I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

I made these wall vases for my dining room that I recently updated. I will have more on the complete dining room later, but I thought these wall vases were a great addition to the room.

To make:
first. Pick up these supplies: a 2x8 piece of wood cut in to two 18 inch pieces. Two 3/8 inch ceiling flange. Two 3/4 split ring hanger. Four 12x1 1/4 wood screws. 3/8 inch threaded rod cut in to two three inch pieces. Two saw tooth picture frame hooks. Two glass bottles. Flowers.

second. Stain your two wood pieces.

third. Attach the saw tooth picture frame hooks on the back.
fourth. Screw on the ceiling flange.
fifth. Screw in the threaded rod then screw on the split ring hanger.

sixth. Attach the bottle and the flowers. When you open the split ring hanger, put in the bottle then you screw the split ring hanger shut. Make sure not to tighten it too much, I almost cracked my bottle.

These are my "springtime" flowers. I like that I have the option to switch them out throughout the year.
