I would like to present the following ''Five lovely BLOGGERS''
this prestigious Award~~


Fried up some asparagus in alittle oil.. adding garlic powder S&P.. delish much better tasting then steaming or boiling~~

I bought a nice pineapple then sliced some for shikabobs and then ''cubed'' some threw it into the freezer in alittle baggy.. makes great icecubes in ice tea(:)


These are two different window ideas ..
Hang them from a tree~~ One is painted ferns on glass.. I laid the ferns on then just lightly sprayed them with a cream colored paint..

and the other(no glass) has a rusty picket fence staple gunned on then I just slipped the rusty metal star into the frame..

I use G-sale plates and use them for treat plates or sandwiches.. I epoxy'd on the inexpensive glass candle sticks to make little serving plates..
Have a little chip I see(:)


  1. Hi Patty!
    Thanks for stopping by! Love all your great ideas. Your workroom looks really well organized. Mine is total chaos right now! Hope you come back soon!!

    Hugs, Sherry

  2. Hi Patty, your craft area looks great to me and I bet you know just where everthing is the green baskets and tubs. That ia great idea for storing tissue and ribbons, mine are always in such a jumble.
    The candle stick plates are so cool....I'm tucking that idea away. Have a great week. Hugs, Linda

  3. I LOVE that cute pic of you in your work space!! At least you have a space...if I had one it would be cluttered and I just move my stuff around to whatever room I want to be's not pretty! We are looking for new bedroom furniture and I want a desk for the corner.

    Great idea with the candle sticks and plates...those would make CUTE gifts...especially with some cookies or cake on them.

    I adore that window with the star...very clever you are!!

  4. Thanks for all the ideas. You are so smart. I love organization and you did a great job. Glad you came to visit and come back anytime.

  5. Hello, I love your craft space, those green baskets are a great colour. Thanks for showing all those books too, they look like a good read

  7. Oh Patty,
    What great ideas for storage, and I love your craft room, not messy at all...creative, amazing and fun is more like it! I love the books you mentioned, my favorite is Where Woman Create!!!!


  8. I want to try that plate with candle holder idea!! My husband is always playing with epoxy and makes too much .. now I need to be ready with plate and candle stick :)


  9. Hi Patty,
    I see you got the 'comment' thing figured out!
    Thanks for tagging me. I did do this one a month or so ago, but I'll pull it up again and see if anything needs changed--like my snack list!
    I love asparagus, it looks appetizing in your picture. I don't know what it is, probably my own problem, but I don't find many blogger's food pictures appetizing for some reason UNLESS they're chocolaty desserts. Crazy, huh?
    I haven't been able to blog as much as I like. My cleaning business is getting pretty busy for the summer. But I will do the best I can with staying on top of my blogging buddies' posts. I enjoy them so much.
    Have a great week.
    Brenda :)

  10. Oooh, my mind is spinning with ideas to organize my favorite room--my craft room of course! What a juicy blog post!! The books look fabulous and just full of good ideas. I think your space looks fabulous and really enjoyed seeing you in it!
    Thanks for the tag--I'll let you know when I post it.
    Smiles, Karen

  11. Your craft area is very nice. All my ribbons are just crammed in a big plastic bag. I love your pincushion and snack plates. I made a similar piece after seeing one on someones blog. I glued three plates and two cordial glasses together to make a tiered stand for my jewelry. The size of the plates is staggered.

  12. Nice to meet you Miss Patty!
    I had SO much fun visiting your blog!
    We have a lot in common! WOW! I added you to my favorites and will definitely be coming back!
    Where did you get the DREAM letters?
    Please write back!

  13. Hi Patty!

    I've given you an award for your blog! Please stop by my blog to pick it up!

    Hugs, Sherry

  14. Patty, I love the green in your craft space! Very cute!
    And have you ever tried dipping your pretzels in nutella? I recommend it!
    Have a happy day!

  15. Oh Patty, I love your craft room. This looks good compared to mine, I only have a path. I am so excited with this award, this is the very first one I've received ever. Please tell me what I should do next, do I copy and paste? Do I award it to 5 people also? I'm just so excited. Thank ya, Thank ya, Thank ya, RoseMarie

  16. I got so excited I forgot to tell you I do the same thing with candle holders, only I spray paint them to match the colors on my china plate and seal them with clear paint or modge podge. Great minds think alike, huh.

    Hugs, RoseMarie

  17. Hi Patty,
    I have been reading your blog for awhile this evening. WHO KNEW you could just refill those bath n body works soap thingys and they foam?! Mine is almost empty and I cant wait to try it!

ITS MY DUTY as keeper of thee shabbyoldepottingshed TO GET THEM TO THRIVE dontchyathink?
