There’s nothing that relaxes me quite like a nice soak in the tub. Throw in a bath bomb, and I’m in heaven! However, like Angela from Bare Root, I have a hard time stomaching $5 and up for one of those luscious bombs. That’s one pricey bath!

This glitzy beauty ranks as one of Virginia’s favorite projects this year. If you’re thinking you’ve run out time for wreath-making, think again! Virginia whipped up her wreath in just an hour!

Maria says, “There’s nothing like Easter decorating to say HELLO spring! I love the muted spring colors and the vintage hand painted quality.” Luckily there’s still time to [...Read More]
