Happy Friday, my friends. How has your week been? Mine was a little stressful. Every day seems to bring a new uncertainty.
Ed and I had to make the hard decision to cancel a planned week-long vacation with my family in Ocean City, NJ.
It is hard not being able to see my siblings and going to the shore where we have so many fond memories. We are a close knit family, even though we live far apart. This is the second trip with them that had to be canceled.
New Jersey has a 14-day quarantine order in place for anyone coming from states were the numbers of cases and deaths are up. Sadly, South Carolina is on the list. :-( No going “down the shore” for us this year.
I am looking on the bright side though. It is the only thing to do through these uncertain times. Now I will focus on doing things around the house that I started, but haven’t finished… like cleaning out, editing and reorganizing my very messy craft room aka…studioffice. :-) It truly is a mess as I have been using it as my Zoom fitness room as well as my place to create.
Yesterday I finished a project that I am excited to show you. With no comings and goings over the weekend, I will be able to take photos of it and get the post written for next week. A little preview… it was made with something that has to do with wine.
Now on to a few positive things that inspired me this week…
I have been looking for these glasses for a long time to replace a few of mine that broke since I bought my first collection of them back in the early 1990’s.
I love bubble glass and these Tag brand glasses are very hard to find for less than $100 for a set.
I use the both the short and tall glasses for drinks, but use them even more as candle holders all through the year. I was excited to be able to find 4 before they sold out, and to find this knock-off set and also a resource to buy only one for half the price. Now I can build my collection back up
I have never seen this done. WOW! and it lasts!

If you love outdoor flowers, these DIY planters are classic and will go with any style home.
I love finding ways to use scraps from just about anything. Look what you can do with wood scraps to decorate your deck, porch or patio.
One more project that uses old wood to makeover a modern and simple entryway.
I am all about home offices and how they can help you become more productive. This one is light, bright and so pretty.
Since I can’t travel, I am taking time to enjoy the next best thing… online tours of charming towns I have never visited.
If this were my closet makeover, I would never want to close the door.
I am a big fan of these biker shorts for summer. I live in them with a longer style t-shirt. The best part – they have a pocket for my phone when I go out to get my 10,000 steps. When I get home, I spritz this on my face, neck and all over. It smells so good. It has become my summer fragrance.
Friday is always Pizza Night at my house. I am going to make a version of this tonight.
Do you have any weekend plans? Whatever you do, either staying happy at home or getting to go out and about… I hope it is a good one.
