My review – this bedding is such a pretty color and such soft cotton . It’s the perfect weight for our Florida home – cozy but not heavy . Looks much more expensive than it is ! With so many patterns and colors to choose from good luck πŸ˜‰ .

The tray would be perfect for wine and cheese – shown here as a place for decor .

The set of 6 napkins remind us to live thankfully – one of my favorite mantras

Outshine Company

What a fabulous female run company I have had the pleasure of collaborating with

I just received the cutest cookie jar and utensil holder . They are such a beautiful shade of aqua . they look sort of retro , but modern at the same time if that makes sense

In my white kitchen I love a pop of color so these are perfect. Tiffany blue to go with my hydrangeas that are still blooming!

The cookie jar is a great size and has a tight fitting lid so cookies stay fresh. They also pair real well with my Rae Dunn collection . These cookie jars are made of powder coated metal and have HUGE capacity! they can fit ups to 3 bags of Oreos or about 20 mister sized cookies.

The utensil holder is the same color and holds my spoons and spatulas . Check out Outshine they sell on amazon for super quick shipping . I love Collaborating with this company..Female powered and FUN! one of their statements is,

“A mix of positivity, humor and creativity goes a long way. We believe in being authentic, honest and learning every day.” I fit right in

Painting Pumpkins to match my decor

One way I like to update my decor and save a little money is to shop my basement

A few years ago I liked everything aqua – I was really decorating with all things mermaid

I’m in a new home and my color palette is more towards the true blues and Navy –

– I gathered some old pumpkins and some new ones I purchased on sale at Hobby Lobby

Using a simple foam brush I use foam plates as my palette and pour some pain out – after that I just paint away – this is chalk paint which takes 2 coats. The first coat will look awful – the second coat will be amazing !

After painting some white. Https://www.hobbylobby.com. And some marine blue I mixed what I had left over and came up with a medium blue –

Decorating pumpkins with Modge Podge and Paper Napkins or fabric


This tutorial will show you how I decorate  pumpkins for Fall


Decoupage Fabric or Paper Napkin Covered Pumpkins

Tutorial to make Decoupage pumpkins from with paper napkins or Fabric and plastic pumpkins to work with any fall decor you wish

Use matte @modgepodge https//www.michaels.com( always sign up for rewards club and grab your 40% coupon)

Purchase white plain plastic pumpkins for Decorating at Michaels . Cut strips with a rotary cutter and self healing mat from Hobby Lobby.   The APP always has 40% off an item not already on sale

1.  cut 2 inch strips – 1/4 yard covered the entire small pumpkin 

  • 2.  Add the Modge Podge and wrap each strip and continue until  finished. Pull tight the strips and start painting on the Modge Podge  then, position them around the pumpkin – ( eyeball this one) . Keep adding strips until full , then Modge Podge the entire pumpkin all over and let dry. Modge Podge the entire surface and let dry completely .
  • Decoupage with paper Napkins

Paper napkins are so  delicate –  cut them into strips a – and then  very carefully remove the 2 ply making this very thin paper !!-Apply modge Podge to the pumpkin first, then add the paper very carefully (it will want to rip ) Tap it in with a foam brush – all around and keep adding pieces – if you rush like I do – ( not smart ) I had to turn mine over in a glass dish to dry – If  some pieces come off –  it’s an easy fix to just cutout some more paper and add away –

My napkins were gifted to me from Celebrate the Home – my love Of hydrangeas is well known if you watch my insta Homewithgigi

I’ll share the final product once I decorate it πŸ˜‰

Bambooville baskets

I sure do love the outside patio space- but during all this rain I’m constantly bringing the pillows in – and my living room looks like a pillow fest!! Thanks to @bambooville.us– they sent me this massive cotton basket – and now my outdoor pillows are contained during bad weather !! I have this basket linked in my amazon store if you like it – What do you do with your outdoor cushions at night or during rain? .

That’s the motto of this amazing female owned small business – I just LOVE that!!!

..Let me tell you this recipe box is kind of vintage looking yet it pairs so well with my #raedunncollection – my favorite part of the box is it has a groove on top so you can prop up your recipe while you are making it ! #genius …. the box comes with really cute #farmhouse style recipe cards and dividers – what a perfect gift- my idea would be to buy this for a bridal shower and have everyone write their favorite recipe for the bride- that’s how you create memories πŸ™‚ I also think it’s a great thing to give your kids when they move out on their own – you can write down their favorite dishes and they can cook !


I also got these amazing kraft paper card stock dividers- at first I was like – these are nice – then I really went through the cards- OMG talk about SMART- each card has tips and hacks on it!! Like how to make a perfect hard boiled egg- cooking temps for meats and fish – measurement guides- wine pairings,

 – too many to list but – you get 24 heavy card dividers and they all have important tips and hacks ! You also get labels if you want to personalize or organize in your own way – I just love this – in an era where we seem to be all digital I am loving the charm and memories of a recipe box and a place to store recipes from friends and family – Don’t forget to enter!
