Weekly Features

It's been difficult for us to choose just one feature each. Your vintage finds, vignettes and just plain creativity have been awesome!

Kathleen's Pick

I love it when someone finds a new purpose for something and it manages to fit perfectly with the season. Laura from Not Just A Trophy Wife has done just that with her Upcycled Chipped Dishes. With spring right around the corner, she shares her way of displaying some much-needed greenery. But not in a traditional pot, mind you. Rather, she planted it inside an old (and much loved) chipped bowl. It's a great idea to keep in mind the next time a piece of pottery manages to accidentally hit the floor. Not that that's ever happened to me..... 

Sharon's Pick

Handan at The Navage Patch, the blog she shares with her husband, took an ornate mirror and made it over in a unique way. She took a so-so mirror that was gold and silver and brought out the best in it by painting it white and highlighting the ornate parts with Rub'n Buff. The finishing touch, adding an Irish blessing using frosted glass spray, makes this Ornate Mirror Makeover simply splendid.

Cecilia's Pick

If you are still getting snow this week I've got some sunny spring inspiration just for you! Tammy, blogger at Patina and Paint, created an absolutely gorgeous Spring Floral Arrangement using a cabbage and the DIY favorite-- a Mason jar. Her project was inspired by Southern Living's Facebook video, but Tammy chose her own favorite flowers for her version and the results are just beautiful! She shares the tutorial and supply list so that we can make our own, too. Which flowers would you choose?

Diana's Pick

We had a new-to-us blogger link up last week: Leigh from A Porch with a View. In Flea Market Find to a DIY Chalkboard, she tells us about finding a beautiful, curvy flea market frame and turning it into a fabulous and functional chalkboard. She began blogging last fall and is doing a bang-up job. Why not pop on over and give her some love--leave a comment, follow her on social media, etc.? And be sure to check out JUNKING on her navigation bar.
