Happy St. Patrick's Day

So, I know my neighbors probably think I'm a bit of a freak with my seasonal decorating, but I can't help myself. This is the second year for my little leprechaun and I tweaked it a little by adding a rainbow. It's not exactly what I had in mind, but it will work. Next year I think I'll cut a rainbow out of wood with my jigsaw, just so my neighbors know I'm truly nuts. 

This little leprechaun wanted to get in on the action when he saw the camera out.

I'm thankful for my home

Wow, the devastation on the East Coast reminded me just how thankful I am for my home.

I have been eager to start Christmas decorating, but I always like to wait until after Thanksgiving.

I need November to ponder all the blessings in my life.

Happy Halloween

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, Halloween is a favorite.

It snuck up on me this year. I didn't even get a chance to get my spider webs out.
I did get a few spiders in though. I hope you have a very sweet Halloween.

I survived the Michigan Antique Festival

Rain threatened periodically, but all in all it was a fun weekend at theMidland Antique Festival in Midland.
Here's two items I bought and refurbished just days before packing up my borrowed van. I'm glad I did because they sold almost immediately.

Now I'm getting stuff done

Here's a sampling of projects I wrapped up today. I liked the tall basket I did so much I decided to make a few smaller ones.

I also turned a discarded drawer into a table and used a vintage BIngo box on the top. I was going to make feet for the table out of old pool balls, but I only had three. Luckily I had some cute metal legs that I had taken off another project. I painted them red to go with the top.

Last but not least, I made over a shopping cart...I think it would make a cute hamper. Hopefully someone will buy it at the Michigan Antique Festival next weekend and stick a lot of other merchandise in it too!

Basket love

I love how this basket turned out. Thankfully it doesn't really match my house or I'd be in danger of keeping it. You can't make money if you never sell your stuff.
