Repurposed Vintage Pie Tin Cloche

What a crazy week.
I feel like I've started a million projects and haven't finished any.
Do you ever have weeks like that?
(maybe that means I'll have a lot to share next week, as these projects come together)
Here's a fun repurpose project I did complete this week.

Thrift Store Bunny Makeover into Faux Chocolate Bunny

Last Spring I made an Easter centrepice for our cabin table
that had a faux chocolate bunny in it.
(you can check it out here)
It was my version of one Martha Stewart had made.
I had searched for the faux chocolate bunny for a while before I found one at Hobby Lobby.
I checked this year and haven't found any there yet.

A few people have asked where I got the bunny from
and because they seem to be hard to find I thought I would share an inexpensive option.

You may already have everything you need to make one.

I Joined the Chalkboard Bandwagon

We all know that chalkboards have been super popular lately.
I finally decided to try my hand at making one.
Last year I found the perfect frame for a chalkboard,
but I tucked it away.

Vintage Style Handmade Horse Boarding Livery Sign

My makeover Monday project for this week started off
as a plywood cut out silhouette of a running horse.
I found it at a thrift store for $3 and thought it was neat,
but I had no idea what I was going to do with it.
(it wasn't painted when I bought it, it was raw plywood)
This horse had been stashed away in my workshop for quite a while and then...
...inspiration struck!
I decided to create a Livery and Boarding sign,
using the horse as the focal point.

Our Cabin in the Snow

Just thought I'd share a glimpse into our world this week.
We are in the northern part of Upstate South Carolina.

Makeover Mondays - Trashy Bread Box

I've been giving a lot of thought to establishing some weekly series blog posts.
My thoughts are going kindof like this:
Makeover Mondays: thrifted finds that were given a new life
Tending the Garden Tuesdays: gardening projects, ideas and tips
What We're Up To Wednesdays: current projects around our cabin
Tasty Thursdays: a recipe using something in season from the garden
Frugal Finds Fridays: my favorite frugal find(s) that week
With that said -
here's my first official Makeover Monday project:
A wood bread box from my dads work.
He saved it from being thrown away because he thought I might be able to "do something with it".
