a little | dainty beauty


Found via A Cup of Jo

I only recently became a lover of jewelry. A friend from work sells Premier Jewelry and I have purchased some pieces from her that I love, but lately I have felt some can seem a little bulky for lack of a better word. I love how this piece and others from Edor are toned down and so daintily beautiful.

a little | typography furniture


Found via hello lucky

I know I have expressed my love for typography before, but I LOVE this table. I want it. I need it. I have to have it. If only...

a little | decal love


This is why I LOVE blogs. I was doing dishes this morning when I noticed my boring flour and sugar canisters. I thought to myself, self, what could you do to those to spice them up a bit? And then as if How About Orange heard my thoughts she posted this. Plus I always love a free download. Thanks Just Something I Made.

a little | real life diy #2

In an attempt to see if things I see on other blogs are as cool in person as they are online I am trying them out. Experiment #1 was a success and I am happy to report so was experiment #2!!

Here is the inspiration post and here are my results: (Please excuse my wrinkled piece of fabric, just too lazy to iron.)


It was a hard decision deciding what to stencil onto my bag and my fabric. I was inspired by these pillows and the idea is I will turn the piece of fabric into a lovely pillow. I'll keep you posted. As for the bag, well, I coach a high school dance team and I thought this would be the perfect bag to keep all of my dance team 'stuff'. So of course I went with our school mascot. I did, at the last minute, decide to wrap the tail around to the back instead of trimming it off and I really like the effect.

This was such an easy project and it turned out so well. Here are the steps I took:
Step #1: Cut out design from freezer paper.
Step #2: Iron on freezer paper to fabric.
Step #3: Spray with spray paint.
Step #4: Remove freezer paper once spray paint is dry.

I am sure you can use fabric paint, but I found spray paint to be fast and easy.

As for my next diy...hmmm...any ideas?
