We are officially into Christmas season! And that means I get to share my decorating with you. Let's start things off with my upcycled Christmas picture frames with wreaths the lazy way.
Today I'm going to show you just how sneaky I can be. I had this lovely set of Ikea picture frames over the sofa. For the past year they had housed Georgia O' Keefe, but when I had the Halloween party I wanted to add something frightful in them and so I opened them up and that is when this happened. I broke the glass in one of them.
The Halloween party is just a week away and I've been working feverishly on my wall unit making sure everything is just right. Oh, I know I had mentioned in my video the other day that I would add reds, but in fact I seem to have stuck to neutrals mostly. Let's take a quick tour and see my Halloween Wall Unit Decor.
I am including a small video towards the end of the post showing all of this and explaining it in more detail.
Last spring... yes. I did just say that? I was looking over my friend Carol's blog, The Red Painted Cottage and she had a very fun post where she visited Magnolia Market. The one owned by Joanna and Chip Gaines, the hosts of The Fixer Upper.
As I was looking through her lovely tour my eye spotted something near the window. It was a decoration made from egg cartons.
Well you know the hoarder in me just jumped for joy! Finally I had found something useless to repurpose! And so began my adventure to collect as many egg cartons as I could in order to make this project which you are about to see. Today I am going to show you how make easy fall flowers using egg cartons.
If you follow me at all, you have seen my attempts with Paper Rolls made into hearts and other strange things.
It's Back to School time for some of us, and for some others, well it's next month but that doesn't mean we can relax. No, we still need to get the kids rooms in order and to organize their things. With this in mind, I have teamed up with my blogger friends and come up with some fun ideas to help you all get ready for back to school. Today I will show you how to make a back to school hanging organizer.
Το σχολικό έτος αρχίζει για κάποιους από μας τώρα, και για άλλους τον Σεπτέμβρη, αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι μπορούμε να χαλαρώσουμε. Όχι, χρειάζεται να βάλουμε τάξη στα δωμάτια των παιδιών. Με αυτή τη σκέψη, έχω συνεργαστεί με φίλες μπλογκερ να σας δείξουμε μερικές διασκεδαστικές ιδέες για να βοηθήσουν να ετοιμαστείτε για το σχολείο. Η συνεισφορά μου είναι πώς να φτιάξετε έναν κρεμαστό διοργανωτή.
It is August, and that is usually the time of year we go on vacation or in my case, since I live near the beach, just relax a bit more. But not this year! This year I am busy working my fingers off to come up with fun posts for all of you folks who come here to see what I am up to in this crazy heat. Today I am going to show you a quick upcycle that I did right after I finished my doily top side table. Because, really it is too, too hot to do much more (and you all must be sick of hearing me complain about the heat). And so five minutes to a pretty clock.
Είναι Αύγουστο, και είναι συνήθως η εποχή που πάμε για διακοπές ή στην περίπτωσή μου, αφού ζω κοντά στην παραλία, χαλαρώσω λίγο περισσότερο. Αλλά όχι αυτό το χρόνο! Φέτος είμαι απασχολημένη με αναρτήσεις για όλους εσάς που ερχόσαστε εδώ για να δείτε τι κάνω μεσα σε αυτήν την τρελή ζέστη. Σήμερα θα να σας παρουσιάσω μια γρήγορη ανακαίνιση που έκανα αμέσως μετά που τελείωσα το τραπεζάκι με σεμεδάκι μου. Διότι, πραγματικά είναι πολύ, πάρα πολύ ζεστή για να κάνω περισσότερα. Και γι 'αυτό χρειαζομαι πέντε λεπτά για ένα όμορφο ρολόι.
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.
