It doesn't take a lot of effort to get beauty, does it? I wonder then why I don't do more fluffing or creative thinking...

Thanks for the tips.
I love the candle holder all dressed up.

Have an awesome Monday!

This is so pretty! I am all about trying to find inexpensive ways to dress up my house, spending as little as possible to make it as pretty as I can! I like your ideas here.

Also enjoyed seeing the recipes you have posted. I think I am going to try that roasted potato salad.
