A few weeks ago my daughter's friend gave me a gift. It was a bag full of plastic bottles that were for tea. She knows what a recycler and repurposer I am and she was sweet enough to collect a bunch of them and bring them over. A girl after my own repurposing heart!
I had them hidden away with a vague idea that I'd do some sort of spring project with them. Little did I know what a mess that would turn out to be.
Today I am advising you on how to not decoupage plastic bottles with napkins.
As everyone must know by now, back in January I had visited my sons in New York. I spent most of my time at home cleaning, painting and rearranging everything. But one afternoon, I did manage to drag myself out of the house and go to Manhattan. I know it's not Michael's but it will have to do.
And so today I am sharing my photo essay on the Buildings of New York.
I imagine you all think of New York as being full of skyscrapers like this.
Welcome to our Forty-Eighth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
It is with great sadness that I must announce Katrin of KreativK and Keri of Repurposing Junkie will be leaving as hostesses of our link party. We all know how hard blogging is on a good day, but when you have a full time job or three little ones running around, it can be brutal. Join me as we wish Katrin and Keri the very best and a sweet good bye! And of course we will continue to support them on their blogs.
Please only pin from the original blog post, just click on the links below, they will lead you there! Thanks!
We will be visiting all of you who link up with us. We always appreciate your visits
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.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
A while back I had refreshed my older daughter's room. She is a lover of blue so we had painted the room a sweet shade of blue and made all sorts of small changes here and there. I had even done a tour of the room.
My daughter is a wonderful girl and but has very strong opinions about what she likes and what she doesn't. I had redone her chair in this post and dared to ask if I could redo the desk as well. Let's just say I didn't stand a chance.
My girl loves color in her room so I was really surprised that she was content with that boring desk. But she was adamant. No painting! So you can imagine my surprise when one day out of the blue she said "yes mom, it's time to paint it". And this is how the Fabulous Ikea desk makeover with chalky finish paint came about.
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.
