I don’t travel nearly as much as I would like to, and I certainly didn’t get to make it down to the Haven Bloggers Conference last weekend, much to my demise. So a group of us bloggers, 24 to be exact (list here) lead fearfully by Julie at Lilacs and Longhorns decided to pull together a little tour of our blogs. We are all featuring our favorite projects just for fun or for pity sake, take your pick! Here are a few of mine. As I mentioned, since I don’t get to travel as much as I’d like, I have developed a vivid imagination to compensate; and my projects are often inspired by places I have been to, places I want to go to, or places I may never get to.
A Fifth Avenue hotel, overlooking Central Park at dusk:
Transforming storage into lighting
Vintage Paris as Coco Channel is putting final touches on her newest fashion:
Salvaging my mother’s sewing buttons
The ceiling in a favorite restaurant from my college days:
Recreating texture on storage
Humid summer nights, watching golf balls disappear
into the darkness at the forest preserve driving range:
Salvaging an item in reminiscence of a friendship
A day at the flea market:
Recalling those old wooden, labeled crates
Travels yet to come:
Utilizing reminders and inspiration
I’m feeling rather intellectual and deep at the moment, but it’s really pretty simple.
Weaving stories of experiences and travel into my projects is one of the things I like to do most.
DIY and craft bloggers aren’t all alike. Each and everyone have their very own style, personality and passions. So, come on and take a tour by following along below.
