Vintage Glass on Mirror Tray for Bathroom

What do you do when your master bath is in desperate need of a renovation 
but you have to wait to tackle the projects one at a time as budget allows?
Simple: distract with pretty sparkly objects!

Wrought Iron Find

The text message went something like this:
Mom to Me >"I'm at the store; I don't know what this is, 
but it looks like something you would like. 
Do you want it?"
Me to Mom > "It's wrought iron--are you kidding? Yes!"
Mom to Me > "But what will you do with it?"
Me to Mom > "I'm sure I will figure that out." :o)
{to see what I did...read on...}

Hanging Succulent Bird Cage

you don't necessarily need a green thumb to grow them.
If you happen to be 'forgetful' about watering them..they still love you.
My mom's green thumb is in the HD category.
  Her succulents happen to glow.
Take a look at her hanging bird cage full of beauties...

Wild Summer Blackberries

We have the best of both worlds.
While we don't live in the country...
...a little bit of country is a part of our new home neighborhood community.
Just around the corner are bike trails edged with wild berries....
This past week, the berries turned beautifully ripe for the picking.
see what we were able to make...

Wingback Upholstered Chair-rescue

"...it’s not my fault that the universe 
In fact?  It is OUTSIDE MY CONTROL."

I relate to this sentiment completely.  
For example, this chair...
I was minding my own business...happened to pull into a local thrift store....

Where to put all those cute glass magnets from our glass
magnet project we made last month?
We needed a place to use them!
So we created this fun message board out of sheet metal from the hardware store;
framed it with moulding; And of course
....Painted it pink to coordinate with my girl's room.

Gluten Free Banana Pancakes-Yum

Can you smell them?  Steaming hot off the griddle? So yummy...
Oh to wake up on a Saturday morning and enjoy fresh 
pancakes and a hot cup of coffee!
Unless, of course, you struggle with gluten...
Have no fear...the best darn GF pancakes are here! 
 I gleaned this from several different gluten free recipes. 
It's easy and you don't really need to follow exact measurements.  
It's an "eyeball recipe"...my favorite kind!
