Welcome back, and happy new week! I feel refreshed and renewed after three days off. Over the weekend, we celebrated both my hubby and sis-in-law’s birthdays (they are two days apart) with dinner by the water. It really felt like summer sitting outside in the warm air, sipping chardonnay with our oysters, but this morning it is raining here and I feel a change…fall is coming! With autumn approaching I am feeling the desire to settle in more at home, plan and make lists of things to do and try in the upcoming months. Here are three craft projects that have caught my eye lately:
1. Isn’t this big fat knit lampshade amazing? I do not have the skill to make this, but I love it! The project comes from Norwegian yarn company Pickles.
2. I have had this simple, fun project from Creature Comforts in my to-try file for a few months now, and I think its time may have finally arrived! I already have a small chalkboard just waiting to be embellished and transformed :)
3. I love that this DIY painting from Oh Happy Day! is so elegant looking for very little effort. I also love the reference to Le Petit Prince here, I read it back in high school French class and adored it.
What about you? Any craft or DIY projects on your list? Would you try any of the projects above? I want to know! xo Laura
