Steampunk Airship!

This steampunky zeppelin by Globecraft Memories was far and away our favorite thing at the Craft and Hobby Show in Anaheim! The clear center is two bubble frames back-to-back making a clear round center. The gears and things are embedded inside! (This is a kit and can be found here.)

The company makes all kinds of bubble frames which are perfect for Victorian shadowbox displays. Of course, we love those too!

A Little Birdy Sold Me

Spring is the perfect season for birdwatching at the flea market, so our latest Flea Market Gold column in Create and Decorate magazine is for the birds!

We love the Treasure Island Flea Market in the middle of San Francisco Bay because it combines our two favorite activities: birdwatching and shopping. When you’re into birding like we are, you can’t help but I.D. every bird you see, even when they’re collectibles! Click here to see what we found!

A Home With Real Heart

Bring a little romance into your home with these heartfelt decorating ideas.

Get A Little Soft-hearted: Inspire romance in the bedroom with a simple but luxurious pillow embellishment. Just twist ribbons of raspberry and purple silk into a heart. Scrunch the ribbons as you tack them to the pillow cover with matching thread. Who knew ribbon embroidery could be so easy and look so good? (See more of this Valentine's Day inspired piece we did for Ladies' Home Journal by clicking here.)
