Falling for Plaster Leaves…

Plaster on silk Fall leaves

Lately I've been obsessed with decor elements in white - just a little here and there.  Being that it is now Fall, I wanted to do a craft project using white in my Fall tablescape.  I went to Dollar Tree and purchased some silk leaves.  I was pleasantly surprised at the decor selection that they had.  I need to remember to shop here more.  I purchased a bag of 20 Fall leaves for $1.00 - what a great deal.  I was thinking that I could transform ... read more

Matthew is growing up and ... read more

Painted Wing Chair...it worked! wing chair. A great project

Painted wing chair...it worked! There she is, relegated to the corner of the upstairs landing.  Too loud and colorful to be seen in public.  I'm talking about this wing chair of course!  I won this wing chair as a raffle prize at the High Point Furniture Market many years ago. This chair is still very comfortable and in excellent condition.  I just don't care for the gemstone colors and checked pattern.  At one time I got an estimate from an ... read more

Charmed I’m sure…

Wine bottle charm

Are you ready for some football??  We sure are...even though we are a house divided (Roll Tide) we get along very well - as long as our teams win :)  We were ecstatic that college football season finally started and both of our teams won! We were invited to a tailgate party and  knew we were bringing a bottle of wine.  In true 2 Bees fashion we wanted to glam up our bottle and decided to make a wine bottle charm. Last year I was fortunate ... read more
