Making Broken Beautiful | No. 16


December 3, 2015 by Terry

Still resting after my little back surgery!  Making pom poms on the sofa with my furry babies and watching a little T.V.  :)

I love all the Christmas inspiration linked up last week and hopefully after this weekend is over (it’s the Little Deer Market!), I will have room to start my own decorating!

This is the perfect craft to do with your kids and I think it is a brilliant use of cardboard boxes!  You could do this with any scale of box!  Pili from My Sweet Things shares the how to’s of making this cardboard village.

EntriWP shared this stunning Mid-Century Modern piece.  I usually don’t gravitate towards MCM style but the uniqueness of this piece really caught my eye.  You must take a closer look at the unique handles on this piece, I love it!  Well done!


Salvaged Inspirations literally made my heart leap when I saw this beautiful dresser!  The colors, the hardware and the styling = PERFECTION!  So lovely!


Lastly, I thought these coffee cup signs were a brilliant use of old ceiling fan blades.  Keri from Repurposing Junkie shares the how to’s…


I hope you have all had a great week!  Let’s get to linking shall we?

Remember… ANYTHING GOES for December so share, share, share :)!

So … the usual rules for this party have been cancelled for December!  It’s time to link up All Things Christmas!
