Decoupaged Plates

I made these flower plates last night and am so happy with how they turned out. I used Mod Podge to glue pictures cut from a calendar and scrapbook paper onto the backs of clear plates. I didn't have to go out and buy anything. Love when that happens! I am going to have to stock up on these clear plates (from Walmart) so I can make more. Have a wonderful Wed. y'all!!!

Initial Canvas

Here is my new initial canvas I have hanging outside near my backdoor. As I showed you in yesterday's post, I moved the polka dot painted one to my front door for Easter and put a bunny on it. I went up in my attic and got down a canvas (found in someone's trash) and stapled fabric and a ribbon hanger to it and hot glued on the T. So easy and cheap! Hope you have a great Spring day!

"Eastery" Front Door

Here is my "Eastery" front door. This canvas used to have my last name initial (T) on it and hung by my backdoor. I decided to put it on my front door with the bunny on it and make another initial canvas. I'll show you that on Tuesday. Happy Monday everybody!

My Kitchen Desk Area

I thought I'd show you my kitchen desk area I've been working on since I showed you a little bit of it in my last post. I got this bulletin board last summer at a yard sale and it has been up in my attic. I got it down the other day and recovered it in some animal print fabric. I wedged it behind the footboard chalkboard (see project here) to hold it against the wall. It will soon be filled with all kinds of notes and pictures, but it is empty right now. I added a garage sale ladder back chair I spray painted black and a reversible pillow on it made out of a placemat. I changed out some things on the desk and on the walls. I'm pretty happy with it, but I love to change things around so I'm sure it will have different looks in the future. Hope y'all have a fun Friday and a great weekend!

Add Fabric to a Plate

I was looking for something to hang on a small space of wall next to my kitchen desk. I love to hang plates, so I got one out of my stash and cut out a piece of fabric and used a little hot glue to adhere it. Don't look too close 'cause it definitely is not perfect, but that's O.K. I'd never get any projects done if they had to be perfect. I have done this with scrapbook paper before, but now I know I can also create a "new" decorative plate with fabric too. Have a terrific Tuesday y'all!

Tray on Kitchen Table

See, I told you I'd be changing this tray out and you'd be seeing it in the future. This is probably my favorite bunny I have. I got her at Big Lots several years ago. Isn't she cute all dressed up and pushing her basket of flowers?! Hope you are having a great week so far!

Some Spring Decor on my Kitchen Hutch

Here is the hutch in my kitchen with some Spring decorations on it. Two of my favorite things are bunnies and green cabbage/bunny dishes. Love them!!! The weather here where I live has been picture perfect today - sunny and around 70. Spring is definitely in the air!

My "Springified" Kitchen Window

Here is the window above my kitchen sink all "Springified". I spend A LOT of time in my kitchen so I guess that's why I am always decorating in here and do a lot of posts about this room. Hope you don't mind. Recently my sweet husband added some wood on this window ledge to make a wider shelf and I totally love it 'cause now I can have a lamp and other accessories up there. Before I just had a narrow ledge and it was hard to find things that would sit there and not fall off. I always love new places to add more STUFF! I am looking forward to going to some yard sales this Sat. My mom and I have been missing them! Have a fabulous weekend!

Doing Some Spring Decorating

I have been enjoying doing some Spring decorating around the house. Here are a few pictures of my dining room table and a chest piece in my living room. You can probably see that my china cabinet in the background is pretty much empty. I took everything out of it and am going to put more accessories and less china and crystal in it. Hope y'all have a great Thursday!
