The other day the hubby made a barrier door for the irrigation at the farm. It basically looks like a giant picture frame. But, he came home and told me it did not fit properly. I've been wanting to make some sort of wall art for a while and when he told me the bad news (for him) I was ecstatic at the thought of inheriting this big old frame to make Seaside Art. After all what sort of a home is this that is near the beach but has no Seaside Art? Well as luck would have it, he came up with a solution and was able to save his door.
Which left me with nothing!
No Frame, no Seaside Art from a hidden treasure in the dresser.
Until I spotted this piece of plywood in a corner.
Την άλλη μέρα ο σύζυγος έκανε ένα φράγμα για την άρδευση στο αγρόκτημα. Μοιάζει ουσιαστικά με μια γιγάντια κορνίζα. Όμως, ήρθε σπίτι και μου είπε ότι δεν εφαρμόζει σωστά. Θέλησα να κάνω κάποιο είδος τέχνης για τον τοίχο και όταν μου είπε τα άσχημα νέα (για αυτόν) ενθουσιάστηκα με τη σκέψη ότι θα κληρονομήσω αυτή τη μεγάλη κορνιζα για να κάνω παραθαλάσσια Τέχνη. Μα τι είδους σπίτι είναι αυτό που είναι κοντά στην παραλία, αλλά δεν έχει καμία παραθαλάσσια τέχνη; Οπως το'φερε η τύχη, βρήκε μια λύση και έσωσε την πόρτα του.
Όπου με άφησε με τίποτα!
Ούτε Κορνίζα, ούτε παραθαλάσσια τέχνη από έναν κρυμμένο θησαυρό στο συρτάρι.
Μέχρι που εντόπισα αυτό το κομμάτι κοντραπλακέ σε μια γωνιά.
I have been back in the USA for almost a year and yet I have not done a patriotic project. Oh I have a flag or two in the house. But with the Fourth of July coming up I felt it was time to create something a little special.
Today I am sharing with you how to make easy patriotic art with fabric scraps. Because the flag looks great outside, but we shouldn't neglect the interior of our homes.
It is my favorite time of the month, the 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 projects for gardening. And the month before it was projects with fabrics.
This month we are going to work with wire. I always like a challenge and this one certainly had me in a whimsical kind of mood. I chose to make a unique mobile with re-purposed wire hangers.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
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.
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.
