Do you love clear crap as much as I do? I'm obsessed with all things lucite/acrylic. I was in TJ Maxx and basically dropped everything and dove to the ground to dig out a lucite tray with gold handles yesterday. It's pathetic, really. 

I'm curious though, I wrote the following post about mirrored furniture almost exactly a year ago. Which do you prefer? I haven't chosen sides yet. I would basically do anything for home decor in any style at this point. 

Lucite or Mirrored? You could choose neither I guess too, but I can't believe anyone would be crazy enough to do that ;)

Personalized Engagement Gift Basket

Thanks to my hours [upon hours] of time spent on Pinterest, everyone thinks I'm really crafty and considers me the go-to person for gift ideas or DIY projects. I'm not claiming to be one-of-a-kind creative whatsoever, but I do fancy myself to be pretty darn resourceful.

Today I'm going to show you some tricks for making a custom wedding gift basket on the fly. In this case, I helped make this basket as an engagement gift, but same concepts applies to engagement parties, bachelorette parties or any other wedding-related function you're forced you get to attend.

Indoor Succulent Garden

One of my New Year's resolutions was to plant succulents and keep them alive. I know that's not a very difficult task for most people, but trust me when I say that's a big deal to me. My friend got me some sort of fern for my bridal shower, one that she convinced me couldn't die no matter how hard I tried, or, rather, didn't try. Yeah, that sucker was a goner in a month. Only because that's how long it lasted after the initial watering.
