As I was scrolling through all of the links from last weeks party, a few crafty home decor ideas commanded my attention. I mean crafty in a way that these projects are full of charm and elegance. What I’m not talking about is 35 ways to make things out of popsicle sticks. or child-centric pilgrims and Indians made out of toilet paper roll projects.
