I've had a plain white boring 7 on my shelf for a few months and I finally go the inspiration to do something with it :)  A 7, you say, well what's that for?  Well, it's the number of people in my immediate family...our signature I suppose.  I received these wood veneer people in the mail with my MW Express Kit and the lightbulb went on!

Green:  because I love the color!

Would make a cute Christmas gift!

Scrap fabric

Got fabric scraps left over?  I used mine to make this shabby chic lampshade for the girls room!
{inspiration:  Pinterest of course!}
I repainted the base of the lamp (it was black) to tie in with all the beautiful colors.

So sweet!

monogram canvas decor

Hi all!  Just popping in to share a little home dec project I did for the girls room!  The girls needed something above their beds and I wanted to do something with their initials.  I purchased some cheap (walmart) canvas boards, added some scrapbook paper, paper doilies, binding tape, ribbon and buttons.  I modge podge everything to the boards and hot glued the buttons on.

Emma's :)

Emmy's is pink and u love the chevron paper???
Her canvas is a little more girly.
The little angels came from my friend April.
Madi's board is a little more fits her personality :)
Two little girls with such different little attitudes, likes, dislikes....
I really love that they each have a little guardian angel watching them as they sleep.
Happy day to you all!

Trash-y to treasure!

Ok, so I was at Goodwill (again) and happened upon this {OMG how gaudy is this piece????} little mirrored tray.  Undeterred by the sheer hideousness of it, I set to work.

Two coats of satin white spray paint this afternoon and a little bit of antiquing glaze did wonders.  I washed the mirror well and dried it all up.  I thought it still needed something so I added a little metallic chalk to it. 
And here she is, ready for some pretty perfume bottles or little girlie trinkets :)
And these my friends, are all over Pinterest. 
I love them almost as much as I love turquoise paint right now so I decided to
combine the two!
They will each get a little candle inside and grace my Labor Day table :)
happy day to you all!
