A Cute Little $5 Bench

I found this bench at the thrift store for $5.  Can you believe that??  I thought it was so adorable, but my husband, ummm notsomuch.  He seriously wanted to put it by the curb for trash pick up.  Shame on him! And I’m sorry, this has to probably be one of the worst “before” photos […]

Interchangeable cheese dome cloche

I jumped on the cheese dome turned cloche bandwagon.  They are all over bloggyland, but I first saw Allison at House of Hepworths transform hers.  You can find her post about it here, and it’s a fabulous tutorial.  She is just too good and I heart her like I heart chalkboards. I found these at […]
