Hey Guys!  Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend.  I know not everyone is off work over the Thanksgiving Holiday, bless all of you in retail.  I was remembering this weekend when I used to work at Belk and how crazy Black Friday was, pretty sure that is why I am not a fan. 

Tonight I wanted to share with you a fantastic resource for DIY Home and Garden Ideas, Hometalk.  

Hometalk contacted me about curating a Vintage Sign  board after seeing my Vintage Bick’s Pickles Sign.  I was happy to help because I love Hometalk!  If you are not familiar basically Hometalk is website dedicated to home and garden projects.  It is a lot like Pinterest in that you can clip your favorite projects to boards to save them, that is just what I did with the vintage signs I loved.

These signs are so cute and creative! I think my favorite is repurposing the church attendance sign but I also love the Mistletoe and Farmers Market signs.  You can find all of these on Hometalk  on my clipped vintage sign board!  Click the picture above or this LINK.

There is so much inspiration to be found on Hometalk and the best thing is you can ask questions to those that post their projects.  So unlike Pinterest, where you often find a dead link to the original source, with Hometalk you can ask the original poster. 

Also if you are a blogger it is a great resource to share your projects.

So go check it out and let me know what you think!!

Have a great week everyone!

Christmas Cotton Wreaths

Hi guys!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I bet most of you are burning off all those calories with some Black Friday shopping!  Not me, I will be avoiding those crowds! 
Today I am sharing with you my second craft in the Countdown to Christmas Craft Series, my Christmas Cotton Wreaths.  I love to add natural elements into my décor when possible and cotton is just so pretty.  I remember my Mom used to have this beautiful cotton wreath in our kitchen, it was there for the longest time and brings back good memories.  I personally love using cotton in my Christmas décor so I wanted to incorporate it into some wreaths that I could use inside.
Cotton Wreath
This project was another easy one that really didn’t take much time.  You will need a few supplies, grapevine wreaths, cotton, floral berries and greenery stems.  You may also want hot glue and small garden clippers to trim up the wreaths and shape them a bit better.

80th Birthday Celebration

My Grandma, or as I call her, my Mema celebrates her 80th Birthday today!
This past weekend we celebrated her with a big family party.  We decorated with owl’s because she is a wise old owl!  But really how can this lady be 80!?!  She has a lot of energy for 80, always busy with something. 
She is truly an amazing woman and she has helped shape my life in so many wonderful ways.  She has taught me many things in my life,  most importantly to my husband she taught me to cook!  We share many things in common, our love for cooking, cleaning, and decorating! 
Her party was so fun!  She had many of her family and friends there to celebrate her and she enjoyed the company.
