Post image for DIY: Update Your Tired Toms With Color Blocking

Toms are the type of shoe that are so easy to throw on and go that they tend to get pretty worn out.  Mine just reached the point where they had a hole in the toe, so I decided it was time to give them a little makeover – simultaneously fixing the hole and giving them a whole new look.  Read more »

Post image for Moss Graffiti By Anna Garforth: Admire It & Make It

Something about moss has always been intriguing to me. I love the way it looks; the way it feels; how easy it is to pull apart and put back together. Read more »

Hello there! What kind of moss do I use? Any kind would work? I have a bunch of Scottish moss.

MORE white appropriation. Aboriginal culture trivialized and used as decor. P.S. Why was my last comment deleted instead of addressed? an't stand hearing the uncomfortable truth?

If there’s a piece of furniture on the side of the road, I’ll be the first one to pull over and see if it can be used (in any possible way) in my apartment. Read more »

I love this article. So many people just throw away old furniture and buy new without even thinking about doing this.

Never pull tacks out like that , as you will leave dents in the wood. Use a tack puller from the local hardware and lift tacks from an angle where you wont leave a mark. Just my 33 years in the trade "opinion"

Okay, I’m fairly certain this is meant for kids, but I am a huge fan of grown-ups getting in on the fun, too. The link below will lead you to instructions on how to create your own A-frame tent. I’m thinking  few modifications could have something like this ready to go for a trip to the beach or a picnic, too. It’s a little more invoved than a lot of DIYs I’ve seen lately, but with something like a tent, I’d say that’s expected. If you have a spare Saturday (perhaps over a holiday weekend?), give it a try and let us know how it goes. (A Beautiful Mess)

That looks lovely. What hand stitch did you use? Also, for the non-denim scraps, did you fold over all of the edges or leave them out? Thanks :)

That's so cute! I love all the DIY's on this blog, they're all so creative!! xxHannah http://www.thesoftoptimist.com

Post image for DIY 2-Ingredient Air Freshener

Who doesn’t love a fresh-smelling home? I sure do. I love using air fresheners, but the problem I’ve found with a lot of them is that they just mask the smell instead of actually eliminating it. Not this one! Not only does this air freshener neutralize bad smells, you also get to pick your own scent, and it looks adorable! Read more »

Does anyone know where the baking soda products come from. if it comes from Arm and Hammer, then they do animal testing .... I would like to know. This is a good idea.
loup -Feb 09, 2014, 3:55PM
How long does it last before replacing the soda? Why not leave the jar open top? Thx!

They cannot be large or they would bind and stall from contact with the wood. Searching gradually and attentively is all you need. Modern saw technology offers potential owners two distinctly different paths when it comes to what type of technology they want their saw to operate with.

Men usually use aftershave creams or lotions following a good shave. They guarantee an instant cut to the hair and never give chance of any pulling or tugging. Again, always shave against the grain to have a closer shave.

Hi! I'm Laney and I absolutely love your store and your blog. I'm actually making a blog of my own at http://vintageteens.wordpress.com/ and I was wondering if it would be possible to use the collage you made as my background. I love it and would of course give you credit but i just wanted to do the right thing by asking you before i made it permanent. Thanks so much for your time! xo

Post image for Home Décor DIY: Thought Bubbles

Today’s DIY is a fun and easy project that requires little supplies and results in some seriously adorable decorations that you can use in your home, for a party, or in our case, to make our office space prettier! I’ve seen these string balls before and it was so much fun to finally make them – it’s a little addicting, too, once you start making them it’s hard to stop! We like to call them “thought bubbles” that hang delicately in our workspace :) Read more »

But before you do it put vasaline on the balloon so its easier to take the balloon out so it doesnt stick to the yarn.
