A Few of My Favorite Things.... Fall Florals

Posted by Honor on Friday, October 11, 2013, In : Decor Crafts 
   You would think that spring is the season for florals right? But nope. I feel that fall is where it's at. Of course flowers are great year round but as a crafter I feel that during this season you can really let your crafty flag fly high. Just think of all the extras you can add into the arrangements.... fall fruit, branches, pumpkins, fall foliage, sparkly sprigs, pheasant feathers... the list just goes on and on. So I thought I would share with you some seriously stunning fall flower eye...

Tools of the Trade: Cut Flower Care

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 












There was a blowout sale of the Easter flowers at my local Walmart. A dozen roses for $2 and spring mixes for $1. What a score right?! These flowers above are only the beginning of what looks like a florist exploded in my house. It's not everyday you can snatch up fresh flowers for a steal, so I went a little overboard.... spring has sprung right?

Here is a round up of my favorite tips and tricks for taking care of cut flowers and making them last.

*When picking flowers at local grocery store, ...

DIY Embellished Hair Comb: Parts Five and Six

Posted by Honor on Thursday, January 17, 2013, In : Crafter's Toolbox 


Sick of hair comb ideas yet? No? Good! Cuz here are two more beauties. Both equally simple and fab. If you haven't yet, make sure to check out parts one/two and three/four.

A recap on what I am doing here. At the beginning of the new year I was a bit bogged down reminiscing about sugar plums and faux snow frosted ornaments. In other words I was feeling a bit low because the NY signals the end of my favorite time of the year. My creative juices weren't flowing. They were more like syurp.

DIY Coffee Filter and Flower Lampshade

Posted by Honor on Thursday, December 27, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 

I know the pictures are a tad dark but I really wanted to try and convey the magical (and super feminine) feel of this lampshade. It came out so warm and well, pretty.
I picked up those vintage curtains a couple of weeks ago. Aren't those pretty too? Love them, love looking at them, but I am not so fond of the thing hanging in front of them. The fixture over our sink has never been right. It was just something I picked up at Lowe's one day when the hubs told me that his electrician friend was ...

DIY Paper Plate Flowers

Posted by Honor on Thursday, December 13, 2012, In : Party Decorations 

So we are in the middle of a room shuffle. My office is becoming the shared kids room and Lou's old room is becoming my office. This makes the most sense because my old office space is HUGE, just perfect for two little bodies to crawl around in and it seemed selfish of me to horde all that space for myself. So.... right now I am up to my eyeballs in boxes to donate, papers to file, clothes to sort ect ect ect. All the 'fun' stuff. Fun Fun Fun. So of course during nap time I neglected the orga...

Wax Paper Pressed Flowers

Posted by Honor on Thursday, March 15, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 

  How to Press Flowers with Wax Paper

   Get ready to have a flashback to elementary school with this craft tutorial. This is very similar to melted crayon wax paper crafts, but with a more grown up and 'springy' twist. Now go for a little walk through your yard and pick some interesting little flowers and leaves. The daintier the better, try to avoid bulky roses :) Enjoy!


What you will need: A roll of wax paper, tear off two large sheets. Fresh flowers and leaves (like I said earlier, dainty w...
