Happy New Year!
It’s good to be back!
As you know, I went on vacation to Maui over Christmas, then spent Christmas at home right after. No doubt. This was the most unique and fabulous Christmas I can EVER remember. I just may have to make this a habit…
Sooo… I have been posting, and…
Shared my best junk of 2016
And showcased my first project of 2017, that’s all about pipes, wood and coffee.
I always like to ask your opinions in the new year.
Is this link party still valuable enough to run?
Bloggers, do you get decent traffic from it? Do you read other linkups? What makes you return to THIS party vs. others?
Readers, are you even reading? 🙂 Would you miss it if it was no more?
If left running, would you like to see some changes? Leave it the same?
I invite any and all suggestions!
So bear with me as you read way too much babble below. I felt especially chatty today, since taking a link party break last weekend.
Here are some wicked cool highlights from our last party…
I always smile when I come across a Sarah project. Honestly, I think she waltzes into thrift stores, and picks up the one thing there are hundreds of that no one else wants, and flips them into must grabs just to tease the masses.
Do I want it? No. But after I get home… smacks head with hand…
Could you imagine if she actually worked in a thrift store? You’d have to rename it some high end home decor store after she got ahold of the loot!
This carousel card display is soooooo clever!
Thrifted scarf gift wrap, by Adirondack Girl at Heart
So clever… so clever. Scarfs in thrift stores all over will be in hot demand once this idea truly leaks out. Feeling slightly inclined to upgrade my sewing machine…
Mason jar rim chicken wire Christmas ornaments, by The Painted Hinge
I adore the challenge of decorating a tree for free. That makes this sweet idea using mason jar rims priceless! The chicken wire adds the perfect backdrop to display anything you wish.
Repurposed dress form jewellery stand into pin cushion, by Do It Yourself Inspirations
Would you believe I never wear jewelry? I don’t. Not even a smidgen. So a jewelry stand would never have been on my radar.
Until I saw this stand revamped into a pin cushion, that resembles a vintage dress form. So darling and genius!
Bedspring Shiny Brite Christmas tree, by Lora B
There is nothing quite like a well assembled junk project that auto flips into the Christmas spirit. And this simple, but outstanding idea would be it!
The Shiny Brites just make it pop, and give it a true, authentically vintage vibe.
After cleaning up my kitchen, it felt tired. As in, I just wanted to look at something new. 10 minutes later, this pipe and plank shelf transpired! I sure wish I could clean my kitchen that quickly. 🙂
Oh my goodness… Right before I left on my Christmas vacay, I dreamed up creating my own junk version of a Christmas sleigh. It never materialized.
Julie has officially encouraged me to do it for winter! These DIY sleigh signs are perfection. And I love that a sleigh can reach far beyond just the Christmas season.
Also perfect for those that can’t land any authentic sleighs or don’t wish to spend the big $ for them. They aren’t cheap in my region!
I LOVE an easy, reclaimed wood project, and these rustic angels are perfect! I could see hanging one up for keys or coats in an entry. So fun!
What did you make this past week? Best of posts welcome too! Link up below!
