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.
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.
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.
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.
