Where it all started

xPiggy couple Last week I showed you the makeover I gave to my Moose, but he’s not the only thing getting a makeover round these here parts. I’ve been having a ton of fun giving updated looks to a my thrift store finds collection and it’s basically the best hobby in the world. Especially since it involves lots of coats of paint, so whenever I’m not sure what project I want to work on I can slap a fresh coat of paint onto whatever little trinket is lined up. These guys are the ones who started it, though. They’re basically the cutest, sweetest little couple in the world and they wanted to update their look a little bit. They were so polite and reserved and very very very cheap that I figured what the hell. I’d see what I could do. Eventually I’ll start remembering to take before photos, but just take my word that their looks need a little updating. And I think the glitter tie is my favorite part.

DIY Bird Pin

I’ve been admiring the blog Diversions for quite some time, and in particular, I love this pin she has. I’ve been admiring it for a solid month or so before realizing that I could make my own. I had a leftover wooden bird silhouette from something or other, so I used some painters tape, an exacto knife, acrylics, hot glue, pin back, and felt to make…

I’m in love. It was super easy–it took about half an hour total, and I’ve worn it almost daily. This is what it looks like actually on:
