DIY Bath Bombs

DIY bath bombs will turn your bath into a glorious soak. Enjoy pampering qualities of epsom salts, olive oil, delicious essential oil fragrances and secret surprises inside.

DIY Bath Bombs

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of a busy life calls for a luxurious bath. Slipping into a hot tub of pink water that’s scented like roses, feels like silk ribbons swirling around you and melts into an explosion of sweet little heart sprinkles can make you feel like a queen. (Or a king depending on who you are.) My daughters happen to be huge fans of a store called Lush, and they especially adore their bath bombs. After a recent pricey trip of loading up on their favorite bath time essentials, my eldest daughter decided to experiment with different bath bomb recipes.

DIY Bath Bombs

She’s very sciencey and always smitten with a challenge, so it took her only a few hours of experimentation to come up with a perfect fizzy bath bomb concoction. She’s had numerous friends and family members volunteer as “guinea pigs” lately and we’ve all agreed hands down, that these bath bombs are, well…the bomb. 

DIY Bath Bombs

When making your own DIY bath bombs, the world is your oyster as far as shapes, sizes, colors, fragrances, and surprise additions are concerned. My daughter likes to embellish her bath bombs with a hidden capsule inside that differs in color and always entices the recipient with an additional hidden treasure of sprinkles, glitter or even pop rocks for a special effect. The typical round bath bomb can be molded into a tennis ball that’s been cut in half. However, my daughter decided that she much prefers to make unique shapes out of a plethora of different plastic vessels for an individual touch.

DIY Bath Bombs

Why not surprise someone this Valentine’s Day with a personalized DIY bath bomb? Tied up with a bow in a simple plastic wrap makes an impressive gift that anyone would love to receive.

DIY Bath Bombs

Treat those you love (as well as yourself) with a reason to indulge in a glorious bath any day of the year.

In case you missed it, here’s another suggestion for a relaxing bath ::

Wishing you a splendid Valentine’s Day!

Devil’s Food Cake Whoopie Pie

Devil’s food cake whoopie pies are a delicious way to show friends and family how much you love them this Valentine’s Day or any day!

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

For as long as I can remember, the week leading up to Valentine’s Day at my house has been filled with shoe boxes, bright colored construction paper, glitter, glue, handmade cards and hours of imagination and creation.

Elementary school is now but a fleeting memory and I must admit that I’m handling it, {sniff} quite, {sob}  well. My girls have blossomed into beautiful young ladies who are now getting ready to move onto high school and (I can’t believe that I’m typing these words) spend weekends visiting colleges. How is that possible? 

So the other day while I was shopping at my beloved Target, hurriedly rushing through the isles, I just may have taken a wrong turn and ended up in the Valentine section. Within moments I was surrounded by hundreds of happily chattering mothers holding the hands of rosy cheeked children who where gleefully picking and choosing the perfect Valentine’s Day cards to fill their beautifully decorated boxes… that they had just finished making at home with bright colored construction paper, glitter and glue. I swear that I could hear the music from Little House on the Prairie in the background, making it all the more traumatic to realize that I had a cart full of toilet paper and cleaning supplies, rather than my sweet little chubby cheeked cherubs eating popcorn and slurping a slushy. It was at that moment, through my tear filled eyes, that I spotted the devil’s food cake mix and I knew what I had to do. I must admit that I felt a bit torn about my initial intentions. For a split second I considered whipping up the batch of devil’s food cake to eat my sorrows away.

But then I remembered my heart shaped whoopie pie pan  and I envisioned my not-so-little-anymore darlings digging into each chocolate whoopie pie with a little girl glee. My mouth turned up into a Grinch-like grin I knew with certainty that, “I have to make heart whoopie pies for my girls!”. I’m still not certain if I said it out loud or in my head, and I don’t really remember driving home come to think of it. But what I do know is, once I stepped into the quite solitude of my kitchen,

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

and began the simple process of making a boxed recipe with some of my favorite kitchen staples,

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

my heavy heart was enlightened.

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

I became calm and relaxed and enveloped in the sweet bliss of baking.

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

Baking something for the people that I love and cherish,

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

even though they have the audacity to blossom and mature into beautiful young ladies.

Beautiful young ladies who relished in the whoopie pies while entertaining me with their wit and humorous stories about their day. This time I had tears of laughter filling my eyes and I was grateful for who my daughters have become.

