Confetti Countdown

Matchbox confetti holders! Isn't this a fantastic idea for New Years? It's budget friendly and would be super fun at a wedding too.

Tangerine Tango

Since the Pantone color of the year happens to be my all-time favorite hue, I had to post something with all things orange, or tangerine if you may. Add an unexpected orange tchotchke to literally any room, it'll add instant life and I promise you'll smile every time you walk by it, just as I do.

DIY Determined #12

I saw this DIY project over the summer and promised myself I'd meet the challenge of gluing one thousand coffee filters to a styrofoam ring, yes that's correct, I literally used A THOUSAND! My glue gun and I have been hard at work for almost a month now, what a tedious process, but well worth the effort, check out my finished wreath:

Merry Christmas

Treasured Turfs

DIY Determined #11

When Mom told me she had 25 wine glasses that I could have for our soiree, I quickly pulled out my paintbrush and this picture I've had saved for months. 
Guests had a really hard time misplacing their drinks at my house, the chalkboard painted stem is not only brilliant, but was a sure hit with everyone! Here's my final product:
So cute, right?
Happy Holidays! -SaLLy

Happy Hanukkah

I'm a few days late as tonight's the third night, but whatever, Happy Hanukkah/Chanukah, y'all! Remember my Menorah Makeover? I found some ombre Hanukkah candles at Target that get along mighty well with Mom's thrifty find, here's my setup from the first night. Now bring on the latkes!

Crafty Credenza

I bought this credenza/buffet at Goodwill for $65. It absolutely needed a little of my TLC and without fail has turned out to be the topic of conversations while walking by with visitors.  I think it turned out a smidge too purple, however everyone else has convinced me the color is a keeper for now. I've since painted the walls a pukey green khaki color, which looks amazing against the credenza. With the addition of my new orange Buddha on top, I've covered all secondary colors in my dining room.

Marshmallow Methanol

 I'm totally acquiring this Amber Rose supported Vodka for our Holiday Housewarming this weekend. After countless days of trying to ponder up a bev using the Marshmallow flavor, all I could come up with was adding it to Hot Cocoa. That's definitely a party-of-one drink ;) Today a dear friend of mine gave me the genius idea of  making S'mores Shooters! Here's the components: Graham cracker rimmed glass + Hershey's syrup + table cream + Marshmallow Vodka = the drink my guests (yup, fellas too) will be shooting as they enter our holiday decked house, cheers!

Breadbox Blind

So now that we have butcher block counter tops, our breadbox needed an adjustment as it blended right in. One hour, one light sanding, and one can of white spray paint later...it turned out superb and totally stands out now against the counters and especially the backsplash!

Marry The Night

I finally had the opportunity to watch Lady Gaga's latest fifteen minute video, insane. A little kooky indeed, however this chic is mad talented. I love that she is bleaching out her hair while sporting sparkly Louboutin's in the bathtub! Cheerio's anyone?
