35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Pretending


Pretending to be crafty that is. These are 2 of the glass slide necklaces I did. Both are a winter theme. I hung them on the tree for now. I'm quite pleased at how they turned out for my first try.I wasn't too,too crazy about the 1.5x1.5". I felt they were a little big but I just got a box of 1x1" and they seem tiny. Next step will be actual rectangle microscope slides. I really, really, really need a new printer too to do what I really want. More of a family heirloom kind of piece rather than these which are made with purchased stock photo's.

Another DIY project I have lined up for the coming year is this:

I'll be doing this in the bedroom. I've got various fabrics picked out that I love and will be doing this in a few different sizes. I think I'm going to do something similar with plates in the dining room. This room is stale. I haven't done anything in here in years. I would also like to have a few French memo boards under my belt in the New Year.We always have small loose pictures around and I can't put everything in a frame!
