Have & Make: Candy-Filled Linen Bunnies

If you aren’t using your linen napkins for Easter dinner, you can repurpose them as little bunnies full of candy.  I’d say ‘for the little ones’ but I ate half of the candy while making these so they’re really for everyone.

It might take a bit of practice, but after one or two you’ll get the hang of how to make the little guys nice and round.  The key is to get the candy all in the middle so that the bottom of the bunny ends up with a balanced bum.  I used a little scotch tape and a cotton ball to make a little poof of a tail as well.

You don’t have to use just white napkins either.  This would be fun with brightly colored napkins, or you could buy a cheap package and let the kiddos draw bunny faces on them. So cute and new compared to the standard plastic eggs! Do you think this is something you’ll try?

Have a WONDERFUL Thursday!

House Envy: Four Story Vintage in Ohio

I had a friend clue me in on this beautiful four story house here in our piece of the country.  It’s owned by Monique and Keith Keegan who live in nearby Granville, Ohio.  The home is such a nice mixture of vintage, industrial, and modern; filled to the brim with collectible pieces, antiques, and memorabilia.

I love trying to look past the big picture and focus on the individual pieces and how beautifully worn they are.  There is a lot to take in!

I just love soaking in all of the various color, texture, and surfaces.   What’s more is that they also own a beautiful shop, Enjoy Co, which sells some of the amazing things that you see in the home.

It feels comfortable and inviting – what do you think?  Love it, or no?

Spring's Sweet Scents

Before we left for Mexico, we had some friends over for a Friday night dinner which was simple and totally focused on the food.

I still wanted a centerpiece for the dining table so I did a little project (if you can call it a project) that I had pinned a while back.  The idea was originally from this beautiful french inspired wedding on bash, please and I found that it was just perfect for my purposes.  Simple, sweet, and just the right touch of spring.

Maybe next time I’ll mix some rosemary and mint… ummmm.

Have you done anything you pinned lately?

Have a SWEET Tuesday!

Light, Bright, and Airy Dining Room Update

With the new dining room chairs and the art update, I wanted to show you guys the progress of the dining room as a whole. Another major change I made was swapping out the darker, patterned curtains for something airy and white. Although they pool onto the floor, the gauzy texture and tab top design keeps them from looking too formal.

There are still a few things I’d like to do – mainly some additional art and accessories, but I really love the direction that it is moving.

Light, springy, and serene!

I hope your Monday’s bright!
