OMG! Silhouette! 1st project idea.

I could hardly believe it! Over 5000 entries in the Silhouette giveaway at and I won!! I cannot wait to try it out. Here is my first project idea. This plaque was $3 at Salavation Army. It is 14 inches x 9.5 inches. I want to paint it and create vinyl letters to display our family name (Moore) and the year we were married (2001). Should I paint it dark with light letters? Or paint it a light color and add dark letters?

6 New Tables!

My kitchen table Craiglist find. I loved the size and the price.
It came with 4 matching chairs but we have moved out 2 of them and replaced them with 2 kid chairs. I would LOVE to paint everything glossy black! I may need some help with that.

My first garage sale purchase this year (in May). I saw this cute white table when I was driving by and I had to stop the car and take a look. Only $2. It needs a fresh coat of paint but it is a perfect craft table for the girls in "grandma's room".

Great deal! $15
I can't wait to sand this down and paint it white! I am even considering adding padding on the top and covering it with fabric for nice new seating in our family room. I would have to chop off a few inches of the legs so it wasn't too tall.

IKEA table and 2 chairs. This is a great little kids table. I paid $5 for this one. And this is our 2nd one. We actually bought this table and chairs set from IKEA brand new for $20 last year. It is so handy. When I found another for $5 I knew it would get used! This one is in my oldest daughters room. The other one is in the playroom being used as a "kitchen" table.

Simple little side table. $5

Cute. Adorable. Perfect.
It fits PERFECT in our kitchen. ADORABLE for tea parties! CUTE fabric on the chairs but my youngest tried to add color to them with her black markers. I do want to replace the fabric. I am looking for the right cupcake fabric.

Girls craft weekend

My aunt hosts a girls weekend for all the cousins. There are 6 girls under 7 years. We get together to do crafts and eat great food while the guys go hunting.
Over the summer, during my garage sale adventures, I have been picking up different crafts and projects for the girls. Last year we made soap and jewelry and sculpted clay and more. This year we can paint beads, make charm jewelry, use a flower press, mold bouncy balls, paint sun catchers, and create mosaic art. I paid anywhere from 25 cents to 3 dollars per set. We have over 10 projects here and I got them all for around 15-20 bucks total. Most of the boxes have never been opened. The ones that have been opened are perfect to use as supplies!
See you soon ladies!! Watch out. We might get glitter everywhere!

Gumball machine

Candy! Gumballs! I can't wait to fill this with colorful candies. I found this for $2 and cleaned it all up! It's 11 inches tall and it's in great shape. Now which room do we put it in? Maybe the girls can use money they earn to buy sweet treats! A happy accessory for our home!
I have actually seen someone transform theirs into a fish tank. Interesting idea!
