I had this old blanket that was sort of velour with a velvety finish. But it was very dark and very boring. I had it hidden away in the closet for many years.
If you are joining me fromAshley's blog Modern Glam I want to welcome you! Recently a few of my blogging friends suggested that we do a blog hop with a cozy theme and I knew that old blanket was the perfect candidate for this post. I really wanted to add a fun element to it. So today I am here to share with you how I easily transformed a blanket with yarn, to give it a bit of fun and fringe!
Stay with us till the end and you will see what the rest of my friends are up to.
It is 2018 and that means new things. I am so excited to share with you that I have joined a wonderful group of ladies who host a monthly blog hop with the theme "Ten on Ten". I can see you scratching your heads and wondering what that must be. Well, on the tenth of every month, ten of us will be teaming up to share different projects. So for the price of one... meaning me, you will also get another nine bloggers who share their projects and ideas on the same theme.
This month we decided to start the year running and dive right into Valentine's day. And so I present ten projects for a special Valentine's Day. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see the rest of the ladies posts.
I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year!!
It is the time when we take stock of the past year, look back on what has been, what we could have done differently, and also what went well. It is also an opportunity to look ahead to 2018 and think about what we want for the near future.
As you all know I had a very eventful year, in fact it felt as if a tornado blew in and rearranged everything. But now I am settled and looking forward to many changes for 2018. There will be no more pomegranates. It is time for some new traditions!
There will also be some changes on the blog. ;)
I just wanted to pop in for a moment and wish everyone a very Merry and most Blessed Christmas. And very Happy Holidays!
Too often we forget about the true meaning of Christmas and get all caught up in the other aspects of the holidays. And it is always a good idea to try and slow down a bit and savor the moment. That is what I am planning to do with my family and I hope you are too. New home and new traditions!
Again, I thank you all for your support throughout the year! Enjoy this most special of days.
A little over a month ago, I along with my blogger friends hosted the Holiday Link Party. We were so lucky to get such a huge response from so many of you. And now it is time for us to share our features. And like the Twelve days of Christmas my features are also twelve.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
