Blog Hop!

My very first Blog Hop!!

I was nominated by the lovely and talented Alex of Hydrangea Girl. Her quirky love for skulls, graffiti, and all things slightly geeky are right up my alley, so it was only natural that we would end up blog friends. I kind of want to eat her up like a Zombie with a wagon full of brains. Please check out her fantastic DIY projects at Hydrangea Girl, and see her nominating post here.

So, here we go... as best as I can tell, I am to answer 4 questions and then nominate 2 more bloggers. This, I think I can do.

Garden Labels: Cutlery and Copper

I bought a letter punch set last year at Lee Valley, but never got around to using it for anything.

This year, however, I have made some garden labels!

I had an idea to make them using wood but didn't like the results.
I then thought that perhaps aluminum sheet might work...

Art Deco Hutch - Part 2

So last you heard, things rapidly went downhill from the last post, which you can find HERE.

In the description of this blog, I say "the sometimes disastrous, sometimes fantastic results of D.I.Y.".
This post definitely fits into the "disastrous" category!

the whole finish came off within minutes of putting it on... kind of pilling like an old sweater.
SOOO in for a penny, in for a pound. I began the arduous task of scraping of the sticky, goopy finish.
Gross.
And messy.

Growin' Stuff: One Become Two

Last year we had a fantastic idea to have a garden box to grow some of our own veggies.
To my mind, it was a great success.

I blogged about it here:

It was a 6'-0" by 12'-0" box and did extremely well for us last year.


It was so exciting to see the first of the plants starting to grow from seed, and even more exciting to see it really flourish.

Reclaimed Coat Rack: Everything Old is New Again

This house and the modest sized yard, have been a great source of found items. I kind of love how I have managed to find new uses for them.

Included in this found items list is an old coat rack that we found in the shed.


It is a simple design, not necessarily something to sand, stain, and bring inside, but certainly can be a very useful item.
