My favorite spaces...

Of Course when we were looking to buy a new house we had to have a craft/scrap room so when my husband saw this room with shelving he knew I would want it. It is my space to get away and create
often times the whole family ends up in here with me.

The Kitchen is my throne. I love to cook and bake all the time. I try a new recipe every week on my family. It is a gathering place for us all. The Kitchen is a place where tears and laughter are shed. A humble place. I am very fortunate to have my family at the dinner table everynight. Whether we are at a ball game or work. The family is always home for Dinner.

Last but not least is my Small little living room. I love to sit in their and read and watch my DVR'd shows/movies. all though we have a huge Bonus Room and I mean huge. The family often gathers inthe smaller room. I guess
we all like the closeness of one another's company.
Define Space:
interval of time: a period or interval of time
"In the space of two hours the situation was resolved."

enough room: room to fit or accommodate something or somebody
"There isn't space for the table."

area set apart: an area set apart or available for use
"floor space"
So, share with me what your favorite space in your house is. How often do you get to visit that space.

Necktie Wreath...

So, my husband has had to wear a tie everyday at work for 25 years until this past month. I decided to make a wreath using his neckties and tie it off with the Famous Food Lion tie. It was super easy.

You will need 15-16 ties give or take depending on the size wire wreath you buy.
I cut them to about 13 inches from the bottom then started wrapping them and overlapping
just a tad. I used hot glue to adhere the tie together then use the Food Lion tie to make a bow. It took no time at all. I did however dislike cutting some really expensive ties. I loved the end result.
You can also check out Thriftyfun to see what she came up with. Keep reading each day as I will have other tutorials to show along with some yummy goodness and a possible giveaway. I would love if you would become a follower of my blog that way you can stay updated.
