Colorful Spring Pinwheel Decorations

Pinwheel, pinwheel, spinning around. Look at my Pinwheel and see what I've found. Pinwheel, pinwheel, where have you been? I’m kind of obsessed with pinwheels.  There is just something about those little spinning things that reminds me of spring and childhood. They remind me of carefree, playful afternoons while a warm breeze gently blows all around.  I think they are such a whimsical and fun way to add a little flair to any occasion including your home decor.

DIY Hand Painted Pendant Necklaces

The other day the temperatures in Texas started to warm up and now I'm craving all things spring.  I am ready to break out the flip flops and the brightly colored clothes.  But, if I'm being completely honest my wardrobe lacks a lot of color (I own a lot of black.) Which is why I decided to add a pop of color with some new DIY bright colored hand painted pendant necklaces . I've been working with DecoArt for a few years and one of the the things I love about working with … [Continue reading...]

Mango Strawberry Sparkling Lemonade

“This post has been sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company. All thoughts and opinions are my own.” A few years ago I made a goal to drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water a day. To be honest, I struggled in the beginning. I even created my own DIY motivational water bottle to help me reach my goal. After a while the habit became a lifestyle change and it was no longer a struggle to gulp down those glasses of water. But, every now and then I crave something with a little something extra and … [Continue reading...]
