A Little Birdie Told Me

Like affordable fashion, I am a sucker for affordable home decor-well any bargain really. I have been inspired by Spring. I don't consider myself a crafty individual, but some girls were getting together to make some spring door wreaths and I thought I'd stop by and try my hand at a new craft. On my little nature walk over to my friends house I found a few twigs on the ground that I tried to experiment with. Here are the results-I wasn't sure about the bedazzled bird, but I was talked into it by the girls:

(Please forgive my photography-I am working on it. Also the wreath looks a little fall-ish, but I still liked the results.)

All it takes is an affordable wreath of your liking from any craft store, felt, yarn (I went with this speckled yarn to give it a woodsy look), and whatever decorations inspire you. You can't go wrong. If you're interested in knowing how to make these roses-let me know and I'll post about them. If any of you get up the courage to make a spring wreath, e-mail me the photos on your door @ I would love to post them!

Sometimes You Gotta Splurge

So it's tax return season and though we probably are still in the hole somehow, it feels as though we get "free" money. What I want to know is what you splurge on? We try and be frugal throughout the year, but do you have those certain items you just have to have even though you know it's probably too much? Here are a couple of items that I LOVE and though there are less expensive versions out there, I just have to have it. So tell me, with your tax return money in hand-what are you going to stock up on?

Burt's Bees. I probably buy 5 to 10 of these a year. My husband always gets mad when I lose them, but nothing works or feels the same.

I don't know what kind of magical concoction are in these things, but something about the smell makes it worth the price. I don't care where you search, you won't find a better scent.

It could be the packaging, the marketing, but really I think it's the quality. I try and hold out as long as possible without it, but it's something you just gotta have.

All right that's me, now share your "must haves" that are worth your tax return dollars...or regular dollars. We all like new and excited things to buy so start sharing!
