Fall Trash to Treasure Decorations

Before the snow flurries arrived in northern Wisconsin, which was ridiculously early this year, I decorated with some repurposed finds. I made some pumpkins from old books, and painted a pie tin with chalkboard paint. It’s hard to see, but that Sedum is growing out of an old oil can. I filled an old milk delivery […]


When Life Hands You Crumbs…

I saw this basket of cookies at a place called Mana Sushi Teriyaki Wok in Port Orchard, Washington and it made me smile. The “misfortunate” cookies are broken fortune cookies wrapped in plastic. Isn’t that a perfect example of what we can do when life hands us crumbs? We can choose to get upset, feel […]

How Many States Have You Visited?

Have you ever calculated how much of the United States you have visited? I just returned from a long road trip, and thought it would be fun to do the math. I’m not certain if I traveled through additional states as a child, but these are the states I have visited as an adult. Someday, […]

I love the fabric keyboard folio that I use on my iPad, but it was getting so dirty! I was embarrassed to use it for any business meetings.

I tried cleaning it and then coating in Scotch-guard, but it was soon dingy again. So today I decided to chalk paint. I know! I really am addicted.
