Take a couple of panels of stained glass, add a cedar frame and create art for your windows! 

Hey strangers!

Where have you been?!  It’s been so long since I’ve touched base with you – are you ignoring me?

Kidding – and with my apologies – I’ve been working hard, but certain life problems and projects have interrupted my work flow.

Take these stained glass windows I helped a friend with  back in May – they have been sitting on my photo reel waiting […]

DIY Planter from House Becoming Home

Build your own DIY planter with chippendale accents using the free plans from Angie at House Becoming Home.

Each month a group of brilliant DIY bloggers get together and take on a challenge – for the month of May, the challenge was a #DIYOUTDOORCHALLENGE.  I wasn’t able to participate this month because of several other projects on the go, but the other women did not disappoint and the projects are awesome.

One in particular had me drooling; a gorgeous chippendale planter from […]
