No excuses... but you will get some anyway

Not that there are a ton of people (yet :)) keeping up with my little blog but I should have posted SOMETHING this month. Here are some reasons why I haven't:


1) some of my favorite people came to visit (one even crawled for the first time),


2) went to the beach with these people,


3) is there a 3rd excuse? No, but we had a great time.


I guess I don't need a specific project to post something but it is (in theory) a way to finish or at least start something. Here is my current to do list:


1) make headboard using YHL tutorial


2) use the amazing shells I now have for something


3) paint, paint and PAINT


4) label, label and LABEL


5) divide and conquer another yard sale


6) do-it-myself art project (using an amazing curtain, art frame and staples - similar to headboard project)


7) redo a lampshade- easy project but did not buy enough ribbon


So what is on your to-do list? All excuses accepted.

Welcome to the family

When we were first living together my husband tried to get plants in the house. I thought they looked too seventies. Um, huh? was his response. Or translated, "How the HELL can a PLANT look too seventies?"


I think there was some macrame involved at the time, left over from some misplaced bachelor decorating fiasco. Oh, BTW we were not dating in the 1970's I was an INFANT. 


So we have this unused corner in our dining room (please, I would love a dining room). So we have this unused corner in the room where we eat. The only thing there is this carbon monoxide alarm.




Good for safety, not for decorating.  This gave me an opportunity to buy another one of these. Bliss. 










And this.  
Thanks to YoungHouseLove's post about How About Orange's Ikea name game. Does it count if it is from Ikea? 


I would like to welcome PƅLMKE to the family.






         My advice? Watch out for these two.
