Super Simple Shabby Pots!

Hello Blog world!!

Some of you might know that I've recently moved and sadly I'm not all done unpacking! I think it's because I know we're not gonna be here forever....but anyhow, I want to make this place as homey and as comfortable as I can!

I'm in love with plants and flowers and I just purchased an"African Violet" and I wanted to display it on my coffee table in a terracotta pot along with a little succulent I bought a few days prior! So I bought a couple of terracotta pots with saucers and wanted to give them a shabby look!!

Here's my video, enjoy:

Here are some more detailed close-up pics!

There weren't many Terracotta pots at my Walmart, I assume it's because it's mid Summer and the "gardening" season is about over. I assume there won't be many at the Home Improvement stores either, but if you find some, give this a try, it's so easy and so pretty!!

For Prima embellishments like these numeral plaques called "Door Signs" you can find a huge variety at my shop, thejuleboxshop.com! Here's the listing to find these!

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Summer!!

It's time for De-Stashing!!

Hey everyone!

Hope your week is going smoothly!

I know I mentioned a couple months ago I was going to have a destash here at the shop. Well, some of you know that I've moved.....not easy and it is a busy situation....but I also started to carry some of my products at my favorite antique store, Elm Street Antiques, come visit them on FB!! So that's been keeping me busy too! I LOVE it!! It's never work when I'm there:)

Anyhow, I finally have over a dozen bundles of things to destash and it's all listed at my shop here!

Please have a visit and see if you can pick up some goodies! I've got a few more things I'm gathering and getting pics of to get them listed so stay tuned for that. Also, I'll have some WRMK products soon...... I couldn't get those listed yet because...well again, I've gotten so busy with this move! LOL

Well, have a great day and please visit my destash listing at "The Jule Box Shop"!!!

My husband served 2 terms (8 years) in the US Navy and let me tell you, as a 22 yr old who wasn't born here but wanted to be part a great country and support his little family, is something to be commended! So, thank you honey for all your hard work and dedication to our country!

In memory of them I wanted to have a special sale over at TheJuleBoxShop.com Being that Memorial Day is on the 26th, I thought it to be a little appropriate to host this special....

My projects, Happy Easter and Happy Birthday Big Bro!!

Hello and how are you??

I've missed you guys....seriously, this is totally for the birds! I don't even really know what that means! LOL ;)  but seriously...I miss you people....ma' peeps!! I miss crafting and posting stuffs and reading your comments and blogs and stuffs.....and watching your videos.....I have tried to watch a few here and there:)

Guess what? I have a cool thing happening soon that I will (with an announcer's voice as if announcing a super hero swooshing through) "SOON REVEAL"! hahaha....no but really....I was offered a cool opportunity and I'm in the middle of the set-up process now! I CANNOT wait to announce it and share! But until then..."zipp-os on the lip-os"!

So, what have I been doing? Still unpacking...yes, really....look, this isn't the way I hoped it would go. Things were supposed to have a home already and they don't yet. My thought was to set up shop as soon as we moved in but instead my sweet hubby talked me into refurnishing some of my furniture (it has nothing to do with the fact that I've been saying, "Honey, I think I want to paint that .....!" like a billion times over the last year or so!!)....not just 1 but a few, so, I did.  I started a series of videos on them, I'll share them as soon as I can. I have a few things to do first.....like revamp some of my blog shop listings and finish up on some Mickey Mouse invitations I'm making for my cutie patootie great nephew Mikey! His my brother's daughter (my niece) little boy. It's his 1st B-day on May 6th!!! Look at this face! Ah!!! He cracks me up!!!!:)

It's a little blurry but this picture was taken about a month ago. Lisa (my sister, his "grannie"...lol ) took it and I'm in love with this picture! LOL I LOVE you Mikey! MUAH!!!

But the furniture....here's one I've redone already! This is a small book shelf that I got at an antique show in the Fall of 2013. I painted it a distressed pink and I added some decorative moulding to the edges of the shelves and added a really cute wood applique I found at Hobby Lobby in the center of the top part of the backing! I'll share soon!!

So, what happened? I started redoing all this furniture and it's taking longer that I thought it would so I'm a little behind in the unpacking process. You guys should see my house....well, no actually you shouldn't....it's still full of boxes and looks a mess right now! At least my bed is assembled and I can sleep in that with all my comfy pillows and blankets! LOL...which is a good thing because I think I would go insane!!

I wanted a homey kinda settled in look somewhere, somehow....so, I created a cute display of glass and metal vintage boxes on the top of my hutch! Wanna see it? I thought of red and yellow. Tell me what you think!!

The HUGE glass container on the left is a drink dispenser with a lid and spout! I had it in a box forever!! It just hit me to get it out and display it! I bought a white towel with a red stripe along the edges from IKEA in February and laid that down under the cans and a cute wire teapot I got at a garage sale I put wine corks in!! The cans are from Antique shops and yard sales that I collected over the last 3-4 years. The "Mariposa" jar is ceramic and the colors started the whole display idea! The glass bottles and vases gave a nice look for one side then the cans on the other. In between it all are some plastic flowers and greenery I had in a floral storage box in the garage and in my scraproom. I love it and it feels more like home to me now!

Anyways, this is a little of what I've been doing. I'll be busy for a while yet but I will be optimistic about it all, it's a new chapter and full of some good drama! :) It's all good though because it's all a huge blessing!

Well, back to work on the blog shop and invites. That's all for today but I wanted to wish you a very Happy Easter with your family and I want to send out a shout out to my big brother Danny who is celebrating his B-Day this weekend too!! "HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANNY!!!!" This was taken last year when my hubby and I took him out to eat a great lobster dinner! He looks happy right!? :)  

See you guys soon!

 Love ya'll!!
