Hello, lovelies! It's Elizabeth from Stockroom Vintage back to share one of my favorite DIY projects ever! When photographer Alissa Saylor came to me and asked me to style a winter picnic for Carli Josh with Stockroom Vintage rental pieces, we knew we had to create a romantic marshmallow roast for the lovely couple. Because what's the fun of a chillyfloral pillow shams, wintry picnic without s'mores?! Since we couldn't build a roaring fire for this engagement shoot, I knew I had to come up with an alternative. That's how this self-contained tabletop marshmallow roaster was born! I used a sterno burner (the kind caterers use to keep food warm) and a terra cotta pot that I glammed up with some gold paint. And, let me tell you, it really is simple to recreate. So easy, in fact, that there's no excuse to not line a table with these at your fall or winter wedding. It's a pretty, no-fuss way to let your guests roast their own marshmallows. These would make for the cutest make-your-own s'mores bar ever! They'd also be such a hit at any holiday party.

Happy marshmallow roasting!

I recently had a milestone birthday (I’m not saying which one) and when my husband asked me what I wanted as a gift, I didn’t ask for diamonds, an ocean cruise, or a new wardrobe…more than anything, I wanted a sewing room makeover! So I took myself off to IKEA to see what possibilities I could find. I wanted furniture that was beautiful, calming, and most of all, functional (plus reasonably affordable). What I had before was dark, and somewhat functional, but mostly a pieced together hodge-podge collected over the years. I have a fairly large work area (10′ x 20′) with an office in one end and a sewing space at the opposite end. I ended up selecting four pieces that, so far, seem to be exactly what I had in mind!

You love your pet and the wagging bundle of joy is the apple of your eye. Just like your kid, you don’t mind spending a good chunk of cash in keeping your pet happy but before head off for your next shopping spree, take a pause. Shopping for pets is not as simple as “walk in the store”, “purchase”, “get out” as it requires a bit of planning.

I’m still hoping for mild weather, but that hasn’t stopped me from adding spring colors to our home. Earlier this week I shared my spring home tour with tips to bring spring into your home?{even if it’s still cold and snowy outside}. One tip is to infuse your home with spring colors. Colors evoke emotion and can make a space feel more calm, cheerful, romantic, etc. Now that you have taken a little of our home tour, I’m going to share how I am using colors this spring.
