My knock off is my favorite online catalog.
I’ve been knocking off their products for years. I don’t feel too bad because I a big customer too!
Wait is that a delivery truck outside!!!
It’s raining today in Arizona! So I thought I would sit on the front porch and write a quick Country Design Keeping post.
There’s still a ton of happenings I think you will enjoy.
Plus come “visit” and “DIY” with me “live” online tomorrow!
I have the opportunity to join a creative group of furniture makeover—ers!
I get to share their talents here with you…and learn things along the way.
This project moved me to step out from my usual style.
I had two “design assistants” for this project. They’re both two toned now!
It’s fall ya’ll!
Add…it’s the Festival of Fall Tour time.
I’m blessed to have a wonderful group of creative blogger friends that allow my “outta the box” DIY projects to join their beautiful fall inspirations.
Let me know if I toned down my DIY for this tour, okay?
Mike might think differently!
Heading out to buy clothes, shoes, groceries…ugh!
and I’m there…
This last Saturday was Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market in Scottsdale.
In Arizona it’s hard to find vintage goodness. When you do find a great chippy old window, or old barn wood you’re going to pay quite a bit.
Today is The Best of the Best of DIY Link Party!
And I’m thrilled to be included in the group of such talented and inspiring ladies.
If you love Shabby Chic, Vintage or Farmhouse styles and re~purposing and DIY home projects…
...this is the place for you!
Everything will be here from painting furniture, remaking furniture, crafts, seasonal ideas, all…The Best of the Best!
Today I’m sharing a new project in one of my old styles for my Best of DIY.
I had an amazing idea and I needed pecans!
Not to eat…
although that sounds good too,
but to decorate the cabin for autumn.
My amazing idea started with…
I’ll be nervous! Can you hold my hand??
But it’s for a wonderful cause.
The Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals.
The Humane Society of Central Arizona’s Thrift Shop and Vintage Boutique will have yours truly giving furniture painting demonstrations on October 4.
I’ll need a table set up, displays, painting tips…oh my!
I’m asking for your opinions on CDS Facebook page as things come up for the event. Make sure you’re following.
Learn from my mistake!
An easy project everyone can try.
Fall decor that’s not my expected color.
I get to share them all today along with 18 creative blogging friends on the Fall Home Decor Tour!
Isn’t a smile wonderful. Simple, lights up the whole room and makes FUN projects.
A smile makes your tummy feel good!
I wanted to make pumpkins using an orange cable knit wool sweater. So off the the thrift shop for the perfect orange cable knit wool sweater. Four thrift shops later…no orange cable knit wool sweater.
I stopped smiling…but only for about three minutes and another idea hit me.
This project is soooo easy…
you don’t even have to clean your paintbrush!
And I don’t like cleaning my paintbrush…as you can see! :/
But I do like easy
I like the phase, “In someone’s keeping.”
This would be a place and time for housekeeping.
Not the dusty, piles of laundry, and dried on food dishes kind of housekeeping! Yuck!
Just a post with a collection of small things that by themselves are not quite enough for a whole post.
On the first Monday of each month this year I’ve redecorated the same grapevine wreath. You can see all months do overs below. I’m also not purchasing anything to add to each wreath. Using only things I have on hand.
September is a fall, almost! When I think of a fall wreath, I think of burlap. I have burlap!
I started upstairs for the burlap, and then rethought.
What about something different???
