White Wednesday

I started this project with no plan at all...
no idea of what I was going to make.

But I thought that 2 rows of fluff looked good...

and knew that 3 were even better...

The fourth one got me thinking...

and by the fifth one I couldn't stop...

The sixth one just proved it to me!

So much wonderful fluffiness out of one vintage drape panel...

Things sometimes create and evolve into something else all by themselves....

and I'm just glad to be around to help them do it.

Thank you Kathleen for hosting another fun White Wednesday.

"Time is an equal opportunity employer.
Each human being has exactly the same number
of hours and minutes every day.

Rich people can't buy more hours.
Scientists can't invent new minutes.
And you can't save time to spend it on another day.

Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving.

No matter how much time you've wasted in the past,
you still have an entire tomorrow"

How are you spending yours today?

School is out!!!!

To celebrate my favorite day of the year: Last Day of School
and the beginning of the No Schedule Season, I went back to the garage and married a boring cork board

to a leftover thingy....

and the results make me as happy as not having to get up early in the morning!

White Wednesday

Not everything in our lives gets a coat of white paint...

Sometimes we get rid of some of the white paint...

Because sometimes, less is more...
Less peeling...
Less doors...

and a lot more charm!...

This is the kind of pieces that are hard to let go...
but we must!
The ugly part of the business...

For some serious white inspiration,
visit Kathleen
at Faded Charm!

Loving this shade!!

If you have ever read this blog before,
you know that a lamp base like this...

will have its issues tackled

and be transformed into something like this...

No news there!

But what you haven't seen here before, is a lampshade like this one...

because it's the first one I made...

but I like it so much I can promise you it will not be the last one!!

I just hope now that someone will love it as much as I do and take her home!

White Wednesday...

Is that day of the week when we show our love for everything and anything white.
Today, some shots from my own home and some inspiring words I came across...

"Home is the one place in all this world where hearts are sure of each other.
It is the place of confidence.

It is the place where we tear off that mask of guarded
and suspicious coldness
which the world forces us to wear in self-defense,

and where we pour out the unreserved communications of full and confiding hearts.

It is the spot where expressions of tenderness gush out

without any sensation of awkwardness and without any dread of ridicule"

~Frederick W. Robertson~

Keep calm....

Repairing the garage door was double the $ we were expecting to spend.

Leak in the downstairs bathroom.
Twice the $ and the time to repair.

It's 6:30 am.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
I can't handle or afford another home repair this week!!

Argentina plays the first World Cup Game.
Please, Soccer Gods, let Argentina win...
I can't handle a depressed Husband either!!!!

Burlap Luv...

My fascination with burlap continues...
Today, a tut so so simple that no words are needed...

I heart burlap
burlap hearts me!
