When this time of the year rolls around I always want to start a project. Do any of you feel that itch? Maybe it's the world waking back up that makes me feel inspired. I've got my eye on a couple things around here that I would like to refinish. There is my mom's hutch. It's nice but looking a little dated now. I could have a lot of fun with it, maybe paint it something fresh and bright, add some pattern in the back, change out the knobs....oh the fun that awaits! (Maybe I should talk to my mother about this first, hmmmm.)


I have these old Coca Cola crates that I used to use as shadow boxes. They are from the 60's so getting to be antiques. I would like to do something using them but I'm not sure if I'm ready to take that step. It's just an object and they've been sitting in storage for a long time, ok, I've talked myself into it. That was really hard:)


I also would like to find some cute vintage chairs to redo. I need to get out of bed on Saturday mornings and hit the yard sales. They are everywhere and I usually find some pretty cool stuff when I drag my poor, tired body out there when the sun is rising. No pain, no gain. It's easier to yard sale with a buddy though, I guess Mia will have to join me, like it or not! (She usually jumps at the chance because she thinks she gets something at every stop:) I also have a bevy (yeah, I used the word "bevy". You got an issue with that? I know I'm smart and my vocab is huge)of picture frames that I have been trying to find a use for. Any ideas with picture frames besides my usual french memo board? Bring it on.

So now is your chance to share with me all of your spring project ideas. I know you have some, let's hear it. Maybe we can all be inspired by each other and make our lives better and the world a prettier place through our craftiness!

my mom did an entire wall of empty vintage picture frames and mirrors in her bedroom. it's so cool. i think lynette could describe it better, as she helped mom with the whole big project.

Spring?? What is that? We haven't had that come here yet. But we are always WAY behind in things.
