Can I tell you how excited I was to receive these in the mail? I was provided these products, but all of the opinions are my own.  I am required to tell you that, but of course it's not hard to rave about Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan.  I haven't met a color in her collection that I haven't liked yet.

Thrifty Fall Decor

Decoupaged Pumpkin

Hey ya'll! Today I'm sharing my dining table centerpiece that I created on the cheap cheap cheap! Adding seasonal touches to your home does not have to cost a lot of money! I decided to stay with the same neutral theme I chose for my New Fall wreath: Are you ready to see what this centerpiece was made of? Yup.  It's true! Perty huh? The tiled tray and the wooden bowl-on-a-stand were thrift store finds that cost me less than $5 for both. I painted them with Annie Sloan's Old … [Read more...]

Antique Mini-Bench Makeover

Antique-Mini-Bench-Makeover-4

Hi friends! I've got a quick makeover to share with you today.  I found this little antique bench at a yard sale for $5: Actually it was the same yard sale where I found my sewing  chair.  The owner had attempted to make it over using this burlap sack, which could have turned out okay if she had finished it right. I decided to go another direction with it though...   I had this small scrap of fabric left over from my fabric inlay dresser and it was just enough to … [Read more...]

How to Make a Baby Quilt from Receiving Blankets

How to make a baby quilt from receiving blankets

Today, I'm going to share it with you! This blanket takes very basic sewing skills, so don't run just yet! My four-year old has one and he drags it all over the house.

Hand-Made Baby Shower Gifts

Baby-Shower-13

I am really close to my younger brother, largely due to the fact that I was responsible for looking after him a lot when we were kids. Honestly though, I loved to play with him whether I had to or not. He was such a sweet little boy. He's six years younger, but the age gap makes no difference these days. He can always bring a smile to my face. This past weekend I took a little road trip with my parents and my 11-year-old, to SC for he and his wife's baby shower. Today I'm going to share … [Read more...]
