Waste Not Wednesday Link Party 

This week I took a bold step I have been wanting to do for years on the blog.   I finally ditched Faeries and Fauna, and replaced it with A Pretty DIY Home.  Yeah!  I am in the middle of fixing it up, but got Grayson from IMark to do the actual transfer for me, he always does such great work, and it kind with us not so techie bloggers.  

My new domain went live and this is my first post.  I hope Google can learn to be as excited about the change as I am.   Faeries didn’t suit my content when my blog took a totally different direction.  I hope you love the new name as much as I do, its simple, to the point, and my readers like you can understand the name.

The featured blogger for the month of is Across the Boulevard

Across the Blvd has two contributors, Beverly who is the blogger and her daughter Gloria who contributes home decor and recipe projects as well.  This mother and daughter duo use to live across the street from once another hence the name. Beverly and Gloria both live in Charleston South Carolina.  I was able to meet both of them during a Haven conference a couple of years ago.  I can only dream of living in a city as beautiful as the one they call home!

Across the Blvd creates home decor projects and craft tutorials with the goal to help readers find frugal ways to create a beautiful home.  They create lots of coastal decor, farm house decor, repurpose projects, decorating ideas and the occasional recipe.

Beverly has been participating in  Waste not Wednesday for a long time,  and she is generous with supporting other blogs including myself.  Please share some blogger love this month with Beverly and Glorias projects, she is a joy to work with.

This week’s Monthly Bloggers Featured Post

I am always inspired by bloggers like Beverly who do dollar store crafts.  Its such a great inexpensive way to craft and really cuts down on the cost of a pretty home.  The catch is to see something dollar store and envision it much improved.  This dollar store coffee coaster makeover is exactly what I am talking about, and it’s a beautiful gift idea.

It’s always a win when you can DIY something boutique for the fraction of the cost.  Stores like Anthropology, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn are such a great way to find inspirations.  This Easy Magnolia Market Pocket Makeover from Julie is a beautiful example.  I love everything about it.
