Trophies for Memorial Day Activities



Our family starts the  Memorial Day weekend festivities with a trip to the cemetery to decorate the graves.

This Weeks Yard Sale Treasures


Lots of good yard sales to check out over the week end!     I have plans to make a piece of yard art with the pretty lamp....maybe a bird bath.....

Lamp to Lantern


I have had a couple of lamps sitting in the garage for about 2 years...maybe more.    We've been cleaning and purging,  so I put the lamps in a box marked for donation.       I had bought them at a yard sale for $1 each and thought I would put a fairy garden scene in the base,  but ....... don't we all have projects that we never seem to get around to!

Bakers Rack Repurposed into a Bird Condo


I married a bakers rack with a couple of bird cages today to make a bird condo.    I enjoy making something new out of old stuff!!       The new "piece" is a lovely addition to a small corner on the back porch.

A Stroll Through the Park and a Look Behind the Scenes


I have a fun post for you today.
 I am going to take you on a stroll around the family room and also let you see the reality of how we really live on a daily basis!  
First I want you to see how carefully I cropped this photo of the family room decorated in a Art in the Park theme for the summer.

Fun Summer Fireplace Decor in the Family Room


H looked at me like I was crazy when I asked him if he would dig out my old white bicycle!     Are you going to ride it...he asked.         Of course not.....I need it in a vignette I'm doing in front of the family room fireplace.   H should get a medal for putting up with my craziness all these years....lol!

Open Furniture arrangement for Summer and New Slip Covers

I moved the furniture around in the family room to have it more "open" for summer.    This past winter,   the furniture was moved closer together for a cozy feel.

Junk Garden in an Enamel Wash Bowl

I have picked up several vintage enamel wash bowls over the years.       I think they looks so sweet planted with broken plates and  miniature plants.
