By Season Hurd |

Sorry it’s been awhile folks. I’m way behind on so many things. So here’s a couple weeks of links. Believe me, I had to catch up on all these blogs so I had it worse than you. Enjoy. ;)


  1. Simple brilliance – decorate a tin can with paper. – Luna and ChloeDIY:
  2. I’m not normally a fan of bunting (overdone) but this cake bunting made of postage stamps is an exception. The best part is that anyone can make this. – Brides
  3. Don’t want to commit to a fingerprint tree for fear of it getting messed up? Try punch-out leaves instead. – I Do It Yourself
  4. DIY lace vases for floating candles. This was kinda “meh” on this until I saw how amazing they look when the floating candle ends up right in line with the lace. *swoon* – Weddingbee
