Just for FUN Friday

Oh hi.

Fancy meeting you here.

A lot of bloggers use Friday’s post to link to other things they’ve found around the Internet. Interesting, fun things. I never do that. I’m not sure why, but one of the reasons is I actually don’t spend a lot of time browsing other blogs and Pinterest and such so I just don’t discover fun and interesting things.  The most interesting thing I’ve found recently was a strawberry shaped like Piglet.

It’s not because I don’t want to browse around, it’s because I run out of time. I’m always running out of time. It’s kind of my thing.

But in fact, I love those Friday posts on other people’s blogs. Nicole from Making it Lovely for instance does it and so does Ashley English from Small Measure.

So when I came across this DIY from Lindsay’s blog Little House Blog I knew I had to show it to you.  I, of course, will be doing this but I didn’t want to copy it and then show you.  I wanted you to see the original version in all it’s glory with Lindsay getting all the credit she deserves.

Behold the greatest thing since chilled milk.




It’s an Ikea hack. And I love it. So if you’re looking for a quick DIY this weekend, this custom logo Vintage Milk Bottle could be what you’ve been looking for. You know. This or a pizza oven.

Have a good weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.

    Cute. I have always had a thing for that classic milk bottle shape.

  2. Ohhhhhh my !!!! My two FAVE Canadian bloggers are on the same page!?? You and Lindsay. How’d that happen?

    Lindsay is a GREAT SOUL and salt of the earth too. Now you, Karen. Hmmmm. Lettme think about that one. Haha.

    I just did a triple flip of excitement across my living room floor.

    OMG…I’ve been collecting vintage milk bottles for years and I actually use them for milk and now I can put a logo on them. I’ve got a project for the weekend!!

    my milk comes in cute glass bottles

    it’s fun seeing what dairy they originated from

    the bottles get returned each week for filling so unless I happen across new *old* milk bottles, this won’t be a craft for me

    but it is really cute

    Geez Karen…almost choked on my morning coffee when I decided to link to the two blogs. What do I see on the screen before me on “Making it Lovely” was an article about What to wear when pregnant and traveling! I thought there was more you were trying to share with us in an indirect way.

    BTW…coffee doesn’t feel good coming out of a nostril. Just sayin. Warn us next time!

  6. We could make pizza (not the oven!) and drink milk with it.
    Maybe even begin the pizza oven while the pizza is cooking.
    Have a nice weekend Karen!

    Hey Karen, I bought the cobb oven book that you recommended. Haven’t had a chance to read it yet but looked at the pictures – lol… told my husband we WILL be making one next year. He just kind of looked at me like he always does when I come up with these projects. Have a great weekend!

    LOVE IT! Have a great weekend and make some pizza!

    Dear Karen, The name of your blog is “The Art of Doing Stuff”. It should be called “The Art of Getting Stuff Done”. You are productive because you are not wasting time trolling other websites. You are the only blog I want to read anyway…..even if I never make a pizza oven.

    I can’t find the you-tube that Betty filmed – think it was you painting the bricks but all I remember is her saying something about editing. Needed that particular laugh this morning. I also noticed that it took longer to clean your new tile floor than to lay it. At least in the edited version. Amazing! I have a small collection of milk bottles as family was previously farm owners and milk men (until the invention of milk jug plastic and quick stop stores). And ordered some from your link to the crazy cat lady bottles. But this looks like fun to make.

    LOVE. Going there right now. Bye.

  12. Danica says:

    Love that you shared Lindsey’s DIY Vintage Milk Bottles….she’s one of the very first bloggers I started following and rarely miss a post! Also, her tweets are might funny!

    They carry a type of yogurt drink in Japan that comes in mini milk jugs. The label is just shrink wrap plastic which comes off to reveal just glass. I think I’m going to make a few mini labels! Thanks!
