A Tribute To My Best Pearl!

This is kinda sad, y'all. My best friend of 15+ years just had a birthday, so I thought I'd create a little somethin' to celebrate. She's moving down south next month, and although I've coped with her passion for traveling in the past, it still hurts to think she'll be so far away. Below are some pictures from the past 5 years, one for each year. I love her with all my heart, and she'll always be my other half, my soul sista, my best pearl!

Neat Little DIY Project

I was so excited to start this cute (and quick!) little do-it-yourself project the other day. I totally ripped off the idea from something I found in a friend's house, and knew I just had to try it! What I did was I just took 2 old books that I'll never read again (though it was still tough,) and started by taking off the front and back covers. I left the binding intact, and began folding each of the pages in half, one by one. The form just kind of shaped itself, and the less perfect, the better. It really is a sweet little idea for a bookshelf or nightstand; it adds the perfect eclectic touch.
