Sharpie Magic

Another stroke of simplistic DIY decoration genius...  what do you get when you mix a blank lampshade and a sharpie marker???

Yeah... pretty much nothing short of amazingness!  via the cutest creative blog ever; Little Glass Box.

Everyday I Love You

My mom cross-stitched this little saying as part of my bridal shower decor & it still makes me smile when I wake up & see it on the dresser everyday.  While it's in our room now, something tells me that it may be relocated to the little one's room eventually...

(sorry, I need to fix that photo that has slipped down in the frame)

p.s. I'm now on instagram, you can follow me at erin_ethier

Kruos Bracelet from Anthropologie

Tiny pinch of sparkle mixed with a little boho chic... I see these amazing new Kruos bracelets from Anthropologie as something of a sophisticated update to the old rope sailors knot bracelets you'd wear in the summertime as a child/teen.  What do you think?


(& at $15 each I think I may need one in each color!)

If I lived in Venice...

I should think that I'd very much like to do my flower shopping from a floating gondola shop...

Book Bookshelf

I think I'm on a book kick lately...  spotted this adorable shelving idea & can't get it out of my head.  Imagining it with vintage fairytale books for the little one's room... or maybe even with books spray-painted gold for a statement "self" / work of art. (& cuter mounting hardware, of course)

Thanks Jeanette, for pinning. :)

Baby Lit Love

Can we talk about how darling these books are???  Teaching counting & colors, I love this fun little take on the classics... & what a way to impart a love of literature at an early age! Baby Sparkle will definitely have some of these on her bookshelf.



buy them on Amazon

Doily & Burlap Mason Jar Tealights

By popular demand, I'm re-posting this reader/crafter favorite - the mason jar luminary.  While I'm still working to recover the original post on Sparkle & Hay (sadly, it was in that last years worth of posts that are still garbled/lost in cyberspace) I thought I'd give a little re-tutorial for you here.  Such a sweet, & super simple little decor craft - perfect for wedding/shower/home!


All you need is:
Glass jars
Adhesive spray (like Elmer’s Craft Bond)
Doilies
Burlap
Twine, buttons, and/or ribbon



Full tutorial details can be found right here on Crafts by Amanda!

Fall into the Gap

Not gonna lie... I'm kind of impressed with the Gap lately...


Brights & neutrals & sparkles all in one! Not that I can fit into any of these, but they are super ca-ute!
