Back At It

It has been so long since I have worked on any project. When I went through my “Maggie” books the other day, I came across this pattern I have been wanting to make for so long.  I figured I would get it all cut out so at least I would have that much done but once I did that, I decided I wanted to start on it.  Here is part of it.

I managed to get this cute picture of Paley the other night. He was watching the storm clouds.

My summer is winding down…it won’t be long until school is back in session.

Picture Frame

I found the neatest frame the other day for one of Jake and Jackie’s engagement pictures.  I was thinking of what I could clip on to it and  I remembered I had this little tag that says, “Happy is this way.”   Decided that was perfect!

Jasper seemed to like it, I think he was mesmerized!

Another Project

I’ve been seeing a lot of repurposed lamp shades so I thought I would give it a try.  I picked up a lampshade at the thrift store and bought some burlap ribbon and I had some muslin that I made into bows. I attached the burlap and bows with some hot glue.  I’m one of those that like instant results, besides, I just wanted to hang it on my patio!

It’s kind of hard to see as I was looking into the light.

Fairy Garden Fun

Long time no post and no excuse, other than just “life” itself! Motivation and inspiration…I’m kind of lacking those right now but I did manage to pull something together for once.

I thought I would share with you an idea I have had in my head for quite  some time.  I finally managed to drag out my ongoing collection of pieces I have acquired for this project. 

I found these cute little marked down chairs in the after Christmas tree ornaments.  I guess they had beach theme ornaments…who knew?! I wanted to paint them white and 6 months after Christmas I finally did.

Found this paint 1/2 price at Michael’s Craft Store.

When I was looking for fake plants to use I found some neat succulents but they wanted $6 just for one, so imagine my excitement when I came across this  $6 wreath at the thrift store, with greens and succulents!

Yay for me!

I had purchased this lantern and the green mossy grass 1/2 price. Then I picked up the styrofoam, little flower pots and some rocks. I had the little fairy and flowers. I just laid the grass on top of the styrofoam and then placed the items where I wanted. I didn’t want to glue them in because I wanted to be able to change it up now and then

More Magnet Fun

Awhile back (here) I told you about my old ceiling tile and how I wanted to use it for a magnet board. I’ve been on the lookout for pieces that would make great magnets. Part of the fun is finding objects that I can turn into magnets. I came across this metal bird thinking it would make a neat one.  I found these pretty paper flowers in a craft store. You can find some neat things in the dollar bins once in awhile too!

Terrible Twos

Jasper is just like a kid in his terrible twos!  He has been so darn ornery it’s not even funny!  He likes to go from one “no” to the next.  If it’s attention he’s after, he sure is getting it!  I hope he calms down the older he gets!

Another Change

I just love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV with Chip and Joanna Gaines.  Love her decorating style.  I changed things up a bit above my fireplace. Again, just trying to lighten things up. Still love my primitives but maybe adding some rustic farmhouse touches.
