Moving to the 1891 Avenues Cottage
If you had told me last year at this time that in a year we would live in a completely different city and home, I wouldn’t have believed it. Moving to the #1891AvenuesCottage has been a whirlwind and it’s a dream come true! We are just starting on remodeling but in my mind I can see the end result and I CAN’T WAIT!!

Popsicle Stick Snowflake Wreath
In January I shared how to make this inexpensive and easy snowflake wreath. I created a winter porch around this snowflake theme. I loved how it broke up the winter monotony with a fun theme! Tatertots and Jello Favorite Projects of 2019!
Conversation Heart Wreaths
Over the years I have loved Valentine’s Day more and more, especially after I met my sweet husband. These heart wreaths use scrapbook paper and a heart is hung in the middle that seems to be floating. I added words like you see on conversation hearts.
Be Mine Valentine’s Day Mantel
I love decorating my mantel for different holidays. This BE MINE mantel was fun to create with DIY signs that use metal letters and LOTS of hearts!
Be Mine Valentine’s Day Porch
I also created a BE MINE porch with lots of DIY elements. DIY galvanized heart sign, heart burlap and felt pillows, BE MINE sign and cute heart garland with elements from the dollar store.
Anthropologie-Inspired Painted Birdhouses
In Spring 2019 I painted white houses with flowers, inspired by some I had spied on Anthropologie’s site. I love the way they looked with my flower paintings. Tatertots and Jello Favorite Projects of 2019!
DIY Playhouse of a Cardboard Box
In the spring I created a whimsical pom pom playhouse out of a box. The kids thought it was fun and our neighbor’s cute son who we babysat often loved it!
Copycat Panera Spinach and Artichoke Egg Souffles
One of the most popular recipes were my mom’s Copycat Spinach and Egg Souffles, inspired by Paneras version. I have to say, these are better! I also created a coordinating Panera-inspired Jalapeno Egg Souffle recipe that is so good and slightly spicy.
Upcycled Egg Carton Spring Centerpiece
I love upcycling things and creating new uses for them. In the spring I upcycled egg cartons and turned them into a pretty wreath centerpiece.
Summer Flower Market Mantel
In the summer I made over the mantel with an enamel seed sign, stenciled crates and LOTS of flowers.
DIY Limoncello Sugar Scrub Gift Idea

Summer Metal Farmhouse Wreath
In the summer I sed some of the paper from my Pebbles line and created a cute farmhouse wreath.
Neutral Farmhouse Fourth of July Mantel and Decor
In the summer I went out of my normal color and create a neutral farmhouse-style mantel with DIY wreath, sign and neutral elements. I have to say it felt very soothing.
Picnic Neighbor and Friend Gift Idea
Another fun gift idea, this one with a picnic element. I used little baskets and included a treat and a succulent. I have the free gift tags on the site.
Summer Adventure Eating Nook
In the summer we celebrated with lots of adventures and I created a banner using my Pebbles Chasing Adventure line to add some color and reminder of always be adventurous.
Patriotic Fourth of July Porch
Our Daybreak home was the perfect backdrop for a patriotic porch. I created a DIY farmhouse wreath, giant flag sign, fabric bunting and pillow covers. Tatertots and Jello Favorite Projects of 2019!
