What would you do with this thingy?

Ever been walking through your favorite thrift store and bought something that you were in love with but had no idea what to do with it?

Angie at The Country Chic Cottage has the answer-err.. a way to find one!

Remember my post about finding a Goodwill? I found this fun little thing as well.
Ya, you guessed it, no idea what to do with it. But it is so pretty! So I turned to Angie and her awesome group of readers. So head on over to The Country Chic Cottage and offer up some of your awesome crafty ideas! I can't wait to see what everyone thinks I should do with it :)


  1. My mom has something that looks similar to that at her house. Her's is a stand that has a glass container with marbles and candles in it. If you could find some type of glass thing to fit in there, you could fill it with whatever matches your house...seashells, marbles, potpourri, candy, flower petals, etc.

    You could also find a round plate/platter about the same size (or a little bigger) and use it as a serving dish or decoration.

  2. I am going to agree with Robin... that is what I would do with it.

    We have missed you on the forum. Was beginning to think you abandoned us. I have been good, just busy. Hoping to do a little blogging today between the housework and other things.


  3. Thanks for the post! I am so glad you joined!! And when I was at lunch -- someone had TWO of these on their front porch with potted plants on top. I swear they looked just like this -- if I would have had my camera...

  4. Just incase you missed my response to your comment, thanks SO much for thinking of my napkins for your wedding guide!! I think that's a great idea, and wishing I had a guide like that when I got married! Looking forward to reading more of your frugal ideas!! :)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
