Hi All, Drop me a note and let me know what else you'd like to see from me!

last month

May was an eventful month!
There was Maryland sheep and wool festival, Brimfield flea market, and Elephant's trunk flea market opened for the season. If you haven't already, you can check out all my event pics on pinterest, and even some of my amazing finds in my etsy shop (including a couple of adorable little lanterns, so cute!)
We also created some sweet little dishcloths/washcloths for mother's day. You can grab that knitting pattern for free, it's never too late to give Mom a gift (or treat yourself!)
Oh, and there was that loveseat that we totally transformed! That was a lot of work, but so worth it! Take a look and let me know what you think!

Catch up on last month ;D

this month

Yup, it's summertime! That means bbq with friends, sunny days by the pool... and YARD SALES!!! I am going to share with you my favorite yard sale tips for finding, shopping, and transforming your yard sale finds into things that you can enjoy all year long!
Speaking of things you can enjoy, how about a lovely double lounge for the deck or patio? Don't want to spend $$$? No problem, watch me transform some old (I mean OLD!) chairs into a chic lounge you will LOVE! I'll not only do it on a budget, but in just a few weeks. Check out the transformation, as I share it with you step by step.
Not up for a full furniture makeover project this summer? Start off small with this simple (but sweet) art project! River rocks, or seashells work great for this; especially if you have some from a past vacation. Enhance the beauty of these little pieces of nature to create a souvenir that will always remind you of that moment in time.
And as always, I'll take you along on my thrifting adventures... this month we're off to Adamstown for an antiques extravaganza! Never been there? I'll tell you all about it ;D



next month

From the 4th of July fireworks, to cookouts and campfires, the summer events continue. Find out how I'm celebrating the summer months with my family and friends! Follow me on pinterest for a sneak peak of the fun;D
