  1. Hello Holly I love your blog and all of the thrifty ideas. I was wondering if you would be interested in a button swap. I'm new to this but my blog is rapidly growing. Have a great day.

  2. Hi Holly,
    Just discovered your blog and LOVE it! I too love thrifting and flea markets. I saw the flea market finds with the old PA license plates - do you live in PA? I grew up there and am in NJ now.

  3. Holly- I have never been into reading blogs or pinterest until tonight. I saw your laundry room with the hangers idea and absolutely loved it and decided to check out your blog and I LOVE it. If I can find the hangers and do it as well as you, I'm definitely going to steal your idea. Thanks so much for sharing!!

  7. Hi Holly!
    Greetings from Africa! Stumbled upon your blog while dreaming of decorating my home in the USA... (A bit homesick!). I'm inspired by your fantastic bold colors and already have a list of 'Holly' inspired projects!
    One question, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your dining table. Was it a thrift store find or did you buy it new? Can you send more pics of it? THANK YOU!

    I am completely loving you blog and have passed it on to a few people who are also loving it. I think I ran into it through a post on pinterest. I am a recent college graduate and am always looking for affordable ways to decorate my home. Looking forward to future posts!

  17. I found your blog through my daughter's blog, www.misstweedle.blogspot.com, and I love it. I am a lifelong thrifter and find it difficult to buy anything new when there's a whole world of fabulous used stuff out there. Keep up the good work!

  21. Holly, do you have any fabulous ideas for up-cycling Longaberger baskets. I have so many and they are not worth much in value, so I would like to make them more trendy. Any suggestions?

    1. hmmm....ideas that pop out...
      -spray paint them
      -collection on dining table for centerpiece...maybe filled with mason jars & fresh flowers
      -depending on size, possible receptables for organizing closets, drawers, pantry or crafts

      Hope this helps...just a little. :) Good luck!

  22. Holly,
    I have a black leather(?) and metal futon that is extremely uncomfortable and very boring. I can't bring myself to get rid of it, so I desperately want to find new life for it. We currently have it dressed up as a very uncomfortable bed (and covered in laundry waiting to be folded) but I thought I'd ask around for some ideas. Here's a link with a picture of it: http://www.amazon.com/Dorel-Home-Products-Delaney-Sleeper/dp/B004LQ1QN4/?qid=1316562857&ref=sr_1_13&ie=UTF8&sr=8-13 What would you do?

    1. Have you tried dressing it up with some fun pillows? Urban Outfitters always have some fun ones...or if you wanna splurge, go for Anthropologie- you won't ever go wrong there. Pillows really work wonders!!

  26. Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that I love you unique ideas. The way you decorate has a way of showing your personal tastes. I love unique and showing what you like and not having to have the show piece - look at home. Beautiful.....

  27. Hi Holly,

    I just love your laundry room. You are very creative in your ideas. I am interested in making some changes to my laundry room and need to know if you purchased the short white rod to the right of your picture. I would love that to hang my hangers on. Please let me know the information about that white rod. I would thoroughly appreciate it. Thanks, Mimi.

  33. Hi Holly
    This is a random question but I am looking for a creative way to document my 2 year old daughters growth on the wall each year. I don't want to just buy one of those pre made ones you can use. I wanted something more creative. Do you use anything or have any ideas? THanks Christy Delany-Richardson

  34. Hi Holly,
    I'm the Executive Assistant for Great Artist Mom. The Great Artist Program is an educational system for elementary kids that gives them the skills to create their own works of art patterned after some of the old masters. We love your posts. We especially are drawn to the post about bubble art with kids. In the near future we're planning to post about giant bubbles and art projects including bubbles. Naturally, we'd love to highlight you and your blog as the source for this art project. In return we'd love it if you could highlight one of our art ideas on your blog. Let me know what you think.
