My Secret Home Decor Crushes

Pampas Grass or Plumes or whatever you call them are super trendy right now and I love the added flair that they give to this Boho Chic inspired room! Plus Velvet furniture is always a good thing… (I found us some of that grass stuff HERE)

Speaking of velvet… I love a good velvet tufted headboard; in fact, mine is velvet tufted! This chunky knit throw and sweet pink flower arrangement caught my attention and made me want to share this one with you for inspiration! However, that rug is the real showstopper! If you love it as much as I do HERE is my affiliate link to grab one for yourself!

My Secret Crafty Crushes

This has to be one of the prettiest ideas for a Valentine’s Pillow, like… ever! I’m in love with this combination my friend Leslie did with painting and a technique called free style stitching! Check it out on her blog My 100 Year Old Home.

This crush was easy to spot because it was so colorful and bright! Fun idea to use my Paint Pour technique on some cute Vans tennis shoes! They look easy enough, right?

Foodie Crush of the Week

My teenage daughter is constantly surprising me. Most recently, she decided to become a “vegetarian”. Not like the real deal, just no meat. This Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe may be just the perfect thing!
