Bir & Fud, Rome Italy

Ha, ha, love the name of this place and totally didn’t get it at first.  Duh, Beer and Food.  We took a chance on this place after reading a review on Trip Advisor.  I totally love Trip Advisor, this is my go to travel website. 

The review said this was a great place to have a craft beer.  We love craft beer and why not try one in another country! 

We took a cab from our hotel around 8 p.m.  When we got there, there was a one hour wait to eat….OK, this is a good sign! 

We sat outside while we waited and in the meantime, two of our friends joined us.  Time passed quickly and before long, we were inside and ready to eat!

We thought we would be getting typical bar food, but the menu was pretty extensive for a bar.  When in Italy, you have to have the pizza, so we ordered two different pizzas as well as bruschetta. 

Our pizza had cheese, eggplant, and mushrooms and it was to die for!  I only wish I would have taken a picture.

Make sure to check this place out if you’re ever in Rome…..it’s definitely a place that the locals frequent.

Our travel tip:  Our cabbie spoke broken English and I think he understood where we wanted to go, but just in case, we had a print-out from Trip Advisor with the address.  Once we showed him the address, he knew exactly where we wanted to go.

Upcycled Domino Tile Pendant Necklace

My metals/jewelry making class that I am taking has inspired to create some really cute upcycled/recycled tile art necklaces .  I was at the thrift shop last month and I picked up this tin full of Dora the Explorer domino type pieces.  They were in great shape and made of a nice heavy filled plastic/resin with white on one side and Dora characters on the other side.  I sat them aside until this past weekend when I thought – I need to do something with those cute little pieces.  By nature, I’m a big recycler.  I love taking something old and making it new.  I’ve seen these necklaces all over Etsy so I thought I would give it a try.  So, while hubby was out and about, I plopped down at the kitchen table and began creating. I had already downloaded a few art sheets specifically designed for domino size pieces from Etsy (these sheets are really inexpensive). You don’t have to use these, I just chose to.  Leading up to this project, I had already bought jewelry bales, jump rings, and c

Spring Mantel Nook; Trash to Treasure

I have been jealous of all the cute spring mantels popping up lately.  So last night, I went to the thrift shop and started looking for treasures to turn my mantel into something special. You see, I have more than a mantel, I have a nook …..a deep alcove to house a television.  The problem – I didn’t like the TV being up that high…so, I have a nook. What’s in my nook?  Take a look Tall glass jar – thrift shop.  Eggs that are inside are treasured eggs that the girls made when they were little. Chalkboard plate – just made it today!  I bought the white plate at Target on clearance and used chalk board spray paint. Little picture above the plate – thrift shop! Little dragon fly candle holder – thrift shop. Topiary – something I already owned. White candle stick – it used to be gold and I spray painted it antique white.  It was another thrift shop find. Little clay chick tea light candle holder –you guessed it, thrift shop. All the bottles are thrift sh

Chalk Painted Dresser–Aged Barn Wood

I have been collecting furniture in the garage and it was requested that I start doing something with them or else!  Since I wasn't sure what “or else” meant exactly, I started my first project this weekend :) I have been following many blogs that re-do furniture and everyone has their own way of doing things, their own favorite brands, products, and tools.  I tried to take a little something from each blog to come up with something that works for me.  I thought I would share with you the steps I took to get a beat up Bassett dresser from drab to fab! So here’s the down and dirty: Painted using Behr flat in one of those new sample size containers.  I used two coats of homemade chalk paint (added 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout diluted in hot water to 1 cup of paint). I noticed the paint seemed to get thicker as I applied each coat so I added little bits of water here and there to thin out the paint a little. This seemed to do the trick. The chalk paint dries super fast
