Easy Entry

This would be such an easy look to re-create in your own entry. I love the simple use of the shelf instead of having a larger piece of furniture. I also like how this keeps everything up off the floor.

Wall Candy

I think this beauty may be have to be mine!

statement piece

I LOVE this necklace! I collect these enamel pins and I would love to add this piece to my collection.

Shelf It

I love the look of these shelves. What a great way to display all of your collectibles. I may paint my shelving unit (see below) and try to re-create this look with some of my goodies. I will keep you posted.

Happy Weekend

Sleep, Relax, Enjoy!


The boys had so much fun tonight in the laundry basket. I love cheap entertainment!!!

Oh So Little...

but oh so cute. I made this succulent garden a couple of day's ago. I love succulents because they are so easy to take care of. They are great for any room in your house. I purchased 5 of the 7 containers on this tray from Goodwill for $1 each. You can really use any small container that you have to put the succulent in. By the way, do you see the owl peeking through on the tray?

Jam Anyone?

I had a blast today at Sweetberry Farms in Marble Falls, TX. I had never picked strawberries before and it was so fun! I loved getting down on my hands and knees and picking the berries myself. I also loved watching Ty have so much fun cutting the berries and smashing them. I will definitely be doing this again next season! Now all I need are some cute labels from Etsy! Guess I will be shopping tomorrow. So, have any of you ever picked any berries and made jam?

By the way, these pictures were taken with our family Canon EOS Digital Rebel. Much better than my little Canon Power Shot that I use for taking pictures for work.

Yep, today's the day

and in a few hours I will be holding some of these and then making some of this!!!
It's going to be a good day!

Hope you all have a beautiful day too!

Etsy pick of the Week

Oh my Goodness!!! I love this chair! The charcoal gray color is so fresh and I love the lines of the chair. I am not sure if I would leave the upholstery or change the fabric. I would definitely keep the tufting as is! I would love to add this one to my collection. Beautiful!

Gorgeous Garages

As many of you know, I can be quite obsessive compulsive especially when it comes to organizing and my spaces in my house. Today, Kris and I worked out in our garage. He helped so much and I am glad that he does not mind helping me out. Who knew having kids would bring along so much "stuff". I probably have 10 containers of baby clothes and gadgets from when Ty was a baby and from Tucker. It will be nice to get rid of it all and donate it to someone who will use it when the boys get older. I love the garages in the pictures and how clean they are. I do feel that our garage is an extension of our house. I would love to one day paint the floor and possibly have some built in cabinets.

Due to the wonderful rain that we need so bad, I will be picking strawberries next week!

Thursday, April 16, 2009


Tomorrow, I am going to Sweetberry Farms in Marble Falls to pick strawberries. I am completely looking forward to making jam with my goodies. I am thinking I may have to order these jars. I love the way they are very simple, yet modern looking. I have not yet decided on the recipe that I am going to use. I might use this one from Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa) and Food Network.

I am loving these sandals from Target. They are so fresh and cute for the summer and for only $29.99 they are a steal!
