My daughters 5th Birthday was coming and I had no clue what to do for her. We didn't want to make a big fancy party but I wanted something cute and simple. Bella (my daughter) and I were shopping at Savers with Memere (grandma) and we came across this wooden stable. It was in great condition and Bella just loved it. She talked about putting her horses in it and getting some other animals for it. So I bought it for her. We painted it together and talked about what she could do with it (well she did most of the talking.) Did I mention she loved it. So the day before her B-day she was out with Dad and her brothers and I finished with the last coat of paint, made a little banner and got it ready for the big surprise and this is how it turned out.
I found how to make the pig and cow cupcakes on pinterest. They were easy but I cheated and used store bought cupcakes.
Thank you for stopping by have a wonderful day.
Hello bloggers. Wow, I haven't blogged since October. It's about time right! I hope everyone has been doing well. I still have been visiting my blogger friends though. Love all the projects and inspiration. I just love vintage suitcases. There are so many ways you can use them in your home decorating. Here a couple I have laying around in my front room.
I love the metal tags.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I was looking on pinterest to get ideas for Halloween decorating and found this tutorial for a ghost. I had everything already so I thought why not give it a try. All I needed to use was chicken wire, a foam scull, spray adhesive, white fabric, a metal hook and some wire. The tutorial used cheese cloth but I used white fabric I had laying around. I made a torso and two arms with the chicken wire and wire to hold it together. I took one piece of fabric draped it over the body and poked some wire through the fabric on the top of the arms and shoulders. Then secured it to the chicken wire. I sprayed the scull with adhesive and stuck on the fabric to make it look like a hooded cape. I then draped the fabric over the arms centered the scull and secured it with wire. I screwed the hook to the scull through the fabric towards the back of the scull so it would angle down a little. I did it all in just a few hours. I can't wait to hang it up outside.
Wow my ghost has feet. Hee hee! Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
I have been having lots of fun decorating for Halloween. One of my favorite holidays. The kids enjoy it too. My Mother in law gave me two wonderful old doors and some old windows. The one I used here is dirty and chippy. Perfect for spooky decorating. The table I have had for years and after I looked at Mathew Mead's Halloween decorating magazine I got the idea to paint the top with chalk board paint. I definitely like it better now.
This is the inside of my house. I have been searching pinterest for lots of ideas. There are so many wonderful creative ideas.
Hi everyone. I hope your week is going good. I know that in my house it has been a week of getting ready and starting the first days of school. So it has been a little hectic. Summer vacation is over and it's back to being quite. wohoo! I have been reorganizing and redecorating. I have a collection of birds throughout my house that I have picked up at Flea Markets, Thrift Stores and Estate Sales. I thought I would share them with you.
And this is a momma bird with her baby nesting in one of my flower containers on my back porch.
I was happy to let her use it.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a wonderful weekend.
Please stop by and visit these wonderful blog parties.
Happy Friday everyone. I found this pretty blue suitcase and just had to have it. I thought of several things I could do with it but I decided to use it for a dress up case for Bella. I made a little space in her room then put up some hooks and filled up the suitcase. Just another way to use vintage finds.
I hope she enjoys it.
This is a little project I am working on. I found this foot board next to a dumpster brought it home. My hubby thinks I am crazy but you know what we do for our love of junk. I have painted it and I am making it into a chalkboard sign. It needs a little embellishments though. It's almost finished. I will show it off when I am done.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend. Rebecca
Hi everyone. A friend and I went thrifting the other day. It's nice to have someone to go picking with that likes hunting for those great finds as much as I do. We had lots of fun and found some awesome stuff. Here are my find.
A wonderful industrial file cabinet for craft storage.
These beautiful vintage framed flower litho's. Very shabby chic.
And some witches cauldrons to use for Halloween decorations.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Hi everyone. TGIF! It's been a long week. I hope your week has gone better than mine. But lets get to the good bloggy stuff. I had this table base that my Mother in law gave me and of course I always wanted to make something with it. The hubby and I were taking down the bunk beds in our son's room and decided we weren't going to sell it or give it away because it was pretty tore up. So I thought I could recycle the wood pieces and this is what I did with them.
I put them together and made myself a potting table.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hi, My Mother in law made this beautiful summer hat for Bella. She looked so cute in it I took some pics. I have three boys and Bella. The boys didn't like to take pictures much so my love of taking there picture usually didn't work out so well. Then Bella came along and she loves to be in pictures. So we have lots of fun together doing them and it is so easy when the model is this adorable.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
