    OMg you featured me again. Thank you so much! You are such a sweety Rachel. There are so many goodies in this DIY, that I don’t really know where to start! I think I’ll head over to check out that wood bead curtain first, then look at the clay leaves and wall decals, and I’m not sure where to head from there…
