I love a challenge as much as the next gal but I often over do it. I wanted to get my son a small table and chair set for his new home, which is quite old. Then we thought, it would be good to rescue something. So we went to Craigslist and found some freebies… Continue reading Rescued furniture
There isn't a pattern on this post, but if you search Google you'll find some. This was made by trial and error for my small head. This project took a lot of time, and was fiddly with the bulk of the cans once they were joined, so I don't think I would make it again.… Continue reading Gram’s Guinness beer can hat

Went with 2 coats of this paint, since it covers anything. This transfer is Midnight Garden by IOD. You line it up, rub… Continue reading IOD Transfer
Found some new pieces for this small space - a linen tower and a wall cabinet. They match and I'm quite happy with them. They aren't hard to put together, but I've heard nightmares about missing parts and things not fitting. I didn't have these issues. At night I do tend to leave the bright… Continue reading New furnishings
Dropping this "big kid" blanket in cheerful colors off to Project Linus. Loved working on it. Hope it's a comfort.🧡💙💚💛
