DIY Drapery Hooks/Rings

Why leave home if you have everything you need on the workbench? That was my thought too.  12" of rusty wire did the trick when I needed to hang my drapes. 

Barrel Top Tray

About a month ago my dearest friends were purging things from their home and came across two half barrels that were literally falling apart.  They confessed that they thought about me and they...

Thank you guys! It was a fun project, even more fun explaining to hubby what I wanted to do. :) Tammy, that was already in the plans, how did you know? I think these candle logs will get a lot of use in my home. Donna, Yes, those are metal lined tea light.

Re: Upcycled Old Sewing Machine

Oh wow, oh my! Love it, how clever of you. I admire your ability to see beyond what was set before you and to see what others like myself would have completely dismissed. Simply Lovely.


Re: Vintage Sled Centerpiece

Absolutely fabulous...I love every part this design. It will be a sad day for me if burlap ever goes out of style...I guess that will be the day that I stay stuck in this period of decor, I adore working with it and decorating with it. I even painted my walls in shades of burlap! Your sled not only adds dimension to your tablescape, it adds charm, warmth and I'm positive it will stir up many conversations around your table this holiday season.
