~ Done! ~

I have been working on a project for a few months now.... scrapbooking my wedding pictures! I. am. finally. done. I can hardly believe it! Now my extra sheet protectors that I ordered, need to come in the mail so I can slip them in and enjoy the totally completed project. Wow. (big sigh) That is sort of why I have a lack of posts, since I have really been putting the fire under myself to get this done.... since something big and new is looming on the horizon....

Anyway, not sure how many other projects I'll be working on since it is getting cold. My painting bug left since the autumn rains came in! =) I just think I might take you on a tour of my little house soon instead!

See you later!

~ A Sailing We Go ~

....Sailing into a toddlers room, that is! ...Here is the teaser made known! =)

My son is not a baby any more.... =(, I am (slowly!) on the way to making it a little boy's room now and put away the 'nursery' look. I am working on cutting out curtains and a quilt... (but who knows how soon I'll get it done with the list I have of all the other things I want to get accomplish this fall/winter!!! =)

Anyway, back to the sailboat sign, since this is what this post is about! I painted this up during a couple of nap times for J's room, since I want to do a nautical, sailboat theme.

(Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest and a little blurry - it was a gray day here when I took the pictures, so the lighting isn't the best!)

I like how it turned out - just need to get it all done and then I can decorate! (I like to gather everything first and then put it all up at once. =) That's just me.) I also found a couple of things at GW recently, too, which will be fun in there when I get at it!!

I just need to find a nice, sailboat now..... Know of any someone might be giving away!?!? ;-)

Joining in for Met Monday, and on Tuesday, A Soft Place to Land!

~ Oh, I did do this! ~

I forgot! While I was not my 100% self last week, I took most of 5 of J's nap times (yes FIVE, precious nap times = about 7-8 hours worth!) and finished the last thing to make the living room updating complete.


I know... it doesn't look like much, but it was time consuming (2 coats of paint on each side and then scraping away paint from 30 glass panes!!!) It looks much better - just imagine reddish brown before...

The teaser reveal coming Monday! =)

~ Where I Disappeared to... ~

Sorry, that I've been pretty scarce lately, dear readers..... but I've been fighting a sore throat, slight earaches and head congestion for over a week now and I had a cold the whole previous week.... Anyway, I finally got some meds and hopefully will be back to my normal self some time soon and can get some projects done to blog about! =) Til then, see you around!

P.S. I did get one done that has something to do with the pictures above.... need to take a picture of it and let you see...... Sometime... soon.... tease, tease..... =)

~ Cake, Anyone? ~

Love, love, love this cake plate! Mine (a wedding gift! =( ) broke on my son's 1st birthday in April (never, never, never put a warm cake on a cake plate and then put it in the refrigerator!!!!! You will be very sad.) So.....

I had wanted to buy the same one I had... though it would really be just for looks most of the time and for sentimental reasons (which do mean a lot to me).... BUT I didn't want to spend $30 on it!!
Then I came across this the other day in GW and fell in love and gave up my sentimental reasons, because.....
It was only $4.50! Which I could justify more easily! =) It certainly is not as big - as my other one was very large - but I like it anyway and it will do! I really like the simple dainty flowers and the one butterfly on the stand part. It makes me smile.

(It looks to me like it actually might be vintage - the glass is different than most nowadays and there even was one bubble in it. Any expert opinions would be appreciated! Maybe you might know the name and maker??)