Devils Food Cake Whoopie Pie

My heart soared and I just wanted to shout “whoooooopppieeeeeeee!” But I didn’t, because that would be weird. Not to mention, my two sweet young ladies would be the first to point that out to me and I just wanted to relish in the moment.

Here’s another decadent chocolatey Valentine’s Day treat ::

Wishing you a delightful Valentine’s Day full of lots of lighthearted whooooooppppieeeee!

DIY Wine Glass Charms

These easy DIY wine glass charms will add a personalized touch to your party that your guests will admire and appreciate.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

I can’t count how many times I’ve been hosting or attending a party or casual gathering, that somebody didn’t say, “Is this my glass?” It just seems to come with the territory. So when I entertain, I like to embellish my glasses with some sort of charm or clever tag. As of late I’ve been celebrating winter and all of its old school charm with all sorts of ideas and projects for a winter themed dinner party. I made yarn pom poms into a darling garland for my fireplace and I decided that these sweet little snowball-like pom poms would be just precious tied onto my wine glasses.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

I knew that I wanted to keep the pom poms off-white so to distinguish each glass, I tied on an assortment of tiny silver charms (from Jo Ann Fabrics). I selected charms that had something to do with winter and/or my tablescape, like snowflakes, pinecones and ice skates, to keep my theme consistent.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

They were a cinch to put together. I just thread the yarn of the pom pom through the ring of the charm and tied them onto the stems of the glasses.

DIY Wine Glass Charms

No more “Is this my glass?” Not to mention they’re stinkin’ cute, aren’t they?

Here are some of my other ideas for a winter themed party ::

Happy Hostessing!

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

DIY wreaths made with scarves are a cozy way to embellish your home during the winter months. They cost next to nothing and take minutes to put together.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

I’ve been up to some winter fun around here! I decided jazz up my January by setting the scene for a festive warm-up dinner after some outdoor winter fun. During the next few weeks I’l be sharing decorating ideas, DIY projects and delicious recipes, that will melt away the cold and warm up your heart as well as your home. The first easy and festive project is this DIY wreath made out of scarves.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

I decided to hit the thrift shops and found the most beautiful wool scarves and sweaters for my winter party at only a couple of dollars a piece. I bought a few foam wreath forms from my local craft store and then went to town. All I did was wrap the scarves around the foam, (which actually worked beautifully because the wool stuck to the foam so it didn’t slip).

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

Then used these floral pins (that have pearls on the end), to adhere the scarf to the foam. They were perfect.

DIY Wreaths Made With Scarves

A couple of the scarves had tassels on each end, but no worries! Just tuck them in before sticking in the pins!

Isn’t it just as cute as can be!?

DIY Wreaths With A Scarf

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make DIY wreaths made with scarves ::

  • foam ring from your local craft store (choose any size you like)
  • scarf (choose any type or color that tickles your fancy) I found all of mine at a local thrift store.
  • floral pins that have a pearl at the end (I found that these worked the best to affix the scarves because the pearl at the end kept the scarf secure)
  • yarn or ribbon to hang your wreath

DIY wreaths made with scarves. So easy, so darling and cost so little! I can’t wait to show you the rest of my winter party details! Hope you’ll come back for the fun!

Tutorial on how to make pom poms

Let me show you how to make pom poms.  Once you see how easy and fun it is, you’ll want to make them all day long!

Tutorial On How To Make Pom Poms

I can still remember the sound of my mom knitting in the family room. That clink of the two long metal needles meeting and then the slooooow sliding sound that was quickly interrupted by another clink. It was so soothing to hear the curious repetition of the fast and slow movements of her hands and needles. They mysteriously created beautiful ponchos and mittens and hats for my sister and me to wear through the winter months. Matching of course.  I remember trying to mimic her movements with her needles. Crisscrossing them in a dramatic fury thinking that somehow I would magically learn how to make the same beautiful music with them that would eventually turn into a velvety masterpiece. She tried to teach me to knit but I was never able to master the technique. I did however learn to make sweet little yarn pom poms with a round of cardboard. As of late, I’ve been craving an evening project to calm my mind and hands after the long rushed days. I decided to snoop around the internet to remind myself how to make pom poms out of yarn.

