These make fantastic and inspiring gifts...or even decor in a common area. Grab your Nurses Week printables below. These are a part of my Premium Printables line.

Nurses Week Printables
My biggest request is to create more printables in this specific watercolor block lettering look. Last week, I had a reader ask for nurses week prints in this popular format. I actually had been toying around the idea of nurses week printables, so it worked out perfectly. Nurses are the ones in the trenches...saving lives and caring beyond measure every single day. What a great way to celebrate them with their own special week.

He just loves to see the lay of the land in map form. I was wanting to change out a piece of artwork in our bedroom and I knew our recent map souvenirs from spring break would be perfect.

How To Build Window Boxes

This Post for Window Boxes is Sponsored by Miracle Gro and Bonnie's. All opinions are mine.

We've been dreaming of building window boxes for years. This little area of our patio was in desperate need of attention...plus, our existing herb garden is ready to expand. So window box + fresh herbs = the perfect lil' window box herb garden. We're now wanting a hundred more window boxes...they're addicting.

Easy Window Boxes
We have this random window on our patio that actually goes to a store room in our garage. It's kind of a focal point...but into a weird place. I made a little cafe curtain for the window (to mask the storage factor of this room that was very visible) and then realized that maybe a bit more color and fun is what the spot needed. And why not throw a little functionality in, to boot? We've been thinking about window boxes in a few spots for a while, and this quickly became a no-brainer. Plus...we love fresh herbs. This is the perfect spot for a Window Box Herb Garden. See how it came together below.

Goodness, Easter is so early this year, y'all. But, here in Texas, it already feels like spring, so I think we're ready for the bunny. As I'm sitting here typing this, I'm looking across our back fence at our neighbor's yard at a beautiful Eastern Red Bud tree just bursting with lovely purple and lilac blooms. I think it's part of the reason so many of my printables have purple flowers lately. And this sweet little Happy Easter Card certainly meets that criteria, too. Hoping you LOVE it!

Blue Velvet IKEA Sectional Slipcover

This Blue Velvet IKEA Sectional Slipcover post is brought to you by Bemz Designs. All opinions are mine alone.

This gorgeous new Blue Velvet IKEA Sectional Slipcover is a work of art, y'all. I can't quit looking at it (and running my hand across the cushions!). I think it's totally transformed the look of our family room, too. Come check out this Blue Velvet IKEA Sectional Slipcover below.
 Sectional Slipcover
When we first purchased this home, we still owned our previous home and wanted to keep it partially staged for potential buyers. We had no idea how long that house would be on the market, so we decided to grab an inexpensive couch from IKEA to have something to sit on in the meantime. That couch turned into the Ektorp sectional that we fell in love with after getting it in our home and really enjoying it. And while I loved its original white slipcover I've had on it the past two years, I am just a bit more colorful! I was feeling like it was time for a change.

How to Embroider Leaves the Easy Way

This post for How to Embroider Leaves the Easy Way contains affiliate links. I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

Today, I'm sharing how to embroider leaves the easy way...well, at least I'm calling it the easy way. Embroidered leaves have always fascinated me. This method isn't too overly neat and orderly...it leaves a little room for your own interpretation, regarding stitch lengths and shapes. Hope you enjoy this little tutorial for how to embroider leaves...at least, the easiest way I know. 

How to Embroider Leaves
I feel like leaves are such a big part of embroidered designs...they can anchor and really make smaller floral embroidery pieces work together perfectly. For the longest time (well, relatively speaking, I've only been embroidering for about a year), I would stick to the crazy daisy stitch and change it up for different leaf sizes. The only issue was that all of my leaves were hollow. I played around with lots of filling and satin stitches and kind of married two methods in this tutorial for How to Embroider Leaves the Easy Way. Check it out below.

Spring Hoop Art
Today's Spring Embroidery Hoop Art is actually a part of this month's Thrifty Style Team. All of my friends have shared their own thrifty fun at the end of this post. My contribution of an embroidery hoop is one of my favorite thrifty decor items...embroidery is a relatively inexpensive hobby and I LOVE finding hoops (and floss and fabric, too) at my local thrift stores. This Spring Embroidery Hoop Art is a great embroidery hoop pattern for beginners. In another post, I've also shared a complete tutorial on how to embroider the leaves on this hoop, as well.

DIY Bath Tray

This DIY Bath Tray is perfect to put across your tub for all of your bath time essentials. It was an easy one-hour project (not including paint drying time). But, seriously, how have I gone so long without a bath tray? Game changer, y'all. Find out how to may your own DIY Bath Tray below. AND, I'm once again sharing some FREE Mrs. Meyer's goodies (this time it's the new body wash and lotion and loofah).

All opinions are my own.

Not only are we building this simple DIY Bath Tray today, but these Mrs. Meyer's freebies may just be my new favorites. I've also taken the photos for this post in the bathroom that I never show on the blog...in all of its avocado green and 1970s wallpaper glory. In a weird way, its style seems to be coming back around, y'all. We may just leave it as is for a few more years and be ahead of the game. Find out how to make your own DIY Bath Tray below, as well as grab your own free Mrs. Meyer's Body Wash, Body Lotion, and loofah.
