March update

 


Wow!  It has been awhile since I posted here!  The time has just flown by
in Florida.  Hubby and I have been playing alot of golf! I have also been 
doing a lot of repurposing too! I got some glass candlesticks at Goodwill and used them
as the base for the birdhouses pictured above.  The birdhouses themselves were on a 
chandelier I had made and used here in Florida.  But the wasps down here decided they
liked making their hives in these little houses so I had to change them out.  I used
the birdhouses to make these cute candlestick homes.  I did have fun decorating them with some moss
from Hobby Lobby.




I did jump on the bandwagon and make a tin can pocket.  I used the canned
Brown Bread can and then decoupaged the cute bird paper from Tim Holtz.  I love
how it came out.  The plus is my hubby loves Brown Bread!!

My sister in law got a new chandelier for her dining area.  They gave me what they
took out!!  I spray painted it pink- looks very Floridian. The picture below shows what
it looked like before I made changes to it!





May Update:  Wow!  I had this post ready to go in March and didn't post it !!  We
are now home in Maine.  What a shock - the weather had been cold.  But this coming week
it should be in the 60's!!  I will have a new post soon!!

Happy New Year!


I am a little late with my Happy New Year but not that late.  The card above was an SVG file from My Scrap Chick.  I love this card and it is so easy to put together. I think it screams Florida too!


I have been busy stenciling out outdoor patio.  I wanted to put and
outdoor rug out there but it doesn't get alot of sun so I didn't think I
would ever dry out.  So decided to stencil it!  I do love how it came out.
My knees are grateful that I finished it!!  Had to paint the cement with a
light gray first then stencil it. 

 

I decided to try my hand at making gnomes again. I used to
use rice in making the bodies but I used polyfil on these and
I find it a bit easier.  These are my Valentine Gnome girls. 


The nose is a tennis ball that is covered in panty hose. 


One girl has pig tails and the other has braided pig tails.  The hair
is from a Dollar Tree mop!
I will post again soon to show you the Gentlemen gnomes my
sister and I made while Connie was here visiting.  We had a fun visit ! While
they were here we went to Disney World for a week.  I will post some pictures 
of our trip too!  Take care and stay healthy!
