joyful heart is infectious. We sat giggling about how good Jesus has been. Talking about past things... about the life she is grabbing a hold of with two hands and I couldn't be more proud of her. I've known her since she was only eleven. Prayed for her so long. Watched her struggle with so much... and I've cheered this past year as she was baptized and began making huge changes. This little cutie is my three year old niece. She wanted more juice. Precious and heart melting.
totally lazy, whenever I can get away with it. Ahem.) I painted two coats of Pro-classic latex semi gloss in "Aloe" from Sherwin Williams.
I love the little refresh to it's surface and so far the paint is really sticking- it's not chipping or scraping of. You can see brush marks from the primer but I happen to like that because it makes it look older and not as "cheap." Does that make sense? Such a happy pop of green/blue in the corner. I grabbed a piece of fun fabric and covered the chair seat too. (I probably should have organized the mess you can see in the windows. But yeah... we use this thing as our family office and y'all know what that means.)
The Graphics Fairy blog and framed it for a pop of spring time color. I am loving green right now. I also traded places with the table that resides here and my tiny book case for a change. Sometimes a girl needs a change. I love having my vintage camera collection (tiny though it may be) out and about. Not sure about the background pattern so I may need to change that eventually but it's nice to have a few shelves here. Plus our favorite card games are kept in that old blue radio parts box and it's great having it in the living room again.
I would just like to say... my giant plant in the bucket is still alive. I am in shock. I can't remember when I watered it last though so hang on while I run and do that..... ..... ..... (The tiny plant on the counter top is FAKE. So at least I know it will live.)
not getting sick again either. Mind over matter. Ha!
The Rustic Ribbon has joined us and here are just a sampling of the sweetness this girl sews. I will tell you her items are fantastic quality and I love these fabric choices. She makes all kinds of sweetness such as clutches, notebooks, journals and crayon rolls. This clutch she sent me is padded. And lined with polka-dotty fabric and has little pockets! I just love it!!
her brand new little shop!! Use "lemonade15" when you check out to get 15% off your orders!
My shop. Yeah, it's neglected. I know a bunch of you have been asking about some of the items I used to carry regularly such as chalkboards and chicken wire frames, etc... honestly I have had so many intentions of stocking back up but I've been so busy whipping out custom order after custom order (wonderful "problem" to have) and simply haven't had the time for all the things I want to make. So my shop is kind of bare bones. For now.
And that's pretty much the state of things right his minute. Always random. I think those are the only posts I am capable of writing any more and I'm linking up to Lower Case Letters blog.
How was your weekend??
