It seems like forever since I shared some of my favorite DIY projects.
I must confess, working a full-time job, running a part-time vintage sale business and tying to squeeze in all those projects on my “to-do” list, I haven’t had much time to read my favorite blogs or check out some of my favorite sites and share what I’ve discovered.
I changed that up this week and got all caught up on my favorite blogs/bloggers and visited some of my favorite sites and I’m anxious and excited to share a few of my new favorite things. Continue reading DIY – Easy Projects I Love!!!
“The saying is something like, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” or “one man’s garbage is another man’s gold” which both mean that what is of little value to one person, may in fact be of great value to another person.”
In a previous post I talked about my love of garage and yard sales, auctions, thrift stores and the thrill of the hunt searching for my next vintage trinket or treasure.
At almost every yard or garage sale the person selling the goods will have a box of stuff that they don’t think anyone will buy and it is marked “FREE”.

I think all good designers would agree that the cheapest way to update a room is with a fresh coat of paint. I also think that goes for more than just the walls.

I’m sure the incredible smells and delicious goodies that came out of those kitchens, inspired my love of cooking and baking and as long as I can remember, I’ve always worn an apron. I am also pretty messy when I cook, bake, craft or garden and without my apron, I am sure I would have ruined many an outfit!! Continue reading 5 DIY QUICK AND EASY APRONS
I have this adorable cat Mylo, he doesn’t like having his picture taken but when I promise him a treat he sometimes cooperates. He received a few treats for this picture.
With indoor cat ownership comes the need to have a litter box, clean that litter box and of course buy cat litter for that litter box. I buy mine at Costco in the 30+ pound container size. Once those containers are empty, instead of tossing them in the garbage, why not turn them into a reusable storage container.
Today’s DIY is another one of those under 30 minute projects that when you are finished the item is actually quite useful…and have I ever mentioned how I hate to throw out anything that I think can be reused, recycled or repurposed. Continue reading DIY Recycled Cat Litter Containers
