“Patty” The Dresser

First things first. Let me send a huge shout out to my amazing friend Amy for donating this dresser. It was love at first sight and it has been very hard letting it go. So much so, that I named the dresser, Patty. I have been itching to paint a piece of furniture green for […]

The Gift of Santa’s Bell

When we asked my son what he wanted from Santa this year he told me he wanted a bell from Santa’s sleigh. Obviously a fan of the Polar Express, I saw an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. So I took it into my own hands to make a special “Sleigh Bell” from Santa. I feel […]

Ya, Filthy Animal

Kind of a short post today but I saw this quote the other day on Pinterest and just HAD to make it my own. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE Home Alone! Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!! I couldn’t think of a better way to show off my antlers I picked up a couple of weeks […]

Reindeer Moss Wreath

Adventures in the land of Wisconsin

I spent the weekend in South Eastern Wisconsin spending time with friends and visiting family. I must say I am partial to the state I grew up in. Aside from the proud blue collared roots, I love all things cheese, beer and brat related. Not to mention the beloved Packers. I have lived in two […]

Vintage Gray Dresser

I have to say, and this is not an exaggeration, it took me nearly five years to commit to painting this dresser. I fell in love with this antique dresser but move, after move and it was seriously in bad shape. Peeling veneer and splitting sides were just half of the problems. Not to mention […]

I found this wonderful technique on pinterest the other day from JennyCollier.com. It involved using this gold foil and a laminator to do some sort of a heat transfer when used in conjunction with a laser printed copy. I of course needed to try it and wanted to see if I could push the mold […]

Barn Revisited

The last time I was up in Sheboygan, WI to visit the Schafer Barn was back in February. It’s amazing how different things look (and feel) when you have a “couple” of months, ok 9 months actually, in between visits. It was at the end of their peak fall colors but the country was still […]
