I am workin’ on an Easter post, but in the meantime, I wanted show you a few new things around the house. Since none of us (at least no-one I know) has the dinero to re-do their house right now, when I feel the itch to switch things up, I look close to home. I find things I have laying around and get clever.
1.) We had a large map hanging in our living room for awhile. It was fine, but not very “us”. It was taking up a whole wall, so I looked at it all the time and finally thought….I would rather have a bare wall than something I’m not lovin’. Turns out I don’t like blank walls. So, I made something happen during one of Miss K’s naps the other day. I have some vintage fence pieces and I threw one up on the wall (same nail holes and everything) and then threw up some vintage photos and paper. All of the photos are family members. (The beautiful sepia print of the lady is Sean’s late grandmother, Sydna) It has been so neat to look at each of the pictures and think of fun things I can do during the year to switch it up. If you have ANY ideas for it-send them to me.
2.) I have met some of the nicest people as a result of blogging. People I would have never known otherwise and am so blessed to call friends. I posted awhile back on my old “vintage delights” blog (RIP) that I am in love with old, PYREX dishes. I found a fun, orange one at a thrift store and excited to add to my collection. I was THRILLED the other day when a blog friend, Elma, sent me three PYREX refrigerator dishes. Yellow and Red.
Thank you so much, Elma. They will be used all the time. You made me so happy….
3.) I am toying with the idea of doing a weekly post re: Cheap (read FREE) home decor and renovation. I need a name for it and I am fresh out of snazzy-ness. You got anything?
Have a good Monday everyone.
