DIY: Summer Lanterns

Ahh . . I love summer lanterns. I was searching for a new way to spice up my lanterns that Welcome guests to my home.  Here are some Ideas that I found from Pottery Barn.

And here is what I put together.

My mother shared a quote with me this week and thought I would end with that. Enjoy your lanterns!

My Work Space

I wanted to share with you how I have tried to design an office space that is creative, organized, and personalized!  In this post you can learn some tips to create a work space that you love!
  • Add a unexpected splash of color.
  • Use storage boxes for clean organization (got mine at Ikea).
  • Back your bookcases with Fabric, Paint, or Wallpaper.
  • Hang pictures of your favorite things.
  • Add something to keep the space moving (I am going to add the painted wallpaper. It will keep me energized and ready to work)!

I hope you enjoyed My Office.  Email if you have any questions or email me pics so that I can help turn your office into a inspiring re-treat!
