Wrapped Egg Tutorial


Good Morning everyone.
     In my last post I showed you some really cute and colorful wrapped eggs I had made.  So today I thought I would show you how to make your own with whatever bits of yarn, twine, baker's twine, or string you may have on hand.  It makes no difference they are all done the same.  This is a picture of the eggs in one of my Dollar Store Tins that I painted.  These are quite simple to make and take just a few minutes - so you can turn out a dozen or more in no time.  I usually make mine while watching my evening TV shows.

Plain Tins Turned Trendy


Good morning everyone.  I was at the Dollar Tree the other day when I happened on these little tins.  They were cute but the colors were all wrong and they were pretty plain - I almost passed them by.  Then an idea struck and  I knew I could alter them to make them really trendy and fit into our present decor.
So I bought these plain little tins to work a little magic on.

Spring in the Entryway


Good morning everyone.  Today I thought I would bring you a little more Spring by showing you our Spring entryway.  I wanted to keep it vintage and neutral this year and I think I achieved that with the items I chose.

Fabric Rag Wreath Tutorial


Good morning everyone,
  Last week I shared our Spring Mantel with you and promised I would write the tutorial for the fabric rag wreath featured above it.
So today I thought I would bring you that tutorial so you could make one for yourself if you so choose.
