The Good Taste of Others

I try to show you a DIY project that I've been working on each Wednesday if possible.  This week's project was to be a faux roman blind.  That didn't work out for reasons I will reveal later.  The same fabric was then scheduled to become a pillow.  I ran out of white thread before I could finish so that's not happening either.  Thank goodness for other bloggers.  Instead of my own project I've compiled a collection of DIY projects that I've been loving lately.

It's yellow and it's mid-century inspired.  Need I say more??

Framed cupcakes are low in fat and high in happiness.  How cute in a kitchen nook?

One of these days when I'm feeling VERY brave I'll try this.

I think this was originally a Valentine's Day idea but wouldn't it be great for the end-of-year parties that are coming up shortly?

Now that summer is around the corner you might be feeling inspired to whip up a little plant pot for your front porch.

Well now I feel downright lazy after seeing all this inspiration.  Off to work I go.


  1. I have an entire file labeled "projects to try" and it's getting fuller by the day. I think you have accomplished more in the past month than I have the entire past 6 months.

  2. You have been quite busy with some amazing projects, so don't feel bad. If we all had more time, we would get so much more done. Great inspiration.

  3. Framed cupcakes....too stinking cute!

    I'm finding that I am going to need to start relying on other bloggers more to keep or not post. There is only so many projects you can tackle in a day....not including laundry, cleaning, weeding, etc.

  4. Great featured projects! I love the bright funkiness of the asterisk clock and those framed cupcakes are darling! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Love those projects! Faux roman blind? Pillow that wasn't? Sounds like my projects!
