A New Painting and Linky Party #220




Hi Everyone!
Welcome to 220th Masterpiece Monday!



I found this gigantic painting while out thrifting for only $9.99. I bought specifically for turning it into a DIY abstract painting. 


I used regular old craft paint and wall paint samples.

 After painting the entire canvas white, I painted a base of light blue surrounded by dark blue.
  Mix and brush on your paint,

 Next is truly the fun part! While your paint is still wet, spray it with water and dab with paper towels randomly and watch your abstract painting come to life!

Linky Party #219


Hi Everyone!

I really like artichokes and usually, I just boil them until they're soft and dip them in melted butter or mayo.

I wanted to come up with something different that didn't require me to dip an otherwise healthy veggie into so much fat!

Start with with four small artichokes, which was enough for three people
Slice off the stem. Remove and discard any weird little leaves at the base.

Clip off the sharp pointy stickers along the sides and slice an inch or two off of the top with knife.


Slice them in half and IMMEDIATELY squirt them with lemon juice. If you don't they will turn brown quickly.


Scoop out the feathery center. I used my handy dandy grapefruit spoon. I never use it for grapefruit, but it's one of those very versatile utensils I use for lot's of other things. 


Now for the extra virgin olive oil. Drizzle it all over your artichokes. Top with whatever seasonings you like. I used Italian seasoning mix and freshly minced garlic. I didn't use any salt, but you can add that too.


Wrap your baking dish tightly with foil. Place into a preheated oven at 425* and bake for one hour or until they are fork tender at the heart portion.

These are so good and best of all, they don't need dipping!

A New Table and Linky Party #218


Hi Everyone! 
Did you remember to reset your clocks?  I'm sure looking forward to having more daylight!  

This week, I thought I'd show you a little table scape on my my "new" dining table. 
 Question: 
What's more cost effective than buying furniture from Ikea?  
Answer:
Buying Ikea furniture from Craig's List!
I've been changing things up at my house and ever since I found my Mid Century Modern chairs at the thrift store, I've been looking for a suitable table to go along with them. My cottage style table was just not harmonizing together with them. 
 I've had my eye on the docksta table from Ikea for awhile. At $199.00, it really is a good price for a new table. But still, I like the thrill of the hunt and scoured Craig's List daily, hoping.  Finally, I found this one listed for $40.00. I talked the man down to $30.00 and now it's mine. Good things come to those who wait!
