Office Update

My office is very small and its odd shape makes it difficult for me to get inspired and finish this never ending project! I still need to find a very large wall cabinet to go over the other desk but here is a sneak peak at what has already been done.

From this to this

I resized 3 stair treads and used corbels to hold them together

I used cork tiles for a small back splash

The camera is a manual pencil sharpener found on amazon

Vintage thread spools found at antique markets help dress the shelf

More spools

This mini dress form helps keep my tags in handy

a vintage hotel room key chain just because....

Here is the finished side of my office! 
Behind the door is the laundry room

More to come soon.....

Homemade Bath Salts

Who doesn't love a warm relaxing bath all year round?

I sure do!

How to make your own and inexpensive bath salt


2 cups Epson Salt
2 teaspoons of vegetable or fruit oil such as jojoba, olive, grapeseed, apricot or almond
5 to 10 drops of your favorite essential oil (this is optional). My favorites are lavender, geranium, eucalyptus)
1/4 cup sea salt (this is optional)
1 to 2 drops food coloring (this is optional but safe to use. It may give your bath water a bit of a tint)
A glass jar with an air tight lid


Mix all the ingredients together with a fork making sure to break up all the lumps. Store in a glass jar.
Makes a great gift.
