Vintage 1950's TV Cabinet UPCYCLE!

I found this Vintage 1950's TV Cabinet at Goodwill last spring for $99.99.   I fell in love with it...but $100?  C'mon.... Someone's pricing was WAYYYY off - because it didn't look like this when I found it!

The top was completely destroyed.  The veneer on the doors was in decent condition, but the hardware was damaged and although it had been gutted on the inside, it had a huge hole in it!

A week later it was still sitting there - but now it was marked down To $19.99 and I jumped on it!  I literally jumped on it in the store and hollered "Woo Hoo... This SHALL BE MINE!".    (Okay, well that's how it went down in my head, anyway!)

DIY Wedding Decor - PART 2

Two years ago, my two daughters got married "DIY-style" within 3 months of each other.  A while back I posted many DIY Wedding Decor photos from the two BIG DAYS!  If you didn't see it, you can go HERE to check out that post! 
I recently came across some more pictures that I took as items were made for the first wedding - a pink and orange beach wedding...

Scrappy Sea Horse Silhouette on Burlap

I decided to challenge myself by "shopping" my own craft see if I could make something...anything....for FREE......  A big thank you to Laura at The Turquoise Home for this awesome "Scrappy" Idea!    Only using what I had on hand I was able to put together this cute piece of wall art for my powder bath.  A "Scrappy Sea Horse Silhouette" on burlap and mounted on a piece of scrap wood.

U-Pick Pumpkins Hand Painted Sign - and the story behind it....

Every year at this time pumpkin patches start advertising with their U-Pick signs....  And every single year those signs remind me of  the year we had a pumpkin patch in our backyard.

My Goodwill Fall Tablescape for under $10

Fall was in the air a few days ago... We had thunder, lightning, rain and cooler temps.... But, today it's back up into the mid-80's and low to mid 90's are in the forecast for the rest of the week.   This was definitely a very good summer, weather-wise,  up here in the Pacific Northwest and it's not over yet....
but I REALLY, REALLY want fall to come....
