Saturdays are great days for thinking about fun ideas and projects you would like to do. 

When it is cold, and rainy out it is even better to be in the house all cozy, and warm while ideas spin around in your head.

It is cold and rainy here in sunny California so I thought I would give you some fun ideas to dance around in your creative minds.

This first idea would be a really fun way to embellish cupcakes for your Easter table…….

There are no directions on how long or what temperature to heat them in the oven, but I think low and slow is the best policy, like you do for most fruit that you would like to dry. Who knew a pineapple would make such a pretty flower and the upside is it is edible too.

In the winter we all have our houses closed up and they can become a bit stale. Try this on your stove and your home will have a wonderful fresh, clean fragrance…….

A few sprigs of rosemary, lemon slices and a teaspoon of vanilla in a pot and let it simmer on the stove. This is a recipe that they use at William Sonoma Home stores, and we all love how that shop smells, Yum!!

If you can’t find a bed-skirt to fit your bed, or you don’t really like the look of a bed-skirt this next idea is for you…….

You can use what ever fabric you love and upholstery the bed-skirt. Staple gun and Velcro strips are the answer here!! This would be an easy and fast project for a Saturday!!

Spring flowers also bring along Spring weeds. How about a natural way to get rid of your unsightly weeds? Vinegar!! Who knew?

For all of you Ikea lovers, if you would like to embellish the simple look of some of their furniture pieces and elevate them a bit, try some of these…….


My Overlays…..

My Overlays is a company that makes these wonderful light weight wood overlays that can be applied to just about any surface.

So now you have some fancy fretwork, and legs to totally change the look of a simple Ikea piece.

Since Saturday is a great day to do lots of pinning, be sure and go to this website to read some tips on pinning…….

I will leave you with a little tip I discovered while pinning away the other day...

In order to give the proper credit when pinning from another website I discovered by copying the credit information, and then hitting pin-it the info will automatically come up in the description box. Who knew?!!

Have a wonderful weekend, doing projects or just thinking about doing projects like I am going to do!!

“Enjoy the Process!” Of:

Doing as little or as much
as you like during the
