Pinteresting Staircases

People can be so creative when it comes to home decorating-
nothing is safe when you get the decorating bug!
These staircases are part of the homes decor-
I got as creative by putting a carpet on mine!
So, without further ado-
"The Pinterest Staircases"

Saturday Favorites

I'm back today with my
Saturday favorites
and I couldn't be more excited!

Susan from Uniquely Yours or Mine
fashioned this secretary desk for a friend-
The colors remind me of Nantucket red chinos
and the ocean blue...
and I especially adore the monogram!

Stephanie of Full Of Great Ideas created
these monogrammed glasses using etching
cream and a stencil with her cricut-
Love this idea and I definitely will try it!
She gives a great tutorial with a step by step
for the 1st time etcher!

Carrie of Dittle Dattle recreated
a clock she spyed at Pier 1-
She used the top of an old laminate table
and created the numbers using a scroll saw-
talented lady!
Love the old world look of it too!

Krystal from Sassy Sanctuary created
this adorable table for her little girl's birthday-
After a trip to Ikea, she found some inspiration
pics and went to town-
My girls would have adored this when they were little!
Love the hand painted top too!!
She recovered the little chairs too!

Cindy from Cloches and Lavender
tried her hand at using gesso to create these french inspired pots-
she added a "frenchie" transfer to finish them off-
Ooh la la - magnifique with the lovely lavender too!

Hope these favorites make you smile too!

Have a lovely weekend!

Pinterest Pleasures

Pinterest is still my interest
and this week I'll show you why-

Craft spaces are my envy-
mine is usually in the garage, outside, the basement
or my kitchen table-
so, when I see these- I get craft envy!

Saturday Favorites

Welcome back to my Saturday favs!
Another week of amazing, creative blogs!

Anna, from A Good Home took a
hand me down table with an old faux finish
and cleaned it up with some paint-
Love the burlap runner and summertime
accessories- Go visit this newbie blogger
and make her feel welcome!

Molly, from The Poor Sophisticate
completely transformed her hallway
using everything she already had-
She created all the wall art and even papered
a wall with old book pages-Talented lady!

Wreathes are an obsession of mine
(among many things!)
so these next to bloggers made me smile!

Kimberly of Simply Living created
this wreath from book pages-
but put a spin on it-
the pages look like leaves and it's simply adorable!

Michelle from Strawberries and Sweet Love
also used book pages for her wreath-
She layered and twisted the pages
and it makes a "wow" statement on her mirror!

Erica of Tattered Elegance created
a painted lady from an antique mahogany
drop leaf table- she loves ASCP as much as I do
and she harlequined (is that a word?)
and stenciled it into this beauty!

Emily of Emily's Upcycled Furniture
took an old dresser and breathed
new life into it- the color-Sophisticated Teal by Behr
and all the white trim and embellishments
makes this a real show stopper!

Hope you enjoyed this week's show
and came away with
 some creative inspiration-
I know I did!

Pinterest pop...the wine

The week finds me in a "wine-y" kind of mood!

The things people think of to create with wine corks is staggering!
I mean really,
 all you people do is drink for crafts! lol
First up is a wreath-
maybe if you're having a wine tasting-
but you have to invite other people-remember that!

Tiffany, from Living Savvy, shows us her step by step
tutorial (only the wreath making, not the wine drinking!)

Awe, someone made my initial!
