Using Leaves For Fall Decorating

West Elm Inspired Vase

Hello everyone! Are you having a great week? Are your kids back in school? Is it still really hot where you are? It is still in the 100s here. But I am enjoying it.

Yesterday I got my haircut and I was right by West Elm. Sounds fun, right? I had a great time and was completely inspired. Once I got home, I was browsing through the catalog and remembered the vases that I saw at the store. I like the color and the style, don’t you?  West Elm Magazine Inspiration

It is so pretty and my style. I headed to the thrift store to find something similar to create a West Elm Inspired Vase.

Thrifted Vase

I found this lovely vase for $1. Once I got home and I was ready to use my Champness Fusion Mineral Paint. If you remember I used this same color on my reloved desk.

How To Make a Lemon Meringue Pie

Well hello there! It is a beautiful day here at our cottage in the desert. The Summer thunder storms make me happy. AND, PIE is another thing that makes me happy. Today I have a special gift for YOU!

I am sharing my How To Make a Lemon Meringue Pie steps and directions. I make EVERYTHING in this pie from scratch. No fillers, or substitutes here.

Not only that! It is National Lemon Meringue Pie Day today. What better way to celebrate than with a Giveaway. OR what about TWO giveaways right here!

I will get to that later, but for now, I want to show you How To Make a Lemon Meringue Pie.
