Christmas in July Week 4

Christmas in July Blog Hop


Welcome to week 4 of Christmas in July! We’ve had so much fun participating in this month long blog hop with a group of blogging friends.  Lots of wonderful crafts, recipes and Christmas ideas have been shared. This is the last week of the party and we invite you to link up your Christmas posts with us. This is going to be such a great resource for the holidays!  (more…)

Coastal Recipe Box

Coastal Recipe Box Thrift Store Find Makeover Across the Blvd

I’ve got another thrift store find makeover to share with you. I know that we all access recipes on line, but I still love having printed recipes. I’ve got lots of recipes printed out and they’ve been crammed into one of my kitchen drawers. I’ve been on the lookout for a box that would be the right size. I found one recently at Goodwill that was just right, plus, it already had a coastal look to it, but it needed a makeover. Now, it looks great in my kitchen. (more…)

Sewing Cabinet Makeover


Sewing Cabinet Makeover Across the Blvd

I’ve got one more piece of furniture to share with you that I gave a makeover to for my coastal bedroom redo. This night table was once a sewing machine cabinet. It’s another of those pieces that my mother had in her shop a number of years ago. By the time she got it, the sewing machine had already been removed and it was being used as a side table. Spruced up with white paint and a pop of color, it’s now a pretty night table in the guest room 

Social Boost Monday

Social Boost Monday Party Graphic We’ve enjoyed launching this party and meeting some new bloggers along the way. Unfortunately, the party didn’t take off the way in which we had hoped it would and Laurie and I have decided to close the party.  Thank you to everyone who linked up over the last few months. We hope you enjoyed making some new connections.
