This is posted as a Mother's Day Project, but this tea towel cake with accessories could be for any occasion and I am thinking specifically bridal showers here, but it would also be cute as a Christmas Gift with Christmas Print Tea Towels and accessories.   Found on Aly and Ash.

I love this really pretty Autumnal Hydrangea Wreath!  And looking at the tutorial on A Night Owl, it's really simple to make!

We actually already do this in our house.  Towel racks on the back of bedroom doors to help maximize the storage space available.  There just isn't enough room in the bathroom for everyone's towels.  From Listotic.

Did you do this with gum wrappers when you were growing up?   Folded Paper Bracelets.   I remember doing this.  I liked the Juicy Fruit Gum Wrappers best.   Found on Pickle Bums.

Now, this is a really cute idea.   Felt Roll Pencil Carrier for when school starts.  Found on Mama From Greece.  It is in Greek but there is a translate button and it is a complete pictorial tutorial.

And that's it for this week!  I hope that you found something that you were interested in here today!

A thought to carry with you as you go through the rest of your day . . .

Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion
if we can simply learn that as well as giving,
it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.
