15 Vintage Easter Ideas

April has flown by!  I started this post 2 weeks ago, 4 birthdays later, 1 anniversary, lots of DIY projects spent outside (before it gets too hot) and the time slipped away.  

I was inspired by these 15 lovely Vintage style Easter decor and centerpieces, that I had to share these with you.  I hope you enjoy!

How to Make a Hairbow & Headband holder- Ribbon tutorial

I have created a Hairbow/Headband Holder for my daughter's room and I am thrilled to share a tutorial on One Artsy Mama.

I wanted to give you a sneak peek of my project. 

I have two daughters and they have quite a collection of bows, headbands and hair accessories they have accumulated over the years.  Getting ready for school in the mornings are a bit crazy, and trying to find a hair bow or headband in time to get off to school is difficult.

I created this hairbow/headband holder to wrangle all of their accessories!
Please check out Amy at One Artsy Mama for the full tutorial!  Please let me know you stopped by!

This was a super easy project, and just by changing up the colors and embellishments, you can change the look easily!

Sweetest Pin - New Life for this Forgotten Interior Space

I was exploring Pinterest, and I was moved by this beautiful, yet haunting photo of this long forgotten interior space.

The beautiful detail of this room in the ceiling and large windows allowing all of the natural light to come through is stunning.  It is fun to imagine what this room would have been like in its glory.


The photographer brings new life in this once special room.  I am so glad they decided to share it again.

What is your favorite part of this photo?
