Wildflower Ice & DIY Save the Dates

| November 13, 2011 | 0 Comments

I saw this wildflower ice how-to on A Cup of Joe. It’s so simple to do, and it’s soooo pretty. Basically, you put some edible flowers or herbs into distilled water (this makes the ice super clear) and freeze it.

My husband and I bought an old house over 2 years ago and we’ve always been threatening to do some cool wall techniques. My husband’s idea is always to draw some huge octopus or monster all over the wall/ceiling and I always reject that idea immediately. I’ve thought about wallpaper, but if you don’t know [...]
