Everyone loves handmade, right?!
I always loved the handmade treasures the best. Because they really are just that, treasures.

PIN it to save it!

I worked on our screened porch today, putting the final touches on it. It’s finally done! Yippee. :)
If you remember, I started working on it last year and didn’t get it quite finished before the weather turned cold.
I’m so happy to have it done for this year. I’ll be sharing it next week…stay tuned!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Thank you for all the lovely gift ideas! While my mom is no longer with us, I have daughters who would enjoy some of these wonderful gifts. It was great to review some of the items you repurposed and made into some awesome products! I also saw some new ones (for me) that I had not seen before – the domed chest and the French bucket as well as the scrubs! The details and links you share make all these doable! I did post a comment on the domed chest as it brought back several fond memoires for me. Enjoy the rest of the week and weekend.

    1. Aw, yes, I understand. I lost my mom in 2013. But you are right, we all have “mothers” in our lives that we love! The scrubs and body butter are so fun…those are my favorites. :) Yes, you did…and I love that. I’m so happy that it brought back fond memories for you. Hugs to you, Sue! xoxo
