Dirt cheap DIY-Spring and Easter decor

I was on a roll being frugal with my Spring decorating. I decided to continue searching for items around this old home in our city for something I could use to make our home feel more like Spring and Easter. I found this in our garden. This glass dome used to belong to my daughter,…

 An Easter egg hunt in Tuscany and one DIY project- Yarn eggs

It is that time of year again…egg decorating. There are so many beautiful designs out there sometimes it is hard to choose one to try. This reminds me of the time my husband and I were visiting family in Italy one Easter. Our daughter was still a baby but old enough to show interest in…

DIY-Pretty Little Easter crosses.

Time for a plaster craft. This is one of my favorite DIY mediums to work in. I can’t help it, my grandma got me hooked on plaster crafting when I was a little girl. Every Easter I remember those fun times I had visiting grandma’s house with her plaster studio out back, full of molds…

Dollar day do over- faux butterfly frame art.

  Look what I found in a pile, hidden behind another pile, next to a basket of supplies, nicely stacked on top of some old watercolor paintings…an unfinished project of mine. You know, the fun thing about touching everything when you are downsizing and getting rid of stuff… it’s the treasures we all have forgotten…

A walk in the clouds…hiking an Arizona desert during a storm.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” Vivian Greene   Alright everyone, what I am about to share with you all is rare. Rare because usually when I post one of my hiking adventures it never and I mean NEVER happens during a storm. This…

One huge yarn haul = A whole lot of DIY’s

I am so bad and I was doing so good. Here I was watching all these YouTube tutorials and trying to make my life more like a minimalist, but hey, it isn’t easy. I am still trying to figure out what is or isn’t important. I have been trying to organize my home and life,…
