10+ Simple DIY Halloween Ideas

Hello awesome friends! While I'm of town this week, I thought it would be fun to share some of my Halloween projects from over the years! My love for all things Halloween began after I met my Hubby. My oldest son was five at the time. We all went to Target after dinner one Saturday night, and my Hubby suggested we buy a few things to decorate my house for Halloween. He thought Jack would really get a kick out of it. They loaded up an entire cart and the rest is history! We have continued … [Read more...]

Booth Update October 2019

Hello sweet friends! This week I'm heading out of town for a conference so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to take a visit to my booth!  For those of you that may not know, I have a booth space at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach where I sell most of the pieces I make over. I like to share my booth space by talking about what pieces, mostly the larger ones, have come and gone since the last time we visited. When I last shared it back in April, business … [Read more...]

Cabinet Door Upcycle

Happy Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday, beautiful friends! Today I and four of my favorite upcycling friends are all sharing makeovers of what some might call trash! Be sure to look for my friends' projects at the bottom. Of course, I have to choose something from my current haul and the most fitting item in the lot is this cabinet door that came out of our old kitchen: It really was trash that I would not let my Hubby throw away.

Cottage-Inspired Drop Leaf Side-Table

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends! Can you even believe it's October already?? I'm continuing to work through my Fall haul and today this drop leaf side table is getting a cottage-inspired makeover: I found this table for $25 at the thrift store a couple of months ago. I thought this cutie pie was well worth that and scooped it right up. The top, however, had quite a few dings and knicks, so I went a little more distressed on this one to make that work. I've included a few affiliate links so … [Read more...]

Sad News, but Don’t be Sad

I always want this blog of mine to be a place of joy, but I'm afraid I have some very sad news. Unbeknown to us, one of our kitties was very sick when we got her. I took them both for their first well-check yesterday morning and although there were very few signs that were apparent to us, it turned out that Lucy was very anemic and had jaundice. We were cautioned by our vet that this indicated a very poor prognosis and that we may have a very difficult decision ahead of us. We took her … [Read more...]
