How To Make Your Own Candles In The Microwave

Back in April, I was sick of working on my kitchen and I wanted a quick and easy project that I could just call "done." That sort of worked. Let me explain. It started with my desire to find a way to showcase my vintage glass marbles. It's part of our inheritance from my mother-in-law's house. Continue reading

Hobnail Milk Glass Does a Girl Good I love going to thrift stores and seeing what treasures I can find. However, I have to be in the right frame of mind to go into one. Some thrift stores can be down right scary - and not in a fun way. That said, one of the most beautiful things I ever found was in Continue reading

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.I was all excited at first because I thought it was a really old Continue reading
