Sneak Peek Week

We’ve mentioned our upcoming trade show in a few posts—and can’t believe it’s almost here!  This Saturday, we will be at the Red Rooster in New Braunfels, Texas with 15 or so other vendors.  This past weekend, we spent lots of time organizing and planning the final details.  We’ve collected some fabulous pieces and our projects are ready to meet some great new people!  Today, we’d like to share a preview of some of our finds.  These photos show snippets of our vintage kitchen collection.  On Wednesday, we will be posting the full photos with descriptions. For now, can you guess what any of these items are?

Three Step Thursdays

We managed to take a plain jar from ordinary to vibrantly vivacious in three easy steps! We found these adorable little animals in our craft supplies and transformed two jars with only spray paint and hot glue.  Check out our new candy jars! We also think it’s a great “back to school” gift idea- perfect for those special hardworking teachers…

1.  After cleaning jars, spray paint tops and any small plastic toy

Three Step Thursdays

We’re so excited it’s Thursday again! In this week’s project, we are taking a glass bowl and giving it a brand new look with our three simple steps.  We found this  clear glass “fishbowl” at a thrift store and have been so anxious to experiment with our new frosted spray paint.  So without further adieu, we present…….The Frosted Fishbowl!
