Here come the Olympics...

We are starting to get very excited for the olympics in our house.  How can you not when you turn on the T.V. and see it everywhere right?  But we really are getting excited to watch all of the games!!!

A little flower pot...

I decided to try a little mod podge treatment on an old  terra cotta pot the other day and it turned out pretty cute!  I took a few pictures along the way.  It is sooo easy to do this transfer, don't be surprised if you see all of my pots outside turn into pots like this!

1st I painted the pot with a Martha Stewart paint in "Tailors Chalk".  I did this very quickly and not to neatly but I thought it didn't really matter, a plant will be in it, right?

Then I found a french graphic I liked on the "Graphics Fairy" blog and used a matte finish Mod Podge to adhere it to the pot

I let it dry overnight and then used a little water to peel off the paper and voila it turned out great!

I really like it even with some sand and a candle in it.

Try this technique it is really easy and looks great!

Fourth of July Mantel...

Well, yesterday I got inspired to do a few 4th of July decorations in our family room.  Of course I didn't want to spend any money on this because it will probably be up for a week or so.  So I went outside and cut some flowers from the backyard and then went to my scrap booking drawer and found some blue and red scrapbook paper along with some ribbon.  I went into the kitchen and pulled out some pitchers, I just happen to have a red one and had to decide which white one I wanted to use and then through it all together.  It is definitely festive and I hope it will help make the holiday a fun one!

Happy Independence Day 2012!!
