Mirror Mirror on the Wall.......

Ok.... confession time,  I have a thing for baskets, lamps, white ironstone and mirrors! Some women go all gaga over shoes or jewelry but me.... I prefer a cool mirror over a pair of shoes any day.  Give me a pair of lamps over a pair of ear rings and I'm as happy as can be.  I know it's probably something that I should be evaluated for but I would rather buy ironstone over a co-pay any day.
This was the latest mirror to come home with me.  I had been hoping to find a large mirror for quite a while but all I had been seeing was 50 bucks or more.  Until I spotted this.

My not so french.... french basket

Recently while I was out treasure hunting I spotted this large wicker basket.  I have a serious basket addiction.  I find it nearly impossible to pass up large wicker baskets...... I don't know why but I just love them so.

2014 Christmas around the house

Hey there,
I am finally getting the Christmas post up.  I seriously can't believe that it has taken until mid December to get this up.

Boxes from old fence boards


Hello all,
A few days ago I put these boxes together.  These were made from the old fence wood that I got when I went to Northwest Oklahoma a few weeks back.

Pretty Little Glass Cabinet

Winter is in full swing already!  We went from 80 on one day to 27 the next, that didn't give my body enough of a stair step down to adjust!  Burrrrr!  Okay enough whining.  Before the cold snap hit I was able to get this little cabinet finished and listed on CL.

What started it all

I thought that I would take a minute and revisit what got this whole blog thing started. This is what I made for my granddaughters last Christmas. It was so much fun to do and it is what motivated me to continue my DIY passion. This year I am working on restoring a doll house that my daughters grandfather (on her daddy's side) made her when she was 7 or 8. It is a work in progress and I am not ready to show it yet. I just wanted to repost this to perhaps give you some idea's for a "Christmas project" for your kids or grandkids. I hope it inspires you. :)
