A few months ago I shared my bedframe makeover with you. Many of you commented on how pretty the "wallpaper" behind the bed was. Well, I have a confession to make. It wasn't wallpaper at all.
Today I'm going to share with you what that thing behind the bed was and how I was able to easily warm up a room with fabric.
Spring is unofficially here, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the weather has warmed up. And to celebrate I have gotten together with my friends to host a spring blog hop.
And for spring to roll in, I'm showing you how to make a green wreath for spring. I have a whole collection of them here on the blog. Of course I was not always a wreath maker. You can see my first attempt here. It was not bad, but I think I've managed to improve a bit.
Today I have a super quick project. Now I know that normally I don't do these but in this case it was necessary.
My sweet daughter, the one of You Tube fame (although in my opinion she is doing everything to stay obscure, like those poor starving artists that will only get recognized later in life). Well she had made this t-shirt years ago.
Oh did I ever tell you the girls had a t-shirt business. The older one was in charge of the finances and the younger Miss You Tube, was the creative genius. She would sit there and painsakingly copy images onto t-shirts. It was a lot, lot of work, and she burned out after a few months of doing it. But it was her first taste of running a business.
Back to the t-shirt. Of course she's all grown up now and she doesn't wear it any more. She wanted to get rid of it. But I, being the proud mama, was not about to let her throw it out! Instead I easily repurposed it into wall art.
I don't normally do these types of posts but I just had to share this with all of you.
As you know I am in New York visiting my sons. The older one recently moved into his own apartment with his girlfriend and I wanted to give them a housewarming gift. They had bought a new couch with some generic looking pillows - no personality whatsoever. I wanted to get them handmade pillow cases with personality.
It is my favorite time of the month again when I get to join up with my besties and share with you another episode of The International Bloggers Club. This edition marks our one year anniversary since starting this special challenge and it has been an amazing hear full of fun projects and also a learning experience as we learn about each others' countries.
For those of you who are new here, we are five bloggers who live in different parts of the world and we share our projects and traditions from each of our countries. This month we are focusing on Valentine's Day and a Framed Heart Craft.
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.
