This tray/table always seemed too high to me. I’m sure it would make a great little statement somewhere, like a fabulous little bar or something, but where we need it to be, it’s just ridiculously proportioned. A resting cup of coffee often got knocked before it actually got to the resting spot and that led… Continue reading Gold and all that Glitters
After missing my peeps in the WordPress world and giving the own domain thing a whirl, I decided I am not the girl who wants to work the amount of work it takes to run my own kingdom. I have come back to the fold, people. I may change the theme in a bit, so… Continue reading Alice’s Bar Cart
PROBLEM. I can’t seem to find enough broken frankenstein globes to resurrect. This causes me to consider either finding a bulk globe website or perhaps figuring out how to make my own. That seems daunting to me either way. One sleepless night, which I seem to be having more of as I age let me… Continue reading Fly Me To The Moon
Here you go! Two! Count them, two quick and simple transformations for you patient followers. I do still have followers…right? Ok, excuse the before pic of my door, I did not have the foresight to take a before picture of my whole door like a professional blogger would (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking… Continue reading Quick Change Artist

You can check out what I did last month on my last post. This month it’s making something from dollar store finds.… Continue reading I Insist you GROW!
Here’s a pic of the unlovely little deck around the hot tub. I never wanted a hot tub. I even asked the seller to remove it to bring the price of the house down (she was going on and on about it and it’s virtues – I had to put a stop to it). But… Continue reading All Hands On Deck!
And Bouclair Canada sells it. And their customer service doesn’t care. #LAME That said, it looked good for about a minute. I look back at my blog post about using that wallpaper, and there’s a whole lota foreshadowing going on. I wish I had taken my own advice. If you want to see, click here.… Continue reading Cheap Wallpaper comes from the Devil.
I made this headboard a few years ago. The fabric was an attempt to just get the darn thing done, and I never liked it. I covered over it a few times with this and that, but none of them seemed quite right either. I thought I might tackle it again, and on a trip… Continue reading The Writing’s on the Wall
If you’ve ever done cross stitch in any form, you’ll understand how fun it can be, how relaxing and mind numbingly TEDIOUS! I saw these : I thought to myself, how do I do these in giant form in less time?? Ceiling grid tiles came to mind, but they are plastic and… Continue reading Cross Stitch on Steroids
I have been on the hunt for a globe like the ones I’ve been lamenting (ok if you look up the definition of lamenting, perhaps I am being a bit over-dramatic ) on Pinterest. I knew I could paint one up as good as the rest of them, the problem was finding one that needed… Continue reading My Frankenstein Globe
