Lace window treatment with cornflour

Annabel Vita


Oh my goodness, this was the quickest, easiest, cheapest project ever but I’m 100 per cent in love with the results. You know those little upgrades that just make your life both better and prettier? This is one of those for our bedroom.

So, privacy. This bedroom has delectable shutters, which I adore, but it makes window treatments kind of hard. You either have to hang curtains in front of the whole alcove (we can tell by the holes in the trim that this is what our predecessors did) or not at all. For the last year and a bit, we’ve opted for the latter option, except for a tension rod light blocking curtain above the shutters.


The shutters are great at blocking all natural light, which is great for lie-ins. But, this room gets crazy beautiful morning light and it always seemed a shame to be getting dressed in artificial…

DIY dip bleached shorts

As you may know spring is right around the corner so it’s time to pull out the dirty nasty old raggedy plaint Jane shorts and Spruce them up a bit.imageI keep seeing DIY videos on YouTube of dip bleached shorts, so I figured I might try to create some of my own. I am super excited to show you guys what I did to my shorts and I think they came out really good.😜 you’re going to need bleach rubber gloves a bucket or container and an old pair of shorts or denim cut offs. What you need to do is pour in enough bleach to cover the bottom of your container or bucket about an inch then soak the portion of your shorts that you want to be bleached and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Once they are done soaking in the bleach you can throw them in the washing machine or hand wash them you want to make sure that you do not wash them with any other colored clothing otherwise it will bleach the clothing. Then dry them like you normally would dry any other pair of shorts and your done.☺️ please follow me and leave a comment if you have any other ideas for DIY projects that I should do.😀

Täna ma õmblen

too cute 🙂



Naljakas, et mul käivad need isetegemised täiesti hooti. Või siis nii, kuidas parasjagu vahendeid kätte saab. Praegu on meil näiteks õmblusmasin linnas ja enne, kui uuesti ära viime, pean eluga laskma. Seega nagu sundolukord või nii.

Üldsegi on mul kohutavalt palju igasugu käsitöökraami, aga nagu ikka – kui midagi vaja, siis seda ei ole (loe: ei leia üles). Mu asjad on mööda ilma laiali ja tegelikult ülevaade täiesti puudub. Vähe sellest, et mul on igas korteris, kus elame, midagi, olen ma ka mõne tuttava elamise kaste täis vedanud 😀 Sundolukord või nii. hennaminglesl

Curbside Rubbish

Courtesy of

People, I work at a craft store, meaning hello discount. One of my most prized privileges is this discount because it allows be the opportunity to buy more, much more, at a lower price. Although, for those of you who don’t know me, I am one of the most disorganized humans. I like to call it an organized disaster, but to an outsider perspective, I’m simply a slob.

To all my crafters out there, our craft supplies add up, do they not? The littlest of beads and knick knacks to the biggest bolts of fabric and weathered furniture all add up and quickly take over the space we have labeled “craft corner” in our homes. One of the biggest challenges for myself as a crafter, and I believe for others as well, is maintaining a clean and organized crafting area. Some have the luxury of dedicating an…
