Upcycled wagon and foot stool

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. My weekend has been filled with cleaning and organizing still. So much to do!!!! I have a couple of upcycled projects I did last year that I never got around to posting about. I thought now would be a good time. I am dedicating myself to doing more this year and posting about it. ;)

This was an old wagon that was falling apart as I took of the top I saw that the 
wheels and bottom frame were still in good condition. So I stained my
Farmers Market crate with Minwax wood finish stain in Dark Walnut to give
it a old rustic look. Simple easy upcycled project. 


I found this foot stool at a yard sale and of course I had to paint it white. Then it took me forever 
to find a fabric I liked until I went on my trip to The Longest Yard Sale. So much
awesome stuff I wanted to buy it all. Lots of beautiful old homes and wonderful vintage 
and antiques for sale at the hundreds of yard sales along HWY 127 stretching through 6 States.
I only saw a fraction of it and it was amazing. Among the treasures I scored were
some burlap coffee bean sacks which were perfect for my foot stool. 


Thank you for stopping by.

Winter Whites

 I have been reading a lot of inspirational quotes and I wanted to share one with you.

To live a creative life we
must lose our fear of 
being wrong.

I am in love with all the winter whites and grays.
So I decided to keep some of my 
Winter Christmas decorations up for now.

Bedroom redo

Bella and I did her room with an equestrian theme because right now she is all about horses. It's more like a redo. She didn't need new furniture so I just moved some of it around and added some horse shoes I painted and some horse pictures, trophy's and toy horses and of course new sheets with little horses on them. We (Bella) decided to put up her Christmas tree too. "I love it Mom." Is what she said and that made me smile.  I live vicariously through her when it comes to her room. It's the room I would have wanted when I was growing up. I am very lucky I can do that for her.

Thank you for stopping by have a wonderful day.

Bellas Birthday

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.
