Mini Project: Making Contact

Mini Project time!
Enter our 12 year old night stand tables. They've moved to three new houses, even trekking across the country. And because of this, they are in pretty sad shape now.

And since they are in sad shape, it is perfect item to try something fun and cost-effective.

Sewing 101: Fringe Benefits

I had an "I can do that" moment... but then again... don't we all?

Whether it is criticizing your favorite sports team from your couch or seeing a Jackson Pollack painting, there is always someone who is arrogant enough to think they can do it too.

But, people... I really did think I could do this one. It is super cute and age appropriate and you can purchase it. See link below.


But I made it! I did it!

Hallowe'en Costume Repurposed

A few years ago our friends had an adorable costume made for our 1 year old. Being horror fans, they knew that we would absolutely put our daughter in a Freddy Kruger costume.

We of course had to complement that costume with other classic horror characters.
So, what do we with this awesome knitted onesie?

Smokey and the Bedroom

Our master bedroom is a work in progress. I found these great lamps that I refurbished, see post about that here... but it still needed something. Artwork!

So, I ask my husband what he thinks; what would he like to see at the head of the bed?

Mini Project: Kitty Batman

Mini Project time!
My husband received this gift from a funny friend. He got a laugh out of it, but ultimately, the shirt would just sit in his dresser, never worn.

Dining Room: Drab to Dazzling

Our dining room was boring. It featured a light wood valence with 1980s fabric vertical blinds within; a flowered ceiling fan with a special angel watering... something.

A few changes and the room looks completely different! As with all of our renovations, I only want to enhance the original vibe of the house, rather than try and bring it into the current decade.
