Hey y'all!  yup...It's that time again.  This week....I get to pick the features. 
Hi! My name is Tammy....and I'm an addict!
I blog over at Deja Vue Designs... I'm a stay at home wife and addict!!
I'm addicted to: God, Husband, Children, Grand children, Art, Gardening, Up-cycling and Blogging! God of course is FIRST and FOREMOST in my life.  I'm not perfect....but he's not through with me yet! I have Loved art and Gardening since I can remember!  When I was about five, my mother gave me my own little spot in the garden....and that flame was forever lit! My husband and I raised four children....three boys, and the youngest...The PRINCESS! They were a his mine and ours situation.  Together they have given us five BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT, WONDERFUL Grandchildren. I LOVE LOVE LOVE taking old, used up items, that no one else wants and breathing new life into them.  Usually giving them a new look....and a new purpose....hence the statement and name of my blog!  I hope to see all of Y'all over at my place! I've been Loving all these amazing projects every week.  It's been so difficult to decide which would be my favorite.  That said...I had a really hard time.  I think I could have had ten on here.  I narrowed it down to five.... The first one...is this AMAZING looking recipe from Savory Experiments.  This White Chocolate Cranberry and Pistachio Bark.  You had me at chocolate...and pistachio! :D Pistachio+Cranberry+Bark+2 I really don't know if anyone else in the family would get any of this.  This is definitely a MUST TRY recipe!   My second choice...is from one of our very own.  Karin from Art is Beauty...did an AMAZABALLS job on this table.   I just think it turned out STUNNING...don't you?  There is just something about a dark brown...and blue of any kind, that just makes my heart sing, like the angels from heaven...and those of y'all follow me...probably know...I can't carry a tune in a bucket! This little darling....is a dumpster dive special...MY CUP OF TEA!!! WOOT...go see how it came to be! IMG_2573   Dear Creatives made this most adorable utensil Holder.  When you combine burlap and lace....well...you just say perfection to me!  Theresa...made this simple and easy tutorial look so awesome! Burlap-Utensil-Holder_-Diy-_Fork_Knife_Spoon_-Theresa-Huse-2013   No feature, this time of the year, would be complete with out having a Christmas Mantel.  I love the Winter season, for all the festive Christmas decor.  This darling mantel is no exception.  Be sure to visit Fort Ledbetter...and see this beautiful Mantel. SONY DSC I love these mantels that you can see all the way through...don't you?   Laura from Pet Scribbles...has never failed to amaze me with her creativity. I'm sort of partial to this project...A.  Because it's Laura's, and   B. because  she used vintage seed packages.  At any rate, she just dolled them up Perfectly! Vintage+Seed+Packet+Paper+MacheĢ+Boxes+DIY-1 There were so many more that I could have chosen...but we have to stop somewhere.  Well, that's the features...so now...let's get this party started!
