Chocolate Easter Eggs


Some form of chocolate is a must during Easter. Some prefer bunnies, however we are loving these chocolate Easter eggs that, well, may look like a delicious Easter treat, but are really faux chocolate eggs.

We were inspired when we saw this Easter craft, but we were having a hard time finding the right material to reproduce such a craft, so, we decided to do the next best thing... eggs!

Cross Easter Mantel


Happy to be sharing our Easter mantel with all of you today! Our idea was to make the "cross" the primary focus of Easter,  the wreath is symbolic of the crown of thorns Jesus wore, the eggs, rabbit, grass and basket are the elements one might have in an Easter celebration.

And somehow, they all work together!

We affectionately call our idea the, Cross Easter Mantel.

Sunbutter Cups of Gold


We made a healthy treat for St. Patricks Day that is Paleo, gluten free, dairy free and could also be vegan if you use coconut sugar or maple syrup in place of the honey we chose to use.

 We call these Sunbutter Cups of Gold. We wanted to change up the usual, peanut butter cup version, and used yummy, healthy sunflower butter in place of peanut butter.

If you are looking for a healthy alternative to pb cups for your leprechauns, give this recipe a try!

St. Patricks Mantel


What are your decorating plans for St. Patricks Day? We made it very simple this year. Most of what we used for our St. Patricks Mantel we already had with the exception of the wreath and the shamrock ribbon.

We were wanting to convey a "Happy St. Patricks Day" look with a rustic feel and not have the mantel look juniville. We are happy with the outcome and hope we inspire you as well!

Healthy Raspberry Italian Cream Soda

We LOVE all those categories too! The natural color of the raspberry is Valentine beautiful and like nothing from the food coloring box. What a pretty drink. So to your good health friends!

Wintry Snowflakes & Sequins Jar Candles


We are firm believers that one can never have enough or too many candles...especially at Christmas time! They are great for gift giving or just decorating your home and enjoying. The Dollar Store has been a favorite of ours this season to find items to decorate or transform into something more personal. Like these Snowflakes & Sequins Jar Candles.
