In June this year our daughter Mia and fiancé Paul tied the knot in a gorgeous woodsy setting, followed by a reception in a fabulous barn. This was our first wedding, with so many special moments with family and friends. We waited quite impatiently for the photos – but over 450 gorgeous images arrived weeks later. So worth the wait. It was difficult to chose “the one” but I did it and love this one. I wanted to frame this wedding portrait it in a creative way, using this gilded frame I had made years ago and Fusion Mineral Paint with a Muddaritaville Studio stencil.

Honestly, unlike my artsy, creative friends and neighbors, I have never been an ambitious seasonal decorator. So, I selected this lovely Home sign by Muddaritaville Studio for this reverse-painted glass project because I can make it work all year round at our little covered porch at the back door. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint colors that can blend with fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas when I add coordinating décor items. It was so fun to use so many fabulous colors all at once. The Fusion fan deck made it so easy.

Drink Wine, Then Make This Halloween Lantern

Drink Wine, Then Make This Halloween Lantern

Our neighbors moved in three years ago, and Marsha arrived with a mind-boggling talent for gardening. And, she makes the coolest little Halloween lanterns out of pretty wine bottles and a solar bottle stopper with fairy lights specifically for wine bottles. She gave me a couple last year and I use one on a shepherd’s crook like she does in her back yard. I like using this Halloween one on our deck table. The jute comes in the kit, too.

Let’s make several in five minutes! After you enjoy the wine of course. Marsha got this “Sweet Bloody Red Wine” from Aldi.

Paint Artsy Glass Dishes – In Reverse!

Paint Artsy Glass Dishes – In Reverse!

There’s nothing easier than painting on the back side of clear glass plates. They can be found at dollar stores and Goodwill, and are surprisingly durable. These are from our daughter Mia’s wedding reception in June and I knew exactly how to re-use them.

I am going to do two different patterns, one on the dinner plate, and another on the salad plate, so that they look amazing layered together. I am painting with Fusion Mineral Paint in my favorite coordinating colors, plus two Muddaritaville Studio stencil designs.

Turn An Old Mantel Into A Laundry Room Clothing Hanger

Turn An Old Mantel Into A Laundry Room Clothing Hanger

IT’S BEEN LIKE MUSICAL MANTELS AROUND HERE!

This little, very rustic shelf in rescue kitty Buggy Buggerson’s room is such a favorite of mine. When I found a very long, old, window header at our local Chartreuse monthly barn sale to convert into a mantel in the living room, I moved the old mantel into Buggy’s room above the bed. That meant I had this cute extra one and no place to hang it. For months it languished in the closet waiting for the light bulb to go off over my head.
