Pinecones: they last forever, they’re interesting to look at and they signal the season where evergreens reign supreme. Throw a couple of pinecones on a coffee table or mantle and you could call it wintertime decorating success. Orrrrr you could always take things further with these ideas…

Pinecone Wreaths

 Construct this wreath with rolled up book pages and an assortment of pinecones for a result that gives off a wintery welcoming vibe without the usual pine needle shedding.

Wintertime is garland time, right? Make your own with pinecones laying about outside and whatever spray paint and string you like.

Well friends, I am back from maternity leave and my, hasn’t it been a nice summer? I’m dusting off my work laptop and thought I’d wrap up our little nursery series. When I last left you, we had our big reveal. And now? Well, meet Hugo:

Baby Hugo!
Y’all, this baby! He is really very good. It’s been so fun getting to know him and seeing him in the room I designed. Speaking of, if you’ve been wondering about sources for the nursery, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and take a look.

My design style is in constant metamorphosis, but for now, I would have to describe it as glamorous industrial farmhouse (Don’t fence me in!). With such a mishmash set of inspiration, you can imagine my excitement when I found a piece at a local antique store that encompassed two of these designs.

When I saw this incredible typeset drawer hiding behind a bunch of old building materials posing for antiques, I knew I couldn’t leave the store without it. It was industrial, obviously, but the adjustable wooden dividers gave it a farmhouse flair that put me in a shopper’s paradise (Did I mention green is my favorite color?).

So, with everything it had going for it, I couldn’t help but notice the two things it was missing: glamour and function – both problems easily solved. It seemed like a no-brainer to me. This vintage typeset drawer was meant to be my new earring holder. Some meticulous measuring and a small box of nails turned my little slice of history into a practical piece of art.

OK, I have to admit — when my fellow blogger (Sarah) recommended I feature this felt crayon holder as a Daily Delight, I had to ask her, “Why would you make a holder for crayons — don’t they still come in boxes?” Of course this craft is absolutely adorable, but the simple box is a no-go these days?

Well, Sarah — who is a mom to two little boys — had to set me straight. A felt crayon holder comes in handy because a traditional crayon box is big, bulky and doesn’t hold up when you put it in a carrying bag. Also, crayons fall out of boxes very easily — whereas this little contraption holds them tight.

Thank you for the 411, Sarah. Think I can get one of these made for my BICs?

The calendar is telling me that spring should be making an appearance any day now (not to mention that pesky groundhog), but y’all? It is COLD here. We had a hard freeze this week at HGTV headquarters, and there is snow in the forecast tomorrow. Snow! I am doggedly ignoring all of this and instead looking at this lovely Easter wreath, packed with charming paper flowers and so easy to make, it will warm your heart (if not your freezing hands). Check out the DIY video:

The best part of this floral wreath? It’s inexpensive and, if stored properly, can be enjoyed for many spring seasons to come.

So, what’s the weather like in your part of the world? Are you dreaming of spring decor while there’s frost on the ground?
