Color-Dusted Wheat

This is very simple.  I bundled & wrapped mine tightly with thin twine.  Then lightly misted the top with spray paint until I achieved this airy look.  I used this spray paint {found at Micheal's}, but any spray paint should work.

A Bookcase for Cowgirl June

Ryan built this fabulous bookcase for our little June Taylor.  What would I do without this man & his talent/skill?
A horseshoe for our little "Rodeo Queen"
The backing is tin from an old barn {painted a pretty turquoise}.
I glazed the bright pink sides {& the horseshoe detail} with a shimmery-champagne craft paint.
{& her sparkly little name that hangs above her crib.} 

Ryan is taking custom bookcase orders here on Etsy :)

A Spring Centerpiece

Here is the centerpiece I put together just on time for Easter, but neutral enough to keep on the table for the remainder of spring.  I used various mason jars {clearly a decorative staple in my home}, a mason jar vase, and inexpensive fillers such as; moss, feathers, burlap, real egg shells {without the egg yolks/whites...poke a hole on the top of the egg & a larger hole on the bottom, blow the contents of the egg out of the larger hole,'s frustrating, so if you don't have the time or patience, I'd just buy faux-eggs if you can still find them.}

I found the feathers at Micheal's: white craft feathers & guinea hen feathers.

Happy Spring :)
