I like it when my friends send me special little notes with ideas or projects they have been working on. Here are a few things they shared with me recently that brought a smile to my face.
This first project isn’t an up-cycled project, but it is awfully cute.
Crab cupcake from my friend Karen – she said she thought of me when she came across this.
My gosh these are adorable. Recipe and instructions here.
A great recycling project.
I have been wanting to put in some raised flower beds for a while now. When my friend shared this project that she and her husband have been working on, I was smitten.
Caroline and Phil went to a local Habit store and purchased these shutters for next to nothing. Phil braced the shutters with wood and metal brackets for strength and durability. Awesome recycling idea.
Not recycled, but do you like easy fast baking? My friend, Peace girl, sent this recipe to me, after my disaster in the kitchen making a cherry crisp for my dad for father’s day. We won’t go into that.
I rarely cook with processed/packaged foods – not my style. However, this is so easy peasy even I could do it.
Pour 1 can cherry pie filling and 1 can crushed pineapple in a 9×13 pan (no need to grease) Mix well. Next-sprinkle a box of yellow cake mix over the top. (Yes dry cake mix) Next-melt a stick and a half of butter and pour over the top. Bake 350 ’til browned 35-45 mins.
Yep, I’m going to give it a try – every now and again, I like to walk on the wild side.
Here is an up-cycled project I recently completed. Not sure what I was thinking but I didn’t take any photos of the process.
I made this tote bag from an old skirt that I purchased at a Goodwill store.
The white fabric is a vintage table cloth I have had for twenty years. It was torn and horribly stained, so I just cut around that and used the salvageable parts. The pom-pom fringe is vintage as is the blue yarn daisy and the blue ribbon. The center green and blue fabric I cut from new fabric that I am using to make curtains for my living room.
My new go everywhere tote.
Hope y’all are working on some fun projects.
See you later, Bye!
