Weekend Projects

The weekend has come and gone. I got a few things done and of course, did some shopping! HA. unfortunately no thirfting though.
I bought this wonderful crate at Jon-Ann's for $9. It would be great for holding blankets and such... and would it not be fabulous if I could make it look like...

This! Hm... yes, my mind is racing!

I did a little more distressing on my "Egg" sign.
I really love it, just my style!

I bought this star at Target in the dollar section (it was $2.50) HA!

Here he is all painted and distressed. Apparently I have a "star" thing along with a lantern and boxwood thing... ha

I have had this piece for a while...

He was a little too green, so I decided to add some.. can you guess what color?

Yes! White wash of course! Much better... now where to put it?

And I did a little work on my punkin'. You did not honestly think I was gonna leave him like that? HA!

Is he not the cutest?

Well its officially here... Happy Fall Y'all!

White Punkin

I decided I wanted to jump on the white pumpkin band-wagon, so I spray painted an old cheap one. He still needs a little work and I am going to paint the stem brown.

I put some of my fall decorations out and went shopping for some new things today. I really want to find a cute fall owl and a cute fall plate... could not find ANYTHING! And I can't wait to buy some REAL juicy fat pumpkins for the front porch!

I did manage to find a few things.....

Wrought Iron umbrella holder (very heavy) for FREE!

I spotted this cute little sign for $3. Needless so say, he came home with me.

This is what he looks like now. I think I am going to hang him over the door in my kitchen

And I got another blue mason jar for $1.

I Heat Blue Glass

I think that I am going to have to open up my own booth one day so I can get rid of all the "stuff" I come with, I just cant help myself.
I love the color and the crackle on these telephone insulators. $2 each.

Blue mason jar with a lid $8

And I got some Jute for $1.

I am still working on my bookshelves, my guest room and bathroom so hopefully I can use these finds in one of those places. Pictures to come soon, I hope!

When the World Stopped Turning: A 9/11 tribute

I was in High school and when we were told what had happened on 9-11-01, I will never forget the feeling in my stomach and the pictures we saw on the TV.
I just love this picture, what an incredible reminder!

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 
2 Chronicles 7:14

 To the families we lost loved ones, those who survived and all the heroes and troops. we remember. GOD BLESS THE USA!

Change is a Good Thing

Here is my new and improved kitchen corner....
This picture is not so great but it looks good in person, I really like it! All the white with a little punch of color and life. This corner has not changed since we moved a year ago. Ahh... Sometimes change can be so refreshing.

And here is my new wreath fall wreath attempt #1....

Isn't it adorable? And, guess what it is made of? Coffee filters, talk about cheap! I like it but I think I am gonna try to make the fabric rosettes and see how they look. I think they are so cute and look pretty easy to make out of fabric scraps!

Now, I am just trying to decide when I want to put out my fall decorations... I am already using my fall candles... I don't think it will be long, I cant wait to get a pumpkin(or a few) for my front porch!
