficult for younger children and adult supervision should be used with all these projects, I think you’ll…
