Turkey Vegetable Meatballs and Linky Party #224




At my house, we call ourselves chicka-tarians because we eat mostly poultry. If we're not having chicken, we're most likely having ground turkey. Any recipe I have that normally calls for ground beef, I substitute with ground turkey. Sometimes, when you do that though, a recipe can dry out or lack in flavor. Two of those recipes for me are burgers and meatballs. I use this recipe I'm sharing today for both. The secret ingredient is zucchini, which adds the extra moisture. For the burgers, just form into patties and add a little extra virgin olive oil to a non-stick pan and cook until well done.

Help, I'm Addicted to Making Abstract Paintings and Linky Party #223



I know, another painting? I needed something for my office/craft room wall.  I think this'll be it for the big paintings.  This one was so much fun to do. I found some inexpensive canvas art at the thrift store and painted them white.   I laid an old plastic shower curtain on my driveway and randomly poured paint in my favorite colors. I placed the paintings faced down on top of the paint and moved them back and forth. The shower curtain unexpectedly wrinkled, causing a really cool effect! I let them dry flat outside on the hood of my car, which was covered with a clean tarp. 
                                 
                                             











This cabinet is a future project. It was a free curb find and has been living in my garage to hold storage.  I moved it into the office/craft room with the intent to use it as storage there. When I decided to top it with my parents old marble coffee table top, it turned into a nice large desk. There is enough of a ledge to sit comfortably close.
The middle knob is missing, which is OK because it's not a real door anyway. That's probably why it got yanked off.  I'm planning on filling the holes and painting the piece black.

My other score for this room is this chair from IKEA. Except I didn't buy it from IKEA, someone else did for $149.00 and then donated it to Saver's Thrift store. I tried not to fall down when I saw it for $24.99! It's so comfy, I love it.

New Wicker Dinning Chairs and Linky Party #222 and Happy Easter!





I know, I'm pretty fickle with my dining chairs lately. The truth is, I've always wanted some beachy looking wicker dining chairs.  They've always been too pricey for me. I really liked my mid century modern chairs I found thrifting and decided to be happy with them until I found my wicker chairs. I just never dreamed I'd find them this soon, if ever. 

 
I found them at Saver's Thrift Store. They were $24.99 each. I had a 30% off coupon which made them $17.50 each! I re-donated the other chairs, which were also from Saver's.
