We severely lack decor (and furniture but that’s another story). Dressing up the walls of a whole house can prove a costly endeavor and I am brainstorming for frugal but also personal ways to add art and decor on our walls.
My first attempt on painting some modern art that we could actually use in our home, served well to prove that my mom had it ALL wrong. She always believed – unwaveringly -I am some kind of mini-Picasso with great artistic skills. Well, this is what I made before I had my daughter cover the whole thing with black paint to hide my shame:
I wanted a copper accent for quite some time now. I was thinking that perhaps, a pendant would work but I was not budgeting for it. Well, I happily report, I think I scored again at Goodwill. Okay, maybe not “scored” (you’ll be the judge of that) but 3 dollars for all this awesome coppery decor, is a happy moment for me.
I found a vintage (looking) copper (plated) chafing dish slash fondue and immediately thought of not one, not two but, 10 ways to use it at home and none of them include cooking!
Did you notice the super paint offer at Lowes? This is not an affiliate post.
Our local Lowes had a huge promotion, offering paint samples for 99 cents. I had to go get a few. Like, well…over 37 of them (and I am going back for more)!
Few things get one in the spirit of the Christmas holidays, like visiting a well done Santa village. A well known candle factory, based in western Ma creates a sparkly and fun experience for anyone that loves Christmas. Toddlers, children and…tall children (that’s us – grown ups) alike, get thrilled with the trains, the rotating trees, the sparkly ornaments and the enticing smells all around.

Ever been to a Greek farmer’s market? If not, come with me and let’s visit one!
The farmer’s market is a “must go” activity in Greece. The shops are set right in the streets and every neighborhood has at least one farmer’s market every week. Rain or shine, metal tables are set under colorful umbrellas and fill with all sorts of delicious produce. Every family shops there (unless they can’t find the time) as the produce comes straight from the producers and the prices are seriously competitive and often much cheaper than in big stores.
Does it get busy? Think “black Friday” busy, every day.
