First, my Lilly Pulitzer stationery from Seersucker Scrapper’s giveaway arrived today! It’s super cute and I’m so excited that I won! Her blog is absolutely fabulous...if you’re not already a follower you must check it out!
I'm in the process of redecorating our bedroom and I've been looking for some new wall art. I haven't been able to find anything I liked so I decided to create something. I drew the outline for the picture with pen and then cut out pieces of tissue paper for the coloring. It still needs to be matted, but I haven't gotten to it yet so I put it up anyways...
My inspiration came from this Marimekko pattern I found online.
If you follow me on twitter you may have seen that I was also decoupaging lampshades earlier. They go on the lamps on our nightstands. They were plain white, but I wanted something that would go more with the vintage feel of our bedding. (I'll post an actual picture of our bedding once I'm finished with it. I still need to find standard shams that coordinate with the euro ones and I think I'm going to make a throw pillow...)

Here's the end result of my decoupaged lampshades...
Being a serious organizing junkie...I love spice racks! All the little matching bottles remind me of an old apothecary shop (not that I actually have any idea what an apothecary shop would look like). Although we have a spice rack (that we got off our wedding registry) I still have a cabinet full of other spices that I use regularly too.

I wanted to find a fun way to display them and I found a great template on marthastewart.com (you know how I love her website!) I bought little spice bottles at World Market for .99 a piece and made them today. Here’s how they turned out!
(I guess I'll have the change out the cake stand after St. Patrick's Day...)
I also really want an AeroGarden! Does anyone have one or know if they are actually any good?
