Etsy love: Spring Dream

April is here! Considering my rampant love for everything floral, Spring is totally my season! Here’s some lovely spring things I’ve found while perusing etsy lately:

This sweet painting is the prettiest /// I need vintage botanical prints everywhere please!

Love these pretty temporary tattoos. (Brilliant for testing out placement!)

Valentine Mantle

Time for another holiday mantle! This one was done a bit under the wire, but Valentine’s in my favorite holiday so it’ll definitely stay up at least through March.IMG_0060

I had gold up everywhere from New Years Eve, and figured I could keep a little of the gold and add whatever spare pink toned paintings I had lying around. The big one in the center is my roommates. She left it when she moved out and I just think it’s too pretty to not display. The rest are mine, various valentine cards, and just some pretty little things.

I can’t wait for Friday!! Hope you all are having the loveliest month!

Heart Pinata

Alright, I know it’s not quite February but it’s close enough to start bombarding ya’ll with lots and lots of hearts right? I recently dressed the Story window for February/Valentines, and my statement creation was a heart pinata! Here’s some progress pics of how it was done:

I’m so happy with how it came out! Given enough time, cardboard, and tape…I think I could go pinata crazy! Hoping to squeeze in a few more (little) valentine’s day inspired pinatas soon!

Late Night Crafting

I wanted to share a little peek of some late night crafting. I am working on the upcoming Valentine’s window for Story and I’m so excited! I LOVE valentines day!! I think it’s the happiest! And if you’re one of those people who hates valentines, no worries, I love it enough for everyone! I’m hoping to make a big statement with this one! Bet you can’t guess what it is, right?
