updating a topiary for a dollar

Exhibit A: Apple topiary. Cute from the waist up, but not so cute pot. It's all glued together though. What to do? Exhibit B: 99 cent planter from IKEA. I put the old pot inside the new one. It fit perfectly and now my apple topiary is cute from head to toe. No cutting, no gluing, no disassembling. I love cheap easy fixes. ;) … [Read more...]

However, when I was patching the hole and ended up with the above result, the reson I never finished the job is because I got totally sidetracked on a different … [Read more...]

Goodwill {finally} rocks

Goodwill freaking ROCKS. Yes, you read that right. Allison is actually saying something nice about Goodwill. I went to Goodwill on the fly and to say I SCORED is an understatement.

Huge tray: Vinyl Coo-coo clock kit: FIVE rolls of vinyl for $.99 each! I got one each of the chairs and phone booths, and … [Read more...]
