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 […]
Yes! I am dreaming of a White Christmas…. why do you ask?
I’m linking up today with a couple of Bloggy Christmas Home Tours. Love the time of year. LOVE!! I’ve mentioned 80 ba-zillion times that I have a new color scheme each year at Christmas. I am already dreaming about what I am going to do for 2011. (Being as I am so inspired by the […]
Do I make my own decorations? Of course I do!
I love my Christmas Artwork. It says “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” (Handsome Hubby likes my artwork, but says the two wreaths look like a cat killed a bird on them….) I also bling-ed out my FREE chandy, which has now been at […]
Useless, but pretty.
Tis the season for Stuff We Don’t Need. What could be more useless than these….? But you know what? They’re pretty. I’d like ’em if I got them as a gift. You know what else? They’re cheap and easy. You’ll need a heavy duty adhesive (I like Goop), spray paint and glitter or other embellishments. […]
I didn’t make my wreath this year. I usually try to make it from the tree clippings. However, I found a faux-frosty one on clearance at Target (my favorite post-Christmas place!) last January. I needed to add a little to it. Since we’re all white and silver this year, I decided to add pearl beads […]
The chameleon chandelier is back. Again.
Handsome Hubby asked me if I was going to use THE chandelier in our Christmas decor this year. Originally I said no. I’m so glad I did not listen to me. This free chandy has gotten a lot of use. Who knew?! (Well, I knew when I got it….) It’s been done for Christmas, for […]
Twig and leaf fall centerpieces.
I love entertaining. I feel like a grown up now that we host Thanksgiving each year. I love any excuse to make new centerpieces or to try a new recipe. (I also appreciate the motivation to really clean the house…) This year, I have been loving sticks and branches. First of all, they’re free. Second, […]
The Great Halloween Party wrap up.
Handsome Hubby and I hosted a Halloween Party on Saturday night. Thanks to the generosity of Shawn from Seriously, HH and I were fabulous vampires. She loaned us these great costumes. We got compliments on them all night long and people were amazed to hear that a bloggy friend I’ve never actually had the pleasure […]
ANOTHER Quick Halloween Fix…. Redrum
I have never been one for Halloween decor. I was always more of a “harvest time” Halloween decorator… but I sure am having fun putting little scary details around the house this year. Both Conner and Mitch told me they think I’m “going overboard”. Devin probably thinks it, but doesn’t say it, and Grant takes […]
