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.
Spring may not be right around the corner but after such a harrowing winter I think we could use a little pick me up!

A few days ago I was looking over my Most Popular Posts for 2018 and realized that I use old clothes quite a lot.
I am not a fan of throwing things away, in fact that's what this blog is built on. Clothes in particular, hold a special place in my heart because they have such pretty colors, patterns and interest in general. It got me to thinking that I should share all that with you. I went over my projects and came up with 15 ways to re-purpose old clothes into something new.
Now that the Christmas tree is decorated, it's time to take care of all the other areas of the house. I like to decorate the bookcases that are in the living room. Adding lights makes them super festive and creates the best nighttime mood.
But I don't decorate with just anything. I am going to show you how to reuse old decor to make bright Christmas vignettes. Because pretty can be made from just about anything. Even if you don't know where it came from!
A happy November to all! I hope you've all taken out your sweaters and winter clothes. The first thing that comes to my mind after I put all the Halloween decor away is how to decorate for Christmas. You may say it's too early, but in fact, it is just the right time to start thinking about Christmas. In our home it is a grand affair, not just a tree, so planning has to be done in advance. Done by me, that is, because no one else will bother with all this stuff.
So let's kick the Christmas planning off with a tutorial on How to Make a Christmas Wreath with Metallic Accents.
