    Such fabulous ideas! Thanks for including my link. I absolutely love your blog! What a lovely discovery. Made my day. :) Love your Etsy store too! xo.

    Wow, what great ideas. Im going straight to the hardware store to choose some of my favourite colours.

    • Thanks everyone, happy crafting :)

  • SO SO INSPIRED!! Thanks!!

  • Great ideas!! I love the table! I made the Easter Egg garland and I have a patriotic one coming soon to my blog. =)

    My, my, my…didn’t know I had wasted these when I was trying to choose some paint colors to paint the home….I’m gonna head over to the local hardware store and “casually” take some home!!! Is that stealing?!

    • While I do think it’s a bit cheeky to take whole wads of them, no one is going to mind a few. Especially if you’re like me and spend bucketloads of cash at your hardware store!

Have your say!
