I found this white rustic entry table a few months ago at Osmond Design and loved it...and really wanted it for my front entry. I figure its the perfect place to decorate for the "smaller" holidays where you don't have a lot of decor but just want to add a touch to your home.
Lisa helped me add to the lantern I bought from Taipan ($13 with my 25 percent off coupon!) I really love how it turned out. Again the burlap and script ribbon is from the Emporium at Thanksgiving Point. I found the cute little bird nest at Hobby Lobby...2 for $2.
This is my favorite accessory at Taipan right now. $6.97! They have a few different options of the "artichoke".
It was fun to add a new welcome to people when they come to my house!

The newly bedazzled birdcage inspired me to change the ribbon in Khloe's room. I bought it all at The Emporium at Thanksgiving Point. They have such great ribbon! I love the turquoise with the green and cream layered. The small jar is simply cream ribbon with a skinny pink layered on top.
I loved this ribbon. Simply tie a bow and then tie the bow a second time to get the four-looped look.
I bunched the scraps of the other ribbons in the center of this bow. It makes such a big difference for very little money!

I had to share some pictures of other uses for the cute tags I posted about last week. I found some different ribbon to add from The Emporium. I love how this one turned out.
Adding it to my wreaths added just a splash of color and whimsy! I loved the script ribbon I found at The Emporium.
I created this one for a bird cage in Khloe's room. I LOVE it!
I moved the birdcage from another spot on the shelf to the center because I love how the tag brought it to life. This is such an easy project to make yourself. I'll help anyone:)

After re-doing my kitchen decor, I wanted something new for my table centerpiece. As I am all about trays right now, I put together this little number this week. I found everything at TaiPan. The tray was $4. It had an ugly screened image of a fish on the bottom, so I just lined the tray with burlap. (Try to look past something you don't like and think of a way to fix it.) The pitchers were $5, $3, $2, and I love them used as a group. The book was $7, finial was $7, bottle $5, and the little print was $3. I loved the bright pink tulips for $6, as it was just the pop of color I was looking for. Trays don't have to be expensive and can add a great touch to any room! TaiPan has great items right now for under $10.

I love Pinterest and found a cute idea for a board here. I wanted a place in my office where I could pin fabric swatches, magazine pages, design ideas, etc. This was the perfect project. I bought a package of cork tiles from Hobby Lobby. They were $9.99, but I used my 40% off coupon. Then I bought a piece of foam backed board to attach them to. To begin, I taped off my design. I would have liked it better if I would have taped the center of the middle square. Then I painted the exposed cork. Since I didn't love the center painted, I simply flipped the tiles around to make a chevron design.
Here's the finished product. I hot glued picture hangers to the back to attach to the wall. I love it and the inspiration it gives me when I swivel around in my desk chair!

So I saw this in the Thanksgiving Point mailer yesterday and fell in love with it. Armed with the picture, I headed to Hobby Lobby to get materials to recreate it!
The flower was on clearance for $2. I paired it with a $.37 paper mache egg. I bought two different colors of burlap (1/3 yard for $1.33). I layered the greenish burlap in a mound gluing the layers. Then I did layers of book pages and glued on the flower and egg.
Then I glued two layers of grosgrain ribbon bows on the cream burlap and tied a piece of jute around it. On the back, I put a little bundle of sticks ($4 for the large bundle from Hobby Lobby) and tied it with the jute.
The jeweled letter B was on clearance for $2. I stuck it in the middle and glued it on the back to the burlap. Then I simply tied the whole thing with the jute to the bird cage. I love it. It was super easy and was inexpensive. TaiPan has cheap birdcages right now.
I love how it took my birdcage from boring to "blingtastic!"
