5 minute DIY Magnolia Wreath for less than $25


I'm kind of obsessed with magnolia wreaths. They blend beautifully with pretty much any decor from farmhouse to cottage to rustic and so many others. My style in my home is a little bit farmhouse, a little bit french country so it was inevitable that I would want a magnolia wreath (or 2 or 3) mixed in with my decor.  I swooned over them for years but never purchased one because I wasn't willing to spend $50-$100 for a large magnolia wreath.

How to Clean and Season a Rusty Cast Iron Skillet



I'm sharing some cleaning hacks to the blog since I'm stuck at home during the quarantine and I've been busy deep cleaning my house.

The situation stinks, but on the bright side I'm getting so many projects done that have sat on the backburner for years.
