I consider myself pretty crafty, but there's one thing I've never been able to do and that's learn how to sew. Lucky for me, I don't have to! I have an ace in my back pocket— a very talented mother-in-law. She's an amazing seamstress! She sews strictly for fun. Every year she makes Halloween costumes for all her grands. She's made hoodie towels, curtains for my living room and precious little doll clothes for the girls. Her latest endeavor was for me! Aprons are back and they are not only functional (notice the pocket for my iPhone), but stylish too! Love the big green ric-rac. Thank you Candy. I love my new apron!
If you don't have a Mother-in-law that sews, no worries! Check out these great aprons on Etsy.

If you are an interior designer, an artist, or graphic designer looking for some color inspiration, or you're just trying to figure out what color to paint your kitchen— this cool iPhone App is for you!
Let's say you just stumbled upon a picture of your dream kitchen online at cottage and vine and you want to remodel your kitchen now! Nothing like immediate satisfaction with the myPantone App. Just save that "Dream Kitchen" image to your Photo Album and follow the prompts on the myPantone App. myPantone will extract the colors from the image and provide you with the perfect PMS color palette!

"ewe hooo loves you baby!"Kaylee Rae, the only niece on my side of the family, has a newly decorated bedroom courtesy of her mother and her favorite Aunt, ewe know hooo! Kaylee had a traditional, pink, girly room before. Now, at age 7, it's time for a change. She chose a fairytale forest theme. There is a life-size tree painted on her wall with mix-and-match fabric leaves. The owl painting will hang over her bed that has a cozy tree themed quilt from PBKids. And the neatest thing of all is that she was given my great grandmother's bedroom furniture—that would be her Great-Great Grandmother (Mamaw Reba 1892—1984). A lot of love went into that room!
Kaylee Rae, I just want you to know, "ewe know hooo loves you baby!"
