From Cans To Vases

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I have a habit of saving jars,bottles and cans, I'm always thinking... hey I can make  something out of that. Mostly I just save them in a box in the shed. Well for some reason I've been in a crafting mood lately, so I decided to try and actually do something with a couple of cans. I had a large can that I wanted to turn into a vase. I bought  wallpaper that looks like tin ceiling tiles for my kitchen and then I saw another tile pattern that I liked better. I decided to use the original roll for crafts. Light bulb moment!  I'll wrap some of that paper around a can. Then I decided to add ribbon and a little bling and came up with this.

Romantic Dreams

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

I've wanted to make a Romantic Dream Catcher ever since I saw these. When I heard there was a pool noodle party I thought hmm maybe I can use one to make a soft romantic style dream catcher.

 I started with a blue pool noodle from the Dollar store, I split it down the middle and cut off about a three inch wide slice

It's Summer Time

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I decided to do a summer vignette on my favorite surface to play with, my buffet.  This thing has turned into my own little decorating lab. A small house makes you get creative with what you have. It's a fun challenge to try and keep things interesting but not cluttered and busy in 1200 square feet.  I kind of wanted it a little beachy but not in a typical way. I drove everybody nuts moving and changing things about a million times.

New Finds

Friday, June 8, 2012

 I've been in a slump for several days. I've started a few projects and have completed none. I have however been shopping! Shopping is my therapy, when I'm sad I shop, even if I don't actually buy anything, it makes me feel better to be around beautiful things. I even love going on virtual shopping trips with fellow bloggers. Post that take us along to flea markets and fairs make me really happy. Since I don't have a completed project  to share I thought I would show you some of my new thrift store purchases.  The first thing is this pretty tiered tray.
