How sweet is this?!?

A white floral jingle bell wreath caught the eye of Virginia from LiveLoveDIY back before Christmas. Even with the arrival of spring, Virginia hasn’t been able to get the wreath out of her mind. Well, she can finally stop ogling its picture since Virginia now has her own rendition, a much “sassier” spring version that flaunts tons of white blooms with glass pearls, green glitter butterflies, and mini disco balls for extra pizzazz!

The little memo board above the desk of Gina from The Cannary Family was overflowing with pictures and other mementoes. Fortunately, Gina had a large bulletin board in her garage that was practically begging for a makeover. Gina gave it the Ballard treatment with burlap and upholstery tacks but then also added a French memo board twist by creating a design with ribbon. Gina’s new board doesn’t skimp on style or space!
