    Lucky Shamrock Pancakes

    While St. Patricks Day has come and gone, I still wanted to share with you a little something fun, quick and easy you could do with your children on this lucky day. We are Irish and proudly celebrate this holiday. For starters, grab some pancake mix. I like to use the kind that you only have to add water too. I’m all about the quickness and simplicity of it! No other ingredients to add but of course, if you prefer, the other works just as well! Mix your pancake batter to the right consistency then get out your green gel food coloring. I think the gels are more vibrant for…

Most farmhouse lovers own a bakery sign or market fresh sign or pantry sign (I want to make this too!) Or something similar so I wanted my own version. I made the letters on my cricut. I wish I could tell you which font I…

    Hairpin coffee table DIY

    Let’s play blame the brain game for a minute, shall we? I COMPLETELY forgot to post about how I transformed this old, outdated coffee table into a 16″ tall hairpin table. COMPLETELY forgot about it. I know you were totally anticipating this transformation (or totally knew nothing about it) but either way, here she is! I actually picked this table up years ago at a vintage shop in town, painted it teal and more recently stenciled it some kind of Moroccan design (I used what I had on hand and this just happened to be convenient ha!). But I wasnt happy with that. After seeing hairpin tables made, I knew…
