Today is one of the most exciting posts I've ever written. Can you hear me squealing in the background. Now this is something I don't do in real life, but since I'm on the internet I'll allow myself some liberties.
Today I am going to talk about - actually fangirl over - KariAnne of Thistlewood farms. She is one of my all time favorite bloggers and she does it all. She is a decorator, a DiYer and a photographer. But most of all KariAnne knows how to tell a story. Boy, can she tell a story! She can take the most mundane chore, like painting a door, and turn it into a monumental lesson in life. And with lots of chuckles to boot!
Now you are all probably wondering why I'm going on and on about KeriAnne. Obviously she inspires me! And I know I could never hope to reach her level of perfection. But I thought I would give it a humble try after seeing these chairs of hers.
After all chairs can be inspiring, right? This is the tale of the happy chairs.
With mother's day right around the corner I am scheming to get my kids to do right by me this year. I certainly cannot make a gift for myself! But I can ask my talented friends to share their amazing DIY gift ideas for Mother's Day with all of us.
Hopefully this will inspire some members of your family, and primarily mine, to get going and pamper mom on Mother's Day with a nice homemade gift or two. Because that's what this mom really wants!
Welcome to our Fifty-Fifth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
It has been a busy week. I cleaned out the closets and ended up with 5 bags of clothing to be donated. Woo hoo! And I'm not done yet! It feels so good to let go of things we no longer wear! I've also been spending some time at the farm, helping my husband a bit with the garden and planting trees. I hope you all have an enjoyable weekend!

Well that was fast! Where did April go? Another one for the books. April was a busy month for me. Between cleaning and Easter preparations, I even managed to take a week off. But my photos for all of you on Facebook never stop. And so here we are with this month's Facebook photos for April.
And just in case you have no idea what this is, I upload "a photo of the day" on my Facebook page here, every day and at the end of the month I present the best picked by you. This is my way of saying "thank you" to all of my followers. I have added the whole series on the bottom of this post.
As many of you may or may not know tomorrow is May Day. It is the traditional celebration of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It is also the International Worker's Day in celebration of workers and the working classes, which is celebrated in September in North America.
But today we are going to talk the flowery kind of May Day. Here in Greece, Tradition dictates that we go out into the fields and pick flowers. We then make a wreath and hang it on our doors.
Last year shared my May Day wreath. That happens to be my favorite wreath ever! I knew that there was no way to try and top myself so this year I gave myself a new challenge. I wanted to incorporate something into the wreath that we all have at home. And help the earth while I was at it.
I'll be sharing with you how to make May Day Wreaths with recycled materials.
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.
