You Name It!

How many times have you been to a BBQ and can’t find the cup you were drinking out of because it looks like everyone else's?

Here’s a solution for you, just in time for the 4th of July: Print these fun vintage-inspired stickers on full-sheet sticker paper, trim and place near the bar. Put out some Sharpies and have everyone fill out a patriotic tag for their drinks. No more mix-ups! 
Happy 4th of July!

For the Birds...

I took a woodworking class for my 41st birthday and made this wonderful Adirondack chair. That was, hmm, several years ago, and eventually the wood started to rot. I couldn’t see throwing out all that decent wood, when it still had some life to it and special memories.

So my husband and I made a couple of birdhouses out of it. Now, the chair lives on, and the chickadees and wrens that nest in our other houses have a new home.

Easy Tassel Necklace

Here's a fun project if you happen to have a piece of scrap leather hanging around...and some wire...and a chain...and some beads...

As a "Fresh Face" contributer on FreshHomeblog.com, this was my June project inspired by tassels on graduation caps.
