Spring is such a wonderful time of the year. The flowers are a bloomin, the birds are chirping and the stores are all full of lots of fun items that we can craft with. I spotted these cute wooden gift bags at Michael's the other day and was immediately smitten!
Spring is also the time for gift giving to friends.
And while we are on the subject of gifts, Mother's Day is almost here.
Today I'm sharing my idea for gift giving with pretty wooden gift bags.
Sometimes good things come to those when they least expect it. I had been wanting to make a wall art decoration piece for ages but had never found anything that was right. Until the day I parked somewhere to wait for my dad and lo and behold...this!
I'm going to share how I made shutter art with a stencil the wrong way so that you can do it the right way!
It's been a while since my last photo essay, and I am here to rectify that right now!
This collection of photos is really random. Just shots I had taken throughout the course of the year that I really liked and want to share with you. The one thing that unifies them is that the point of view is always looking up at the buildings in Manhattan. And because this is Manhattan, they also happen to be luxurious and by extension expensive.
You can never have enough mirrors, right? That's exactly what I thought when I spotted this on the curb last fall. Today I am sharing how to makeover a curbside mirror find the lazy way.
In an attempt to get my life in order I have been organizing everything in sight. One particular eye sore has been the dining room which over time had collected all sorts of things that didn't belong anywhere else. Like bags of dog food and lots of cans. Below you can see the last of them but tomorrow there will be 24 more cans there.
It was really cluttering up the room and making it look very unfinished. I'm going to share how I easily organized the dog food with a bucket, and in plain sight no less!
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.
