Happy Friday Eve all! Hope you've had a great week. We're under an earlier than usual heat advisory so while the calendar may not yet say Summer...

What a lovely surprise  to find my Metal Flower Bottle Toppers featured over at Our Hopeful Home during this weeks VINTAGE CHARM PARTY #442 hosted by Kathleen and Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction. Thank you! 

I did some more metal embossing this week which you can see here: Embossed Metal Southwest Decor


As always, lots of fun ideas were shared at last week's party so here are a few that caught my eye!



Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared GORGEOUS Tea Bag Art! It's peak iced-tea season so save those bags and play! 

Christine's Crafts  shared these easy and fun to make Gift Tags using Repurposed Book Pages.


My French Twist shared this amazing Macrame Screen that would spark up any space. Macrame is having a moment!

Happy Friday Eve. Happy Easter Weekend. Happy End of March?! YIKES. I dunno about you but I absolutely HATE April Fool's Day pranks so Monday will not be my favorite day. We have enough real pranks going on! 

Anyone else dealing with allergies? Or should I ask if there's anyone NOT dealing with them? 

This week I shared the Faux Chocolate Bunny Easter Cards I made for family and friends. No calories! 

Here are some of the features from last week's party which, if you're still looking for last-minute ideas, fit the bill (or to Pin for next year)!



Dollar Tree always has these Faux Tin Tiles in stock and Fresh Vintage by Lisa S showed how to make a Faux Tin Tile Bunny


Another fun Dollar Tree idea came from Hunny I'm Home DIY with this Beaded Bunny Wreath


If you're looking to bring Spring Flowers inside (without allergens!) then Serenity You has you covered with a great roundup of Spring Paper Flower Craft Ideas


Finally, transform Carrott Cake into an adult beverage with this Easter Cocktail from Cindy's Online Recipe Exchange: Carrot Cake Shooters! 

Thanks to ALL who linked up and wishing everyone a wonderful weekend, whatever you're doing or celebrating!

Happy Friday Eve, all and how is it time for another party already? It feels like the last one just started! Time is flying by and we have ELEVEN days left til Christmas! PLENTY of time for more Elfing, right?

This week I shared a fabulous thrifty find I turned into a Christmas Vignette:


along with an "old" canvas I repurposed into a Textured Winter Painting:


You all shared some wonderful projects last week so let's take a look at a few.





I had so much fun making my own paper bag snowflakes/stars. Imagine my great honor and surprised to be mentioned in a post by Fresh Vintage by Lisa S when she not only shared hers, but also added Book Page Snowflakes/Stars



Sonata Home Design shared a great tutorial on how to make one of my favorites: A bold Statement Ornament Wreath using pool noodles! 



Creatively Beth shared this adorable Polymer Clay Gingerbread Man that can be used for so many things from a keychain to a package topper. 


Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box shared these Hot Cocoa Marshmallow Cookies with Silver non-pareils. 

Thanks to all who shared and as always, can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve, and mid-October, all! Full speed ahead to the end of the year and so many holidays. I continue to be heartbroken by the news and what's happening in Israel and the ongoing news out of Ukraine, and being able to escape into creating things is therapeutic. I finished my Halloween Cards for friends and family, which I shared here. There's so much hate and destruction in the world that without trivializing any of it, seeing the beauty you all create each week helps soothe my soul.


Pumpkins are everywhere. I am partial to the ones some people find ugly. The differently shaped or knotty ones in non-traditional colors. Let's take a look at some ideas. 



Steph Creates really knocked it out of the park with this DIY Pumpkin Display made from supplies Dollar Tree. 


Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared these fabulous Baking Pan Pumpkins. Hit the thrift stores (or your cupboards) and grab some spray paint! 
With holiday entertaining season upon us, these Fall Themed Stamped Tumbled Tile Coasters from An Artful Mom make a lovely hostess gift or if you're hosting, can you ever have enough coasters?


Finally, these Classic Pumpkin Scones (served with Maple Thyme Butter!) are perfect for this time of year. From The Copper Table.


As always, thanks to all who link up each week and WELCOME to first timers! Let's see what you've been up to this week. Take care of yourselves!

Happy Officially Summer! With yesterday marking the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year, we are officially in Summer mode. It's easy for me to forget since "Summer" can feel like it starts in April/May here. In fact, if I recall correctly, we had our first 100 degree day in April. 

I'm still discovering all the arts events and activities in the Tucson area and I subscribe to a newsletter that highlights things to do each weekend. The coolest thing was included in this week's. Raise your hand if you grew up with pink erasers. Me! Check this out! 

This local artist is creating 100 unique rubber stamps out of pink erasers

"Serena Rios McRae, also known as Cactus Clouds Art, has spent the last several months carving detailed designs into pink erasers."

You can read more at the link. I love this!  


Hope everyone who celebrated the Fathers in their lives had a great Father's Day. Now let's take a look at some of the wonderful ideas shared at last week's party! With Fourth of July approaching, there were lots of fun ideas. 


Master Pieces of My Life shared this amazing Vintage Ribbon Flag. All of the different textures really make this special! 


The Apple Street Cottage shared these fun DIY Firecrackers! No risk of fire and so pretty!



Fresh Vintage by Lisa S shared this wonderful Envelope Patriotic Pillow. A great accent, for indoors or out!


And while these Hot Air Balloon Madeleines aren't Fourth of July per se, they could be with different icing colors but they're also just too darn cute and perfect for Summer parties. From Claire Justine. 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've been up to this week!
