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…

A Tale of Two Curtains

A Tale of Two Curtains

A week or so ago I decided I wanted curtains for the master bedroom.  I’ve known for a while I wanted curtains in our room but I’ve just been kind of at a loss as to what color I should do.  Our walls are painted a soft grey and our bedding is a teal-y green and cream. As you can see the green isn’t a common color and even though the white looks white, it has more cream undertones. Not…

Hello my pretty!

Hello my pretty!

The other day I was at Carolina pottery when I stumbled across this adorable vase. It was pink, had flowers, and well, it was cheap! I was surprised when I saw the price tag read $7.99. Score! For that price I knew I couldn’t not get it. As I looked closer I noticed one of the side flowers was a little chipped. I figured that would get me at least 10% off. Watch out with my .79 savings. 🙂 For…

I am currently dreaming….

I am currently dreaming….

of a new bed.  Hehe!  For a while now I’ve wanted new bedroom furniture but after paying for carpet I don’t think buying a full set is in the cards.  However, I think I’ve convinced Matt to buy a new bed.  He really wants a King size bed and I really want a Tempurpedic mattress (not a real one because those things are $$$$ but a nice fake one from Ikea would do.) Currently I have my eye on a…

It’s like a new room

It’s like a new room

Only it’s not.  Over the weekend Matt and I FINALLY painted our bedroom!  WOOO HOOO!  This was the last “room” that needed to be painted before new carpet.  We started Sunday afternoon with the expectation it would take us 2 days.  I mean we even went to Lowe’s and bought a ladder. Anyway once we got started, the paint flew on the walls and before we knew it we already had the 2 larger walls done.  Two coats done.  At…

Let there be light!

Let there be light!

Matt and I were very busy over the weekend.  On Saturday we drove to VA Beach for the day to see my friend Brandi and her new baby, Brooklyn.  Brooklyn was an absolute doll.  There is nothing sweeter then a baby sleeping in your arms making little baby coos. Saturday the in-laws drove up to get Matt’s aunt and grandmother.  They flew in from London for vacation.  After lunch Matt and I headed to Target to grab a few things….

Dinner for 6?

Dinner for 6?

I think so, now.  Matt and I have invited his parents and another couple to our house for Thanksgiving this year.  After the couple accepted I went into freak out mode because I only had 4 matching placemats.  I made Matt run to Crate and Barrel during lunch a few weeks ago in search of more.  I had a back up place should he not find anymore and I’m glad I did.  I decided to mix and match colors so…

Thanksgiving table

Thanksgiving table

My new obsession with Pinterest has fueled my desire to decorate the house.  For the past few days I’ve been trying to decide how to decorate the table for Thanksgiving.  We will be hosting Matt’s parents and maybe another couple.  This means I want to do something great for our Thanksgiving table.  I ran to Carolina Pottery yesterday and found a really great bowl but it was too large, not really the right color and well, too pricey. At lunch…

I like owls

I like owls

For some weird reason, lately I am really digging owls.  Hence the new blog header.  🙂  Today I was browsing Etsy and I found some cute owl prints.  They are printed on old dictionary paper.  I think I’m in love.  I have no idea where I would put them but they are just so cute. I really need to get back in the swing of decorating.  I’ve said it numerous times but I really need to start making Matt’s house…

I’ve been shopping

I’ve been shopping

Today at lunch I went to one of my fave lunch time spots, yep Carolina Pottery.  I actually only set out to buy my big vase, you may remember this post, and to get an NC State blanket for the new car.  I decided I had put off my new vase long enough and Matt and I wanted a blanket to keep in the car for tailgating.  Not that I think we will do a lot of sitting in the…
