Funky Find Friday: Bright and Modern

I'm normally a vintage, shabby chic kinda girl. But recently I've seen the beauty in bright post modern pieces. Today's Funky Find Friday features some bright pieces that could be seen in any modern room.

First up, pillows like this one from Mi Casa Bella on Etsy.

The store has this pattern in several colors and sizes. Check out the store for lots of modern designer pillows.

Check out this great bright, modern and inexpensive artwork that Little Things Brings Smiles created for her husband:

Love that idea!

Check out this bright modern living room makeover featured on

Bright and Modern is growing on me more and more all the time!

For another bright modern space, check out this loft on Apartment Therapy.

Well I don't think I could personally do my entire house in bright modern style, I am now seriously considering turning my office/extra bedroom into this look.

Check back tomorrow for my bright modern project.

Happy Crafting!

Cricut Platters

I finally got a Cricut for Christmas this last year. I haven't used as much as I've wanted to because of everything going on. But I did get a few projects done that I wanted to share with you. The two things I have in mind today are both platters. I got a large stack of old ceramic and/or ironstone platters for $1.00 at an auction awhile back. I used the Cricut to cut some vinyl words and pictures to put on them.

The first one I made as a gift for my sister in law. I used the Sure Cuts a Lot software and played around with different clip art I found online until I got it to look like I wanted. Here's the end result:

I thought it turned out great. My SIL is a big wino (like me) so she really liked it. The next platter I made I used a Cricut cartridge to make this:

I've got this in my living room right now. I was thinking of putting it in my store. But I love it so much, I might have to keep it. If anyone is interested in purchasing one, let me know. I could probably part with this one or else make a similar one with the other platters I have. ;)

I have some rehab projects in the works that I'm hoping to get finished early next week, so watch for those. Tomorrow I plan on showing you the stuff I got garage saleing last weekend.

Happy Crafting!
