On a happier note today is the first official day of my very favorite season! Can I get a 'Yay Fall!!!'?? I'm having a 31 party tonight. I wanted to go all out and decorate for fall but I don't feel like pulling stuff out of the attic nor do I have extra money to get anything new. Having to replace the hot water heater about killed us :(
Oh! I also forgot to Thankful Thursday yesterday. Thanks to other blogs. No,really I was looking at all the AWESOME homes over at Life Made Lovely's weekly feature of Home Made Lovely. I was in love with all of the cute little vignettes in every ones home and realized I hadn't done that in a while. So I thought what can I do? I'm feeling creative. Then I remembered the little shelf up in the attic that was shaped like a little canoe.
So I'm gonna say #1I'm Thankful for Heather and Life Made Lovely because it's a great blog and inspired me yesterday!! Here's what I did:
|Used to hold Boyds Bears|
|spray primer is my friend|
|Robins Egg Blue (Thank you Glidden giveaway!)|
|Drying on the front porch (thanks to the rain!)|
There is actually a bracket on the back to hang it up. Once it dried (and I just could not wait!!!) I took it up to my very boring,very much needs painted second floor landing/hall. I hung it up next to the bathroom.
I think I want to put something on the back like a pretty paper to make it pop!
|Top shelf is holding 2 vintage kids books and a nifty looking old alarm clock|
|middle shelf has artwork made for my by my cousin JoeyAnn|
|bottom shelf are the BFF (Blessed Friends Forever) goodies from Josie *not us in the photo ;)|
So for #2 I'm thankful to those ladies for remembering my birthday!
And just for kicks #3 is the rarely cleaned bathroom
|As you can see it's a tight space......imagine having to get down there and clean up little boy pee. Not fun :(|
Ok here's a few shots for InstaFriday :)
|Yummy Honey Crisp Apples!!|
|Caramelized Brussel Sprouts and Bacon. And how cute is that bowl???|
|Strange little man who asked me to cut his toenails|
More often than not that strange little man is playing around on my phone. Here's a small sampling of some of the stuff I find on my camera roll
|Stella 'in jail'|
|Arthur in a dirty mug|
|The back of Noah's head in the school auditorium.|
So there is my combined whining/Thankful Thursday and InstaFriday post :) Have a swell weekend!!
