Milk glass is a great way to add a little bit of vintage charm to your home.  This diy is so easy and cheap that we couldn’t resist trying it  for ourselves (and the added bonus of making your own is that you can choose vases or bottles that you like).  All the more reason for us to keep buying spring flowers!

04.11.13

As DIY bloggers, we understand how hard it is to organize all your inspirations and ideas.  Magazine clip outs, letters, newspaper articles, and sometimes just a swatch of color get hidden away in boxes or notebooks and are easily forgotten.  But like that sticky note on your refrigerator reminding you of your dentist appointment, things that inspire you deserve an equally significant spot in your line of sight.  We are constantly sticking things to mirrors, walls, or corkboards in our bedrooms, so when we were approached by the owner of Savoir Faire Catering to design an inspiration board for her office, we understood what she needed.  She wanted a way to display things like recipes, food presentation, table settings, and notes from her clients and we think we found the solution.

Today’s post is DIY mini Easter baskets for your friends. They are super easy to make and we filled them with yummy candies and personalized them by adding little gifts that each person would enjoy.  Instead of using the traditional baskets (what do you do with them after Easter?), we used egg cartons which are both compostable and recyclable.

Today is March 14th, a.k.a. Pi Day, and we couldn’t think of a better way of celebrating than with lots of pie!  Inspired by our pre-calculus teacher Mr. Cole’s enthusiasm for Pi Day in our senior year of high school, we first made mini pies.  We gave them to all of our teacher’s, (we know, we’re kiss-ups), and now they’re our favorite way to have pie! Easy to serve, fun to make, and impossibly adorable, you’ll want to try this recipe for yourself!
