I hope that everyone is enjoying all of the flowers that are springing up everywhere! And a very happy Mother’s Day to all of you — or as I call it, happy Awesome Women’s Day!
Things are in full bloom here and it’s gorgeous! Last month Heather posted about a DIY Pergola and I am thinking that may be my first big project of the summer! We had so many fun spring projects and so many great DIY’s this month! We hope you caught them all but if not, here’s the recap!
Cassity celebrated her birthday last month by creating some free printable birthday and gift tags! The tags are bright and beautiful and range from Happy Birthday to Just Because. These are definitely something you will want to save and be sure to use!
She also got best sister award when she and her husband delivered and mounted a curved TV for her brother! The mount swivels and keeps it out of reach of little fingers. Check out the amazing How to Hang A Curved TV on the Wall tutorial that they created and for the more visual learners, their How to Wall Mount a Curved TV with Sanus Swivel Mount! I have a bit of TV envy! The final product looks amazing!
We have so many amazing contributors on our team, each one is incredibly talented! We love these ladies and all the awesome projects they create and share! Show them some love and click to visit their sites and follow them there.

It is so fun to see the different ideas and styles that others have and to build off of them to create something unique and different for ourselves. Since we can’t walk through every gorgeous house there is to gain inspiration, we turn to photos! Magazines, online, and Pinterest to name just a few, and one of my favorites, the Remodelaholic Inspiration Files. Check them out to see some truly beautiful and inspirational homes with a variety of styles. And here is our newest inspiration files for the month, enjoy!
