Map Butterflies

When I held my Freschetta Simply Inspired Giveaway, I told ya’ll that I’d make a little something extra for the winner. Cassie was the winner and after some debating and procrastination on my part, I came up with a fitting project for her. I asked […]

Knock-Off Pier 1 Letter Balls

Knock-Off Pier 1 Letter Balls

Several months back I found these “decorative spheres” at Pier 1. (Pier 1 likes to call them “spheres,” I just call them balls). I immediately liked them, but seeing as I don’t have any J’s, Q’s or X’s in any of my names, I was […]

Spring Square Wreath

Spring Square Wreath

Back in February when I was trying to pioneer a technique for making my own foam wreath forms, I made a square wreath form. My technique didn’t turn out as I envisioned, but I still was able to use the forms. I made a square […]

Framed Cocktail Silverware

Framed Cocktail Silverware

I was thrifting with a friend a few months back when I came upon a couple of narrow frames. They were $1.91/each and the store was advertising a “Huge 50% off” Sale. I was all excited to only pay a buck for each of my […]

New Life to an Old Nativity

New Life to an Old Nativity

 Many years ago, my Mom made a beautiful ceramic nativity scene. Each piece was lovingly painted, glazed and then fired. It took her weeks to make and when she was done, we had this truly special Nativity. Over the years, we were rough and, sadly, […]

Free Family Fun in Ohio

Free Family Fun in Ohio

I had all my boys together this weekend. We were looking for something to do, so we headed out into the country-side. It was a beautiful day and Hubs had seen this area and wanted to explore it more. We headed out to a state […]

It’s My World…I’ll Do What I Want!

It’s My World…I’ll Do What I Want!

We have this one thrift store in town that prices things in the oddest fashion, $.90, $1.91, $2.92, $3.93…you get the point. I found this globe during one of my visits. Since it was only $3.93 I decided it needed to come home with me. […]
