Welcome back to Party In Your PJ's.    I hope you find something that inspires you and you link up something to inspire others. Don't forget to share our party with your friends.  It's always nice to see new faces. My apologies for not leaving comments on your links this week.  I've been  limiting my computer time  since experiencing pain in my hand and arm while typing and using the computer mouse.  I'm off to the doctor later this week to see what's going on. I think I may already know - I just hope I'm wrong!  In the meantime, I have some future posts written so I can rest my hand and arm. Say hello to the Co-Hosts: Nina @ Grandma Ideas Facebook  // Pinterest  // Twitter Ann @ The Apple Street Cottage Facebook  // Pinterest  // Instagram This week I shared The Speaker Cabinet : This beautiful piece of furniture was a wreck when I first found it.

The Speaker Cabinet

Image
  As usual, this find has a story that began late last Fall at a yard sale.  When we walked up the driveway, I recognized the man holding the sale. You see, I'd met Mike before - twice.  He does sales for other people and this one was no exception. My husband spotted him first and started to laugh.  When Mike looked up and saw me, my husband announced, "She's back!"   Mike responded with an unenthusiastic,  "I see that."  You see, I drive a hard bargain, my husband has even called me 'ruthless', but, I get good deals.  This day was no exception.....    I spotted this cabinet in the back of the garage and asked Mike how much he was asking for it.   He looked at me and asked, "How much are you thinking?" Dangerous question....The top wasn't even attached! My response?  "I want it for 5 bucks." He laughed.  I smiled! Long story short?  I picked up a few other items and ended up getting the cabinet for $8. I know, Ruthless!  (She

Rosie's Winter Look

Image
  It's February and we've recently had  a big snow storm,   a cold snap, and there's another storm on the way.  Ugh!  I'm not a huge fan of Winter and neither is Rosie.  She decided enough is enough and went in search of a warm winter coat.  This is what she found: This coat was found in a vintage shop a few years ago.  I don't usually buy vintage clothing, but this coat was special.  Clearly Rosie agrees!    She loves the fur collar and trim.   The deep pockets and the fur cuffs are also a favorite! Fortunately, I was able to hide the yellow hat that she loves so much.  There was no way I was letting her ruin the look of this coat, even though she would think it was fabulous !   You may remember her wearing it during a outfit change last year: Doesn't she look 'elegant' in my painting shirt?    T he coat must be keeping her warm since  I haven't heard any complaints.   As you know, Rosie is a bit of a sassy fashionista and i f I had to guess, I'

Heart Box

Image
This paper mache heart box has been sitting on the shelf for too long.  Time to create something for Valentine's Day!   I grabbed some pretty paper napkins, Mod Podge, and a brush.  Remember to separate the layers of the napkins so you're only using one layer.  I had some leftover pieces that were perfect for this small box. Starting with the lid, the Mod Podge was brushed on and the pieces of napkin placed down. When the edge of the lid was covered and dry, I trimmed the top edge with scissors. The top was covered with Mod Podge.   Another piece of napkin was applied. The top edge and the edge inside the box were trimmed with a piece of sandpaper. The box itself was covered in the same manner. A second coat of Mod Podge was applied and I used some plastic wrap to smooth out any bubbles.  For detailed instructions on decoupage with napkins, click HERE . The box was almost done. I had some pink trim that was glued around the edge of the lid. Now it was done. The perfect way to w
