I found this awesome DIY project on marthastewart.com and thought I would share it. You can make some really pretty teacup candles using teacups and some old candles or wax. I've made a few myself and it's really simple! I would post pictures of the ones I made but my camera is broken so you will just have trust me when I say they look lovely! Here are the instructions on how to make them (taken off this page
. Cut a piece of wicking to the cup's height plus 2 inches. Clamp one end to a wick sustainer; tie the other end around a skewer. Dip wicking and sustainer into melted wax to coat them. Remove and stick sustainer to cup's bottom.
That's it! If anyone decides to make some of these i'd love to see pictures of how they turned out, and i'll try to remember to post some pictures of my own as soon as I get a new camera.

As of late i've been feeling a little down, mainly because our second car's a/c broke so i've been stuck in the house. The mister uses our other car for work and I can't drive around with no a/c in Phoenix, Az, especially with a baby! That's the downside of living in Arizona, it doesn't cool down until November so if I walk anywhere or drive anywhere without a/c i'll end up drenched in sweat and red as a lobster. It's going to be a few hundred dollars to get the car fixed but hopefully we can get it taken care of in the next few weeks. I can't wait to get out of the house when we do, I feel like such a shut in lately!
My camera also broke a couple weeks ago and we haven't had the money to buy a new one. I haven't been able to list anything new on my etsy shop because of it and have missed out on a lot of great family pictures! My son started crawling a couple days ago and i'm so bummed I can't capture it on film!
Well on a more positive note I found some pretty cool things I wanted to share...
I love everything about this picture, especially the masks. (src
A real life tree house, pretty impressive. (src
I can imagine reading a book under this tree or having a picnic! (src
This plush is adorable, the blog I found it on didn't say where it was from or if it could be bought.
If anyone finds it for sale let me know, would love to own one of these! (src
How sweet is this little handmade rain cloud! Can be bought here
Cute decor and check out that pink fridge! (src
So adorable, especially loving the bunny one. (src
I have a vintage beach cruiser and i'm hoping it looks this cool when it's fixed up. (src
Probably the best cupcake i've ever seen. (src
Definitely the best kitty i've ever seen! (src
Hope you enjoyed all of these things as much as I did and hope everyone had a great weekend! I'll be posting a really neat DIY project I found soon so stay tuned..
