From trash to treasure


A quick post today, to show off this pretty little chair. 
I don't do a lot of furniture makeovers , 
I tend to leave that those who actually know what they are doing. 
But I did wanted to share with you this chair because I loved how it turned out .
The best part is that it costs us $0 and it literally went from trash to treasure. 
Here she is the day we brought her home.

And after a little paint and this gorgeous fabric.... 
It looks like entirely new piece and I love it.  
I must give credit to hubby for doing such a great job reupholstering the chair.
We used some of the free fabric that was in my swag bag from Haven.
The fabric is from the amazing folks from Online fabric store  . 
Their selection is incredible! sigh.
So next time you drive by a sad looking piece, you know what to do...:) 

See you later on tonight at The Inspiration Gallery...xo

Early fall mantel


I'm sitting here on an unusually quiet afternoon. The sun shining bright outside and the warm breeze streaming through the windows. It's late summer and I'm feeling a little nostalgic of yet another season about to leave us. I'm thinking of all the little unchecked items in our summer bucket list and feeling a little guilty for not being able to accomplish everything the kiddies wanted to do this summer. But hubby reminded that we are a family, and though summer ends and the routine captures us once again, we have a lifetime to check the items in our list. 
Just as the seasons change so will the mantel, so I wanted to share some photos I took before I change it up again...:) 
You might recall some of these photos from the Canadian Blogger Home Tours 
I wanted to show you how simple it is to make a serene vignette by simply adding a few items from around your home.  
Old books a few cloche and some fresh flowers from the garden. 
I simply  placed some of the beautiful French script I picked up from Scott Antique Market inside this old window frame. 
 I have been collecting old clocks from thrift stores and I love displaying various items under the glass cloche. 
I'm going to miss these when they're gone,
 so why not capture them on photos while I can right?
I will miss summer, but I'm looking forward to sharing more often with you.
Thank you so much for sticking around.
much love,

How to make an adorable polymer clay dougnut paperclip

 Hello all ! I hope you had a great weekend 
and your week is off to a great start! 
Last week Bella and I played  with
 polymer clay and made these adorable doughnut charms.
 I thought it would be appropriate to make a couple
 of adorable polymer clay doughnut paperclips as well, 
seeing as this is our last week before school starts. Isn't is sweet? 
We also made this little cookie which I will show you how to make next week. 
Polymer clay is one of my favourite mediums and I never get sick of playing with it. 
Head on over to my ehow blog to learn how easy it is to make these adorable mini polymer clay doughnuts...:)  You're gonna love it! 

Talk to you very soon! 
much love,
