I’ve tried my hand at decoupaging galvanized metal, wood, and plastic but until now I’ve never tried Mod Podge on glass. Today, I’ll show you how easy it is to take cheap spice jars and make them look like vintage apothecary jars. Last month, I ventured up to Asheville, North Carolina in search of antique stores in the area. Thank you to those on Facebook and Twitter that clued me in to The Antique Tobacco
I’ll be back later this week to show you how I made the HVAC air return cover from the hallway reveal. First, I’d like to share with you another project I did for our hallway last month. One of my favorite tricks when decorating our small home is using things that have two purposes. Usually before I buy something for our home is has to pass the “is it beautiful AND functional?” test. If the
”Ok Ma’am, put down the Mod Podge, slowly back away and no one gets hurt.” I PROMISE that I will not give you another decoupage project for a loooong time. If I do, I’ll just hide it and keep it for myself. I just can’t help it! It’s so simple and so immediately gratifying. I found a clock at the Goodwill for a buck and couldn’t pass it up.

It feels good to be be back to the blog! This past week and a half have been quite eventful. Our oldest son got a new-old car, I got a new blog-worthy camera, and my husband and I attended my 20 year high school reunion. This was my hot date for the night. There’s nothing like a good strong man that can carry you piggy back to the car after a party. Not because you’ve
First of all, I want to give a huge thank you to City Farmhouse for sharing my blog with her Facebook fans! I feel honored to be complimented by someone who has such an amazingly swoon-worthy home! This lucky lady has a view of the bay from her dining room windows. Staycation. Forever. Can you believe that the stores are already stocking Halloween decorations? I usually procrastinate on decorating for the holidays, but this week,
Like most women, I love jewelry! Not necessarily the designer variety. I just like variety! Nothing sets an outfit apart like a pop of color. Even a simple strand of pearls can give a basic T-shirt and jeans a bit of panache. My problem is that if I don’t SEE what I have, I forget about it. Therefore, the construction of a rustic but refined jewelry frame came to be. I also have a love
