It is the best time of the month again. The time of the month that I always look forward to. Yes it is International Bloggers Club Challenge. We are a group of friends from all over the world who get together every month to share our projects and discuss how things are done in our countries. Last time we shared Valentine's Day Projects and the month before it was gift wrapping ideas.
This month we really wanted to challenge ourselves so instead of doing something that is normally done at this time of the year we decided we would try something new... new that is to each one of us. I chose to try my hand at Impressionistic art painting.
To see what my buddies chose to try their hands at, simply scroll down to the end of the post.
It is the tenth of the month and that means it is time for me to join my friends on Ten on the Tenth for another project. We get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Valentine's Day but this month we are really looking ahead to spring.
It may not be here yet, but that doesn't mean we cannot quickly add spring to our homes, by bring some flowers indoors - even if they are not real.
Many of you may be seeing a lot of Christmas posts out there, but being that I am a confirmed Autumn Lover I'm not ready to let go of fall just yet. During one of my recent walks around the neighborhood I picked up these pretty leaves you see below.
I just couldn't see not bringing them home to hold onto their warm colors. And hold onto them I did with this how to easily add fall in your home project!
For the past few days I have been opening the facebook news feed and been bombarded with pumpkins and leaves and apples and all sorts of lovely Autumn things. And it upsets me because I do not have Autumn where I am. And so I give you my obligatory post in praise of autumn.
Τις τελευταίες μέρες όταν ανοίγω το Facebook έχω βομβαρδιστεί με κολοκύθες και φύλλα και μήλα και όλα τα όμορφα πράγματα του Φθινόπωρου.
Sometimes you are so excited to get started on a project. In your mind you have it all planned out and you imagine these perfect results. But in reality it doesn't always work out the way you want it. Hence the title of this project. Because there is definitely a wrong way to upcycle vintage copper post, and I am going to show you!
This month I was challenged by my blogger friends to come up with a project using a thrift store find. The only problem is that there are no thrift stores in my town. Nada! Zero! Nothing! At least not any that I know of. And so I asked the ladies if I could find something from my basement which is really the best thrift store around! But you all know that!!
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their thrift store finds. So make sure you go all the way to the end and read my hard earned lessons too!
EDIT: The mystery of the lid was solved. You can read all about it at the end of the post.
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.
