Artemis & Apollo

This week I was searching for a House Gawking Post for you all, and came across this stunning house boat, and just had to share!

Belafonte, was built in 1969 and restored in 2012 by Chris Wyllie and Kristen Coates, it is located in the center of Newport Harbor.  This couple restored this boat and now offers it for others to enjoy as a rental.  I wouldn’t mind having a weekend getaway on this beautifully redone house boat.  I just love that they kept it clean and simple with white as the backdrop allowing the sea to be the main feature.  I also love the little pops of bright colours throughout to modernize the look and feel.  Sail away with me on this beautiful “house tour”.

HOUSE GAWKING: BEACH HOUSE

So last friday night found myself watching Pirates of the Caribbean – The Curse of the Black Pearl, as I had an urge to see the beach and even more so the beaches from my homeland! Yes oh yes…one of the sets for the first Pirates of the Caribbean was in St. Vincent and the Grenadines!!! Spent a few my days on those beaches, roasting in the sun….ahhhhh the memories 🙂
In the essence of being reminded of the beach, take a look at this gorgeous beach home, I can already feel the sand between my toes, salt on my lips and sun against my cheeks:-)

DIY PROJECT: FALL POM POM SWEATER WREATH

Fall is here!  I am telling you I think Fall is the most beautiful time of the year.  If there is a destination that has fall temperatures year round, I SOOOOO want to move there.  Fall is also my favorite season for fashion too, it means layers and it means scarves, jackets, hats, boots, and even sweaters.  I thought since we bundle up in nice cozy sweaters in the fall why not do the same for a wreath.  Below you will find my Fall Pom Pom Sweater Wreath DIY.

Items needed for this DIY:
♥ Yarn in the colour scheme of your choice
♥ Knitted sweater (I got mine from the thrift shop, you might even have one kicking around the house that you don’t use any more)
♥ Pool Noodle
♥ Duct Tape
♥ Hot Glue Gun
Instructions:

♥ Cut the sleeves off of your sweater and put them on the pool noodle.

♥ Cut the pool noodle to the appropriate size so that the sweater arms completely cover the noodle.
♥ Tape the pool noodle together to form the wreath.

♥ Next step is to create the Pom Pom’s for on the wreath (pictures below)
♥ Wrap the yarn around your hand 100 times and then pull off your hand
♥ Tie a piece of yarn around the middle of the yarn and pull it tight
♥ Cut the loops on the top and the bottom of the yarn where you tied it
♥ You will end up with an uneven pom pom, which you need to trim up to get the desired look
♥ If you want to make smaller pom pom’s wrap the yarn around 3 fingers and follow the same steps and you will end up with a smaller pom pom.

♥ Make as many pom pom’s as your design requires then strategically glue them in place
♥ I braided a bunch of strands of the yarn to make the hanger for the wreath.

Now you have a gorgeous Fall Wreath to enjoy!
