The other day I was feverishly cleaning up the living room in order to take a nice photo of the coffee table for my epic hits and epic fails post. As I was cleaning I noticed a blank canvas on the wall, above my chivalrous trunk. What was this I wondered? And why was it here?
It turns out my daughter had left it there after one of her video shoots. I don't know what that means but who am I to argue with artists!
I really liked the way it looked next to the black display and the sand colored wall. I decided I'd leave it there but it did need a little something. And so I stopped the cleaning and followed my muse! That was how I got an idea to make a simple canvas art with keys.
It's that time of the month again when I get to participate in the International Blogger's Club Challenge. For any of you who don't know, we are a group of friends who get together once a month to participate in a challenge and to talk about our countries, since we are international.
Last month we did a challenge on Spring crafts and we have also done spring before. So this time around we chose an entirely new to us project. We are going to show you our epic hits and epic fails, chosen from our past projects as bloggers. Some of these are not very popular so you may be seeing them for the first time.
Welcome to our Forty-Ninth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
I've been having a few difficult days here. My blog is acting up on me. You can comment but unfortunately I cannot comment back. Please bare with me and the tech people till this is sorted out. Thanks for your patience and hope I'll still be in one piece next week... this is so nerve-racking!
Since the number of hostesses has been reduced, we will each be featuring two posts from now on. Enjoy your weekend.
Please only pin from the original blog post, just click on the links below, they will lead you there! Thanks!
We will be visiting all of you who link up with us. We always appreciate your visits.
A few weeks ago my daughter's friend gave me a gift. It was a bag full of plastic bottles that were for tea. She knows what a recycler and repurposer I am and she was sweet enough to collect a bunch of them and bring them over. A girl after my own repurposing heart!
I had them hidden away with a vague idea that I'd do some sort of spring project with them. Little did I know what a mess that would turn out to be.
Today I am advising you on how to not decoupage plastic bottles with napkins.
As everyone must know by now, back in January I had visited my sons in New York. I spent most of my time at home cleaning, painting and rearranging everything. But one afternoon, I did manage to drag myself out of the house and go to Manhattan. I know it's not Michael's but it will have to do.
And so today I am sharing my photo essay on the Buildings of New York.
I imagine you all think of New York as being full of skyscrapers like this.
I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
