Fan Blade Hello Sign

May 23, 2018

Whip up a warm and welcoming sign for your front door with an old ceiling fan blade and some dollar store flowers. 

Fan Blade Hello Sign DIY

I've always been a huge fan of simplicity. Whether it's my wardrobe or home decor, fussy has never been my style. In my closet, you'll find jeans, white t-shirts and little black dresses that I pair with a single strand of pearls.

In my kitchen, there are vases and wreaths filled with all the same bloom, no mixed bouquets, and my rooms are decorated with a pairing of one color and white. 

So it makes perfect sense that when I decided to make a new fan blade sign, I went with sweet and simple sentiment.

Create a unique piece of home decor with an embroidery hoop and a placemat doily.

Sometimes when I go to the thrift store, I find items I like, but have no idea what I'm going to do with them once I get them home. That was the case with this embroidery hoop. 

It caught my eye because it was unusually large. Huge actually, so I picked it up.

So spring has finally shown up, unfortunately the sun has not. It's been raining here for several days and the forecast doesn't look any different for the next week or so. Bummer.

That's ok, I decided to make my own sunshine...and for about six bucks. 

Thrift Store Fashion Challenge

May 10, 2018

Thrift Store Shirts

So I've been talking a lot about thrift stores and my fun finds lately. Hunting for treasure and then displaying it in my home or transforming it into something new has become somewhat of a passion. I enjoy browsing and I love every square inch of my thrift store. I dig deep into each and every corner.

Well, almost every corner. True confession? I stay far, far away from the fashion.

Spring And Summer Thrift Store Shopping

Why Spring and Summer Thrifting Are Best
Finally...spring has arrived in my neck of the woods and I am ready to shop! Ok, well, not really shop, shop, but thrift shop and as far as I'm concerned, looking for buried treasure during the warmer months is the best. Why, you ask. Well, the short answer is because I am not in an actual shop.

And what could be better than that after a long, long winter?

What Your Hair Style Says About You


I hate titles like that and the articles that follow. It's no different than the ones that want to tell you about the ten decorating mistakes you're making right now. Complete and total hogwash.

They make me so mad. They're just there to sell magazines, full of nonsense, made up by some "expert" who needs to fill their word quota.

And it frustrates me beyond belief.

Sunshine In A Cup

How To Remove Scratches From Old Plates

Not too long ago, I found this giant tea cup at the thrift store. If you're a regular reader, I doubt you've forgotten its despicable condition. 

I fell in love immediately. Its size, shape and price drew me right in, at a dollar fifty, it was a bargain. Plus it was a matched set, hard to come by at second hand shops...and probably most importantly, it needed a good makeover. 

I'm a sucker for a lost cause.

The Best Way To Clean Scratched Dishes

April 18, 2018

Last week Mother Nature let spring out of her cell for a few short days and I left the house. After running some boring errands, I decided it was too nice to go home, so I hit the thrift store instead. I didn't expect to find anything fabulous, but I stumbled upon a very cool cup and saucer. 

It was totally scratched and anyone else probably would've walked right by, but not this girl. I grabbed it, brought it home to clean it up, get the scratches out and make it into something divine.
