I Told You So

Oh don't we all love to hear that line or the smirk on someones face when they are saying to themselves.......

I Told You So! 


I was recently told that by someone that I love and respect so much about adopting my 3 (troubled) kids from the Foster System. WOW...  ok to be honest my first feeling was shock, then it went to anger and after I thought about it for a minute, ok I have PEACE about it.

Vintage Window Mirrors-DIY

Hey all, just wanted to stop in and show you how I transformed these vintage old windows into a mirror.

Vintage Window Mirrors-DIY


I just love the idea of repurposing and reusing vintage items, turning them into something else that is now usable again. This project was done a couple of years back and I am still using them both today. I have one in my kitchen and a solid glass one in my hallway.

Cleaning with Essential Oils

Today I am sharing with you on how I use Essential Oils in my every day cleaning. I want to stay away from harsh chemicals as much as I can with the kids and dogs around.

Cleaning with Essential Oils


I wanted to share with you just some of the ways I clean using natural ingredients and essential oils. I really only started using oils for about a year now but learning more and more each day. I have cut down using chemical to clean as much as I can. I am feeling better that our family and our pets are not around those chemical cleaners.

Vintage Crate Turned Rolling Ottoman

Today I want to share how I turned an vintage crate into a rolling ottoman, so much more usable. I do not have much room but wanted both so I came up with this idea.

Vintage Crate Turned Rolling Ottoman 



Hey guys, I am back today to do a DIY on a rolling ottoman I made a couple years back. Also you can see how I changed the casters to work better with our wooden floors.

Vintage Frame Message Board - DIY

I wanted to share a post I did a while back on how to make a vintage frame into a cute chicken wire message board.

Vintage Frame Message Board - DIY


I loved searching to find the perfect frame, kind of plain but with some awesome details. I found one that was listed at a more reasonable price and I grabbed it. This DIY was from a couple of years ago and the picture above was just taken the other day so you can see I am still loving it and using it more for some sweet items from my past to have on display.
