A Quick Pizza Peel Up-Do

Ok, now before I go to bed, I thought I would share a quick and easy little up-do on a pizza peel I found not too long ago.  This is so stinking easy I think my eight year old could do.....

Well, no - let me take that back as I remember while I was doing this she did manage to burn herself a little "assisting" me.

And I heard about it for days.

Anyway....  back to the tutorial on this thing.

New Orleans - Vintage Shopping (and Eating), Heaven!

Just before school started this year, we took the kids to what I like to call "America's Europe".  Only one city should come to mind and that would be New Orleans!

New Orleans is the closest one will ever get, (here in the U.S.),  to Europe without actually going there!

They were excited.  So excited that complete CHAOS invaded our home one week before we left.  But that's another story and we are going to leave it at that.

What Goes Into Custom Painted Furniture or Home Decor?

I had a client ask me one time:  

"What goes into a piece when you do it?"

By the time I was done telling her, I was helping her pull her chin off the ground.

"But I thought you just found it and painted it?"  she later replied

Most do not understand why we charge the prices that we do for our pieces, and I am going to try to shed some light on this because of this fore-mention misconception.

First of all, we do what we do because we have Passion for what we do.  
It's not our "flavor of the month" moment.

Nifty Storage Containers

I wanted to share something with you this time that's a little off topic, but well worth sharing.  I just got ahold of these great little storage containers called Popsome Containers.

Vintage Luggage Transformation

Hi Folks!  Still here.  It's been a very busy summer for four children and nothing but rain since the middle of June.  I think I have actually become a mushroom with webbed feet!  I have a number of projects I'm going to be showing you, but first is this quickie I did today.
