Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 517
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
This past week, I started cleaning again, and yes, I made a little headway as well as head down memory lane when I dug through a dresser HERE. While the memories slowed me down, they also made me smile. I love how things from the past can contour up such great feelings! Especially while cleaning…
I also had an exciting launch this week, sharing 5 new stencils… and I made this with some of them!
But you don’t have to be a biker to appreciate all the different looks these can take on… click the post to read all about them!
This past week, I also went on a rather exciting new train ride to Vancouver, BC, approx 1.5 hours east of where I live. It was for an appointment, but I also toured the streets of Gastown and other hot spots. It was a day I needed… and made me want more.
I really miss traveling but I’m so uncertain if this is the year to stay or run as fast as I can with everything that is going on in the world at the moment. Where do you stand on all that?
And just to further taunt me, as I’m tying this post, some ads for the area I was searching up came up through VRBO. How dare they… LOL I don’t think I can stay put guys… I just don’t.
So while I play round with travel ideas, let’s take a peek at some lovely highlights from last week’s party…
This week’s features
When Bliss decided on a room revamp, she doesn’t mess around. Look at that wall mural full of antique letters! And that chair!
Do you ship your talents, Bliss? Click the link for this cool story!
And then the perfect little project for spring comes up on my screen. This adorable strainer next on a chunk of picket fence is perfection. Click the blog post link for all the details.
While I have winter on my mantel still, Lora brings over this beautiful spring mantel, inspired by another’s. Great idea! I think I’ll be inspired by this one to start my own! Visit this beautiful post and see what inspired her! LOVE how that gorgeous mirror anchors the brick…
And if you weren’t in the mood for spring quite yet, you will be now! This lovely tea cup theme hung from vintage wood windows is so fresh, isn’t it?! Click the link to see so many other beautiful photos of this space!
As I scrolled Lisa’s delightful post, those little chicks gave me a lump in my throat. You WILL have memories of your past when you scroll to see all these sweet spring / Easter vignettes. Click to see many more! And get your tissues ready…
Well that was fun! And you all improved my mood a little! But I’d be happier if I was heading to Maui so can someone please tell me to just go? Thank-you.
