house-warming gift idea ... ♥

happy monday everyone.
hope your weekend was full of summer sunshine ♥
we had some happy, and some sad mixed in together this past week
one of the happy's was my friend's new home
and that we got to go visit for the first time since she and her family moved in.
she's a lot like me when it comes to decorating
and i had fun putting this basket together for her
filled it with a few things i'd love to have for myself as a domestic engineer :)

i'm just so excited about this project i found
it's a garland made up of all those free prints 
you know, the ones we love to hoard on our pinterest boards but never print out...
since the thought of buying and hanging frames for all of them is overwhelming ... 
so this was the best idea ever. 
can't wait to make one for here ... there's so many prints to choose from
i just can't decide... but how cool that you can change them up every so often
for seasons or holidays ... fun.

found this ceramic mason jar at joanns ... and whipped up a few of my cupcake paper flowers
i forget how addicting they are to make ... i could do it for hours.
it's so pretty to see the different patterns come together.
 make some. 
go now.

i added a few random vintage dishes, with some soap & sponges
i wanted to make some of these to put in there too...
but ran out of time.
that's how it always is with me ... 

i think she liked it :)
heck, i liked it... i wanted it.
but i gave it up. cause i'm nice like that.
happy making stuff.
