Watercolour Fall Floral Cake Topper DIY


Autumn. Wind blowing, leaves crackling, pumpkins glowing, the season showing- us its colours. Almost a poem, there. What can I say? Fall brings out a change in the air.

DIY Polaroid Coasters and Wall Decor!


Polaroids. Probably one of the trendiest things right now. But, I can honestly say, though- that I liked them way, way back before when they weren’t given so much importance.
