BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve friends. Sharing some news. After 32 years working for the same company, as of Tuesday, I'll be retired. Well semi-retired. I'm going to take a break and figure out what I want to do for a least a few more years. I'm one of those the more I have to do the more I get done people and while I don't want anything as stressful or demanding as what I've been doing, I will want to do something. 

Like many companies, mine has been moving jobs out of the country for a while now and I knew this day would likely come. Up until about a month ago, I'd been on the other side of the conversation, having had to deliver the news to people in the past. I was hoping to make it a couple more years but it's all good.  I'm part of the generation that started hearing "don't expect to work for the same place your whole career" and managed to defy the odds. And now I'll have more time for making so it's all good! I'm thankful to have had the career I have and what's it's enabled me to do. 

OK. How about we look at some ideas from last week's party?!


Unfortunately, we're one of the states spiking in COVID cases. Our little town mandated masks today along w/ several other cities. Here's a DIY face shield idea shared by Hello Sewing that would be great for anyone needing some extra protection that's pretty and functional! 


I'm drawn to tiered towers whether for decorative display or functional storage. This one adds risers to give it even more elevation and South House Designs has some other great tips! 


With the Fourth of July coming up next month, here's a way to decorate (again w/ tiered trays...I told you I was drawn to them!) from The Organized Dream and there are 19 more ideas at the link!

Finally, last week I featured a cozy patio makeover. This week it's a front porch. Back, front, or inside, since we're spending more time close to home, it's nice to make it comfy and cozy. From A Day of Small Things


Cozy!

Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week! 
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all and welcome to the last party of August! Can you believe it's September in a couple of days? I cannot. We're finally moved in and manically unboxing. 

Let's take a look at some ideas shared at last week's party OK? 


I'm smitten with the Industrial look that's so popular right now but even DIY'ing it can add up. Would you believe these are PVC? Much cheaper than buying metal and looks just as good! From Domestic Deadline


With Fall around the corner ( although this will be a different one for me...first one in the desert) how about a great sign idea from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S made from scrap pallet wood? 


Gold is everywhere in home decor right now but you don't need to run out and by new pieces. Update them, like Repurpose and Upcycle did with one of my favorite things, Rub N Buff! 


Finally, after all that creating, Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies are always a good idea. From A Day of Small Things

Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week !
