Signing back in after so long a time..... and LILLA ROSE!

Hello long, lost friends!

Wow, it has been so long since I last updated....  First off, I couldn't remember how to get into my blog, so I just ignored it!  =)  Yeah, that's a really grand idea, right??  Anyway, to catch you all up a tiny bit, my darling daughter that was in the last post is now almost TWO and is walking and about talking and has a head full of sweet ringlets!
 Isn't she the sweetest thing ever!? =)

So..... anyway.... since I did finally figure out how to get back into posting on this blog (after trying 3 different email addresses!  Yeah, I know too many right - tell you a secret, lets just say that's not all of them!) I wanted to let you all know about my newest venture!!  I'm so excited about it......

So, DRUMROLL......

I'm now a Lilla Rose Independent Consultant!

Never heard of Lilla Rose?  I hadn't either until not long ago.....  I bought a Flexi Clip and the rest is history.  They are so easy, pretty and durable - AND there is a size for EVERYONE!!  What more do you need?  They are made very well - no more broken plastic jaw clips or pulled out hair from elastic hairbands!  Also, it's all one piece - so you never lose the pin!

And they don't just have Flexi Clips!  They also have beautiful adjustable Hair Bands, Hair Sticks, Bobby Pins, You-Pins (long pins to make pretty buns!), Flexi Oh! (which are a two sided flexible hairband) and Badge Clips.

Perfect gifts for the hard-to-find-something-for person!!!

Stop by & take a look around at:  sweetwillowstyle.com to see it all!

Here are some gorgeous hairstyles you can do with them!

 They even make really cool scarf clips if you want to wear them that way!

If you are afraid to order because you don't know what size you might need here is a sizing chart and their exchange/refund policy is awesome too!!

~ Cabinet Love ~

Wow... It's been so long since I have posted a makeover.... This one was in the works for so long and it's been done for quite some time, too.... just never got around 'til now to post it! =)
And so I decided to just post and join in at Miss Mustard Seed's "Copy Me Challenge"...!

The before:

The finish on top was in sad shape...

The after:

The stained top was directly inspired by her as I've never stained anything before, but I loved that look whenever she did anything like it!

LOVE it now!
(I still might distress it up a bit, but I just haven't gotten around to doing that yet! =) ...and may or may not!)

Thanks for stopping by and looking! Hope you enjoyed it!

~ Long Time, No See ~

Wow, I'm sure all my dear readers thought I had surely forsaken this blog forever! To tell the truth, I have not really been in the mood to blog since I moved! But I thought I'd update with a FEW pictures that are already outdated.... as these were taken within the two weeks we moved in. I'd take some right now, but I am without a camera. =(

Living room (now has 'drop cloth' curtains =)

Living room again (with winter decor still up and that is changed a couple times since!)

Master bedroom (now has curtains and picures)

(and books on the shelves...)

And the totally remodeled bath that you can't see much in! (the sink wasn't in yet so that's why I didn't get a pic of it)

We still have a lot to go.... we actually did end up ripping the whole kitchen out, so that still doesn't have much for cabinets (I'm using my china cabinet and a buffet from my mother-in-law for cupboards =) But I do have a sink and dishwasher at least!! =)

And instead of the huge laundry room, we opted for a smaller one and put in a master bath!! LOVE IT!

And I've not done anything in my son's bedroom yet (no closet, as it was ripped out to make the bathroom bigger since it was hardly usable as it was {how would you like a 14in- yes I said 14 INCH- deep closet that you couldn't put a hanger in straight anyway??}), so there is still a pile of boxes in the corner!

The third bedroom - don't even ask..... it's the big, messy extra storage and tool 'closet' right now!

My parents think we did about a year's worth of remodeling in two months.... =) (I grew up in a house that is still needing to be finished 15 years later, but it was a lot bigger and in lots worse shape than this one!) We worked many long afternoons and terribly late nights, plus my hubby still had to run his business on top of that! He's so glad we're moved and we love it here! =)

Well, thanks for still checking in on me! Hope you enjoyed the mini tour and difference from what it was!!
