Chalkboard

I recently shared my chalkboard over at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia (Thank you Kristin for having me!).  Here we go, just in case you missed it! I had been looking for the perfect frame/picture to create a large chalkboard. I found one recently while visiting my daughter and family,  I love thrifting with her. The frame was a cool color, … [Read more...]

While I was visiting Tennessee last month, I kept looking at something in the trash.  Thinking I could recycle it somehow. It's a porch post, with a rotted bottom. I used my Mr H's miter saw, to cut them in to manageable  pieces to bring back to Georgia. I had some great helpers! I glued some candle holders to the top and added a … [Read more...]

Bag in purse.

I was going through my closet dreaming of smaller days.  When I noticed this houndstooth skirt, I do love black and white!  I put it in the pile of the things to take to Goodwill.  I kept picking it up and thinking, I just love this print!  I know an Alabama fan that needs something made out of this.  If you have an article of clothing that you … [Read more...]
