Repurpose: Reflections of an old lamp ...


This is a perfect refab. Horribly dated hall lamp becomes a desirable, really beautiful mirror. Complete DIY at Design Sponge



Repurpose: Baby-Food-Jar craziness...


So... you had a baby.  And you have all sorts of good intentions about making your own baby food etc.  And maybe you actually do it (it's doable).  But you will still buy some of these jars. And even a few of them pile up. But now that I've compiled this post I have these words of wisdom for you: KEEP THEM!  I had no idea just how many things could be done with the little beasts. I mean the jars, not the babies. Not that you shouldn't keep your babies.  I just mean that in no way do I advocate/promote/ condone the upcycling of babies. Just jars. Jeepers.

DIY: Beeswax flowers ...


This little DIY from Garden Therapy is making my Friday.  I'm thinking of flowering teas... you know the dried blooms that you put in boiling water and watch open?  These candles would be a great way to use old mason jars ... it also means that you can pop a lid on your beautiful creation and surprise whoever gets to open it.
