Life is amazing October 04 2012, 0 Comments

A year ago I was so disappointed when it didn't pan out for me to become a Mini stockist of Annie Sloan chalk paint. I approach things with a positive attitude and I knew that something better was going to come along. I had no idea it was going to be this good - Yep I'm so excited! Why you ask? The person behind all my excitement is a lady by the name of Kathy Van Gogh. Kathy is a decorative...

Today's Guest Blogger - Miss Molly Brown September 12 2012, 0 Comments

Hi!  My name is Molly Brown.
I'm 11 weeks old today and my human parents think I'm pretty smart.
I'm learning so much, like there is this big white thing with doors in the kitchen that my humans keep opening and food comes out of it! How kewl is that! This morning I tried to open it myself by biting it but that didn't work. Sometimes when it's open I can run in and lick the bottles on the bottom...

2012 the Year of Change August 12 2012, 0 Comments

2012 will be a year I remember forever!

I haven't posted lately and haven't worked on any projects for a while.  Come Fall I will have lots to share! I want to take the opportunity on this post to update the year so far.

The end of March we said good bye to our best friend and companion Buddy. We've had Buddy since he was 3 years old, he was a rescue dog. The term rescue dog is often misinterpreted,...

Bed and Breakfast Sign Knock Off June 18 2012, 0 Comments

I pinned this sign recently, I loved it and knew I had to make one!

This past weekend I was going on a Ladies Weekend to a friend's cottage and had been trying to decide what I would take as a hostess gift.  (insert light bulb turning on here) This sign would be perfect!!!
So I set out to start designing my version of this using Silhouette Studio.

This is a screen capture which shows how the type...

It's Pallet Time! June 09 2012, 0 Comments

When I saw that Funky Junk's SNS 138 was featuring Pallets and Reclaimed Wood projects I had to repost this project, it's one of my favs to date and I'm looking forward to doing more like it. I think it was a post that Donna did a while back on how to select the right pallet for a project that started my obsession. I'm very luck to have a good friend in the printing business and he now sets aside...

My Schoolhouse Obsession is still going strong! May 30 2012, 0 Comments

Wow! What the heck have I been up to lately?  It's been over a month since I have posted.  I haven't completed many projects lately either.  I suck!  I guess I have been spending too much time obsessing on School Houses and what I want to do when I grow up (I'll post more on that later)

I have blogged about my love of Renovated Schoolhouses before, recently my obsession has been on overdrive! As I...

Versatile Blogger Award April 20 2012, 0 Comments

Thanks to Barb from Turtles and Tails for nominating me for a Versatile Blogger award.

I really appreciate the nomination and the motivation since I haven't blogged in over a month.  I've been a lacking in motivation lately and I hate admitting it.
Thanks Barb! Barb and I know each other outside of the Blog world, we work together. I have really enjoyed getting to know another side of Barb through...

Coca-Cola End Table February 26 2012, 0 Comments

I threw this together with a few things we had around the house

Isn't she cute?

This project started when I was deciding where to store the metal tub that I'd purchased to put our Christmas Tree in.

I had this piece of glass on an old wobbly table that I put outside on the deck.  The base is garbage but I just couldn't bring myself to throw both the base and glass out.

I cleaned the glass and checked...

Picture Perfect Room ... The final reveal of our entrance February 24 2012, 0 Comments

Yay!  It's done.  Actually it's been done for a couple of weeks but I put up blogging about it so I could reveal over at Funky Junk Interiors SNS 122.

So, here's where we started ...

 Isn't it pretty?  I knew the open hanging rack had to go from the day we moved in.

This is what it looked like once inside the house looking back at the entrance porch.

Original Light.

Ahhhh! Now this is an entrance I'm...
