~tutorial tuesday~

Hello everyone!!

How is your week so far?
I'm doing great!

there are soooo many amazing ideas
and tutorials out there....it was hard to narrow 
it down!!

but I thought this little 
pitcher from 
was just the cutest thing e.v.e.r.!!

Michelle did a post that included this
cute little thing a few months ago &
it's been filed in my Pinterest cabinet
ever since!!

and she was so kind to share with me
how she did it!

but before we get to that....
let's look at some other
super amazing stuff Michelle creates!

aren't these book page bundles so darling???
what is it about vintage and especially french
book pages tied with string with a cute little
tag ....  that makes us swoon???

and if you really want to make us crazy....
tear off the book covers & tie up with
a cute ribbon & string.....

now we are out of our minds in love!! 
oh yeah~ little french stamps here & there...
oh my! ;)

and we like our vintage bottles.....
and if you take a vintage bottle, 
fill it with buttons...
a  n  d
add some vintage paper 
yep ~ you guessed it~
over   the   moon!

everything Michelle does is just
mind boggling to me!

I seriously want to buy e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.
in her shop!


ok...so the darling little pitcher.....
HOW do we do that???

1) buy cute little pitcher at a thrift store...
any color will do!
2) spray paint it white
3) hand stamp with "stayz on" ink
4) seal with spray on poly sealer

how easy is that????

I found some letter stamps at Michael's for under
$10 & can't wait to try it!!

Michelle's blog can be found here
and her little Etsy store
can be found here
{she's actually on vacation right now...but be sure to go
back ~ you'll be blown away!!}

Have a wonderful evening!!!

I'm obsessed with her store goodies too! My fav's are her old door knob photo holder...I just can't get enough of those! Headed over to her store to take peek. (I've been a crazy gardener this summer & look forward to getting some time to revisit a lot of my favorite bloggers again when fall comes). So glad I popped over to see what your up to and that you shared this fantastic idea! Hope you are having a great week & maybe even join the garden party this week with what you've been up to these past couple months at your place????? xoxo , tracie
