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 that were made using wire. And the month before it was projects for gardening.
This month we are going to work with rocks or in my case pebbles. The beaches in my area in Greece are not full of sand but full of pebbles instead. So when I think of pebbles I think of the beach. I am going to use pebbles to inspire my love of the beach.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
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.
Father's Day is this coming Sunday! Have you taken care of your dad? Yes, your dad! I'm speaking mostly to the ladies of my age who have a senior citizen dad who is retired.
We always see lots of gift ideas for dads of the younger set but why not one for our own dads? My dad is 88 and he doesn't want an i-pad! Today I am sharing 17 practical gift ideas for the retired dad, because we should remember them and their unique tastes and needs.
This project came about, out of necessity. We have a spot next to our front door which is like a tiny porch, well it's not really a porch just a place to stand after you walk up the stairs to get to the door.
Anyway it was looking kind of lonely and empty... till I found this torn old rattan chair and got an idea to re-purpose it into outdoor decor and give the front of the house some curb appeal.
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.
