Look What I found!

I know everyone probably already has one but I didn't and I wanted one, look at the trophy cup I found, you will never guess where I found it, Homegoods and it was on clearance for $16.00, I have seen alot of bloggers displaying them and I couldn't find any until yesterday, I think it looks vintage too. Sorry about the dark pic again, we have overcast weather here again so it's hard to get good lighting.

I have also seen this idea around and thought it was so cute, I was in a store the other day and the lady was giving old books away so I took some to try this out, I removed the old covers to reaveal the binding, tied a ribbon on and added the flower on top that's it! I hope everyone has a great week, I still haven't used my paint sprayer, I did test it on a piece of wood but it has been so windy here so I wanted to wait for a good day , it seems like it is going to work out really good, no sputtering paint out and it made a really even coat onto the wood (;

Rose Dishes and Painting!

I wanted to show you all some dishes I hung above the mirror which is above my buffet, geesh, I had put my rose dishes away and I couldn't stand it anymore, I love them, what was I thinking!! Aaahhh much better now (;I also bought myself an early Christmas present, I can't wait to try this paint sprayer out but I haven't taken it out of the box yet I'm kind of intimidated, it hooks up to our air compresser, but I have to figure out how and where I'm going to use it, LOL! Wish me luck ...........Have a great weekend, we woke up to low 50's today!!

A Picture Frame turned Chalk Board

I just wanted to show you this cute picture frame on a stand I picked up at Marshalls , it was hot pink so I spray painted it a cream color and then painted the cardboard piece that would go behind the picture with some chalkboard paint, I think it turned out kind of cute (; We are getting a cold front here today, yippee, but that means that it's dreary here so my walls look really dark in the pic's but I don't care bring on the cold weather, I can't wait!!

Some Pretty Toile Pillows!

I was at Marshall's the other day and found these toile pillows from Waverly and fell in love with them, I think they will be perfect for Christmas, they also had them in blue, which of course made me think of Cindy http://romantichome.blogspot.com/, I had left her a comment about it and come to find out she had purchased them too and was posting about them today so go have a look see at hers also! Gosh it almost felt like we shopped together, LOL, hey Cindy when are we goin on that shopping trip/vacation anyways (;
