Feature Friday #10 - Shoestring Elegance


As you know i love chalk paint.  No i dont just love it, I have completely fell head over heels with it.

I know its quite expensive, but if you make your own chalk paint as i did when i refurbished an old set of drawers and my dream sideboard its so so cheap and works just as well as the real thing.

Due to my love of chalk paint, i wanted to introduce you to Theresa who resides at Shoestring Elagance.  Theresa has created many chalk paint projects on her amazing blog.  


Theresa describes herself as living an abundant life on whatever budget you have been Blessed with!! and her blog Shoestring Elegance features  thrift store finds, that are truly treasures, (or just need a little TLC to make them so) to simple techniques,that make you say "why didn't I think of that " There's always some fun style that we LOVE..but, it needn't break the bank to duplicate,

















Shoestring Elegance offers so many amazing DIY projects, recipes and weekly link up party.  So pop the kettle on, enjoy a slice of cake and relax for an hour or so.

With Enough Coffee, I Could Rule the World
Altered Artworks

This bookcase/shelving unit has held many things over the last 25 years including children's books, dolls and teddy bears, school work, sport trophies, prom photos and finally some craft supplies.  I relocated my craft supplies, and saw this unit's great potential to be more than just a utilitarian bookcase.

Whether your goal is to improve your health or to support sustainable agriculture, buying organic
may be the right choice for you.

Whole Berry Raspberry Curd, sweet and tart this condiment is made with fresh raspberries and is the perfect ingredient for pastry fillings or just smeared on your morning toast!


Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub
Bargain Briana

We have been on a DIY Beauty kick lately! I love these easy to make recipes at home that also work wonders. It is also something somewhat inexpensive that my daughter and I can enjoy together. This Lemon Sugar Hand Scrub not only smells delicious, it will work wonders on softening your hands!


PINA COLADA BREAD PUDDING WITH VANILLA RUM SAUCE – DISNEY CRUISE LINES
THE DISNEY CHEF

I recently discovered that I love bread pudding.  Like a lot.  Of course, I made this discovery at Disney after having far too much banana bread pudding at Tusker House’s character breakfast…  And too many pots of English bread pudding at Earl of Sandwich…  And staying at the Polynesian and smelling the awesome bread pudding every day for a week…



Patriotic Clothespin Wreath
Embracing Creativity

This Independence Day, Jill Bauer, QVC’s Home-Savvy Hostess, has the perfect patriotic d├ęcor tips to help celebrate America in style and she’s allowed me to share her easy peasy tutorial with you all.  I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to make this craft!  I think it will be one that my little girl will like to help me out with!
