Hi Guys! I am back!! I unintentionally took the summer off, between work and vacations and chauffeuring my little camper around, it left little time to get creative – not to mention writing about it and taking pictures and all the other good stuff that goes into writing a blog post. I wasn’t able to complete any projects like I started out the summer thinking I would. My hallway remains in shambles and the door that I painted is still “hanging out” against the same old wall waiting to become a barn door, as it has since June. I am thinking September is a nice time for renewed starts. Kiddo’s head back to school, summer winding down (boohoo) and life becomes a little more scheduled. I am looking forward to getting down and dirty and working on some projects that never got started and a few that never got finished.
So although I wasn’t getting creative, I had someone else get creative for me this summer! I got a whole new blog design! Laura from Pixel Me Designs re-designed my blog and came up with this! Isn’t it the cutest??!! I just love it, she did an awesome job, I feel like she read my mind, I had ideas floating around but boy she nailed it! It’s so adorable! So welcome to the new and improved My Little House Happy Heart Blog. A super big hug to Laura for all her hard work, expertise and creativity! The redesign has given me the boost I needed to create more stuff and share it to my sweet readers. I am so excited to show it to you guys!
Okie Dokie! So here it goes…I have been eyeing those tiered trays that are all over the place for some time. I noticed a cute galvanized one at the hobby lobby and as I was swooning over it, I decided I would try to make one instead…I gave it a shot and came up with this!
I was searching for three matching trays, plates or dishes at the thrift store, I was lucky enough to come across these two ( not 3 but oh well) little ceramic quiche pans…not galvanized or tin but I figured I could make do. To top it off I found this short little ceramic candle holder, which seemed just about perfect to stack the pans. So how did I keep those things stuck together you ask?? Have you guys ever heard of that E6000 adhesive? I had been wanting to give it a try and this was a good project to start. It’s cool stuff! Dries clear and solidly bonds to most surfaces. I squeezed a glob on both ends of the candlestick and plopped it between the two quiche pans, set it aside to dry and so far it’s seems to hold together really well. I like the stuff!
This was such an easy peasy project, the harder part was styling it. I decided to give a final shout out to summer for this one and used my beach treasures to make this fancy. I know we are getting into Fall but I am hesitant to leave summer behind just yet. I so love the beach and this will be a little reminder of our yearly trek to Ocean City. Plus one week at the beach just didn’t feel like enough, hopefully the shells and the sand will remind me of our lazy summer beach days and take me back for a second.
Well guys, it feels soooo great to be back!!!! I hope my little hiatus didn’t make you forget about me. You can keep up with all my projects on my Facebook Page, so drop by and give it a like! Have fun pondering my new site!!!! It’s so cute!
