DIY Wall Art with Framed Fabric

Hanna Dalrot fabric on wall art piece

Happy Monday!

We got a good amount of snow on Saturday, but tomorrow's temps are expected to be in the mid seventies. Ha, what a change! I'm all smiles :)

I'm bringing Spring decor around the house and this time it was the turn for the wall space in my office. For Christmas I created a tree sign -you can see it HERE, that once the holidays were over i had to remove it. All throughout January that space was empty and I kept on thinking what to display there.

Well, I was organizing some pieces of fabric I had in my bedroom when

Getting Wrinkles Out of Linens

I have a love - hate relationship with ironing. As a matter of fact, I don't hate ironing, or at least I don't despise this chore like most people do.

Ironing brings happy memories of growing up in Colombia, helping my mom with the chores around the house...

Sweeping the floors, hand washing the pots and dishes, organizing the rooms, the kitchen, the bathroom... Oh my, there were so many things we, the kids had to do!

Well, out of all the chores we had to do, what I liked the most was ironing.

Every Friday,

How to build shelf storage in the basement - free standing shelves.

Last year I tweaked the area in the basement where the boys have their computer room. My son had asked for a new computer table and after building it, I had to give the entire space a clean up.

The picture below is how neat that small man cave looked afterwards.

However, what I didn't show you was the area where I put all the other things that I took out of there!

Well, all that stuff... mostly cables and electronics that belong to my husband, were shove off just five feet away and stacked in the big pile you see below.  Yikes!

Tour my Sister's Modern Home in Colombia S.A.


Last Summer I traveled to Colombia, South America to visit my family. It was a month long vacation that me and my son truly enjoyed.

During the first part of our trip we stayed in Bogota at one of my sister's house. Hmmm I haven't tell you, I have six sisters. Yeah, you know, lots of places where to stop.  😀

After two weeks there in Bogota and surrounding areas (we went on small trips to close by towns), we went to the Caribbean and that was also a fabulous trip.

Then, on our return to Bogota, we stayed at

Four Trending Products in our Home this Week!


Hey there!

I hope your weekend is going great!

I was busy yesterday getting everything for tax season and finishing other stuff so I could be ready for today's party. Yep. For the big game, Super Bowl LII.

I'm sending good vibes to both teams, but I think we're going to be cheering for the Eagles. Hey, The Patriots have already won too many times. Though, I wouldn't be surprised of another win. ;)

Today's post is a peek into whats happening in my life right now. I wanted to share with you

Mermaid Long Ruffle Pillow Covers - A Repurposed project

Do you love ruffles?

I love them.

They remind me of my mother, she used to sew dresses full of ruffles for me and my sisters. At that time, they were the norm, I didn't pay much attention to them, they embellished most of my dresses.

Nowadays, I cant get enough of them. Last year I got a couple of blouses with those huge ruffled sleeves, I love them!

However, when it comes to home decor I haven't used ruffles that much or I might say, at all.
It might be that I associated them with shabby chic style and I like to call myself a traditionalist, though with a relaxed twist.

A few months ago, as I was scouting through a thrift store, I found a

bike art with succulents and books on shelf - how to hang picture art

One of  my daughter's resolutions is to set a workout routine. In order to keep her motivation up she wanted a partner in crime (me) to keep her on track - because obviously I don't need exercise, duh!

So, after lots of convincing I brought down our sawdust covered bikes, put them in the car and we both headed to the bike shop to get them fixed.

After we dropped the bikes off, we went to the other side of the shopping center to check the latest at the local thrift store.  Out of all the trashures in there,
