Kitchen Update {Inspired by a Couple of Talented Ladies}

Kitchen Update Inspired by Some Talented Ladies via
 I'm thrilled! And there are many reasons for my excitement! First and foremost, my kitchen is organized!! I now also have a room in my fairly ugly rental house that I actually like looking at! And, finally, I got to add some of my vintage and rustic stash to my own house! I can't wait to show you my kitchen!

When it comes to the holidays, I can't go a season with watching my favorite movie (ever): It's a Wonderful Life. It's an awesome reminder of how important each and every one of us are in this crazy-old world!

Upcycled Ornament Display Tree

Upcycling an old cd holder as a tree for displaying ornaments
After crafting some simple snowman ornaments out of 2x4 pieces and can lids, I needed a clever place to display them at our booth. A metal CD rack I picked up at the thrift store was just the ticket!

A Rustic Christmas Star

broken window panes become a Christmas star
When you have to dismantle the damaged panes from a window to make a Christmas sign, why not use the dividers to make a rustic Christmas star while you're at it? That's what I did!
