St. Patricks Day Decor

I have this beautiful shelf my Pappy made for me.  It is one of a kind. I love it.  He made it from a Window arch and added a crown molding shelf. It looks a lot like a Mantle but it doesn't hang over a fireplace.
 In an effort to decorate a little but not overhaul my home. (Lots of work, 4 kids you get the picture)  But I thought this would be a great place to have seasonal decorations
and not be to much for me to handle. 

So here it is. Pretty simple, but fun.

I bought the foam shamrocks at Joanns and strung them on some Twine I got from
 Pick Your Plum.
 (Love that site. The link is on the right.
 What do they have today???)

Its a freebie on my blog .

My cute little shamrocks came from Joanns.
The iron crown was a piece I had on  a shelf.
Vintage window came from an old house. They were replacing there windows
and threw out the old ones. {SCORE}
The wreath was a vine on clearance at Michaels I bout a few years ago.  I just wrapped it into a circle and wired it together.
In total my mantel updo for St. Patty's day totaled less than $20
Fun, Simple & Cheap!
Just the way I like it.

Home Made for the Holiday {Grand parents}

I have this Wonderful, Crafty Neighbor.  She is amazing.  She doesn't have a blog to follow cuz she is busy teaching her 5 girls how to craft, cook and sew. And let me tell you, those girls (the older ones of course) craft, sew and cook just like there Momma. Amazing!!! I don't know how she does it.  
So I asked my friend if she would be willing to help me out with our Hand Made for the Holidays.
(secretly I really needed this tutorial so I can make one of my own)

She has been making these for a bit and I just love them.  Each one has its own personality and a little something special about it.  Any Granny would be Tickeled Pink to have this beauty to wear.  So here you go.. Click on the link and it will take you to a Google doc with step by step to make your own.

Today's Tutorial is brought to you by Pick Your Plum. (If you want to check our Pick your Plum click on the link on the right.)  I love this company.  Awesome crafts supplies at half the price. They do an item a day for great prices.  I love getting up in the morning (7am MST) and seeing what's new. I am kind of an addict.  For 2 reasons: 
 1. I am a craft addict.  If I see something that is cute, easy, and my style I will buy it.  
2.  There prices are so good. I can't pass the up.  I love making crafts for a bargain.  

I have several Projects I have made with Pick Your Plum items and some just waiting to be used (Mostly cuz I loved the item and didn't have a purpose. Yet... But the price was so good!)

One of the items are these beautiful charms used in today's post. Here are a few others.
Hair Clips


Chalkboard and Dry Erase Vinyl

I also have a  nice box  full of goodies I am still trying to decide what to do with.
(It was a Saturday special grab bag.  It was like getting an early Christmas. Yipee for me!)

Home Made for the Holiday Day 6 For the Ladies

I was at a craft show and a local vendor was selling jeans and jewelry.  All was manufactured.  When you bought a pair of jeans you got to choose a piece of jewelry.  I found a necklace I loved and she ended up getting it with her purchase.  I decided to recreate it with a little twist.  Here is what I cam up with.
