Summer Decor and A New Blog!

I am so very sorry I have't blogged in 2 months but truthfully I was in a bit of a funk, trying to figure out interesting blog posts that were all about decor while I'm baking, crafting and raising kids along with trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life professionally! I decided to not box myself in and although it has taken me a pretty long time to gain my 65 followers I have decided to start a new blog where I can share everyday stuff about me, my craft projects, my love of baking, my new found love of sewing and of course some home decor! The blog is called Magnolia Sugar and I'm still working out the kinks with the design but I hope you will follow me there at http://magnoliasugar.blogspot.com/ . Okay so here are a couple of really easy things that make me feel happy it's summer and longing for the beach:) I really wanted something for my dining room table to say summer and I came up with super easy table centerpiece.

It wasn't a super cheap one to do, I spent a total of $24 for the hurricane, candle, sand and shells but I guess it wasn't too expensive since I can reuse the candle holder for other seasonal centerpieces.

This is a wreath I actually made last year after seeing a really pretty one on someones blog (can't remember where). I basically just wrapped a foam wreath in ribbon and hot glued shells all over it, super easy but very heavy!

Okay well that's it for my summer decor for now, remember for now on I'll be blogging about decor, craft projects, baking,etc over at http://magnoliasugar.blogspot.com/. Thanks so much for all your past thoughtful comments and suggestions, I hope you will enjoy the new blog even more!
