Buy the Good Stuff

This is a quick one here that I meant to share weeeeeeks ago. Yup, it’s a super easy YHL Book project for you.  Buy the good stuff.  At least once.  Then refill if  you want but keep the pretty bottles.

Cherry Pink Spring Mantle

So, normally, DC would be an absolute ZOO now, blanketed in tourist in town for the Cherry Blossoms.  Mother nature seems to have had other plans, and instead we’re under a winter weather advisory. Thanks for nothing, Phil. So since the cherry trees are NOT blossoming just yet, I turned to my local craft store… Continue reading Cherry Pink Spring Mantle

A Little Woodworking JOY

While on one of her near-daily trips to Target, Beth sent me this: Oh boy.  Here goes. So this project seemed to require a thicker block of wood than anything I had laying around.  A fortuitous trip to the ReStore allowed me to pick up a ~4 foot long piece of hardwood of some sort. … Continue reading A Little Woodworking JOY

Happy Birthday, Bill!

One of the drawbacks of long distance is not always getting to be together on special days. Fortunately I thought ahead to be sure he’d have his birthday presents, even if I couldn’t be there the day of.  AND it gave me the prefect opportunity to use this awesome faux bois wrapping paper I got… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Bill!

WEEKEND SCORE – Goodwill Meets Target?

While on an adventure to a Target we don’t typically frequent North of Pittsburgh, we came across a ‘legit’ looking Goodwill.  It was previously an Ekerd and took advantage of what was the drive through pharmacy and instead allowed you to drive up and donate.  Well we couldn’t pass that up!  And boy was I… Continue reading WEEKEND SCORE – Goodwill Meets Target?

Check it out, it’s got Cup Holders! – A Tight corner Nightstand Fix

The layout of our bedroom is a bit too narrow for a nightstand on either side.  We had a black shelf that Beth scored on clearance for $3 at Target that was already in place.  It was mounted on a black painted 2×1 that was screwed into studs on the wall (because, surprise, the hanger… Continue reading Check it out, it’s got Cup Holders! – A Tight corner Nightstand Fix
