Make an Easy Tablecloth for any Occasion

It looks like I'm on a train with wooden spools!
They follow me. Wherever I am, there they are, or so it looks like.

A couple of week ago I went to Hancock Fabrics, I was bringing my daughter to meet some friends and since it was very close to this store, I decided to get in. As usual, I immediately headed to the back of the store for the clearance section.

Fall Decor with DIY Fall Signs

I've been very slowly cleaning up the garage, bringing the tools back to where they belong which is good, because I finally found one measuring tape I really like, I've been looking for it for months! It's the only one I have that gives me the measurements on the fractional read, 1/8 -1/4 -3/8-1/2.... I still get confused figuring out if 3/8 is bigger than 3/4 or is it the other way around?! Anyways, I found it and I'm happy.

Spray Painted Chairs

Long time ago when the kitchen makeover was done, I bought a set of Parson chairs for my breakfast nook, I liked them, but after having them for some time, I didn't like that they blocked the view from the family room to the kitchen and vice-verse, their backs were too high and overall they were too big for that small space.

Table Makeover

I bought this table about 8 or 9 years ago at Target. I was trying to give my bathroom more storage so, a long narrow table with drawers was the perfect solution. After assembling it and bringing it to the bathroom I discovered it was too big, too wide for the room :(

I didn't return it, it stayed in my bedroom for a couple of years. Then, it went to

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #StaplesBTS"

This year was no different than the ones before, my kids couldn't wait to go shopping for back to school. Though, this year we waited until August, and that's very late for us. I remember buying back to school supplies as early as June because they were afraid to return from Summer vacation to empty shelves. :)

Flea Market Finds - August & Giveaway

Was your weekend great?
Mine was OK. Nothing special, just doing stuff around the house.
Time for sure is running fast,
                                          it's August!
And with a new month comes another installment of "flea market finds".
It was a beautiful Saturday morning, it wasn't hot at all, the temperatures have been so mild it looks like Fall arrived before time.

We didn't get many treasures, there were many vendors selling clothes and that's not what I like to look for. :( Anyhow, the following items came home with us.
