Kitchen Main Wall

Hello World,

For Christmas, my boyfriend bought me this pretty mosaic wall hanging/ candle holder.  It inspired me to finally hang up all my pieces in one spot (the kitchen) instead of in random spots around my apartment.

The “all things are possible” little canvas is from Michael’s.  It cost me a whole penny!!!!

I found this owl at a thrift shop, it seems handmade.

It smells so lovely, its a rain-scented candle from Pier 1.

Super Easy Scarf Holder

I have been collecting quite a stash of scarves, and previously I had them just in a rubbermaid container in my closet.  I usually grabbed the ones on top, and the bottom scarves were being neglected.

I took some costume jewelry, and hung it on my wall, between 2 thumbtacks.  I then looped part of each scarf over the necklace.  Another way to do it could be to hang hemp string or light rope, and maybe even use clothes pins to hang them up.

My scarves now like a colorful wall hanging!

I love how colorful they all are!

My winter scarves don’t look as pretty, they are so bulky!

 I crocheted three of the scarves, and they are hanging behind my bedroom door.


I bought some more ornaments at Micheal’s.  They were on clearance, which is weird because Christmas is still 10 days away!

I followed this tutorial to make the marbleized ornaments.  They were a little difficult, the nail polish kept chunking up too fast, or it was goopy on the ornament.  I didn’t use name brand nail polish like the tutorial tough, I used Wet & Wild.

I then filled the ornaments with fake snow.

The ornament below was really simple to make.  (It’s actually still not dry in the picture.)  I took the top off of the ornament, and poured glitter and water-downed modge podge inside it.  I shook it until it was completely covered.
