What Is Currently Inspiring Me

Happy Friday! I apologize for the lack in posts over  the past week! I have not had anything very blog-worthy to say lately. However, today I wanted to share some things that are currently inspiring me on blog-land.

Tutorial on Sewing a Skirted Table

Bryn posted a great tutorial on making a skirted table similar to Wisteria’s, but for a fraction of the price!

In Case of a Fire

This post from Young House Love is not a decorating idea, but an incredibly important wake-up call in safe-guarding you, your family, and your valuables against fire. I don’t know about you, but after reading this, I have some work to do! I am inspired to do everything in my power to protect my family from the potential devasting effects of a fire. Hopefully we are never in that situation, but it is always better to be safe than sorry!

Has anyone out there tried their hand at a DIY skirted table? How about DIY curtains/pelmet box? Any tips on guarding your valuables against fire damage? Do share.
