Do you realize, Easter is less than two weeks away?!

I haven’t even begun to think about Easter decorating.  But, I know many of you have it on your mind.

In fact, this rustic burlap Easter egg wreath I made last year has been getting lots and lots of views this year.


I love that it was quick and easy and inexpensive to put together.   And there’s plenty of time if you want to make one too!

Features from Last Week’s Party


My Picks….

I’m always amazed at Christy’s creativity and this week she impressed us with a fabulous re-do of a thrifted end table.  She went outside her usual style and comfort zone to create this stunning piece.
