Well, we have plenty of vintage decks of cards around here. Don't know as I'd want 'em on my walls, though. ;)

I, too have plenty of "vintage decks of cards" laying around. Funny the junk we keep. Now, my junk is called "vintage."
Blessings, andrea

Grandma G said...

Hey, those cards aren't "junk", Andrea! We still use them! Well, if we ever play cards, that is... which is rare. :)

I have been reading your blog for several years; don't know if I've ever commented or not, but I just thought I should tell you I really appreciate your DIY idea posts. I've used several of the tutorials you linked to, and I have lots more bookmarked for my next creative fling. Thanks so much; I hope you keep doing them!

Yes, the bathmat is a super cool idea. And then I happened on the side bar, cool things on etsy. The fabric that posted? Uh, I now have fabric on its way to me from Australia! That whole etsy thing that you post? Way TOO tempting, especially when I see fabric. I have no self-control. *sigh* *happy sigh*

Screen printing with the Mod Podge sounds so brilliant. Why didn't I think of that? Very cool. We enjoy screening anything and everything lately.

I love West Elm... modern and affordable!

Mod Podge Amy said...

Those are awesome - and the project that use Mod Podge give me the funny tingles.

Whoops, that sounds bad.

Oh thanks! Discovered Knock Off Wood the other day and have been bookmarking ideas like crazy. We just finished creating our own built-ins, though, so I think my husband needs a break from DIY. Too bad. Those are some great ideas!
