Kids Project for the 4th ~

I thought it would be fun to get the kiddos involved in a little project for the 4th of July - who doesn't love a little red, white & blue?...well at least with glitter!

 I grabbed a few new supplies and a few I had on hand. I just picked up the felt stars for $1 each at JoAnns, the buckets were from Target for $1 each, the sand was on clearance from Pottery Barn for $3.50, the ribbon was on hand and the chopsticks were from Teriyaki last night...don't throw stuff away, you never know when you might want a few wooden sticks! 

Oh, and some glitter from JoAnns as well.

We started by painting on a little glue around the edges and shaking on the coordinating colored glitter...I know rocket science right?


Then I whipped out my hot glue gun and glued on a little ribbon, glued on the chopstick and topped them with the glittered star. 

And here they are...

I am getting excited for the fireworks...and food!

My Love for Rub n' Buff ~

I am sure I have expressed my love for Rub n' Buff before, but I don't think you can say "I love you" too much! Really - you should say it everyday....well to those you love.
I had these two items just sitting around, they are okay, but they needed a little facelift.

Rub n Buff to the rescue (and a little black spray paint of course). 

 I spray painted them both black.

And went to town with the Rub n' Buff in Grecian Gold.

I even painted the knobs and used the Rub n' Buff on those too...I mean why not?

Here is the grass all pretty and super happy with his facelift.

And the drawers are equally as happy - as am I, now I have one more place to shove misc. stuff!

So, if you haven't experienced the awesomeness of Rub n' Buff, I suggest you put in on your list (and I am not getting paid to say this - I swear!).

I Love Tuscan Style ~

I want to apologize for the lack of posts in the recent weeks, we have been dealing with one bug after another, after another at our house - but hopefully we are on the mend!

I was cruising through Houzz (love that site) and found a handful of lovely Tuscan images from JMA - from their photos, it looks like they build a mean home. Here are a few images for your enjoyment!

Mid-Month Be Inspired Link Party ~

As most of you know, during the Summer months I am going to be hosting the Be Inspired link party just once a month - mid month to be exact. It will be sort of a "get me over the mid-month creative hump" kinda party!

On a side note, I really enjoy having giveaways on my blog, and would love to be able to fill in remaining Wednesdays with a giveaway - so, please email me if you are interested in having a giveaway on my blog!

Okay, let us see it. Bring your most fabulous projects and creative ideas for the month - get us through our creative hump - or is it a slump?

And for the "Party rules":
1. Select any project that YOU created that you think will inspire someone else.
2. Add a link of your post to the party - make sure it is a link to the specific post not your blog.
3. Give a short description of your project so we can all see what you are highlighting.
4. Please add a link to this party in your post so everyone can head over and join in the fun!
