New Kitchen Table

What does adding a new baby to the family mean...why it means we need a new kitchen table that seats our family of FIVE!  This one should do nicely...

On a Mission

A while back I began a mission to do something with the UGLY outlet plates in my house.  They are EVERYWHERE and really a rather boring stamp in EVERY room.  So I came up with this little idea...

Why not frame it!  A standard 5 x 7 frame fits a three switch plate cover PERFECTLY! to hunt down at least 30 more!

Apothicary Jar Addicition!

I can't stop making these awesome jars.  Every time I am out, I see something that is just begging to be turned into an apopthicary jar.  They are so fun to make!  Check out the latest one I threw together! 

If you look closely, this jar is from Walmart!  I used a silver jar lid from another pot I broke, a silver candler holder and a cross I had around and it all came together!

Plaground ball redo!

Look out Grayson and Josh (my sweet kids), not even your toys are safe from Mommy's decorating!  I snagged an old Dora playground ball that was deflated and made this!

The vase was from GW for $3.95.  I just loved the shape.  I added an old pearl braclet that wasn't ever getting to go out on my wrist.  I think it is happy to adorn this little creation! 

Go check the garage for deflated balls, grab some moss and a glue gun and make yourself a divine new creation!  Have a blessed day.  Thank you to all for your comments on my blog.  I love knowing you are out there and sharing this love of decorting with ya!  Hugs -

FORCING Spring to Come!

Well...I decided to decorate a bit outside on my front porch yesterday with every intent of gently and lovingly FORCING Spring to come...(as if I have any control).  Today, in Georgia, it snowed!  Yep, enough to close the schools and all.  But my bright cheery yellow is like a ray of hope, that soon...Spring will come!

Pillow Talk...Aren't they divine!

Here is a great project for Spring. I found these pillows on sale for $4.00 ea. I did a little embellishment! You really have to try this super easy project.  

BEFORE:  Bold, but a bit blah...

AFTER...Bold, bright and really fun!!!

Here's how I did it...
1.  Select 3 coordinating fabrics. 
2.  Buy some Fabric glue.  I used Fabri-Tac by Beacon Adhesives. 

3.  Trace a circle to create a flower pattern on the back side of your fabrics.  Use varying sizes for each flower.  I literally traced different size jar lids for each flower creating 5 petals.  Super easy.  (Note, pencil eraser works great on black fabrics).  Cut the flowers out. 

4. Arrange the flowers in the desired pattern and glue.  As you can see I did mine off center and wrapped over the edge a bit. 

5.  Done...Super easy, fast and great results.  They easily found a great new home!

What do you think?


I have to admit, if there was a color I didn't care for in decrating, I would have to say it was yellow. I once painted a room yellow and kept it about a month before I had it repainted...BUT...maybe I was NUTS! This color has been catching my eye EVERYWHERE lately and I am IN LOVE!!!

 What are your thoughts on yellow?  Are you a fan?  I'm sold!

Sleepover Extravaganza

Slumber Party Extraganza! 
Every 7-year old needs to experience her first sleeopver!  This party was SO fun to do and the girls had a great time!  As it turns out, almost every girl we invited had never been on a sleepover, so it was really fun to bless them a little extra at this party!  They were all so polite and gracioius little ladies. 


The party room.  It was a girls dream all glitz and glamour!
Spa Time! 
Lip gloss, nail polish, nail art and glitter hairspray! 

Rubix cube fun, while the girls waited in line. 

Every girl needs a rock to accent her perfectly polished nails! 

A girl has to have bubble gum!

Dinner Time...Make your own fruit salad and pizza.  Every girl had to have their own crysal glass (no worries on breakage...these are from the dollar store). 

After dinner we got ready for movie time! 

The cake...Each girl was designed after the guests!  This was SO fun to make! 

Before the girls giggled their way to sleep...we gave each guest a "sleepover friend" that looked like them. 

The next morning we decorated pillow cases as a memory of the girls 1st sleepover! 
And then....finally after the last guest left...We had some Mommy and Me time to reminisce about all the fun we had! 
And of course a long nap!
