I picked up this tin tile at a local antique place for just a couple bucks and have been placing it all over the house
it adds a light creamy touch wherever I place it.
For now – I have it covering the big black hole of the fireplace box…it amazingly lightens up that end of the room so well. 
Love it!

As winter is STILL in full force here
we continue with some winter crafts.
We’ve made lots of snowflakes but cottaged them up a bit by starting out with natural (rather than stark white) coffee filters:

Fold the filter in half
home 006
fold in half again
home 007
then take that in fold it in thirds (almost like baby bunting?)
home 008
see how the section on the left goes over the right?

and then cut to your liking
just play!
