Honey & Rosemary Blackberry Jam

Honey & Rosemary Blackberry Jam

Growing up, I remember picking raspberries from our garden every summer so my mom could make raspberry jam.

With May Long Weekend  just around the corner, I thought it was a good time to put together a hostess gift for one of the outdoor parties we’ll be attending.

Create Your Own Seed Packets

Throughout summer, I deadhead most of my flowers to encourage re-blooming.

West Elm Inspired Drink Coasters

West Elm Inspired Drink Coasters_2

A few weeks ago I was looking at West Elm’s new market and came across some adorable wooden drink coasters. They reminded of the log slice ornaments I created for the One Item Project Challenge and, luckily, I happened to have some pieces of wood left over giving me the idea to create my own. Not […]
