Instead of bringing something home from our travels, we're thinking that a simple, stunning Parisian inspired DIY candle is just what the doctor ordered. All designed by our sweet sweet friend and talented...

DIY Painted Latte Bowls

I'm sure by now we've all gotten to know and love the latte bowl. Not only do they make a meal taste that much better (they really do, I'm sure of it!), they also act as double duty when you desperately need that extra large dose of caffeine. The only pitfall? It seems that everyone and their neighbour has a cupboard full of them. Luckily we've come up with a solution. Photographed by our beloved White Loft Studio, this easy-peasy DIY...

DIY Plaster Candlesticks

First and foremost, a word of thanks. To all of the men and women who work so hard for our country and who deserve far more than a single day of celebration.

So before we dive into today's beautiful weddings, we have one more bit of inspiration from yesterday's full day of gorgeousness. Celebrating a table set for Thanksgiving and the one day we use to take a pause from life's chaos.

DIY Rope Vases

We're always looking for ways to gussy up simple, household items. And of the projects that we seem to tackle time to time again, it seems like vases seem to always be at the top of our list.

Tackle one or tackle all, you're definitely going to be proud of your...
