Cozy Vases

So it was COLD here this weekend.  I really just wanted to spend the weekend under a blanket but decided to be productive instead.  So remember that last week I cleaned out my closet right.  I had some sweaters that over time had shrun...

A Fall Wreath with Bling!

I like a little bling in my life. Sometimes a little shimmer can add that certain something that a project is missing.  So when I was working on my fall wreath - that is the direction I decided to take. I started with these bunches of fall f...

Botanical Print Set

I stumbled upon these frames a couple of weeks ago at two different places. First, I got four of them at a yard sale for $2. Then when I was at Goodwill - I saw another two!  And it was on the 50% off day!  Crazy - I know - but I was supe...

Bright Blue Redo

After I thought about my Vignette-a-phobic post the other day, I decided to go rummage through my pile of stuff and see if I had anything vignette worthy. True to form, most of it you hang on the wall but then I did come up with this lil guy. I got...

Quick and Easy Custom Art Project!

Last week when I showed you my spice rack to bead storage redo - I asked for you to please ignore the flower print sitting up on my shelf. I got it for a $1 back in May and wasn't sure at the time what I was going to do with it.  I mean - don't...

We are on week two of the Hubby imposed "Jess-has-to-work-through-her-yard-sale-finds-before-she-can-get-any-more" embargo.  So this weekend I decided to tackle these decorative wall panels I got a couple weeks ago for $1.  I loved the size...

Chalkboards out of Cardboard

So, I know you have had a burning question since last week.  What is she going to do with the yard sale mirror???  Well I have decided after much debate that I liked the idea of doing a chalkboard best.  I had just the place for it in...

Dimming Down a Too Bright Paint Job

So this weekend,I did not do any thrifting. This is for two reasons. One - it is freaking HOT here! Two - the hubby told me I needed to finish up all the "projects" I brought home before I adopted any more. So - my project for this weekend was rev...
