One single thrift store find....

Sunday, April 26, 2009

...I ran into the thrift store this weekend and found these!!

....in totally pristine condition! I'm kinda funny about preworn shoes but these are a plastic material so easily wiped and sprayed with lysol....okay back to the deal....$3.00...ha! These retail for $35.00...check them out here. They are OkaB. brand ......gold with a big 'ol flower! So cute with my painted tootsies this summer. So....my find was completely indulgent and selfish.....no DIY projects this time around :)

Our Boy Nursery Tour

Daily I am continuing to be inspired by the blogs I follow. I simply love peeking into someone's kitchen or reading nook to see how the space it used and how it is decorated. I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of our spaces too.

Being number 5, little dubs had to have a nursery built around leftovers... :) But I had fun using what we already had in a different way and adding small embellishments.....like this old window frame I purchased in Shipshewana, Indiana. All I did was wipe it down with a damp cloth! The small canvas paintings were purchased from ebay.

The walls were already a brown Benjamin Moore Color from Pottery Barn...I cannot find the color swatch for the life of me!

The bedding, quilt, chair pillow, curtain and rug are Pottery Barn Kids all purchased on ebay. My in-laws gave us this gliding chair/ottoman when we had our first, and while its not the most deco savvy...I love it! That little hutch was also purchased in Shipshewana.

I have a beautiful scripture on the wall above the nightstand that used to be in the girls' room.

Finally, I recently added this mobile that I had fun making :) He loves it!!

Packing for Vacay!

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

So we take off Friday morning.....the whole fam. I'm not sure what it is but getting ready for vacation puts me in uber organizer, get everything done NOW mode! My mind is saying "huh?" I mean having my pantry organized is great but not when I have a bazillion other things I need to be doing......

........like making sure everyone has undies and jammies for the trip! :) So today entailed lots of laundry, organinzing the pantry, the spice cupboard and the lazy susan. Oh yeah, and a few things got packed for vacay.......
