Friday's Find #316: Repro Madrid Aqua Teacups and Upcycle


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! When I saw four of these pretty aqua teacups for $1.25, I couldn't grab them quick enough! Although they looked like Depression Glass, I suspected they were reproductions because I've never seen this color before. Keep reading to see what I learned plus how I upcycled them for the holidays...

Thanksgiving Greetings Plus Something New!


Thanksgiving Greetings Friends! I hope you are enjoying a sweet time with family today. I just want to take a moment to let you know I am thankful for you, and I appreciate the time you spend reading my posts and leaving thoughtful comments!

Did you notice the new look here on the blog? You'll see larger photos and if you hover over each section of the blush pink bar, you'll find a drop-down menu with organized categories for the blog posts you prefer. Bear with me as I am still tweaking some of the older photographs, but after the holiday, I hope you'll take a moment to explore the new features. Happy Thanksgiving!

15 Minute Dollar Store Floating Mini Pinecone Garland



Happy Monday, Friends! It's time for the latest 15 minute fix.
This year I've purposed to keep my Christmas decor simple. Instead of decorating with my large tree or nutcracker-inspired decor, I'm opting for several small nearly naked trees. I shared the first a few weeks ago featured in my repurposed sewing basket tree stand. I say "nearly" naked because I'll add mini lights and a tiny floating garland. Today I'll show you how to use mini pinecones from the dollar store to create this simple garland...

Yard Sale Sewing Basket to Repurposed Christmas Tree Stand: Friday's Find #314


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! At the beginning of the month, I attended a neighborhood yard sale. Does anyone else get a little giddy after parking curbside and anticipating several sales on the same block? At one of the first sales I visited, I saw this vintage sewing basket. I inspected it closely but then walked away because I couldn't think of the  "right" place for it. However, it only took me a few minutes to go right back to the $5 find and tell the seller I wanted it. This was one of those times a piece "spoke" to me before I was inspired how to use it...
