Felt — that fuzzy material you used in fourth grade to make cut out animals & party masks — has made a beautiful come back! By it’s very DIY nature, felt is a neat texture and material to incorporate. From it’s no-hem-needed cutting capabilities to the ease of tracking it down (every craft, art or kids store in your neighborhood), you could not ask for a more versatile DIY textile.
Full House featured these two lampshade and pillow felt inspirations, I adore the delicate flowered lampshade that could be remade with a few flea market broaches. The ruffled pillows below add a whimsical touch to the room and would be so easy to create with gathered strips of felt and a quick hand stitch (from Kelly + Olive).
This floral pouf from Modern Dose makes a fabulous statement and would be so great for casual extra seating in the living room. Lace felt throw pillows from BHG — you can purchase similar lace embellishment strips in scrapbooking and craft stores.

Halloween was a blast! I thought I’d share a few pictures on the details of the event (and a follow-up on my ‘dead floral arrangements’… as promised). My apologies in advance for the sub-par pictures, I snapped as many as I could before the sun finally set (oh, winter!).
Friends filled in the table with all sorts of yummy treats for the evening… but here’s the start of our appetizer/dessert buffet.
And my puppy as the King of the Jungle. Roar. He was such a sport to wear his homemade mane all night long!
