Daily Inspiration – Penguins Ornaments DIY

Are you fully recovered from your Thanksgiving food coma? I finally am. I was looking forward to “black Friday”, not only for the leftovers but for our traditional putting up of our Christmas tree HA! Last year I created these cute little guys, I wanted to make some new ones for this year. I guess I’ve been making ornaments every year so I had to continue the tradition. Not sure how I ended up on a penguin, but I do love it. To make them, I simply played around with different shapes of felt and fabric. I sewed them by hand and stuffed them with some cotton balls. I used some yarn for the string and a hot glue gun for their little eyes. Pretty simple. Are you making ornaments this year too? Please do tell! Merry Christmas!

Daily Inspiration – Chelsea Market

While in NY a few weeks back I visited this cute market in Manhattan. It’s one of my friends favorite places so I was super excited to go. It did not disappoint, everything was great. The stores, the food, the décor, everything! I will share my favorite spot tomorrow. Have you been to the Chelsea market? I cannot wait to go back!

Daily Inspiration – Fall Garland DIY

I cannot believe Fall officially started. I decided to make a little something Saturday morning with some scraps of felt I had laying around to kick off the season. I started with an idea in my head but not sure what I was going to do. I do feel a little silly making it a DIY but since it might inspire someone out there why not share it? I must confess, it has yet to go up in our house since I’m still gathering the rest of the décor but making this got me started. All I did was cut some leaves out of a few different colors of felt and hand stitch them with pretty twine. I told you it was easy!. Here is to the beginning of a new season!

Daily Inspiration – RotdCreations

While at the Downtown Flea this weekend I ran into the most cutest succulents arrangements I’ve ever seen. Obviously, since going to the desert my attraction for them has gotten bigger. These lovely handmade planters are something else. This guy knows what he’s doing. Wish we would’ve taken one home. Check out some of his great work on his Etsy shop RotdCreations. I’m so happy I found their etsy shop!

Daily Inspiration – Succulents fever!

Last week I finally got some succulents for our house. If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know the desert really got to me. Getting these maybe helps keep those memories alive. Either way, I got a handful of succulents and a pair of cacti, plus a few cheap clay pots and made them pretty with some acrylic paint. Nothing big, but simple enough to make me smile wide every time I look out our kitchen window. I brought some for my desk at work and you would be surprised how having these on my desk helps me relax. I know I’m being a total cheese ball but I’m in love with them! HA, do you have succulents or a cactus in your house?

Daily Inspiration – Yellow!

That awkward moment when you realize you have quite the amount of yellow things around your house. I guess I like the color. HAHA Take a look around your place and share what color do you see the most? It was quite the nice surprise to me.  I guess yellow is a happy color after all.

Daily Inspiration – For Like Ever!

This awesome poster by Sugar Rural has been on my radar for quite some time now. It comes in different colors, so it’s hard to pick just one. The only big problem, Taylor Swift ruined the word “ever” for me.
