Social Media Happenings

June 21

This past weekend felt like a mixed bag of ‘Marketplace’ Art!

Aiming high and a little fearless, am hopeful with a little luck thrown in…praying for the best and always joyful!

The beginning of Summer is a good time to put the plan into place for all the Fall, Winter and Christmas fun….creatively speaking that is! Here is what I have been working on.

Creative Kindness Corner, Thinking outside the box.

Are you an outside the box thinker?

If you like to repurpose and reuse vintage goods, this is a great tool to have in your ‘thinking’ box, ‘outside the box’.

Chamber Pots can be used for plants, worn paint brushes can be wall out, a dresser mirror could be a wall mirror, a milk can lid can be a candle holder or the top of a chair can be a wall shelf.

Next time your vintage shopping, think ‘outside the box’.

Click below and enjoy an ol’ post on how an ol’ pair of shutters became cafe doors! It is a great example of how dingy and ugly turns into something pretty neat with a new purpose, and becomes unique …..thinking ‘outside the box’, give it a try!…/06/ol-shutter-cafe-doors/

Check out the DIY category on the Blog (under Blog ~ Category) ~ for creative repurposing, how-to’s and ‘outside the box thinking’.

Yesterday hands down, was the most beautiful day….blue skies, low humidity ~ I savored and appreciated it with an outside stroll in the yard with my camera in hand.

As you know I am a winter girl, but can appreciate a pretty yard on a beautiful day.

There is much work to be done yet….but are we ever really done?

We have some weeding, mulching and planting, painting the ironworks, and adjusting the front steps….and of course fluffing the sitting area.

my husband is the Gardner, I simply just point where I want things. Our system works for us, lol!

I enjoyed the many blooms on the hydrangea bushes, time to read up on drying them 🙃. I hear it is best to leave the blooms on the bush to dry….any tips out there?


June 24
