Side of the street find…

What makes me happy is stuff like this. I couldn’t believe my luck when I happened upon this desk. Just put out by one of my neighbors, tt may not look like much now, but it is gorgeous! It’s solid wood, sturdy, in good shape and best of all will fit perfectly in my boys’ room.

After I got it home and wiped it down, I was quite pleased. The drawers need a little repair work, but overall it is in great shape!

I am not sure exactly what I am going to do with it but I know I want to paint it blue. I found a few refinished desks that I love on Pinterest.

Mother’s Day Throwback – Vintage Decoupaged Plates

plate3
Since Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite gift ideas for this special day. When I worked in the craft industry, I had the pleasure of working with so many talented artists and crafters. One of my favorites of all time is  Cathie Fillian. A few years ago, I was inspired to do a series of plates honoring my favorite women after I saw a set of plates that Cathie created using Mod Podge.  I presented my parents and in-laws with these decoupaged plates honoring my two grandmothers and my husband’s grandmothers. I was lucky to find romantic, vintage pictures of each of the four women, that were then photocopied and paired with pretty scrapbook papers and cut out phrases that fit their personalities.

The first photo is of Eunice: My dad’s mom. She was the quintessential modern woman. Avid fisher, homemaker and an all-around lovely person. Erin’s antique re-do features her dressers.
