I always find really cute and crafty ideas for home projects through the pages of Country Living magazine. If you live outside of America and cannot access a copy the next best thing is their website where you can find lots of great DIY ideas like these… a few of my recent favorites.
Mirrored tennis rackets, a bookshelf made out of dresser drawers (instructions here), handmade flowers constructed from vintage clothing patterns (I use vintage patterns as tissue paper to wrap presents but love the idea of using them as flowers), and a lovely message board which once had a life as a metal serving tray born from the creative Teri Edwards and Serena Thompson, a.k.a. the Farm Chicks, who regularly contribute to Country Living.

Amy Butler just wrote to me about her new line of bedding and I dropped everything to share these images with you. Yay Amy! It’s her first bedding collection with Welspun and is produced with 100% organic cotton and printed with low impact dyes proving that eco-friendly bedding can be bold and gorgeous. The bedding is 400 thread count and Amy tells me that it feels gorgeous to the touch.
The complete bedding line will be available in Amy’s online shop in July and at select Bed, Bath & Beyond stores. You can view a slideshow of the entire collection here. Which ones do you like? I really love the turquoise bedding with the lime green accents – so fresh! Congratulations Amy and thanks for letting decor8 readers know the big news!

Look at these little charmers and tell me how one cannot find a way to justify dropping nearly $50 bucks on s + p shakers? C’mon, you agree with me right, total cuteness — especially the little heads. Of course, looking at them gives me a ton of inappropriate things to say but they’d be absolutely fun to give as gifts.
