I cannot believe I just typed that! Has it been two years already? Yes, it was two years ago today that I started this blog. In fact you can see my first ever post here. It didn't look like that when I first posted it. I had no photography skills to speak of back then. Time sure has flown by fast.
Last year on my one year Blogoversary I talked to you all about my life and how I came to be a blogger.
Today I'd like to review the past year and talk about what I have done and also share my favorite posts which by the way are not always the most popular. But more importantly I'd like to discuss what is important in blogging. I always manage to go overboard with these milestones, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and let's talk.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
Today I have a special announcement to make. I have been chosen to be one of the Brand Bloggers for the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company or OFMP.
When my husband visited the boys last year he went on a walk and came home with all sorts of goodies - actually the neighbors were moving. The mirror below was one of them. He told me "when you go to New York make sure to go to the basement and see what I have for you."
How lucky can a girl get? And so today I'll show you a mirror makeover with Old Fashioned Milk Paint.
By the time you read this I will be safely in my home in Greece. Yes I have left my sweet sons to go back home. But that does not mean that I did not wreak havoc behind me. I made sure to repurpose and upcycle a whole bunch of things.
But my biggest job was the dining room bookcases upcycled with chalky paint and gift wrapping paper. This was the mess in the dining room of my son's apartment. And it could only have gotten better after I got my chalk paint on it.
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.
