I’m planning a little arts and crafts session this weekend to celebrate Easter.  I came across some lovely images for inspiration. Are these Pantone eggs fantastic or what?!

Happy Easter!






Before and After

I’ve always enjoyed Before and After segments.  Particularly when it came to the makeovers featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show.  It’s over a year later; and there’s still a small hole in my life that’s felt every day at 4 pm.  Oh, how I miss you Oprah.

So, here’s a little bit of my own Before and After.  Have a great Tuesday!

Before: Drab and ugly grey IKEA TV stand

After: Red paint + gift wrap + Modge Podge = Retro chic TV stand

Before: Boring IKEA chest of drawers

After: Mercury glass lamp + Anthropologie knobs + hot pink serving tray + fresh flowers = Whimsical and beautiful showpiece

Before: Orelia as a 1-year-old puppy lounging with InStyle magazine

After: A highly evolved and self-actualized 3-year-old Orelia reading Awaken the Giant Within by Tony Robbins
