Let me tell you about my best friend!

Let me tell you about my best friend!

Well, if finally a happened!  We got a kitten!  I hadn’t really been expecting to get  a new kitten but Matt and I had talked about it before.  I really wanted Julio to have a kitten before he was too old (and grumpy like his sister) to enjoy one. I’m constantly showing Matt cute kittens for sale on FB but it hadn’t really gone past that point.  Then a few weeks ago, Julio was standing on the floor while Hal…

Paint me a picture!

Paint me a picture!

Okay, so last week I posted the pic I bought at our neighborhood yard sale.  The plan, paint over the original canvas (pray it wasn’t priceless) and update the frame.  I really had no clue how long something like this might take.  Honestly, I kind of thought it might take me a while. Saturday morning while Matt was out golfing, I decided to start painting and see what happened.  I made a makeshift painting station in the garage.  One side…

Priceless?

Priceless?

Over the weekend we had a neighborhood yard sale.  This happens 2x a year and I’ve gone to all of them since we moved in.  I’ve managed to score some pretty cool items, for cheap too.  Last year I got a bag of pink Christmas ornaments for $5.00, much to Matt’s dismay.  (This led to the purchase of a white Christmas tree! 😉 )  At the same house, I found some really large 24×36 wooden frames.  I think they were $1.00…

It started with curtains

It started with curtains

Before we moved into the new house, we knew we would need new bedroom furniture.  Matt didn’t want to buy anything while we were still in the townhouse, since we had no clue what our new bedroom space would look like.  We ended up getting my old bedroom set from my mom and have had that for a few years now.  It was a decent size in the townhouse but we figured it would be too small once we moved….

One Round, Two Firsts

One Round, Two Firsts

Well hello there! It’s been a while. Life has been kind of busy lately. Matt and I always seem to have something to do lately, whether it’s playing golf, doing stuff around the house, or just being lazy. I feel like we are so much busier now days.   Three weeks ago I started weekly golf lessons. Our club is offering a weekly Ladies Clinic this Spring/Summer. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I was going to…

Christmas 2015

Christmas 2015

One would have thought I’d be jumping at the chance to decorate the new house for Christmas however, that wasn’t exactly the case this year.  I couldn’t find my motivation, but I think I couldn’t find motivation because I couldn’t find my vision!  I had no clue what to do with the new house this year.  I knew I wanted candles in the windows and wreaths on the windows. After Thanksgiving, I ran to Michael’s and picked up some garland…

The story of Cujo

The story of Cujo

**Blogging has kind of fallen by the wayside as of late.  To be honest, almost all the blogs I started out reading are no longer around.  Blogging seems like it’s becoming a thing of the past.  I will probably continue to update this randomly. I have a few more projects I’m about to start so I will continue to post those types of things. ** Back when I was maybe a Sophomore in High School a friend and I were…

Frosty

Frosty

I know I’ve talked about this a bunch so I won’t rehash all the details regarding our door debacle. Anyway, a few weeks ago, a car guy Matt knows, posted some window frosting he’d done for a local hotel. At that point, I had no clue how I was going to get our door frosted so I asked Matt how to contact him. He gave me his email and then I basically begged him to come do our door. He…

Flea market find!

Flea market find!

Matt and I knew that when we bought a new house there were various items that would need to be upgraded.  Our bedroom furniture is on that list.  We are currently in possession of my childhood furniture set.  However, this set did not come with bedside tables so a few years ago I bought some cheap side tables from Walmart.  We couldn’t have anything too large in our old room at the townhouse.  These fit nicely even though they were…

Patience paid off!

Patience paid off!

For the past year I’ve been drooling over this one specific dining room table that I kept seeing on Pinterest.  Of course, none of the links listed where the actual table was from.  I searched high and low and one day I finally found a blog that stated where the table was from, Restoration Hardware.  I immediately went to their website and found the table I’d been lusting over was the Salvaged Wood Trestle Dining Table.  And then I found…
