Patriotic Flag Swag Bunting {No-Sew}

Fourth of July CraftsI'm a little passionate about the Red, White, and Blue...I ♥ the USA. I have wanted flag swag buntings forever. The problem ~ I didn't want just one...I wanted like 10 {and at $20+ a piece they have never seemed to make it into my budget} With our deck finally completed, I knew I had to find a way to drape these beauties across the back for an upcoming party! No Sew, Inexpensive Fabrics, and about 20 minutes makes these cuties as simple as can be. Begin with three pieces of fabric; any shade of red, white and Continue reading

Painted Cabana Striped Pillows {Incredibly Easy ~ No Sew}

Painted Cabana Striped Pillows {Incredibly Easy ~ No Sew}

I've been eyeing up a few pillows for my front porch rocker ever since the warm weather decided to appear and stick around. I've seen many that I have loved but I can't seem to see spending anywhere from $30-$90 for a set of three pillows, especially when they most likely will need to be replaced again next year. I decided to nail down a few designs that I liked and make my own. I have to say that these have to be the easiest pillows I have ever made {not to mention the most inexpensive}. No Sew Cabana Striped Pillows Materials Continue reading

Lawry’s Review and a Giveaway

Along with warmer weather and outdoor activities comes outdoor cooking and grilling in our home. We tend to stick to grilling the same meats over and over. {I admit, I love grilling but do become quickly board as it seems we are eating the same thing over and over} I found an easy way to make meals more flavorful and exciting is simply using marinades. They can change the same old chicken into a completely new meal night after night. LAWRY’S® signature marinades are made with real fruit juice—instant inspiration for meat, poultry, fish and Continue reading
