There is just something so special about Christmas cards. I know we don't get very many anymore in the digital age. But when we do we need to have somewhere to display them. That's why today I am going to show you a super easy Display for Christmas Cards and Ornaments.
I had this piece of wood that I had previously used as a Halloween decoration but I also wanted to reuse it for Christmas. After all, for anything to survive in my home, it has to be multi-functional. I had painted this piece of wood using chalkboard paint and curated it by covering it with chalk. You can see a tutorial of that process here when I did my holiday signs.
We are officially into Christmas season! And that means I get to share my decorating with you. Let's start things off with my upcycled Christmas picture frames with wreaths the lazy way.
Today I'm going to show you just how sneaky I can be. I had this lovely set of Ikea picture frames over the sofa. For the past year they had housed Georgia O' Keefe, but when I had the Halloween party I wanted to add something frightful in them and so I opened them up and that is when this happened. I broke the glass in one of them.
Welcome to our Thirty-Fourth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends out there who celebrate. I made sure to save Paranoid Man Pumpkin and did not turn him into pumpkin pie! I also finally put the Christmas tree up this week. Because now is the time to start working on decorations and sharing all of my projects with you. Have you begun decorating for Christmas yet?

Many of you know that I live in a town in Southern Greece. Our farm is located right outside the town, which is situated on a plain between the Corinthian Bay and the mountains. Lately there has been a lot of activity near the farm. There is a new railroad being built and the station is located nearby. I happened to visit the other day and instead of the usual road I saw a mountain of dirt that led up to an overpass that will eventually allow the traffic to go over the railroad tracks.
Well, I just had to sneak on up there to take some pictures because it was a once in a lifetime chance for me. Anyway once the road is finished, the vehicles will mar this pristine view. This was my chance and I grabbed it. I may have been trespassing just a little but we won't tell! Let's walk up together and see the view from the railroad overpass.
Thanksgiving is just a few days away and I know many of you are getting ready for this most blessed of holidays. While we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Greece, I do take the time to celebrate it in my own special way.
Today I have asked the help of some very good friends. I'm sharing with you 12 colorful ways to help you prepare for Thanksgiving. Because Thanksgiving should be about decorating as well as food.
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.
