Cork Lettering

I love wine. I love wine a lot. And being a wine aficionado, I end up with a lot of corks, that I’ve been saving up for some sort of project to stand out to me. And it did! I decided to make a cork-covered letter as a little decor piece for my wedding. It was really simple, and like I said, I had a lot of corks…L
I started out with a wooden letter “L” since that will be my new initial. You can get these at any craft store, or be like me and skip that step by ordering right from Amazon. And then you simple glue the corks on end until you cover it all up! 20140626-141212-51132157.jpg Ta-da! There you have it! I used Elmer’s Craft Bond tacky glue, and it seems to be holding strong. I think it’ll add a nice little something to the decor.

Happy corking!

Rub-a-dub-dub…

shower-curtain_ps…excuse the bathroom pic. But I got this new shower curtain and I’m stoked about it! I’ve basically been on a mission to get my apartment decorated how I want it before the holidays. So, the countdown is on. Now I just need to pick new floor mats…and towels…and possibly paint…

Darn inspiration! Oh well, I love it.

Gourd vs Squash

Fall is here! In South Florida, that really just means the mornings drop from 88 to 78, and it takes 20 minutes to start sweating instead of 5. But hey, take what you can get. Actually, the mornings have been quite lovely. If you’ve lived here long enough, you can smell fall in the air!

Along with fall comes my favorite part; fall decorating! Ok, actually it’s fall cooking – soups, stews, breads, mmm…but decorating is a close second. I love all the little pumpkins and gourds that start showing up everywhere. So, here’s a little chart I came across to help keep them straight.

Many more fall posts and projects to come…
