You’ve all seen the cute signs on the web where they say inspiring words and it looks really cool? I thought I’d give it a try, but it seems like I end up spinning it my way just because it doesn’t turn out the way it’s supposed to. Whew! I certainly hope that makes sense because my brain is fried. I just got off work, the day job, and this post should of gone out last night but I was too busy lazy!
When I updated my spare room in to my “woman cave” I hung this little white shelf which later fell off the well. I was left with multiple pieces of white board and I kept them because I knew someday I would need one. Well, today’s the day! Because you just have to believe!
I first spray painted the board gold, then took Elmer’s glue and made the word Believe and left it to dry over night.
Once I spray painted it white, it all kind of blended and after I hung it the word could barely be seen.
See what I mean? So I outlined the letters in green glitter glue and I like it much better. Side note: Any tips on how to clean brick?
Isn’t it cute? I love this little corner of the fireplace hearth now. I’ve had that snowman for years. It’s probably as old as my son and he’s 21. I did a post not to long ago on the pinecones and cinnamon basket. Since then, I changed from the basket to this tin. If you want to see what I did to paint the old bucket like this go here.
This is my first of many crafts I’ve got to get done. I’ve got little projects going all over the house and my sweet hubby asked me if I could possibly keep them confined to one room. Lol!
I’m joining a couple of linky parties today, Hi Sugarplum, Beth @ Home Stories A 2 Z, Between Naps on the Porch and Be Colorful. Be sure to check these awesome sites for inspiring ideas.
I wanted to also get another post out because Layla is having a mantel decorating party, but that just might not happen until tomorrow. Check back to see or subscribe and you’ll get an e=mail notification of all my posts. Click on the button at the top to become an “avid follower”.

When I opened the last storage bin of Christmas stuff this week there were the stockings and pillows and lots of wadded up tissue paper. I went through it carefully. I came across an ornament of my mother-in-law who passed away 17 years ago. I was surprised to find and actually wondered why now. I keep most of her keepsakes, as well as my mom and dad’s, in memory boxes.
I’m getting sidetracked. Sorry. This is the ornament I found …
I love this. It’s so fragile. It’s inspired me to start looking at thrift shops more. In the interim, I’ve decorated my little tree in our den with fakes. There, I said it. Fake vintage ornaments that really don’t even look like vintage ornaments, but I still like them.
My mother-in-law loved this time of year. She’s doing a dance right now happy the ornament is hung.
So what about you? Do you put up more than 1 tree? Big, little, theme? And by the way, Happy Friday!
