A tiny yellow bathroom! And I’m not describing the ‘before’, I’m describing the ‘after’. Check it out!
If you follow along on stories, you know I’ve been talking about the back house bathroom for a couple of months now. It’s one of those fun projects I’ve wanted to tackle from the get-go.
And today I’m sharing the yellow bathroom reveal! It’s so bright and cheery and a little bit off the beaten path of what I would normally do, which I actually kind of love. It’s nice to change things up with your style sometimes, right?
Click through for the before photos, all the afters, and everything I added (and subtracted) to get this tiny bathroom looking cute.
A fall wreath that actually looks modern and cool? I’m in!
I’ve shared plenty of DIY wreaths over the years, but usually they’re winter and holiday related. Last year, though, I made my first DIY fall wreath and now I’m in love. Especially because it means I get to play around with dried grasses and florals.
I foraged some pampas grass, broke out my beloved collection of dried palm leaves and tracked down some really pretty dried mushrooms (!!!).
All to make these simple, modern fall wreaths that are as far from grandma’s pinecone door wreath as I could get. Not trying to hate on grandma though. She can keep those pinecone wreaths up as long as she likes.

Before having a kid, one of my goals was no plastic toys. BUT once we had a kid, I realized that wasn’t very realistic. At least not for us.
So what we’ve done instead is limit plastic toys as much as possible. Most of our toys are made of wood or fabric and we have a handful of plastic toys as well, that we knew were things he would really love. Like his toy vacuum cleaner (bc he has always been obsessed with out real vacuum) and Duplos (which have been great for developing fine motor skills).
The vast majority of his toys are wooden though. And there are so many amazing wooden toys out there, for every age group. So, today, I put together a post focused on wooden toys for babies, toddlers, and kids.
When it comes to cool modern vases (and planters for that matter), I am completely obsessed with finding the *perfect* ones.
I mean…how else am I going to get my fill of flowers and plants without super cute vessels to put them in, right? And right now, I’m specifically on a vases kick because I’ve reached my quota on planters (and plants) I can have inside (and outside) the house at the moment.
So, today I’ve rounded up a whole bunch of cool modern vases for your pretty flowers to go in. And I literally want every.single.one.of.them. Someone save me from myself and buy them out from under me! Click through for all 16 of my current vase picks for every budget. The vases on the list start as low as $15 and half of them are under $50!
Ever wondered how to melt crayons into cool shapes? This crayon melting 101 tutorial will be right up your alley.
There’s one back to school project that I’m willing to bet almost all of us have either tried at some point or wanted to try: crayon melting! And why not, really?
DIY crayons are fun to make and anyone with kids has enough broken crayons laying around to tackle something like this. Haha. It’s a great way to reuse broken crayons too that you might be thinking about throwing out.
This tutorial will go through all the basics of how to melt crayons (with two different microwave techniques). It started out as crayon melting 101. But to make things a little more interesting, I created different shapes, like gems, domes, and planets to make them feel a little more special and unique.
So, if you want to learn how to make your own DIY crayons, like these, or you’re just curious about the crayon melting process, click through for the tutorial. Read More →
