Spring is unofficially here, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the weather has warmed up. And to celebrate I have gotten together with my friends to host a spring blog hop.
And for spring to roll in, I'm showing you how to make a green wreath for spring. I have a whole collection of them here on the blog. Of course I was not always a wreath maker. You can see my first attempt here. It was not bad, but I think I've managed to improve a bit.
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.
Thanksgiving is just a few days away and I know many of you are getting ready for this most blessed of holidays. While we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Greece, I do take the time to celebrate it in my own special way.
Today I have asked the help of some very good friends. I'm sharing with you 12 colorful ways to help you prepare for Thanksgiving. Because Thanksgiving should be about decorating as well as food.
The other day while in the basement I found a few of these pieces of wood. They are very thin. I've an affinity for Chalkboard and I wanted an easy project and I thought I could turn them into easy Chalkboard signs for the holidays.
Because let's be honest I am procrastinating when it comes to putting up that tree. It seems that Christmas decor is so much more than just the tree. A few signs here and there will add a fun element to the holiday decor.
And we have finally reached the day you have all been waiting for. Paranoid Man goes to the Halloween Party! Happy Halloween!
Yes, we had the party that I've been preparing for the last two weeks. This is something that I had totally not expected would happen at the start of October. But that is the way with blogging and with life. One thing leads to another.
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.
