A Canister for Cupcake Liners

I love Pinterest! One of  the cutest ideas I've seen are these nifty ways to store cupcake liners:

Super cute way to store cupcake liners!:

They are genius as a storage solution, and equally inventive as a gift for a buddy who loves to bake.

 I happen to squirrel away cupcake papers like these.

I usually get them at the end of season sale when they are marked down to 50%-75% off the original price.

As my collection grows (and diminishes since I'll be using these for yummy baked treats), I will keep them safe in this glass jar:

I can't wait to fill it with plain ones and printed ones! I think it will be TADA!

Jars of different sizes can also be used to organize things around the house. Want a few ideas? Get them here.

Beaded Sashes

Well hello there! I don't know about you, but I adore these soft ands sparkly sashes

They are wedding accessories but they can certainly be worn even after the big day to turn a simple party dress from blah to TADA!

Inspired by these sashes, I made my own...

I found this sitting in my closet. It's a metallic silver sash from a crepe material. It's long enough to be used as a belt or it can be knotted as a headband. 

I also have this collection of pins and brooches which I purchased in thriftstores around New York City.

I don't use them as often as I'd like, but here's a good excuse to take them out:

New life for old things...I also call it, blah to TADA!

Wishes for the New Year

I stumbled upon these two iconic sculptures in New York City and I thought they were fitting to start the New Year.

May our 2016 be filled with these!
