Hey lovelies,
I’m sure you just looked at that title like, “What in the world is she talking about?” but, I am here to tell you about how I made my pumpkin décor look really amazing this fall, in a really easy way!

         Supplies Needed:

  • Pumpkin ~ real or fake, it doesn’t matter. (I used a fake one only because I can reuse it for seasons to come & they were 50% off at my local Jo-Ann’s craft store).
  • Glitter (orange, silver or gold tones)
  • Glue gun
  • Newspaper or other paper to cover your workspace with
First, glue a circle of any size onto the pumpkin to get a general outline.
Then, just fill in the circle with hot glue & pour the glitter over the dots.
This is definitely a super easy, simple thing to do, just to add a little glam to your pumpkins this Harvest season! The best part of it is, I had some new décor in under twenty minutes!
Hope this adds a little cheer to your house like it did mine!
Much love,
Olivia

Hello there lovelies!
When I say “topknot”, you’re probably thinking of the ever popular, hipster-advocated topknot bun. Well, when I say “topknot” go put a knot in your favorite bandana. Take it from someone who wears a bandana probably 6/7 days of the week. A little knot can go a long way! Just try it; although there are many ways to wear a bandana, this is the easiest and most effective way to just add a little perkiness to the everyday attire! Have a great day!
Much love,
Olivia

hello lovelies! I’m here today with a fun DIY that I hope you’ll really enjoy! I recently saw something like this selling for $18 at a high-end boutique, & although I know it’s cute, I also know it’s not worth that much! So, I decided to try my hand at duplicating it, and I’m quite pleased with the results! This project cost me $1.75 total, so it felt amazing saving so much money! I really hope you like this; if you make it, let me know or send me a picture so I can see how it went for you!
Much love,
Olivia

Oh goodness gracious! After pinning this recipe to my “Yummy Foods” Pinterest board, I decided it was time to give it a try. And, wow, was that a good decision! These quesadillas were extremely delicious! So, I thought I would give you all the recipe to hopefully enjoy as much as I did! It’s so so easy, too!

Much love,
Olivia

  • 1 cup handfuls kasseri or mozzarella, shredded
Directions
  1. Mix the spinach, herbs, green onions and feta in a bowl.
  2. Melt a touch of butter in a pan.

Hello all you lovelies! Welcome to the easiest DIY of your life, my friends! I have been looking for the supplies for a long time now to do this, but if you stay patient to look for some cheap-o supplies, it definitely pays off big time! So… all you need is…

  • Scrabble letters spelling out your choice of words. I chose “L-A-U-N-D-R-Y” but other choices could be words like “CLEAN” or “CLOTHES” or “FAVORITE” (for a favorite dress or top to be displayed on by chance…)
  • A vintage hanger with a wooden part wide enough for the letters.
  • A hot glue gun.
  1. This is so simple, you can probably guess just how to do it, but, I’ll tell you just in case!
  2. Heat up that hot glue gun ASAP & glue your letters to the hanger. [I attached mine in a bit of a haphazard way, because I like the way it looks much better than if I had attached them at perfect spacing and angles!]

That’s all folks, but I ADORE the result! I bought the Scrabble tiles inn a historic district in Iowa last summer when I was on vacation (check out the Amana Handcrafted Colonies HERE, because it is just too quaint!!!). Then, I just found the hanger at the Gypsy Caravan flea market that I talked about here. So, between the Scrabble letters & the hanger, I do believe this project cost me around $1.75! So expensive, right?! Hahaha, well I am a firm believer in bargaining away whenever it is appropriate, so if we ever go thrifting together, be prepared for me to put on my bargaining shoes! I hope you enjoyed this & hopefully you think the result is as adorable as I thought it was! Have a beautiful day!

Much love,
Olivia
