We are looking to move....

Well hello! It's certainly been a while. We're happy to announce that we are thinking about moving! We NEED more space! We found a 2 bedroom, two bath, 11 miles from our current location. Quite residential area, close to Turnpike and most importantly...MORE SPACE!

DIY: Jewelry Box

Emily and I were at Goodwill the other week and I found this for a whopping $0.97!

 After a trip to Home Depot, we came back with a half pint of Valspar's Lyndhurst Duchess Blue and our very own Purdy Brushes.

After some sanding and about 4 layers.....

Ta da!

What do you think?

DIY: Sunburst Mirror

Alternate post titles: For cereal? Upcycled cereal boxes. Or - How to burn each of your fingers in under an hour.

Emily from My Name is Jellybean and I spent and afternoon crafting. We used the instructions from Under The Table and Dreaming by Stephanie Lynn. They turned out pretty well! We decided to paint them a flat black with light coat of a pewter.

If we were IKEA furniture...

I would be a desk. And Hubby would be a desk.

And together we are a chair....

What does that make you?

Night on the Town

Two-ish weeks ago, Dani and I celebrated her birthday (a month early) with dinner and a show at the Fulton Opera House.

It was fan-freaking-tastic! Highly recommended***** <5 Stars>

We realized that it had been the first time in 2 years that we had our own "girls nite." Thanks Dustin! :-)

DIY: Wall Art

We had 2 blank canvases laying around. Well, they were hiding behind our buffet in the dining room. Enter JoAnn Fabric. For a mere $6.99/yd I bought some abstract fabric and covered the canvases for some cheap-o art for our oddly proportioned wall.

2 blank canvases
Small nails
Stapler (for when your fingers are too bruised to hold the tiny nails any more)


Photo Gallery

We had piles of photo framer lying around so we decided to adorn a very blank wall (see sad wall below):

Choice A:

Choice B:

Choice C: Ta da! It's on the wall!

Issues we ran into:
The square frame to the right in choices A & B had no wall hangers, so back to the pile it went.
Being level! Had to enlist the hubby's help.
Marking and remarking nail holes 2...3....*cough*...4 times

Overall, we are pleased with the wall decor. Makes our white walls feel a bit more homey.

Haute Look...heart

Dear Haute Look,

Give me free stuff because I'm awesome.

NO? Ok. I'll at least admire all of your pretty things (leather purses) from afar until they are majorly on sale again and I'll snatch one up.

You too can admire their wares. READ MY LIPS (errr text): Designer stuff, generally at least 50% off. Can't go wrong.

Crafty. Or Crafty:Fail

So here's the deal. I tried to be a crafty and find letters online using Google Images to spell out our last name. This is what I made:

 I think it looks like a ransom note. Someone stole my last name and is now keeping it hostage.

Actually, I just googled "ransom note" and found this handy generator:

Maybe I'll reconsider....

Opinions: crafty or crafty: fail?

Water Bottles

Going "green" is all the rage these days, but for me it was an easy decision to switch from the regular plastic, disposable bottles to a reusable one. I know a lot of people prefer the Klean Kanteen or other stainless steel bottles, but they still taste metallicy to me. Therefore, our bottles of choice are plastic, dishwasher safe and colorful.

I switched about 3 years ago, the hubby switched about a year ago. For us it is easy. We don't have to worry about running out of bottles. And thanks to good ol' tap water and our Brita filter, we have an endless supply of H2O. I am currently, looking for the best deal on 1L Camelbak Big Bite bottles. The inner valve on mine has cracked and now leaks and the hubby would like to upgrade to a larger bottle. The bottles of choice:

The questions I pose to you:

When and why did you make the switch to reusable water bottles?


Why do you consciously choose to keep cluttering and killing the planet that we call home?
