My friend Cait recently gave me a stack of pure gold. Ok, not really. But she did give me a giant stack of “gently used” magazines, which is the equivalent of gold in my book! In the stack were two recent issues of Country Living. I literally have never read this magazine and generally wouldn’t consider myself a country kind of girl. Yet I loved them both and was drawn to several great articles, tips, recipes, etc. I guess they brought out my inner country side.
In one of the issues they had several easy DIY projects for which I am always a sucker for. These home made ribbon bookmarks immediately caught my eye. I would love to make these and give them with a classic novel at the holidays.
Pillow cases made of used button down shirts are also fun and look pretty easy to make. I love how the different shades of blue all complement each other and the buttons are so cute.
So there you have it. I guess I am a Country Living girl after all! What do you think? Are these DIY projects you think you could tackle?