Tutorial On How To Make Pom Poms

Some people still do it the old fashioned way, with cardboard rounds, but I discovered that others use a fork. I gave it a whirl and I must say that I am smitten with the technique. Wait until you see how to make pom poms. It’s easier than pie. Wrap the yarn around the tines of a fork until you’ve achieved the thickness you want. Then thread a piece of yarn through the center tine (below the ball of yarn you’ve woven) and tie the ball of yarn (in half) tightly with a double knot.

Tutorial On How To Make Pom Poms

Slide the ball of yarn off the fork and cut each looped edge with scissors.

Fluff the pom pom and trim off any uneven pieces. And that’s it! Do you believe how simple it is!?

Tutorial On How To Make Pom Poms

It was rather fun making different sizes of pom poms with a variety of forks. The tiny little pom pom is just so dear.

Tutorial On How To Make Pom Poms

I am now hopelessly addicted to the delightfully mindless process of making little yarn snowballs. Even though I’m not making music with metal needles like my mom used to do, I find myself smiling with the same satisfaction of listening to her do so.  I think you will too.

Tutorial On How To Make Pom Poms

Can’t wait to share what I’ve done with all 432 pom poms I’ve made.

Supplies for making yarn pom poms ::

  • spool of yarn
  • fork (or a variety of sizes of forks)
  • scissors

Wishing you many relaxing evenings of making music in your mind whilst making pom poms,

Gingerbread Cupcakes Recipe

This year I decided to delve deeper into my collection of coveted antique cookbooks. If you don’t already know this about me, I adore antiquing and it seems that each time I go out on a venture, I come home with one or two beloved antique cookbooks.

Gingerbread Cupcakes Recipe

I simply adore traveling back into time, with each turn of an aged, stained page, to devour recipes of long ago. Times were simpler. Life was anchored in the kitchen, guests were greeted with old fashioned hospitality, entertained with favorite family recipes and then left with satisfied hearts and bellies. This year I decided to pick a few recipes to experiment with and share them with family and friends. The ginger tea cakes caught my eye and I knew in an instant that they would be just perfect for the holidays.

Easy Yeast Rolls

For years my mom’s gorgeous yeast rolls have adorned every single family gathering that I can remember. They’re always a picture perfect, soft and pillowy cloud of yeasty heaven that are snatched up in no time flat. I’ll never forget the day that she shared with me the secret to her success of her always gorgeous yeast rolls.

Easy Yeast Rolls

You know what her secret is? She uses frozen pre-made yeast dough. Yep. And nobody could ever guess that her yeast rolls weren’t made from scratch. I’m telling you that even my greek mother-in-law who makes everything from scratch, couldn’t believe her ears when the truth came out. These yeast rolls are a delicious side to any meal but they also melt in your mouth with butter and jam, and are just perfect for making cute little sandwiches with leftover turkey or ham. I’m telling you. You need these in your life.

Easy Yeast Rolls

Christmas may only be a few days away and I’m certain that you’ve got a bazillion and one things to do. But making and kneading dough for perfect pillowy yeast rolls isn’t one of them.

In case you missed it, I made some simple but delicious herb butter for Thanksgiving that everyone loved! You can make the butter pats any shape you like! I’m thinking a holly leaf fwould be darling for Christmas.

White Cranberry Martini

Entertain family and friends with a white cranberry martini for the holidays! This festive cocktail will add a beautiful sparkle to any gathering.

White Cranberry Martini

It’s been a white Christmas around here as of late and I just had to continue the merriment with a festive twist on the traditional red cranberry martini and make a white cranberry martini! I just love the elegance of this cocktail. The pale color of the white cranberry juice reminds me of champagne, but once you take a sip you’ll know the two can’t be mistaken!

White Cranberry Martini

This drink is the perfect holiday cocktail! It’s refreshing and light, cheery & festive. Served in an etched antique glass that’s reminiscent of icy patterns on a frozen winter window and garnished with frozen cranberries to add a pop of color, it makes a stunning drink! (Don’t fret if you don’t have an antique glass, this cocktail will impress in any vessel.)

White Cranberry Martini

Treat your guests this holiday season with a white cranberry martini. Or better yet, pour yourself one after a long day of  hustle and bustle or whilst finishing up your wrapping.
