This is a pottery barn hack for the blue Cobalt stained glass vases. The pottery barn version is $129! But this vase cost me less than $2.00 because I used an apple juice bottle I already had. This stained glass method can also be done with Mason jars or any vase or jar of your choice.To make the stain lighter, just add a little water to the mod podge before mixing.
I love Halloween! Not the scary haunted houses or movies, because I'm a big chicken with a huge imagination- which is not a good combo. But the dressing up, fun parties, decorations and of course the candy!! And since we don't want to scare the children around here ;) I stick to more fun decorations at our house for Halloween. So this year I made these cute and easy mummy mason jar guys to decorate our foyer table with. They are adorable, and so easy to make it's scary!!

I am going to be honest with you, crafting with old books gives me a momentary attack of anxiety. Having been a rather passionate English major, I cringe at even the sound of those pages being torn. Ugh! But, in the end I love to give old books that will in no way find a home, a new lease on life. And what better way than decorating an English teacher’s classroom? I went for an old, out-of-date dictionary that could not only decorate the room, but maybe even teach the kiddos some new words! Zest it UpPhoto Cred: Anya McInroy
Hey y'all...we hope that you had a wonderful, long weekend. We are so glad that we had the opportunity to relax at the lake. We ate good food, shared a few special bevs, went on some wild boat rides and most importantly shared a great weekend together.
Jennifer and I even had a little bit of time to create a couple of fall projects. As you know, this is our favorite season. Can we sing out a giant "Woop Woop" as today is the day Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte? Yes, we are those people!
Now, back to business...Being that we were together it was so fun to plan out our crafts, decor and recipes for Fall. Hold onto your hats because we have a lot of fun things in store for y'all!...

When I moved into this house, it needed to be totally repainted. I took that as an opportunity to update my decor, but I didn't want to buy all new things. I had pored over countless decorating magazines and websites, and knew that I had to choose colors that I loved. However, I didn't want to go crazy with my paint and other finishes, or get wildly colored furniture that I could tire of before it wore out. I decided to stick to basics (bland) for the furniture and main fabrics, like my drapes and bedding, and add pops of color with small things, like pillows, vases, pictures, etc.(I really would like to paint my whole house in violets, blues, and shades of pink and red, but was afraid of how it would turn out!)Since I loved the colors in my bedroom rug and pictures that I put above the couch, I used those for inspiration.
