Today was about a small update to the fireplace screen. It's just a shed and the fireplace is fake, but it's my happy space. Sanded the old one lightly, since it's mdf. 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.🧡💙💚💛
Too hot for Irish coffee
This has been a very hot summer, record heat, so it's a good thing my main interests are mostly indoor ones. We have our morning gardening though and it's good to see so many bees out there. Today, we harvested cucumbers, tomatoes, chives to create some sort of side dish for grilled burgers. Reaching for… Continue reading Too hot for Irish coffee
I received a broken fairy. I didn't expect her to be great, but as a Grammie, I really wanted her for my granddaughter's visit this summer. That's a pretty nasty break. A bit of e6000 should hold. At first I was looking to make a return, but the seller offered a refund for all but… Continue reading Fairies gather…
Roses for spring
Restful weekends, catching up with home and the homies living in it. The week is busy, Sundays are for my least strenuous tasks. Today I changed sheets, made waffles, and freshened the hummingbird feeders (daily when it's warm). The middle of the day has been in the she shed, enjoying a cool breeze on a… Continue reading Roses for spring
Peanut Butter Jelly time!
Made these for someone who eats PBJ everyday and they like silly stuff. Before gifting, a quick photo session in the spring green grass. They loved these. Happy crocheting!
Rest, a very Good Friday
The company gave a surprise day off today. I've been so tired and in need of a PTO day, or a few, so I'm grateful for it. I slept in, ran an errand, and now am enjoying some tea in the shed. I've also been watching a mama bird invade my new fern. *sigh* I'm… Continue reading Rest, a very Good Friday
Easter in the bunny hutch
Just some photos of teaware and bunnies that came out today. Tomorrow already feels like a tea and cake day. Lefton Irish Lace teapot @ 1990s among some unmarked pieces. Grace's Teaware teapot + egg cups, Pottery Barn bunny plates, unmarked vintage handled s&p bunnies. I always try to find the whole service. It's fun… Continue reading Easter in the bunny hutch
Shamrock teapots, plates and more
A few photos of the shamrocks ☘ and clovers 🍀 for March. We'll be having corned beef with brown bread and Guinness. The towns have canceled (again) the Irish fest and parade, but hopefully for the last time. The live music is my favorite part. Happy St. Patrick's Day! My hutch of shamrocks ☘ for… Continue reading Shamrock teapots, plates and more
