I am always so excited when it’s time to decorate my St. Patrick’s Day table. Due to the weather the past few weeks, I haven’t gotten much painting done, so I’ve been looking for fun indoor projects to do. This was the perfect project for me.
My centerpiece is always an Oxalis plant, which has the sweetest leaves that remind me of four leaf clovers. You can’t see them now, but this plant has the tiniest white blooms on it. So sweet. Whenever I see an oxalis plant, I know that Spring is on it’s way!
My niece and her sweet family have been renovating a house for the past six months. I’m so excited for them! I’ve also been working on a few things for Beeps room, including refreshing a glider for the nursery!
My neighbor was throwing this glider out. I knew it was a diamond in the rough. With a little love, it would be a beauty again!
Recovering two stools has required quite a bit of motivation on my part.
Recovering? Not Reupholstering? The definition of recovering is: to restore to or return to normal or to restore ones state of mind. Since these two projects have been driving me crazy, I’m sticking with recovering!
Honestly, once I was finished recovering both stools I wanted to kick myself for not doing it sooner!
This sweet little vanity stool was the first one to be tackled. Boy, did it need it! Here’s how I recovered two stools and my sanity.
Oh, man have we been busy here at the castle. We started what we thought would be a 2 or 3 day project, however it’s been a week since we started! In all fairness, it’s one of those do a little and wait projects. So in between work, I’ve been working on a few other projects. I’ve been making a knock off pompom pillow, putting a new lamp in the guest bath, rearranging furniture and refreshing the wrapping closet! I’m tired just writing this.
Isn’t this pom pillow cute? I had it in my basket when I remembered that I had a brand new pom pom maker in my office at home. Yep, a knock off pompom pillow was in my future!
Have you ever had a week when all of the stars aligned and everything went just right? Well, this week was one of those weeks for me. I tell you, I’m on fire! Well, as far as shopping goes.
My good friend Doris sells Mary Kay and brought some limited edition items to Pokeeno for us to look at. I picked up the perfect blush! It’s not too pink and it’s not too peach. It’s Perfect. I love it! So much so, that I called and ordered two more. I mean, it is a limited edition!
We all know that children’s rooms can get a little chaotic. Okay, a lot chaotic, messy, and unorganized in a very short amount of time. My sweet niece is getting ready to move into her new house soon, fingers crossed, and we have been working on getting her nursery decor ready for move in day for some time now. Since it’s been cold, I decided that making Adrianna’s coat rack would be the perfect indoor project for me!
We lovingly call the baby Beep, but her given name is Adrianna Paisley. I took my cue on decorating the coat rack using her name. Adrianna and paisleys! Cheesy, I know, but cute none the less. Want to know how I made the coat rack? Keep reading!
Recently, my BFF Roxanne and I were complaining that we feel like a hamster on a wheel. A lot of motion, but not getting a lot done! So we decided to band together and help each other accomplish our mound of unfinished projects. Once a week, we plan on getting together until all of our projects are finished. It’s gonna be awhile! The first project would be Roxanne’s room!
Where to start? Why, with a chandelier of course. Our plan was to bling it out and we would be done! Is that what happened? No, it is not!
Decor at my house is mixed right now. I have my Valentine’s Day Kitchen and my Mardi Gras living and dining rooms. My house is so confused!
Normally, my Spring decorating goes as follows: We start with Mardi Gras, then Valentine’s Day, followed by St. Patricks Day and finally Easter. However, this year Valentine’s Day is on Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras, celebrated on Fat Tuesday, is the day before Valentine’s Day. Have I lost you yet? Continue reading →
I love the Ten on the 10th! This month my blogger friends and I chose a Valentine’s Day theme to share with you. Can we share wonderful Valentines ideas with you for under $10? Yes, we can! Want to know how to make a Valentine’s Door Hanger that is cute and inexpensive?
Well, grab a cup of something fun and a comfy chair. I’ve got a lot to share with you! I apologize ahead of time for it being so long.
It is finally warming up here in Texas. However, the cold hasn’t bothered me too much as I didn’t venture outside a lot. I was too busy painting, decorating and adding jewelry to the dresser!
By jewelry, I mean blingy drawer pulls! One of my very favorite pieces of furniture is this super cute, small dresser that I use as a nightstand in one of my guest rooms. Originally, I had added some glass knobs for jewelry. However, overtime those glass knobs haven’t held up too well! Continue reading →
Christmas and New Years are over and it’s time to decorate for Mardi Gras! Many years ago, we were fortunate enough to celebrate Mardi Gras with some good friends of ours who live in Biloxi, MS. Ever since then, I have been hooked.
I truly love everything about Mardi Gras! The celebrations, the parties, the balls, the parades, the food, the king cakes and all things shiny! Did I mention that I love King Cake?
Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas, we certainly did here at the castle! It’s that time of year where everyone is starting their New Years resolutions and I am too.
My resolutions are a little different this year. Usually, my resolutions tend to be the same every year. Lose weight, exercise and eat healthy. Well, not this year! This year I’m running with scissors!
Merry Christmas! I’m a little last posting today. It’s cold and wet outside. As I write this, I’m sitting by the Christmas tree in my comfy clothes, there is a fire in the fireplace and hot tea at my elbow. What more could a girl ask for?
Normally, three days before Christmas I would be in a mad rush buying last minute gifts, baking, and wrapping presents. You know the drill. Actually, I have to admit that, for the first time in as long as I can remember – which admittedly isn’t all that long – I’m ready for Christmas!
