From Prom Dress to Headboard–Repurposing Art in Clear Lake

It is all the rage these days it seems.  Repurposing old items into something new.  It is what my parents and certainly grandparents called normal.   It was not uncommon for them to recycle items and re-purpose them for another use.  Sometimes it was because of a brilliant idea but more often than not it was as a result of having to make do with something or doing without. I was intrigued when I saw in the local paper, the Globe Gazette, an article featuring an exhibit on display at the Clear … [Read more...]

Teapot Tuesday

Happy Birthday to my big sis today!  Seems appropriate to feature a cute little teapot that she got for me.  This one is perfect for a cup or two and comes with a cozy sweater to keep it nice and warm !  All in my favorite color--red!!!  Hopefully we will be putting all of those sweaters away soon.   “She gave in to a hankering for a cup of tea even though she knew that the idea of a cup of tea-sitting still, calmly sipping-was more appealing than actually sitting still and … [Read more...]

Count the Happies!

I am a happy person.  It is just who I am.  God made me happy.  That, in my humble opinion, is a good thing.  I try to look on the bright side of things.  Glass half full.  Walking on the sunny side of the street.  Living the dream. Several years ago I found a book written by Neil Pasricha called The Book of Awesome.  It was amazing.  I bought multiple copies.  I gave it to family and friends for birthdays and special occasions.  I started my own list. We all go through bumps in the road. … [Read more...]
