This month I have been feverishly working on the girl's bedroom. In fact I've added all the projects from this room at the bottom, so you can see them all together. I'm trying to put the finishing touches and also refresh some of the furniture I bought up from - yes - the basement.
This tired looking night stand had once belonged to my dad but lately it had just been taking up space. I thought it would make a nice addition to the girl's room. After all we can always use extra storage space! But first it needed to be repaired and revived!
Have I ever told you what a great gardener I am...not! I am the queen of killing plants. Not that I do it intentionally.
Even while living in Greece I could not keep flowers alive! I mean I could keep an aloe vera plant alive and even a yucca. But that's about it.
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 Spring but this month we are really looking ahead to container gardening, if and when spring decides to actually spring on us!
And now you are probably laughing because I just told you I am a brown thumb... inching close to black. But that has never stopped me. Today I'm going to show you how to fake a green thumb with this planter box idea!
Welcome to our One Hundred First Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
I cannot believe we have made it this far. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter last week and now I am getting ready for mine. In fact we are in the middle of baking and dyeing those eggs. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend with good weather, cause we cannot take that for granted.
Last week we held a giveaway to celebrate our One Hundredth Link Party and as promised we have a winner. Congratulations to Julie of Sum of their Stories for winning a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate!
The party starts on Fridays 11am EST or 4 pm GMT and runs until Tuesday. By joining us every week you will be able to grow your blog and gather inspiration from so many others who link up to our party. We hope you will join us every week to share and inspire with your projects and creations.
We will be visiting all of you who link up with us and sharing, pinning all that good stuff. We really do appreciate your visits.
Many of you may not know this but our Easter, for the Eastern Orthodox Church, is one week later than the Western Christian Easter. You see each year they change it around and once every four years we have it on the same day.
So we are celebrating Easter this Sunday for it is the holiest of holidays. And to celebrate I want to share the interior of Saint Andrew'd Cathedral with you. You may have already seen the exterior in this post. But I wanted to save the interior for a separate post.
I am a coffee addict! There I've said it.
I've had all my coffee stuff hidden away in the cabinets but when I get up in the morning I really don't want to have to look around to find my coffee making stuff. Now I had seen lots of friends making coffee stations and coffee bars and I really liked this idea.
This is what my makeshift coffee area looked like... meh!
It was inexcusable for me to have this mess. I needed to make something pretty right away!
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.
