It's the Art News Round-Up!

Let's take a look at some fascinating current events in the art world! After three weeks of impressive auction sales, it seems that the art market has never been better. The big numbers of the summer auction season do not tell the full story, however, as many sales are courtesy of super-collectors and the artworks bought are incredibly high-end. Thus, the numbers put out belie the increasing stratification of the art world and downplay the squeeze low-end galleries are feeling. learn more here. The destruction of cultural and art objects in Mali, at the hands of extremists, is now being categorized as a war crime by the International Criminal Court. Read more here. After running into difficulties finding gallery space to display their art in Boston, several artists started White Walls Boston, which consists of a U-Haul truck -filled with works- that travels to different neighborhoods. What a great way to bring art to under-served communities and to break free of the standard gallery system! See more here.

Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat Dessert


I have been making these Pilgrim hats for several years and they are always a big hit at Thanksgiving. And the best part is, they are EASY!

You will need:

  • Chocolate cookies (I used Keebler Striped Shortbread and turn them over)
  • Reese's individually wrapped peanut butter cups (unwrapped) :)
  • Orange frosting in a tube

Place the cookie striped side down, put a little frosting under the Reese's Peanut Butter cup. Set that in the center of the cookie.

Take the orange frosting and put a bead around the bottom of the Reese's.  Make a square on it to be the buckle.  And you're done!  How much easier could that be?!

Some of the orange frosting looks a little crazy, but I don't worry too much.  As soon as the kids see them, they're gone--crazy buckles and all!

Beadboard Cabinet Redo

I found this skinny cabinet at a garage sale a few weeks ago.  I was looking for something for my son's college apartment. It was the right size, but the more I thought of it, it was not the right piece for a college guy.   I decided to get him something else and would keep this for myself.

I wasn't thrilled with the color, but loved the cabinet itself.  

I like the patina of the wood shelves inside, so decided to leave them.

Easy enough to change what I didn't like....
I painted several coats of white on it 

I then distressed it with sanding blocks and an electric sander.

I added old blue canning jars and the old can of seed packets on the top.

I'm not sure where I'm going to put it long-term, but here it is in the entry for now.

Weight! Another Neat Scale Redo!

I found this old, dirty Dayton scale at a garage sale this summer. 

My husband started by taking everything apart. He said it was very complicated and he wasn't sure if he'd ever get it back together. (But I knew he would!)

He got rid of all of the paint.

 And did lots of polishing...

He painted it green.

We found water decals on eBay.

 There were LOTS of parts that had to be put back together....

He spent hours reassembling it.

I think he did another beautiful job!!

Thanks for your visit!

Kitchen Backsplash Update

Recently, we had our floors refinished and painted all of those rooms.  After painting the kitchen,  we decided that we would like a new backsplash.

We brought home lots and lots of different choices.  Most were nice, but just too busy for us.  We love subway tiles and love travertine, so when we found this tile, our decision was made. 

This picture (kind of) shows the old 4" granite backsplash. 

There was lots of patching to make the walls perfectly smooth.

Some sections had too many cutouts to use the mesh pieces.  This is where each piece was individually hung on the wall.

It took my husband one evening during the week and the weekend and he was done.  Yes, he's a keeper!

 Our kitchen isn't very big, but is definitely workable for us.  I'm thrilled with it and so thankful for such a talented husband!

Thanks for your visit!

Great Memories of Our Old Backyard

The other day I was on Pinterest and this picture popped up that someone had pinned from the HGTV site.  (I had originally uploaded it to the RMS site)   How exciting to see our backyard!  It was our old one that we put years and years into making our own.  We moved from there a few years ago, but have great memories of the place.

Here it was when we moved in in 2000.  Yes, a bit rough!!  :)

When we first redid this area, we had a swing set, as our kids were in grade school. They loved that thing! After they outgrew it, we put our firepit up there.  It was such a great place to relax!

This is actually after we had cleaned it up quite a bit.  I remember lots and lots of 2x6's stacked against the fence, rotting....  I think the prior owner's plan was to build raised beds.  Because the soil is clay, clay, and more clay, a lot of people do make raised beds.  We decided to rototill truckloads of compost in instead. 

Max would play for hours, chasing racquetballs. When he'd get tired, he knew exactly where to cool off. He would lay in the second level with the cool water flowing on his back. He would set his racquetball down and it would stay right there until he was ready to play some more. :)   HGTV also had this picture on their site for Pets in the Yard.  Max was a star!  :)
