frame upcycle

this little frame just became a push-pin board...

I popped out the glass, painted the wood,
hot glued some cork to the cardboard backing,
then folded fabric over the cork and cardboard...

after I glued down the fabric I placed it back into frame and secured with 
a few small nails...

a few buttons glued onto push pins.....

and here ya go...a cute little upcycle...

Del Mar Fair

if you are near the San Diego area

yes, we are huge SciFi dorks...we loved the Star Trek exhibit...
it's an extra five bucks but totally worth it...
here we are with the youngest commanding The Enterprise

the fair has a huge board game and video game exhibit as well...

huge dominos~ 

and super huge Operation~ 

of course, some deep fried cookie dough was in order~

and some zip-lining....good fun....


4th decor

last year we made some cute little pennants out of 
paint chip papers...

just cut into triangles and punch holes, then run a string through
for a cute pennant~

I found these felt-balls on sticks at the Queen Bee Market...

Big Lots has tons of inexpensive banners and flags right now...

I've had this little Uncle Sam forever...
way back when my sons' had a patriotic room
and this donned their little mirror~

Home of the Free....

since I don't have a ton of 4th decor I just
tie ribbons around anything standing still
and stick flags all around...it works, eh? 

it's a few weeks off, but I love to enjoy the 
red~white~and~blue as long as possible...


tea towel make-over

I saw these darling tea towels at a little country 
store the other day.... 
rather than pay twenty five bucks a pop I stitched up my own...

tea towels are about $2 a piece and you can add 
remnants you have on hand...
I used some eyelet lace and simply ripped some fabric strips...
I ran a big stitch through each strip and cinched it up
then re-stitched it over the lace...
and whalla, cute-ness :) 


Easy chicken dinner

Kraft has a delish new easy peasy cheese and breadcrumb mix.
...it's so good!


pillow love

I ran into Big Lots for some end-of-the-year-school-craft-supplies
and came out with THIS cute pillow...

check out the District 23 decor at Big Lots...
OMG such cute stuff :)
