i love this mixed glass centerpiece. seems like i'm always falling in love with vintage glassware, but can never figure out what to do with them! this is also an easy breezy way of showing off your greens- bringing little bits of your garden inside!
i've been re-covering a few chairs lately, and i love the idea of using an old sweater to do so! in fact, i just found one that our dear doggie chewed a whole in. thanks, toaster, for making me materials for this project!
i'm sure you've heard about the dangers plastics can lead to. if you heat food up in plastic containers, put hot food in them for storage, or drink from plastic water bottles that have gotten hot in your car- they can leach toxic carcinogenic chemicals into your system. so, i switched to all glass containers a while back. ikea offers affordable storage containers, and i often thrift for glass finds. an easy and quite affordable way to cut your exposure to toxins!
this totally diy cork trivet is so cute, isn't it? what a great way to put those corks to use..
a scarf quilt- i love this idea! don't you have some old scarves or maybe one from your aunt you wouldn't be caught dead in? combining them in this quick quilt makes for a cozy, scrappy kind of look.
combining the wax from you're almost burnt out candles can give them a little extra life. as long as the candles aren't in anything metal, you can just pop them in your microwave, melt the was, remove the old wick, and pour into a new container. you can find brand new wicks at your local craft store and it's simple to hot glue one into the bottom of a container. this way, you won't have to throw away all those almost-empty candles!
