Flowers in a Frame

Since I'm not sure the snow and cold temperatures are ever going to end here in Michigan, I'm doing my best to think spring! I put together this little craft that's filled with bright greens and white flowers. Anything to hurry spring along a little!

Rusty Metal Shelf

A Rusty Bin Turned Shelf via http://deniseonawhim.blogspot.com
Sometimes you pick up a great piece of junk and you just know you're going to use it for something awesome. Somehow. But you're just not sure how at first. So it sits for awhile. Unused. Maybe feeling a little unloved. That's exactly how this little bin's story goes. Until now.

Gallery Wall Update

Sometimes, one change leads to another. Most times, really. When I changed my furniture around, my wall got all unbalanced. So I went ahead and changed that around, too. And I'm loving it!

The Crafting Party and My Blooming Burlap Canvas

Spring Birdcage and Bloom Burlap Canvas via http://deniseonawhim.blogspot.com
Last Sunday while I was the guest blogger at the Hometalk and Michaels Pinterest party, I made this pretty little spring wall hanging. It really only required some hot glue and a tiny bit of painting. I needed easy while I was chatting with people about Hometalk and helping with crafts. This certainly fit the bill!

Coffee for Two Bistro Set

Lovely set of vintage wooden folding chairs and slotted table via http://deniseonawhim.blogspot.com
I love sitting on the deck, great cup of coffee in hand, enjoying the very early morning sunlight on a warm summer day. I can almost feel the slight breeze and the sun's warmth on my shoulders. That time of morning before the humidity creeps in and everything is still quiet is my favorite. I think these new chairs and table are the perfect spot to relax at, just soaking it all in before the kids wake up and the day officially starts.

What was once a mirror (hmm...hmm... that I broke) is now a large and in charge chalkboard!

I'm excited to share a very easy craft with you today. It's a craft anyone can do. In fact, you can make one like it or choose from other Pinterest inspired projects at a Michaels Craft Party near you this coming Sunday! More on that later. But, for now, let's talk about this shabby turquoise birdcage!

Love, Flowers and Romantic Artwork

Do all couple have a thing they say to each other? You know, a little phrase that has become part of your regular conversation. For Eric and I it's, Love You More. One of us usually ends up saying it when we end a phone conversation. The funny thing is, my kids have now taken it up, too. So I hear it often. Guess that's why I created this sign.
