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.
Since moving to our new/old home things have gotten very complicated. The rest of the family was already living here so instead of starting from scratch with a clean slate, I came into a house that had way too much already. My dad who also lives here had accumulated a LOT of stuff.
Most of it will have to go (read: garage sale in the spring) but some of it is useable. Point in case this lamp you see below. I found two of them and knew they'd be perfect for my daughters' room. Let's seen how I gave a new life to old lamps.
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.
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!
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.
