Whoa what? Tan is blogging today?
Yes I’ve been away a bit lately, caught in a whirlwind of a new job (which so far I love), thanksgiving, and getting sick. I’ll try to make it here a bit more regularly. If not here, then setting up the Squirrelly Minds Shop, cause I’m determined to not let this nasty cold stand in the way of that (although I’ll admit it has so far).
But today I had to share this cute DIY I did for Used Everywhere. I love getting creative with what’s in the recycling box, and this time I opted for a fun DIY to get in the spooky spirit – tin can candle holders painted for Halloween! I currently have mine sitting on my mantel decorated up for the occasion (see pics in the post for a sneak peek of our living room re-decor plans). It’s a cute and simple way to add some halloween decor on a mega cheap budget. So head on over for the full DIY tutorial!
See you there!

As you might have seen on Wednesday
, Thanksgiving is coming up for those of us in the north. I might not be hosting thanksgiving this year, but I’ll certainly keep these in mind for our Yanksgiving festivities
. Especially those walnut place card holders considering I have a big black garbage bag full of the little guys. I must say, this table setting
is making me want to go all glam and gold this year, and the above walnut place cards and the gold table runner fits perfectly.

There’s something about the roughness of concrete mixed with the glam of metallics that I just can’t get enough of, and these DIY’s have me absolutely swooning. I haven’t worked with concrete yet (aside from laying down flooring in the basement) but I’m anxious to try some of these DIY’s out. I’m thinking they’ll make great Christmas presents don’t you? No time like the present to get started!
