So the other day my son looked at our front door and said "Christmas is over" I laughed nervously at him and said "Yes, but this is a winter wreath you see here" I had removed the "Merry Christmas" part and so it looked plenty wintry to me. He just gave me a skeptical look. Truth be told, it is still winter outside, I even had to shovel snow yesterday. But he got me thinking that what I needed was a change in attitude.
So for this month's Ten on the Tenth I've decided to make a new Spring wreath for the front door. The theme is, things that we love to decorate with all the time.
And for those of you wondering what Ten on the Tenth is well, it is a group of us blogging friends who get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Spring projects and the month before we shared Valentine's Day ideas.
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.
It's my favorite time of the month again, with 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 gift wrapping ideas, and the month before wooden projects.
And now with February right around the corner we are sharing our Valentine's Day crafts with you.
I had this old blanket that was sort of velour with a velvety finish. But it was very dark and very boring. I had it hidden away in the closet for many years.
If you are joining me from Ashley's blog Modern Glam I want to welcome you! Recently a few of my blogging friends suggested that we do a blog hop with a cozy theme and I knew that old blanket was the perfect candidate for this post. I really wanted to add a fun element to it. So today I am here to share with you how I easily transformed a blanket with yarn, to give it a bit of fun and fringe!
Stay with us till the end and you will see what the rest of my friends are up to.
It is 2018 and that means new things. I am so excited to share with you that I have joined a wonderful group of ladies who host a monthly blog hop with the theme "Ten on Ten". I can see you scratching your heads and wondering what that must be. Well, on the tenth of every month, ten of us will be teaming up to share different projects. So for the price of one... meaning me, you will also get another nine bloggers who share their projects and ideas on the same theme.
This month we decided to start the year running and dive right into Valentine's day. And so I present ten projects for a special Valentine's Day. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see the rest of the ladies' posts.
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.
