Some ‘Make it Yours Day’ Favorites

August 7, 2010
Here are a few things I’m loving from this week’s Make it Yours Day!

DSC07158[1] Hannah at Rubies and Pearls made this fabulous flatiron/curling iron cozy.  I definitely could have used this when I was on vacation last week!

012[1] I just love the makeover Cassie at Primitive and Proper gave an old Danish Modern bench.   Looks brand new!

IMG_1436[1] Liz from The Nifty Nest shared pickles she made with veggies from her sister’s garden!  I have a recipe for bread and butter pickles from my Grandma that I’ll be trying out for the first time this summer.  Thanks for the inspiration Liz!

IMG_2807[1] You just have to go over to visit Cindy at Cottage Instincts and see her amazing porch reveal.  Gorgeous colors and fabrics and a lot of work created an amazing space.  Makes me long for a porch of my own!  I think my back deck will be getting its own makeover soon.

IMG_4206[1] Sharon at Elizabeth and Co. remade an end table in this lovely shade of blue.  So pretty!
