my new favorite quote! July 23, 2008
to the world you may be one person,
to one person you may be the world
this is a pic from west elm’s new catalog, click on the pic to see the site. I thought this was a crafty, diy idea for adding a little style on the inexpensive side! cut out a shape of a vase or trophy you like on any paper, they used newspaper like print. The other interesting piece is a crown blown up – enlarge your favorite pic and crop in a frame….picture perfect!
the other pic is one I use of a map of Venice I got from a piece of wrapping paper! have fun decorating!

these ideas are sooooo clever….
the first one is using clear ponytail elastics to keep your flowers in place- the other ideas are smart new uses for old things.. instead of using the travel sauce cups from your tupperwear set -use travel size bottle to hold your dressing. The coolest one .. no pun intended- is making for making your own cold gel pack- take one part rubbing alcohol and three parts water in a resealable plastic bag overnight in the freezer for a soft gel pack! cool right!
glamour magazine, one of my new subscriptions had this fabulous layout for “20 things you’ll ever need to know how to cook” I just love the way this looks and I think it is handy for all my girls learning how to cook! click on the link above to the website
