Share It One More Time Link Party and Features #22

Good morning everyone.
  Can you believe it's Saturday already and time for the 

Share It One More Time Link Party 

Seems like the week just flies by between these parties.  This week's host is Tammy from One More Time Events but before I turn it over to her I would like to share with you what I have been up to this week. 
The days have continued to be chilly and I know those of you in the Midwest have experienced lots of snow and cold.  On days like this I like to stay close to the fireplace and just crochet.  Here's my latest project I just finished.

Now let's get on to Tammy - I can't wait to see this week's features.

Welcome Back to another Share it One More Time

Tribal Inspired Ripple Design Crochet Afghan

Hi there friends,
I have been sitting by the fire crocheting up a storm these past few chilly months - yes, it has been chilly at the beach. I have completed one afghan and nearly completed a second one.  The one I am showing you today is for my oldest son and is crocheted in an old fashioned Ripple Design using the tribal inspired colors that he loves.

Rustic Potting Bench Makes a Vintage Industrial Table

Good morning friends.
I love a bargain as I am sure most of you all do also. Last week "T" found a little rustic table and thought I would like it so he brought it home to see if I could find a place for it. Can I say I didn't just like it - I Loved It. And I think you will too ...

Share It One More Time LInk Party #20

Good morning friends and welcome to 

   Share It One More Time Link Party.

We're so glad you are here to join in the fun.  I love seeing all the great projects you bring to share each week. This week was super awesome but before we move on I want to share what I did this week.  I am still organizing a bit and needed something to corral all the yarn I have been accumulating crocheting the afghans I have been sharing. So when I was in Good Will and saw an old hamper I just knew it would be perfect.  You can read about how I transformed it into a French Hamper with a little paint and some fabric. I love the results and the fact that it holds all those yarn leftovers.

This week's host is Lori of Designthusiasm. So without further ado I am going to turn the party over to her.  You all have a wonderful week and keep those awesome projects coming.

Organizing with a French Hamper

Hi everyone.  
Are you all still trying to get your first of the year organization done like I am?  I have to say I am still on my quest to get a few things organized around here.  I have to admit I have not made a huge difference as I have been a bit under the weather.  I have a small project I put together to organize my out of control yarn supply  - a cute little French Hamper that I think you will enjoy.  I am also joining with the ladies of A Dose of DIY today.  This month's theme is, of course, organization. Just in time for me to get this little hamper off my to do list and into a functional state.


I found this rather drab old hamper at Good Will and picked it up thinking I could use it in some way.

Not too pretty - woven raffia or reeds of some sort and dull.  It was quite dirty and needed a good cleaning also. So I set to work on cleaning it before I did any kind of rehab to it.

Share It One More Time Link Party and Features #19



Hi everyone and welcome to the
    Share It One More Time Link Party.
I'm so glad you could make it.  I just love seeing all the wonderfully creative things you come up with each week.  You do inspire me.  
This week Julie from Lilacs and Longhorns is our host but before turning the party over to her I thought I would show you what I have been up to.
I have been in a bit of a lazy mode lately but did get motivated by the monthly Junk Revision Challenge I belong to.  This month the theme was hearts so I turned some old junk I was discarding into this.

Now it's time to turn it over to Julie - you all have a wonderful and creative week.

Vintage Valentine Wall Art

I really don't do much in the decorating department for Valentine's day but today I am joining the lovely ladies in the 

           Junk Revision Challenge

This month's theme is hearts so I decided on an easy, budget friendly vintage valentine wall art project. But the best part of this project is that it can easily be done in an afternoon.
