This week’s finds include how to decorate with milk glass, free boho printable with houseplants, how to set realistic fitness goals as a busy mom, how to turn a men’s button down shirt into a women’s blouse, and how to make a garden sign to hold your garden tools.
I share sneak peeks and more in my Facebook groups, so I invite you to join my DIY Home On Rockwood Lane group, or my Alexandra Lane Lifestyle group. Drop me a line below to let me know what kinds of things you’d like to see, and I’ll try to incorporate more of it!

Let’s Get to Those Great Finds!
With my new On Rockwood Lane Shop in booths 121 and 122 at America’s Antique Mall in Melbourne, Florida (onrockwoodlaneshop on IG and OnRockwoodLane on Etsy), I have come to start a small milk glass collection, and while researching different ways to use them, I came across this article from Country Living Magazine. Check out all these great Ways to Decorate with Milk Glass right here.
Do you have any houseplants? I have a few faux flowers that I put out depending on the season, but I don’t have any actual houseplants – real or faux. The Cottage Market has two great free printables of houseplant vignettes that are right on trend and with four different background options. Get both of the Houseplant Vignette printables right here.
I am not a mom, but I still enjoyed this article from Lovin’ Life with Littles. It’s such a thorough post, and filled with lots of great info! I especially like that she gives examples. The card game with the exercising to the suites sounds like a fun game. Check out this How to Set Fitness Goals as a Busy Mom article right here.
What a great shirt transformation from Sum of their Stories! I love the details of the buttons on the backside. The color and pattern really puts me in the Summer mood too. If you don’t need a new shirt, but still want to upcycle an old button down try making a throw pillow or tote bag. Check out how to sew a simple top from a men’s button down shirt.
What a nice sign! And a very fitting holder for garden tools. Mine are just in a drawer on the porch, but this is so much nicer. Check out the Rustic Garden Hand Tool Organizer from Interior Frugalista right here.
