A Birdhouse Makeover

Since I`m still looking for cheap 
& inexpensive
ways to brighten the 
decor in my kitchen,
I dug out these two birdhouses
that were tucked away and gave
them a makeover.
Here they are before.
Sad & gloomy.

Just a quick FYI…
that little pedestal thingy 
is actually a toothbrush holder!

Happy Summer Teacher Gift

Today is the last day of school 
here in Newfoundland.
The kids are gone, gifts in hand for
their teachers.

I’ve seen this idea floating 
around for a while now and 
I couldn’t wait to give it a whirl.

I love these insulated cups, 
they are perfect
for drinks and smoothies.

I filled the cups with single
serving packets of 
lemonade.

I decorated the cups with fantastic 
paper from My Minds Eye.
So fitting with the alphabet and all!

IMG 3232pm Happy Summer Teacher Gift
I am in love with accordion flowers,
a little piece of paper can make
such a huge statement!

IMG 3232pm2 Happy Summer Teacher Gift
I embellished with a few
school themed chip board 
pieces to finish the look!
