If you want to check out where I am hanging today pop over to Get Outta My Head Please and see my guest project. It's pretty darn cool... On to today's project! We used to have our toothbrushes in a pretty little cup on the counter. Gross. Especially because we have 1 bathroom that serves as guest bathroom and the main bathroom. We just didn't want to think about the germs that floated . . .

I have a love for anything industrial. Metal, iron, and even nasty wood I love if it was a working piece. I love the history these items carry. Can you imagine what they've seen and heard? I just think it's incredible. I wanna be a fly on a locker, or a gas stations sign...nevermind the wall. But, alas, industrial can be expensive. Here is a way to create the look of the giant . . .
This was simple and inexpensive. But quick, it was not. But, it was something special and worth the time (in my opinion). My sister in law is from the Philippines. Her and my brother have 2 small boys. I wanted to get something for the boys that honored that part of their heritage. And honor her. I decided on making traditional ABC blocks...using the . . .
My sister is very aware of the environment and tries to be eco-friendly whenever possible. I do, too. But she's a little farther on that path than me. One of the things she does to conserve resources is take reusable bags to the grocery store. It's a great idea (if I could remember), but hers have gotten dirty and worn. So I decided to surprise her with an . . .
With the upcoming holiday season there is a serious amount of entertaining happening in most homes. My home is doubled in numbers if not tripled or more on any given day these next few months. Of course being the oldest of 10 brings an greater number of guests than most. But still, being a great host is something everyone can keep striving for! My home is a revolving door of guests. . . .
Today I wanted to show you a quick furniture facelift I did recently. It was done just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas guests to ooh and aah. Cause when you see herâ€¦you canâ€™t help it! Isnâ€™t she a beauty? She cost me $35.00. No joke. I actually wanted to offer more because I felt so bad. But, I sucked it up and walked out with her for cheap, cheap, cheap. I have been seeing . . .
This gorgeous runner is unfortunately on my table for these pics. She is waiting for her new home on a more well-deserved table of my dear friends. She will be a Christmas Gift. This is so simple that I feel it would be insulting to show you how to do it. Simply grab some vintage hankies (I paid $1 for each of mine, hopefully you don't have to pay more.) and sew them together. If you don't have a . . .
This project is an oldie from the early days of NellieBellie. In those early days I was still using a point and shoot camera and my photography skills were lacking. However, this craft is a good one and still valuable regardless of the photography. Get a group of little girls together and help them make their own barrettes. This is a great activity to do on a Saturday . . .
