Just A Little Transformation


I was at Michael’s the other day and came across these little burlap flowers.  They were a dollar each and I knew just what I wanted to do with them.  As you can see in the first picture the centers were too bright a yellow so….

I put some antiquing gel on them to tone them down.

They already had this clip on the back of them so I just left it.

I went out into the yard and found me some sticks and clipped the flowers onto them and there you have it.

Every once in awhile I do some kind of project that requires sticks or branches.  I often wonder what my neighbors think when they see me out there hunting up these necessities!  But hey, they are free so what can I say!

Enjoy your day!

It’s Me Jasper…

Hi everybody, I snuck in and wrote this post.  Mom doesn’t know it yet, won’t she be surprised!  I like to climb in and out of things.  The latest thing I discovered I could get into was this neat little contraption. I was having fun and then mom peeked around the corner and saw me.

Then she disappeared.  I know she went to go get her camera.  For some reason she has to take a picture of everything I do, it can be very annoying at times.   I guess I will sit here until she comes back so she can snap a photo.

New Treasures

 Copy of lpcp 439

I have been on the hunt for a dry sink for a long time.  I have come across some, but a lot of them were too big or just didn’t speak to me as I often say .  I kept telling myself that someday the right one would come along and it did!  It came from friend Twila’s log home, which makes it even more special to me. She has been doing some downsizing.  It’s just the perfect size and I love the color too.

I also purchased this little table at Sweet Annies  a while back which originally belonged to Twila as well.

It always makes things a little more special when you know some history about a piece. I know I will enjoy these wonderful finds for years to come!

Have a great day!

This was a fountain that she repurposed as a planter.

Good morning everyone!  Did anyone’s reading list on google disappear?  I see that some of you have joined Bloglovin.  It says you can sign up through Facebook, which I don’t want to do or you can sign up through email address.  To those that signed up, which way did you sign up?  If you signed up through email, did you use your regular email or did you create a new one just to use for your blog?  Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give me!
