i didn’t have a chance to do a diy for this week since i’ve been traveling, so i thought i’d share some inspiration that i have saved with you guys…all projects i want to – and hopefully will – try soon!

left – these little pouches remind me of our leona beaded fringe belt! i’m thinking a combination of the two would be amazing. right – love these colorful rope necklaces by rachel rice.

one of our readers told me about these moroccan lanterns and i love them! via design sponge.

a couple of our readers tried the tie-dye cupcakes we posted a couple weeks back and the results are beautiful! these would be great for easter or a spring party :)

tie dye cupcakes!!

one of our fp girls sent me these photos the other day, saying she was inspired by my vintage loves bag post last week me to make these cupcakes! she made them for the staff and customers at roosevelt field this weekend. don’t they look amazing?! i totally want to try to make some.

here’s how to make them!

buy a box of yellow cake mix and separate the batter into 6 bowls. add food coloring for red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and green. fill the cupcake liners with a little bit of each color – but don’t mix the colors! and there you go… tie dye cupcakes :)

tie dye is my bag

how cool are these tie dye bags? we are using these as packaging for the vintage loves collection and i think they are so beautiful –  plus they were made with love by some of our fp girls right here at the home office.

the ingredients:

dye in shades of fuchsia, orange, yellow, purple, turquoise and green!
