Blender and a Mason Jar

Thought this was very interesting....You can use a Mason Jar on your blender to make peanut butter, or whipped cream.  40 years ago blenders actually came with a mason jar so this can be done.  I will have to test it and see how it works....

Hanging Art

When it comes to hanging art, everyone has an opinion. Some like to have their art work displayed in an orderly fashion, others prefer it in a cluster. As long as you have the main rule of thumb, keep the center of the pieces or clusters at 64’’ from the floor.

Pieces of furniture are usually defined for one function only, which rule tells us we can’t use them anywhere other than its original setting? 
Repurpose your furniture; use it in unexpected places that will make an impact such as an armoire in the guest bath to keep all toiletries and supplies. Even an old coffee table, choose a fabric, pick a color and you have an instant bench.

Make a Statement

These days the trend is black white and gray, its beautiful but at times can be unvaried. Why not have pieces in your space that makes an impact?
 Paint your exterior doors a vibrant color even having a chandelier with character to create a nice pop. This will give an unexpected splash of color to the room and create interest.

Maggie Sottero Sneak Peak

Here is a sneak peak into Maggie Sottero's Fall 2011 Bridal Collection.  I Love Antonia personally with its mixture of class, raw edges, and Swarovski crystals.

Maggie Sottero  Adeline

Vintage elegance is showcased in glamorous hourglass silhouettes as presented in our featured Adeline gown. A whisper of old Hollywood seems to encircle this stunning fit and flare with decadent beaded bodice.

Maggie Sottero Antonia

Artistic intrigue makes a bold statement in this A-line Vicenza Organza gown. Raw edged, structured folds peek out from an asymmetrically draped skirt, finished with a grand bouquet of handmade flowers strewn with Swarovski crystals, and a dramatic jeweled belt.

Maggie Sottero Alandra

Swirling panels of raw edged Vicenza Organza and tulle spill into mesmerizing soft folds creating this exquisite design for the high fashion bride. Handmade flowers sprinkled with Swarovski crystals complement the ruched bodice, adding a touch of timeless romance to the contemporary style.

Maggie Sottero Priscilla

Lavishly adorned with Swarovski crystals, this glistening bodice appeals to the princess at heart, the bride in search of a modern fairytale wedding. The exquisite ball gown skirt of soft shimmer satin is lavishly caught up in bustles of grand proportion.

Last Minute Wrapping

If you are like me, you tend to wait until the last minute to buy a friend or family member a gift.  Then you are left with how to wrap it, and sometimes a bag just won't do it.  For a quick last minute wrapping, look no further than your magazine rack.  Using the ads and photoshoots, cut out pages and paste the pages around the box.  Using left over scraps, cut smaller pieces to make a bow and easy last minute wrapping fix.

Engagement Shoot

I think this is one of the best things to look forward to after an engagement.  You are able to show off your love to one another in beautiful photography and also use this an opportunity to create a connection with your photographer.

One of the new trends in weddings is to use these pictures and create a signing book for your guests to share their comments on your wedding day.
