A Gold Urchin, Peanut Butter Cup Recipe, and Stained Glass

Hi everyone! Have you noticed the pretty gold decorative urchins in everyone's decor lately? Target used to carry them and I've been stalking their store and website for months to no avail. Then while in Hobby Lobby recently, I came across this little gem and couldn't pass it up! And it was 50% off! Score! (I know you're not supposed to start a sentence with "and" but I write like I talk on here, so please forgive me) :)



I love it! Here's a closer look...

I posted this knock off version of Reese's Peanut Butter cups on Instagram the other day and thought I'd share them here too. My boys LOVE when I make these. (p.s. aren't those Dollar Tree napkins just darling?)



You can see the recipe I used from Our Best Bites HERE

I also got a few requests on IG to post a close up pic of the stained glass my hubby made for above our front door. Then I realized I don't think I've ever shown a good pic of it here either, so here it is...

It was inspired by this photo my sister in law sent us of beautiful tulip fields near their home in Oregon...



My hubby always wanted to try his hand at stained glass, so he checked out a couple of books from the library and looked at some tutorials online and basically taught himself how to do it. I think it turned out pretty well! Are y'all on Instagram yet? You can find me @texasdecor

Well, that's it for now. Y'all have a great day!

  9. Love the little sea urchin. If I saw them before I might have thought they were Christmas ornaments...have you seen how big they are getting on trees?!!

    I should try that recipe, I'm sure my hubby would demolish it. Love the window, too. Your guy has a lot of great interests! Amazing job!

  13. That stained glass is beautiful Lisa! When we moved into our home, the previous owner had made all the all bedroom light fixtures himself, in stained glass! I just love your living room décor... we are on the hunt for a coffee table... I just might have to hire you to come style it!! ;)

    1. Thank you, Kendra! Wow! That's amazing that he made all the light fixtures himself! I bet they're pretty! Good luck hunting for a coffee table. We had the hardest time finding one we liked. I wish we lived closer so we could help each other decorate! That would be so much fun! :)
