Playing with fall hydrangeas and a (very) blue chair


 One of the reasons I love fall so much is because it’s time to harvest hydrangeas once again. We have two fairly big bushes, so we’re never at a loss for new stock. Except if you leave them on the bush a little too long after they get crispy… whoops! I lost one good batch […]

Make the world’s easiest sandbag pillow… in minutes!


 This sandbag pillow project is soooo simple, it’s nearly embarrassing! But if you’re like me, and you like pillows but can’t find your sewing machine pedal, (best excuse yet!), you’ll love how easy this is. And it looks cool too.

A little burlap sandbag encouragement


Today I ran to our local hardware store and picked up 50 burlap sandbags. That statement I’m sure either has you so confused you don’t know where to turn or you totally get it so bad you wish you were there to snatch them up before me. These burlap bags are for the Out of […]

A $2 chalkboard, burlap and twine bulletin board


I was called upon from my church for a very special project. They desired to have a bulletin board of some type and asked if I’d be up to giving it a go. Would I! My premise with these kinds of projects is, use what you have. So here’s what I came up doing just […]
