DIY - Kitchen Herb Planter

DIY - Kitchen Herb Planter

This project was done a year ago as a contributor post to Pretty Handy Girl. I'm happy to report that it served me pretty well all Summer long and for the most part of Fall. The herbs that thrived were basil, parsley and thyme. Mint and oregano did OK, but by the end of Summer they were gone. Cilantro was the worst, a couple of weeks after it was planted, it died. :(

Easter Tablescape

Easter Tablescape

Easter is almost here, how wonderful! My son has asked me for the hundredth time when is Easter break? Well, next week...Next week! 
He is already tired of all the homework he's had to deal with during all this year, quite a lot compared with last year's when he was a fifth grader.

Flea Market Time

Flea Market Time

Saturday morning was the first flea market of the year, it was fun to be there once again. The day was sunny, beautiful, but cooooold, not surprisingly there weren't many vendors or shoppers. However, that didn't mean there weren't any good deals because I got a few. ;)

Easter - Spring Mantel

Easter - Spring Mantel

Hi friends!
Are you already enjoying warmer temperatures? Because around this parts, we've had a wonderful week! There is going to be rain on the following days but I'm not complaining, I'm enjoying the warmer days.
With Spring here and Easter quickly approaching, I set to work on my Easter mantel and tablescape. Lots of rabbits, eggs, chicks, and flowers have invaded my home ;)

Easy Envelope Pillows

Easy Envelope Pillows

I was at the fabric store the other day looking for fabrics to make curtains for my bedroom, I didn't find the perfect one but I couldn't stop going around the store checking all the fabrics until I found one that I love, well, not for the curtains, but my mind immediately put the pretty designs of the "A new leaf meadow" fabric onto a pair of pillows ;)

Fabric Painted Chairs

Fabric Painted Chairs

A couple of weeks ago I spotted a Craiglist ad for some chairs, a store in the area was closing and they were giving them for free. The ones I was interested in were some swivel office chairs the original post had, so I went to pick them up and do some other errants in that area.
Well, when I arrived, the swivel chairs were gone!

Hi Friends,
