I saw this great idea on Pinterest and was eager to give it a try. In my apartment, my roommates and I have an overwhelming amount of coffee mugs that take up multiple shelves so I was on the hunt for a fix to save space. We now have a lot more counter space and a cute coffee area.
This is the before, we needed some major organizational help.
I started from the top down, setting the new wall mug hangers first. I ordered them off of amazon.
The after! So much better.
What DIY projects are you getting into this weekend? Or share any links in the comments section of some of your DIY’s, I love getting ideas from other blogs and will link back 🙂
There’s nothing better than a good Summer night in the backyard and Julia’s family had the best Summer backyard. On our last night in Wyoming, we played around on the lawn, enjoyed a BBQ, and had some s’mores and moonshine by the firepit. Their backyard definitely provided some inspiration for my dream ranch I’ve been building in my mind. It was the perfect Summer night!
Love the porch swing!
About a year ago, my friend Lindsay dragged half of a broken tree to my doorstep because she knew I was on the lookout for good piece of branch for an art project. What a friend, I mean she stumbled up them gem on a walk and carried it to me! I didn’t have the end result in my mind at the time but I knew it needed to be big; it had to with a start like this one. I began by taking my favorite piece and spraying it gold. It sat like that for about a year until I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. After scooping up some yarn and strings of leather, I quickly put together a great piece of wall art.
(I tied together pieces of leather in order to hang the branch)
(I chose colors that tied in with what I am using in my apartment)

I really love the end result. It is so simple but adds a lot of color to our room. The teal is the same color as a desk that I have and the orange flows nicely with our duvet. There are somethings that you have to go out and make in order for it to be exactly what you need.

Who doesn’t love these conversation hearts?! Well we do and here’s a way to have some sweet treat offerings without looking too soft. We got these glittery skulls in a post Halloween splurge (don’t ask why, we have no method to our madness) and I was thinking, when else am I going to display this sassy table decor? Light bulb! Valentine’s Day. I think it’s the perfect combo of the devil and angel that usually sit on your shoulders tempting you, to eat the candy or not to eat the candy – that is the question.
I mean let’s be honest, these won’t make it to Valentine’s Day. We still have two weeks until then so make sure you grab a couple bags of the candy for back stock and make it the good kind (I prefer Brachs, the old school candies that some compare to tasting like chalk. The best chalk I’ve ever had).
I think we should be responsible for making the type on these candies and if we could, we would make one that says “We F$#&ing Heart You.” What would yours say?

New Orleans is filled with unique art, music, and signs! Some are handcrafted and some are just plain funny! It’s weird though, as I was shooting photos I got an eerie sense that I was being followed. I couldn’t quite pinpoint what was happening at the time but as I look back through my pictures- I think Ryan Gosling may have been hot on my trail. He has been trying to call me ever since this post but it couldn’t be him, could it?
(Are my easy deceiving me?! God, he’s a handsome devil)
(I mean you’d empty your pocket book too if your guide looked like this…)
