Here we at the end of the month, and that means it's Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge time. For those of you who are here for the first time, this is a monthly challenge that I participate in with my blogger friends who live all over the world. We meet up each month to compare notes and see how we do things in our corner of the world. Last month, we examined our epic hits and fails, and before that we shared our spring crafts.
This month we're all about the outdoors. With the weather warming up, at least in the northern hemisphere, because our Michelle is on the other side of the world, we thought it would be a good excuse to go outdoors and work on projects. In my case, re-purposing a tire rim into a unique wind chime

In my trusty old basement we have a whole lot of trunks. Not exactly what most folks have, but then again we are not most folks. We have traveled the Atlantic many times over. My husband's family and my own have moved to the US and back again. So it should come as no surprise that we have so many trunks.
In fact, I counted about five last time I looked. One of them got a makeover a few years ago with decoupage and became the Chivalrous Trunk. But the rest were in pretty bad shape. After years in the basement (where else would they be) it was time for a makeover! I had to drag this one upstairs to work on her.
As you may know I am an Old Fashioned Milk Paint Brand Blogger and I was curious to see if this true milk paint would work on metal. And so today I am going to show you how to revive a metal trunk with Old Fashioned Milk Paint.
A while back I shared some pretty pictures with you all of my son's bookcase transformation which you can see here. And many of you were wondering where all the books had gone. They are all safe and sound, thank you! But this got me to thinking. Many times we show you the pretty pictures but I bet you have no idea what goes on behind the scenes.
Well, today I am taking you to a messy, cluttered place. My home. Or should I say a blogger's home because it never looked like this in my pre-blogging days. Horrors!! What did I get myself into? How does my family put up with me? Join me as well take a look behind the scenes peek at the boondocks blog.
I am joined in this wacky adventure by some friends who are also super brave and will show you their "Behind the Scenes" reality. So don't go anywhere, you'll be able to see my blogging friends posts on the bottom of this post.
A month ago I hosted a Celebrating Spring Link Party with my blogging friends. We were all very happy to see that so many of you joined us. Today I'd like to share with you my features from the party.
For all the bloggers out there, I'd like to thank you for linking up with us. And for all the regular folks, enjoy all the inspiration that our blogger friends have shared with us.
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.
