It is with such sadness that I have to say good bye to the newbie party!!  *sniffle* I guess I have graduated!!  No longer the new blog on the block.  I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to our hostess DEBBIE.  She is so totally awesome, and has helped so many of us figure out this whole blog thing.  You are the best Debbie!!

And NO, I don't think I will go away.  I've heard a bunch of people say that they still do the party, just don't link up!  SWEET!!!  SO, I think I've graduated to a newbie stalker!!  Awesome!!!

SO, I wanted to show you all 2 things.  The first is this poor old Rooster cabinet I have.
Poor cabinet!!  It had served me well in my other house.  It was in the kitchen/dining area, just a sweet cute cabinet.
Now, don't get me wrong!  I still have roosters in my kitchen, just not the same amount of room.  So, this cabinet has been in the garage since we got here.  Then, I had a great idea!!!  What if, I decoupage over the roosters and the fronts of the drawers and make it a bath cabinet for the hallway!!!  
I downloaded French writing and images from The Graphics Fairy and started my plan today!!  I am sorry to say, I don't have the "after" pictures yet, but they will be here next Monday if you want to see it's new look!!

And, speaking of The Graphics Fairy, I made this canning jar using another image from her!!  I painted the inside of the jar, which was totally hard!!  And added the graphic, and some other goodies. 
Maybe I'll put it on my new cabinet!!
I will be linking it to her Brag Monday Party.

Keep having fun and meeting new friends Newbies!!  I will miss you all!!  And Thank You all for visiting me!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

  2. Daniella,
    That's a great idea for the cabinet. If any one can pull it off, you can. I would love to see the finishing product. I really like hallway dressers and cabinets. They add a special touch.

  12. My bad above- said I couldn't see your follower thingy-but that I thought I was one of your early follwers-Then I found it~ duh...

  13. Oh wow, I can't wait to see how it turns out. And I love your jar!! You've been so busy! (I adore that chandelier on there!)


  14. I tried to email you this comment, but you seem to be a no-reply blogger. Since moving to Roanoke, VA five years ago, I've become addicted to the Goodwill stores. They are literally everywhere. The one where I usu go is just 10 minutes up the street - that I have to pass to go anywhere. hehehe
    I shop there so much that I rarely go to the mall, and when I do, I'm appalled at their prices.
    Thanks for visiting.

  15. OOOH! Love the jar! How did you apply the graphic?

  16. The rooster cabinet is gorgeous! Have fun blogging! ♥

  17. Wow... I had never thought about painting the inside of a jar. Great idea! It turned out beautiful. I would love for you to link your post up at my Savvy HomeMade Monday blog party at

  20. Thanks so much for linking up at Home Savvy, Daniella! Speaking of stalking, I stalked you on your page and checked out tons of your posts. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

  21. Can't wait to see the cabinet redo. I have a project that I need to do. Just can't make up my mind.

  22. Congrats!! You must stay around though and check in, ok? :-) The cabinet is darling can't wait to see what you do with it. The jar looks great. You are very creative! What type of paper do you print the designs on?


  23. You are no longer a newbie! Wow! Doesn't time fly! I love that jar and can't wait to see what you do with the cabinet! I know you will make it gorgeous! X

  24. Hi Daniella, I expect by now you have completed your project with the rooster cabinet. I'm a little late in commenting because I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
