Spice Labels

Ok, so word is, you all enjoyed my sweet little spice shelves from Monday’s post so hopefully this will be a welcome follow-up. In an effort to continue adding a little dashes of bright color throughout my kitchen I created a collection of labels for my nice new spice bottles. The artwork is my own watercolor work created just for these labels.

1. Print the included PDF pages. I printed mine on plain copy paper and attached them with clear packing tape. However you might also consider using white label paper (see here)  There are 5 pages, 4 are filled out with popular spices and one is blank. (I used the font Ayres to fill in my labels. (Download Ayres free here!)

2. Cut along the dotted lines. These are set up to be cut by hand or using a guillotine, whichever you have on hand.

3. If you’re using the packing tape to attach your labels you’ll want to note that the labels are roughly the same width. Start by pulling out a length of tape about 4 inches long, without tearing it off. Moving from one side to the other, with the label facing down, press the label onto the tape. This will help keep out wrinkles and bubbles. If you lay your bottles on their side and then apply the labels one by one you can be sure each one is placed properly.

Hi Carol,
Thanks for stopping by! I didn’t set them up to fit a specific label size. However, you can use full-sheet sized labels in place of the plain paper. I love the full sheet size since you can usually purchase it a bit cheaper and get lots of different uses out of it. (Click here for some options!) Be sure you check to make sure what type of labels work best with your printer.

I just found your labels. I have printed them out on plain paper and they are lovely. Do you know what Avery label # if I wanted them on labels?

Spice Rack DIY

Here’s a quick kitchen Spice-Up!

Starting with a sweet little spice rack idea. I’ve been wanting one for a while. Sadly, I’ve been stashing my spices in a small box on the bottom shelf of my rolling “island” until I could figure something out. Well, when I was working on my magazine-rack project I worked out a plan to build my spice rack along the side of the upper cabinets. Perfect! They are out of direct sunlight, but still easy to get to.

I knew I wanted something simple that would blend in to the decor/layout of the kitchen pretty seamlessly. So I created shelves that had a platform attached to a brace piece with trim around the outside to keep my jars from sliding off.

I used a hand-held staple gun (Craftsman) to nail the shelves together. I’ve had my staple gun for years and I use it quiet often! For this project I used simple brad nails. The shelves are pre-painted the pieces white to make sure I had covered all the little nooks and crannies. At this point, I measured the height of my bottles (more about those later) and marked how far part the shelves should be placed. Then, I screwed each shelf to the side of my cabinet (check with a level first), through the brace, in two places.

After they were all in place, I wiped them down and painted over everything in the same white paint (Valspar - Bistro White) I had used for the cabinets.

After visiting a fantastic spice shop on a day trip to Charlotte, NC (Savory Spice Shop) and collecting fun new spices to try I bought a new set of glass spice jars (see below) and I am so excited to finally be able to fill them up and use them! If you live in an area that is close to any of thier locations, I highly recommend stopping in. They are locally owned and I had the most wonderful time perusing the shelves while one of the owners answered my questions and taught me some new tricks for using exotic spices.

Stay tuned this week as I will be offering a free spice label printable and tutorial!

Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Mary-In the boondocks - 10/28/2015 - 6:11 pm

What a great idea. Very smart and practical to find a place for them over there. And they will be easy to get to also for cooking.

Sharilee - 10/28/2015 - 10:36 am

I love that the spices/oils no longer take up cupboard space, which in my kitchen is very precious. The glass containers and labels make these necessities, art. Well done!

Opening A Window

Pinterest Project!

Today I wanted to feature a project that I found on Pinterest. Since, like most of us, I have a Pinterest project list a mile long I want to inspire you to get going on some of those amazing projects!


Window details


When I started my new kitchen, I promised I would put myself on Pinterest restriction until the contractor was done. I had carefully planned every space and had created a project list, drawn plans, collected materials and fixtures, and felt like the entire project was well in hand. Except . . . our sad little window over the sink. I just didn’t know what it needed or what to do about it so I figured I’d just have him paint the trim and be done with it.

However, it kept bugging me to think of leaving it as it was. So, I broke my promise about 2 weeks in and was tinkering around on Pinterest on a Sunday afternoon. I found this amazing post from a blogger, Funky Junk Interiors, and knew it would solve my design problem. My window wouldn’t quite fit the plans she had in her tutorial but her directions are so clear I was easily able to edit and make it work for me.

