A Little Bit of Springtime

A Little Bit of Springtime

Today I was cleaning up some branches after a harsh rain storm in the morning. The sun was out and it was lovely. I have two Bougainvillea bushes in pots. They belong to the four o' clock family. I love the plant but not a big fan since it has these killer thorns. I keep them in pots so they don't go crazy.  I thought I would bring in a couple of stems for the table.

Happy Thursday and welcome to March. I am so excited that you dropped by. We have had a lovely week. some bad thunder storms yesterday but then the sun came out and it was sunny. The plants are loving the sun and the rain. Lots of strawberries coming and blackberries. I hope I get them before the birds.

Almost all of the seeds I planted last week are coming up. It seems like they popped up over night. If this weather stays warm, they should be well on their way on a couple of weeks. 

I hope your weather has warmed up some too. I know my Mom in Pennsylvania has not had snow for a couple of weeks. She gets so excited when the sun is out, even if it is cold. 

I Hope you enjoy all of the inspiration you find at the party. We have the best bloggers and they are all so creative. Hope you like the features! I picked a little of everything this week. 

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #thursdaayfavoritethings #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday! I am so excited that you dropped by. We have had a very lovely week with warm weather. We had some rain on Sunday but that has been it. 

My dogs love being outdoors, especially Louie. He just wants to sit on the driveway and watch cars and people go by. Mostly he likes to bark and anyone that walks, rides their bike or jogs. He doesn't want anyone to get too close to the house. He is such a protector. 

So although our back yard is where the pool is and our covered patio, they like it out the side by the garage. Needless to say, I spend most of my time there with them. I take my projects and work on them there. I finished planting some of the flowers I bought over the weekend and started to sand a chair. Tomorrow is to be nice again, so I will finish working on the chair and wash my car.

I Hope you enjoy all of the inspiration you find at the party. We have the best bloggers and they are all so creative. Hope you like the features!

Thrifted Vintage Shoe Shine Makeover

Thrifted Vintage Shoe Shine Makeover


Hi dear friends and welcome to this months Thrift Store Challenge. I am so excited to be joining this group of upcyclers that take thrift store items and repurpose them.

Upcycled Shoe Shine Box

Upcycled Shoe Shine Box

I have had this shoe shine box for over a year that I got at a garage sale (before covid) and just the other day, decided to update it for something usable. It's not like I shine my shoes these days. lol!

I needed something to store my seed packets in and this would be perfect. 

Thrift Store Challenge. #upcycle #thriftstore #eclecticredbarn

It didn't start out this way. It wasn't in bad shape but the inside was rather gross. 

Thrift Store Challenge. #upcycle #thriftstore #eclecticredbarn

Thrift Store Challenge. #upcycle #thriftstore #eclecticredbarn

First I removed the part where you placed your foot. I had to patch the holes. Then I sanded the piece. 

The tricky part was getting the sticky stuff out from the inside. Once that was done I removed the hinges and the clasp from the front.

Next I painted the entire piece, inside and out with some white paint I had on hand. I had to give it two coats.

While the paint was drying, I tried to clean the hinges and clasp, but they still did not look good so I spray painted them with a brown hammered paint. 

I found a seed image online and printed it out to place on the top. I used modge podge to secure it to the top.

Thrift Store Challenge. #upcycle #thriftstore #eclecticredbarn

Now it was time to put it back together. I put the hinges back on.

And then the clasp in the front.

My seed packets went in next but these are not all of them because I was planting with some of them. The box is big for the seeds I have, but I am excited to have them in one place.

It organized my seeds and finished a project that was long over do.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Happy Monday. so delighted to see you here. I hope you had an awesome weekend. I know it has been very cold up north  and many places have had snow, so if you are there, stay warm and be safe. 

I planted some blueberry bushes on Saturday and put some butternut squash seeds in pots. Our planting season has started, which is crazy with the wintery weather up north. Funny how there are the different seasons and weather conditions between the north and the south. My azaleas even started to bloom which is early for them, but we have had some warm temps lately and they got confused. 

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Happy Thursday! I always get so excited to see you here. It has been an interesting week - it seems the weather has been cold, icy and snowy. I hope you are staying warm and being safe. 

I know this is rather crazy, but I bought some blueberry bushes to plant. I also planted some butternut squash seeds. People are experiencing freezing temps and I am planting. Crazy but it is that time of year here in Florida. I also bought some flowers to plant in my pots. If you don't get them early, you won't get any good varieties. 

I Hope you enjoy all of the inspiration you find at the party. We have the best bloggers and they are all so creative. Hope you like the features!
