Hi, I know I have not posted in a while, it might help if I got some followers! lol
I had a little accident at work and I banged my big toe up, so I was told to stay off my feet, which gave me an excuse to be a BUM! So whilst being a bum, I got sucked into reading other blogs, there are soo many out there!
I am off for the next two days so hopefully I will get a productive wave and get to crafting.

This is the wall hanging I made out of five napkins.
I also like to collect things: bottles, antique keys, tiles, shells, anything orange or red.
Here is a metro shelf in my apartment with thrift store finds displayed on.
I found this mannequin at a thrift store, I think I got it for $25!

So I wanted to share with you some of my past craft projects that I have done around my apartment........
*Just yesterday, I painted around the boring border of a cheap full length mirror in gold paint.
*I found old chairs, painted them red, and then redid the seat cushions in matching napkins.
*Painted the outline of a bookcase red.
*Made a wall hanging with 5 napkins......Sewed together 4 napkins of the same design to make one big square then placed a different color napkin in the center.
*Spray painted a cherub lamp base gold.
*I found cheap curtains, fabric shower curtains and huge pieces of fabric and tacked them up to my apartment windows as curtains (didn't want to have to put up curtain rods!)

I will include pics to show you these projects, but I have to wait till a friend recovers my pics from my old laptop(long story)
Well I am off now to make some soup, leek and potato and corn chowder, from scratch, not a can! lol

Welcome to my blog!

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I got the inspiration to start a blog from my Mum, she has her own blog so I decided to start my own blog. I thought it would be fun to have a place to share my crafting and thrift store finds, two things I love to do when I am not working. I love to create or buy things to make my apartment look pretty, without spending a ton of money.
Well, I am going to go and make my blog look pretty, catch ya soon!
