Hooray! I might actually be ahead of a trend! There was a fabulous collection of cowhide rugs show-cased at The Stories of A to Z. I don’t know that I want a whole (very expensive!) hide. However, I am glad I hung on to a dresser re-do from a while back. I did this project […]
So simple, it’s stupid… Dollar Tree make-over.
These little resin birds (and other hideous little figurines) are available in every Dollar Tree, 99 Cent store, etc in the country. Despite the fact that this little birdie was manufactured with gorilla toes, I brought him home and introduced him to my good friend Rustoleum Heirloom White. (Then I sprayed him with a coat […]
MORE decorating with road kill….
I love turning someone’s trash into my little treasure. My kids haaaayyyyyyyyyte it when I stop the car and grab something off a curb. I, however, hate to spend money, so I pick up “road kill” all the time. (Old frames are a favorite score.) One of the reasons I like road kill, besides being […]
Glittered pumpkins on upcycled pedestal stands.
As I try to promote my new business, a friend suggested I come to her Holiday Boutique. I could hand out brochures and business cards. Cool.

Free Fall Decor. (happy sigh.)
One of my favorite things about Fall? You can decorate with yard clippings and produce. Simple is good. Amen.
A simple thing.
I have been more and more crafty lately. (In a good way…) With Doctor’s orders to slow down, and dump some of the perfectionism/responsibility that I heap onto my own plate, taking the time to be creative has been therapeutic for me. And for our budget. I needed a little something to go over the […]
Yes, I know they’re noodle bowls. Shut up already.
I’m crafty. I’m cheap. I’m able to see potential in almost everything. Those things combine to create a perfect storm of unfinished projects. This secretary desk/dresser isn’t finished. As you can see, the most glaring problem is that I haven’t found feet for this yet. So yes. Your eyes do not deceive you. This piece […]
Not quite trash to treasure, but I left it better than I found it.
Mod Podge is one of my favorite mediums that l use when attempting to turn crap into a craft project… And? It’s cheap and easy, so if I don’t like it, I haven’t committed a lot of time (bad enough) or money (yikes! worse!) to the project. Like most frugal/crafty Mommies, I love Goodwill, Target […]