Here’s the original (click for link):

From Donna’s directions, I measured the window (without trim) and using her materials list as a guide, I sketched out a plan for how to layout my boards. Be sure to keep in mind the area of the wall around the window as well as lighting, cabinets, any artwork you plan to hang, etc.




We nailed everything in to place and then painted it out afterwards. I actually ended up adding the last level (on top) to continue the line of the base of the soffit all around the room.  Here’s a detail pic:



It was the perfect finishing touch. And the project is genius because there are no tricky mitered corners, it’s all just stacked wood! I’m planning to start pulling down the trim room by room and replacing with this system. This should be a great project from G and me to take on this summer. (Shhhh, don’t tell him!)

I got so excited when I started when I started my blog that I put a comment on the Funky Junk’s window post and she sent the sweetest message back. It’s so wonderful to know that there is a huge network of people out there quietly doing good and lifting each other up through the internet.

So, back to my window project. See how pretty it is, and how well it all fits together. It is the crown jewel of the whole kitchen! Who would have ever thought that a 10 minute foray into Pinterest could have started all that?

I owe Donna a huge thank you for saving my kitchen reno. Do you have a home project that you were able to complete thanks to an unknown blogger? A last minute idea that saved the day? Or, do you have a go-to blog that you turn to for help when taking on a design dilemma? Please share we’d all love to know!

Don’t forget to check out the original Funky Junk project before you go!

Thank you for stopping by today! I’m so glad to have you.







Produce bag

A while back I created a set of sturdy and cute little shopping bags to take help reduce the number of plastic bags in our house. It was a bit of an adventure but they did turn out quite nicely, if I may say so myself. (see previous post here) However, I was afraid that including a tutorial might result in tears, mostly from me.

Since then I’ve gotten some of the sweetest comments and compliments from the kind folks at my grocery store. But I still keep ending up with tons of plastic bags we’ll never be able to re-use. So, this weekend I whipped up a new one that’s specifically made to hold produce.

When I was poking around all over the net looking bags in general I kept finding cute t-shirt bags. I couldn’t find a tutorial that looked quite like what I had in mind so I decided to plunge in an make my own.  And it worked!!


DIY market tote from White Tulip Designs



  • T-shirt
  • Scrap fabric
  • Ribbon (I suggest grosgrain or cotton)

I started with a barely worn, heavy weight t-shirt from the thrift store and some left-over fabric from the other bags.

Trim the top off the t-shirt by cutting a straight line from the middle of one sleeve to the other. Using a straight line at an angle, cut the remaining of the sleeve away from the body of the t-shirt.


Market tote     Market tote


Measure 2 panels of fabric, 5inches by the width of the t-shirt (the top area where you cut off the neck). Sew panels (right side facing) to the top/cut portion of the t-shirt.


Bag - 6    Bag - 7


Sew down the “V” on either side of the tote. Then, fold over the top edge of the fabric about an inch and sew down with a straight stitch. I ironed mine down before pinning to keep it straight.

Cut 2 small slits about 1/2 inch apart, in the bottom hem of the t-shirt.  Now, cut a strip from the remaining top portion of the t-shirt and thread it all the way through the bottom hem.  Tie the strip together in a tight knot and cut the remaining ribbons to tuck the knot into the t-shirt.


Bag - 5   Bag - 4


Measure 2 pieces of ribbon measuring twice as wide as the bag plus about 6-8 inches. Thread each ribbon through one side of the top then back through the other being sure to thread each piece in opposite directions.  Tie each ribbon and sew it down to keep it from pulling apart.


Bag - 3    Bag - 2


The perfect addition to my little collection! I can’t wait to use it!

Thank you Pamela! I love using these. It’s amazing how much easier it is unloading the groceries too!

Pamela Smith - 03/30/2015 - 11:59 pm

Great idea! I love using the cloth bags. They are so much niver than all that plastic. They hold more and stand up better in the car. Thanks for the tutorial so I can make some of my own. I am visiting from LouLou Girls.

Spring is Here!

I created this watercolor pretty and pink, posies pattern a while back and am excited to share it here!

Simply download this file onto your computer/phone/tablet, extract the enclosed Jpegs, and upload as your digital wallpaper! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  Being the only girl surrounded by 2 boys I like to add a little pink where I can to brighten things up.
