o.p.p. – doily tablecloth

a few years ago, my mom gave me a bag filled w/ old doilies that were hers, my grandmother’s and my great grandmother’s.

every time i do a little design switcheroo, i think that i’m going to incorporate this lovely lace into my design.  however… when i get them out onto a table, i decide i don’t like how the singular one’s look and i feel like i’m forcing the incorporation.

but now i think i’ve finally found a solution to give them the tlc and showcase they deserve.

gather up your doilies – lace, cotton, solid or crocheted and create a pretty little tablecloth.

thanks martha.

o.p.p. – green beer

while i’m no longer in the land of green rivers (the body of water nor the soda)… my love for st. patrick’s day and all things green continues to persevere.

to keep the kitschy spirit of the holiday alive, i bring you a recipe that is sure to put a smile on many faces. drum roll please… how to make ‘GREEN BEER’ from the folks at myrecipes.com!

it’s a pretty easy no brainer figuring out the key ingredients here. beer, food coloring, a glass or mug -and- some luck of the irish.

cheers!

o.p.p. – nail & string wall art

this is one of my most favorite projects that i’ve stumbled across in a long time.

this puts all wall decals and stenciling to shame…

all you need is some nails, yarn/string and a good word. we are moving in may and I can already see my  diy/guest room with ‘C.R.A.F.T.’ on the wall.

props to jenjkjk aka jkizzle… for seeing something grand at anthropologie and making it her own!

get it on etsy: vintage belt lawn chair

i’ve noticed a trend of northern hemispherians tweeting & posting about all the amazing (+premature) weather sweeping the land. with nice weather, comes nice weather things – and i’m sure visions of iced cold beverages and backyard parties are now rapidly running around your mind.

sooooooo – i thought i’d share something that i recently stumbled on while shopping on etsy… a perfect accessory for handmade lovers and summer sitting.
