Throwback Thursday - Girly Girl Room

Vintage, Paint and more... cute girls room furnished with recycled/upcycled painted furniture and crafted decor items

Two years ago we moved to the house we are living in right now.  Miss A had outgrown all of her furniture as children do and needed a whole new makeover done for her room.  I have done each and every one of our granddaughters rooms - and it was her turn.  After discussing it she decided she wanted a pink girly girl room.  So, I set out making a girly girl room - first by pinning lots of ideas onto my  Miss A's Space Pinterest board.  If you go check it out you can see where lots of our inspiration comes from.  This room is filled with lots of  DIY and craft ideas as I made or recycled almost everything in here.  This post is also filled with lots of pictures of what we did DIY and shows you what you can do on a tight budget.

Hometalk - DIY Kitchen Sign Inspriation

About six months ago I was talking with one of my blogger friends Kathe at Kathe With an E and she suggested that

 would be a perfect place for me to share my projects.  I took her advice and I have to say I have Fallen. In. Love.  with this site.

                                                            Find me on

I love the fact that I not only can share my projects with others but I can find so much inspiration from all the DIY Home and Garden projects found there.  And if I have a question about a particular process or project I can ask it there and someone will surely have an answer or point me in the right direction to find it.  It is also a great site to collect ideas you may want to use in the the future or refer to at a later date.  All you have to do is click on that project and add it to a board you have created.  Easy peasy and always there for you to find again.

So you can imagine my excitement when Liz from Hometalk contacted me and asked me to curate a

 "DIY Kitchen Sign" board for Hometalk. 

 I was ecstatic.  And, it was so much fun to see all the great ideas and inspiration put into these awesome signs.

DIY Kitchen Sign Inspiration

I love signs and love making them.   After curating this board I know there are more signs in my future. If you click on the image above or the link it will take you to the Kitchen Sign board where you can then read the full post on each sign.  I am sure you will find a great one to spark some inspiration for you to make one of your own.  I know I am going to be busy in the next few weeks.

If you love to share your DIY, home and/or garden projects then this is the place to do so.  If you don't have anything to share it's a great place to get some awesome inspiration for your next project, create your own boards and build some great places to keep all your inspiration in one spot. 
                                                    Beware though - it can be addicting!

You can also follow them on Facebook where they love to feature some of the projects shared on their site.
Have fun perusing all the great projects and building your own creative, inspirational boards.

Until next time have fun creating something you love.

TBT Retro Armoir

Last week I brought back the loft guest room that we redid for our grand kids one summer.  This week I thought I would bring back the retro armoir we did for that room as it is one of the focal points. I had a lot of fun doing this armoir because of the colors I chose for it.

Wordless Wednesday - Super Moon

Vintage, Paint and more... super moon over the ocean at night

This past week we had what some people call the "Super Moon".  This is when the moon is actually closest to the earth that it gets.  We decided to go to the beach to take a few pics and this is one of what we enjoyed that evening basking in the balmy breezes.  It was beautiful.
