Coconut Macaroon or Knock Off Almond Joy

  I made some delicious coconut macaroons after watching Carla Hall make some on The Chew.  They are really simple and delicious! I used this Organic UnSweetened Coconut.  I found it at my local Super Target.  I wanted to use unsweetened coconut to cut down on the sugar a little bit. The coconut was a […]

Dipped Mercury Glass Mason Jars DIY

  Do you know what happens when you are addicted to Pinterest?  You spray paint stuff.  Paint all the glass!! Ball was kind enough to come out with two nostalgic glass colors, green and blue!  But that is fun enough, so I decided to try my hand at the Mercury Glass craze!  DO NOT paint […]

Happy Easter!

Just a friendly little reminder to look for holiday decor at your local thrift store.  All of those unused plastic eggs have to go somewhere right?  Avoid over-paying though, remember that you can pick up a bag at the dollar store. I love the look of these eggs but they can be pretty expensive.  I collect […]

Valentine’s Day

  Nothin’ says loving like coming to bed dressed like a doll with a bonnet on your head.  I picked up these vintage baby doll pajamas from Goodwill the other day on a little shopping excursion with my favorite intern.    I had visions of Betty Draper ala Mad Men dancing in my head. Then […]

I need some Spring already.

Since I can’t take this gray weather for one more minute, I thought I would trick myself into believing that Spring is right around the corner.  I live in Colorado so basically we don’t have Spring until mid May if we are lucky. Look in the back of your grocery store for the marked down […]

You know…The Doily Dilemma

So here’s my thing with doilies.  I don’t really like them.  Case in point, every time we have some sort of event at my house my mother-in-law says, “Do you have any doilies? I think it makes things look nicer.” Then I say, “No, I don’t really like doilies.” Now fast forward to the next […]
