It's been a while since I shared any photo essays with you all. What with the move to New York and my being so busy getting all settled and then getting ready for the holidays.
But I am going to correct that today. Now you may not know this but I grew up here so there are very few things that would surprise this veteran New Yorker. I have seen it all and gone up to the highest buildings...and I've spent half of my life in the train system, below and above ground.
But I had never walked on a train line...till now!
I am taking you with me on a tour of the High Line in New York. It is a long post but so worth it.
Below is the entrance to the High Line on 34th Street in Manhattan.
It's my favorite time of the month, time for another edition of International Bloggers Club. We are a group of friends from all over the world who get together every month to share our projects, compare notes and see how we do things in our corner of the world. Last month we shared wood projects, and the month before flatlay photos of our favorite things.
This month, with the holidays right at our doorsteps I am going to share 3 simple gift wrapping ideas of the holidays.
Welcome to our Eighty-Fourth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
I just had the most filling Thanksgiving! The turkey came out great, we also had stuffing and pumpkin pie, along with way too much of other side dishes. I think we will be continuing today. I hope you all have a great weekend and be careful of those shoppers!
We kindly ask that you do not add your link parties to the linkup, otherwise we will have to remove them.
The party starts on Fridays 11am EST or 4 pm GMT and runs until Tuesday. By joining us every week you will be able to grow your blog and gather inspiration from so many others who link up to our party. We hope you will join us every week to share and inspire with your projects and creations.
We will be visiting all of you who link up with us and sharing, pinning all that good stuff. We really do appreciate your visits.
With the holidays right around the corner I thought it would be a good time for me to share my wish list of gift ideas. Now I have never done this before, but I had lots of fun coming up with what I would like in the course of my day. And I think if you are like me then you will find something here too.
That's why this is a Practical, as opposed to extravagant, Holiday Gift guide for the DIYer!
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.
Today I am sharing with you another repurpose of a picture frame that I made into easy wall decor for the holidays.
I started out with this simple plastic frame. It was cheap plastic but I was determined to make it something special - something gift worthy.
I would also like to invite you to visit my friends at the Creative Christmas Link Party below.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle 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 and New York.
