Post 179: Fancy Fun DIY Project

I was browsing through some blogs this morning and stumbled across this fun little project at Ticklish From A Distance. Now, if I can ever get through my never ending to do list I would love to get started on this and see how it goes...I am sure some of you ladies have some Mardi Gras beads you could make some good use of ;p


I think it looks so cute outdoors. Perfect for a flower garden.

You can find the tutorial here.

Post 178: Bedroom Inspiration

Sooo, this week I am hoping to tackle the master bedroom. I have been putting it off for way too long. I have posted a few lovely pictures of rooms I looove.

How awesome is this beautiful yellow bed?
I know I posted this in the previous entry but it is too fantastic to not include again.

More grey...
I love the modern twist to this room...I am really excited to get started I am hoping I can follow through with it without getting too exhausted. If you have some pictures of fantastic grey and yellow rooms be sure to share them with me!

Post 177: Happy Weekend


This baby thing has me totally exhausted. I plan on spending my weekend getting lost in books and enjoying obnoxious amounts of sleep.

The house is coming along at a decent pace considering how out of it I have been. My next room to tackle is the master bedroom. I love the room above with its pretty yellow and grey color scheme, I hope to do something similar before baby arrives. That gives me 6 weeks, if I can keep myself awake long enough to accomplish anything!

Post 176: Happy Fathers Day!


So as a tribute to my Dad on Father's Day I thought I would share a photo circa 1992.

Hehe!

I wish this video were of better quality so you could see the deer-in-the-headlights look on his face when he found out he was going to be a Grandpa! By the way, if you have not guessed, all the little blonde kids are my little siblings :)

Post 173: I Daydream Of Sewing In An Organized Space...

Oh how I wish I had the motivation to organize and clean the sewing room. It has become a catch all for unpacked boxes, paint buckets, and all of the clothes i can no longer squeeze my pregnant body into.
(I love this pic! Found on flickr)

I have managed to squeeze myself in there when I am feeling brave and sew up some fitted crib sheets and start working on Luke's crib 'quilt'. I use the term quilt loosely because it may just become a patch work blanket since quilting sounds like a daunting task...I will post pictures of my works in progress very soon. I promise. Maybe.

Post 172: Oh My Peonies

My lovely flowers!
Peonies are my FAVORITE and they make my heart happy! The owners did a fantastic job with flowers around here. Every two weeks I get a new kind of flower blooming :D
Too bad they were not able to keep up with the vegetable garden...It is my project for next year!
