Let's Get Crafty: Painted Pumpkins

Alisa Burke has a beautiful tutorial for painting your own pumpkins. I love the color combinations - a nice alternative to orange and black. These would look beautiful beyond halloween as a decoration around the home! Here is the tutorial and more amazing photographs. -Callie 


Happiness: A Little Inspiration

My weekly Happiness post is thanks to Dana Radu via Pinterest. I just love the colors in the picture and the simple statement that rings so true! -Callie 


The Four Seasons

I squealed when I found these photographs in the preview Rue's Anniversary Issue. They are the work of Andrea Bricco who captures the four seasons using food. Here is WINTER and SPRING (my favorite!). -Callie 


Freshen Up With: Lenneke Wispelwey Vases

The textured ceramic vases from Lenneke Wispelwey are so visually appealing that I would use them beyond a holder for flowers. Here are some more items from Lenneke Wispelwey, including dishes and buttons. I'm really digging the yellow cakestand Here. -Callie


Happiness: Fall Colors



Colorful Paper Crafts

While I was wondering around on Flickr, I stumbled upon some amazing crafts by Haru's Paper Celebration. These colorful wreaths and paper mobiles are the perfect addition to your home and would create a burst of vibrant color!  -Callie 


Happiness: Color Crush & Milk Glass

Today's inspiration for me is all about flowers. As the weather cools down here in North Carolina I am now able to spend time in my garden without melting. This pink arrangement  (via Pinterest) is in a vintage milk glass vase, my favorite kind of vase, and makes me happy when I look at it. The arrangement HERE  (via Pinterest) using milk glass and roses is so, so lovely and will help me get through my day of being indoors (when I just want to be outside in the garden "puttering").  -Callie 


Let's Get Crafty: Pie Tin Mirror

I can't get over the simplicity and style of this easy to do craft on Sweet Paul. It's a mirror filled pie tin that requires 3 items - tin, mirror & glue. I also think these pie tins would look great filled with mirrors. 


Rainbow Chaser: Recycled Paper Pencils

The recycled paper pencils from Etsy's Moxiepear are at the top of my rainbow chasing list! They have a matte finish and black eraser that set's them apart from the everyday pencil. I just love them resting in the jar for a dash of bright color in an office or kid's playroom. So pretty. -Callie 


Happiness: Strawberry Milk Whoopie Pies

I'm so excited to announce that I am starting a new feature called Happiness. It will be a weekly inspirational post on something that I want to share with you, my dear readers. It might be a photograph that inspires me, a delicious recipe or favorite object for the home. My motivation for this new category is to encourage you to seek what makes you happy!

So, my first post is about strawberry milk whoopie pies! Not only do the colors inspire me, but the recipe found on Sprinkle Bakes would be fun to do at your next party! Click HERE for the recipe. 


Vintage Baggage

The still life compositions by realist painter Christopher Scott are breathtaking. I particularly love the baggage pieces. It makes me wonder what's inside each one. I also love the gumball machine painting here. -Callie 


Gold Pops

One of my favorite colors to add throughout the home is gold. This makes me laugh because as a kid I remember my mother loving old gold mirrors and home accessories and I used to think they were unattractive. Thirty three years later, I am totally in love...

p.s. I'm really loving the metallic pouf. Wouldn't they look great in a set of two or three?
