Mason Jar DIY

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Today I want to share with you the art of upcycling. For those of you who don't know what upcycling is, it is when you take an item and repurpose it into something else rather than getting rid of it or throwing it away. Check out these gorgeous and practical ways to transform a mason jar. These can also be done with empty spaghetti sauce jars, as well!

What other ways have you seen a mason jar re-purposed?

A Touch of Black

For my first real post, I want to share with you a design philosophy that I have completely embraced in my home. The quote above is from Jan Showers who is a brilliant interior designer. She is responsible for creating some absolutely gorgeous and beautiful spaces. To say I love to use the color black in my home is an understatement. It is more accurate to say, I am OBSESSED with using black to decorate. I know it is nontraditional and a little crazy sounding, but I promise these inspiration pictures will change your mind.

How fabulous do these rooms look?
