As some of you know, Saturday was my oldest son's birthday. I've always baked a cake (or pie, when requested) of their choosing for their special day. This year, instead of what has become the tradition of home made cheesecake, he requested, "vanilla layer cake with vanilla buttercream icing". Simple, right? Sure....and boring so I decided to add some dark chocolate lace decorations as a surprise.

Today, I'm going to show you how to create non-slip yarn or fabric covered wire hangers. They're beautiful, nearly free, and a necessity in my home. Why, you ask? Have you ever hung up a sleeveless dress or blouse only to find it on the floor of the closet the next time you were going to wear it?

I've been a little quiet lately here on the blog. Part of that is because my full time job has been crazy busy as our company is preparing to migrate to a new computer system and my department is involved. I'll be spending a week in Atlanta for training in the beginning of May and am hoping to do a little farmhouse shopping while I'm there as well.

I can't believe that it's Easter! It snuck up on me this year! So much so that I honestly had no idea how I was going to decorate my Easter table until four days ago. This year, my Easter table decorating is pastel colored...and edible!

Today I'd like to show you a new way to use an old technique to brighten up painted furniture. I used printed paper napkins as a part of the makeover for this customer piece. The flowers and butterflies on the Miss Mustard Seed milk paint table above are paper napkins which have been decoupaged onto the piece using Mod Podge.
