A Diamond in the Stuff Boutique

A Diamond in the Stuff Boutique

Through the last few years I have really enjoyed having my refinished furniture, re-purposed items, and crafts in craft/antique malls.

Cotton Boll Wreath {Tutorial}

Cotton Boll Wreath

I am a big big fan of seasonal and holiday wreaths. The truth is I had pretty much fallen out of love with my current Fall wreaths and I needed something new. While browsing Michael's (aka: getting sucked in to the crafting black hole) I spotted some very authentic looking faux cotton stems. I was inspired. And so my Cotton Boll Wreath was born! I picked up several stems or I may have cleaned them out entirely. Hey they were on sale! I happened to have a grapevine wreath on hand … [Continue reading...]

Three Tiered Succulent Garden

Three Tiered Succulent Garden

A couple months ago I posted about our Awesome Backyard Makeover and you may have spotted this beautiful Three Tiered Succulent Garden in some of the photos. I wanted to bring a little green onto our patio and I love succulents….mostly because I find it hard to kill them. So since two months seemed like […]

Thrifty Thursday #62

The other day on my facebook page I mentioned pulling off the road for some “dumpster diving”. Well if you were curious what I picked up….here it is! I spotted this headboard propped up against a trashcan at the curb. Of course I quickly pulled over and immediately got the 3rd degree from my kids. […]
