A Few Of My Favorite Projects From
.… .… .… .… .… .… .… .… .… …


I am a huge upcycling fanatic and LOVE to re-do things normally considered junk
into fun artsy decor for my home. These are used bottles collected and decorated
using paint, driftwood and flowers. It’s one of my FAVORITE thing’s
I’ve created and shared via my blog . .


A Special Christmas Soiree Featured Item
This is another upcycling project I made for Christmas, it features TP
Roll’s made into Christmas ornaments and stuffed with love notes
and sweets. My family really enjoyed them . .


Vintage Candy Cane Bottles
You guessed it …  Another upcycling project I created for Halloween. These are
Vintage Candy Corn Bottles I created for decor from this past Halloween. They
turned out pretty festive and lovely for the seaaon.


I made these awesome place cards for Christmas Dinner this year.
I have a zillion of corks from years of collection and finally decided to start making use of them. It was a big hit and everyone enjoyed the idea of having a special place holder and got to take them home!


.… .… .… .… .… .… .… .… .… .… …
I also indulge in a lot of fun Cause related events and would LOVE to share in any you have got going on. Please certainly let me know and I will share and join in!
