no priss here...

Usually doilies are thought of as pretty prim and proper but these "doileez" from Modern Twist are anything but. Modern Twist is certainly true to their name. What a lovely twist on a vintage piece.

felt this...

My drinking glasses always stick to the coasters that we currently own and so I was very excited when I saw these diy coasters from Design Sponge. Cute, not sticky, and totally able to make myself!

cupcake cuteness...

I spotted these terribly cute cupcakes on How About Orange. Plop these cuties in a vase and use them as your centerpiece for your next party!

The recipe is from Bakerella. She used the recipe for a tip on Nickelodeon's, which donates money to Feed the Children's Kid's School Basics Program every time a tip is submitted.

etsy baubles...

I happened upon the etsy shop A Little Luster today and fell in love with oh so many things. In particular, the open oval sterling silver necklace and the lemon jade earrings shown above.

being clean never smelled so good...

Soap on the Go! A fantastic idea that is not only cute but very affordable. Retailing for $3.75 at LoveLeeSoaps' etsy store, it's too good to pass up!

describe your style...

I took a decorating style quiz this afternoon and I have to say I am more than a bit surprised. I never would describe my style in any way "country." Maybe over in the UK (home of this lovely little quiz) it means something different? At any rate, I am "country 'n' modern." Humph.

Above are some of the samples that I chose. What do you think? My results were that my "home combines the best of old and new, rural and metropolitan, to prove you really can have it all!"

Take the My Deco test yourself
