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.
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.
If you visit me regularly you know that I love repurposing and upcycling. But I also love photography. And I especially love to share with you my Greece. Yes, "my Greece" because I usually shy away from the typical postcard beach pictures.
Today I'd like to share with you photos I took during our month-long Christmas celebration when my town was all decked out in it's finery. And a visit to my favorite shop. These are my favorites from around town.
What is this blog all about? Aside from photography of course. Yes it is all about repurposing and upcycling and today I have a doozy for you all. I am going to repurpose the coffee beans you see below.
Yes I will make a quick coffee with tealights craft.
Because who doesn't love the smell of coffee permeating the house?
Today I am getting together with some blogger friends in order to bring you a whole lot of Valentine's Day Inspiration and a link party. My contribution is a Valentine's Day Wooden Gift Box.
For all you bloggers out there add your Valentine's Day crafts. The party will be open till February 13th. And for the rest of you folks I know you will find lots of fun ideas here so you can create your own personal Valentines Day Craft. And we have plenty of time to get ready!
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.
Month long Link Party
