I have been shamefully quiet this past week. The hubby and I have been juggling a lot of balls in the air these last few weeks. One of the big changes that we have been dealing with is selling our house! It is very exciting! Anyone who has moved knows how much work is involved.Continue reading “Times are a Changing”
If you are looking for an easy way to zhuzh up a library or anywhere you have shelves, give this a try: Turn the bindings of the books towards the wall ( to be fair if you want to find a book, this is not the way to do it) so the edges of theContinue reading “Show-off Shelves”
Despite the fatigue from making my round table runner in macramé, I was still inspired to continue working in the medium. I think I enjoy keeping my hands busy at night while watching tv. So I decided to try my hand at a wall hanging. I see them in fancy designed homes and always wantedContinue reading “Macramé Wall Hanging”
Woohoo! The macramé table cover is finished. And to be clear, it is probably closer to a pot coaster than a round table runner. It is a little on the small side. But boy did it take time!
I was really hoping that I would be finished by the end of the weekend… But no, I am not. Sigh. To be honest this project is starting to drag on me a little bit. It is very time consuming, making little knots round and round and around. It’s not so bad when watching tv,Continue reading “Macrame Update”
I’m super excited y’all! It’s been forever since I’ve seen my parents. They live in NYC so of course we haven’t been able to see them because of the pandemic. Driving to Texas would have taken them about four days, but now that they are vaccinated they have decided to fly down. It’s a riskContinue reading “Guest Room: Before/After”
I decorated two more ceramic pots which leaves me with two left to go. The last set of lavender did just fine in the transition and just moved to the backyard this week. Hopefully they will do ok with the new temperature fluctuations and (hopefully) more sun!
After looking at how wonderful the lavender is doing, I decided it was time to give them room to grow. I want my pretty lavender to continue to flourish and hopefully flower! I love my plain white ceramic pots because they have so much potential, but there were no holes in the bottom. Luckily, theContinue reading “Painted Lavender Pots Round 1”
As a small gift to my MIL and SIL, I painted a pot for them each. They both enjoy gardening and having plants around the house, so I thought they might enjoy it. I used acrylic paint since it is pretty sturdy and water-proof and I found some pictures online of secret gardens and pineContinue reading “Painted Pots”
It’s about time! I was so excited when I found a “Hanukkah House.” A gingerbread bread house kit that had decorations for Hanukkah. Yet, somehow it took me over a year and two Hanukkahs to pass before putting it together. It actually took us two days to put it together as well, due to dryingContinue reading “Gingerbread House Memories”
