Weekly Spotlight: Floral Valances (Spring 2019)

Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

Our Spring 2019 season is well underway, which means everything in our catalog is on sale. Additionally, the curtains found among the catalog pages ship for free until May 9th, including the five valances featured here in this Weekly Spotlight. We’ve chosen valances with floral patterns, since real-time spring is still two weeks away and we’re in need of some refreshed looks to take our minds off the snow and cold outside. Tell us which one(s) is your favorite in a comment below!

Blue Belle Valance

Blue toile on crisp white; this valance even has coordinating tabletop accents to make it especially perfect for a dining room or kitchen.

Thursday’s Theme: Shamrock Craft Projects

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

We’ve gathered up some craft projects in order to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all the way up until March 17th, with every level of craftiness in mind. Let us know if you give any a try, and happy creating!

Shamrock Garland | Richelle's Creative Corner

The felt shamrock garland to the left is an easy way to add a charming amount of shamrock whimsy to a mantel, bookshelf or window. Green rope, sparkly thread or fishing line are great ways to enhance or amplify the look of each shamrock.

And if you have a stockpile of felt, you can also make the felt shamrocks below with some hot glue, a sewing needle and some thread.

Using multiple shades of green will add dimension to each craft project, thus making your St. Patrick’s Day display more interesting and fun to create and admire.

Felt Shamrocks | Positively Splendid by Amy Bell

Sparkly green pipe cleaners (or plain green pipe cleaners) are the perfect size for colorful beads.

Beaded Shamrocks | Fun-A-Day

This craft is just as fun for kids as it is for parents and loved ones.
Keep it in your crafting arsenal to recreate the look every year.

Four Leaf Clover Craft | Simple Everyday Mom

This craft has the potential to be the messiest out of all of these, but aren’t the messy crafts the most fun? Mix up the colors or stick with classic green; these shamrocks are both personal and whimsical.
