Spring is Here!

My apologizes for the absence.  With the weather turning warm, I have had a touch of spring fever.  Yesterday, we went out for a walk in the woods and found these.

Just a small little patch of teeny tiny daffodils that grew wild. Of course we had to pick some.

After a while a teeny tiny spider got on my daughter's hand.  Then the flower pickin' party was over.
It was fun while it lasted.  Now I have a lovely, teeny tiny bouquet in my kitchen.

I have done a few projects, but I will only show you one today.

Do you read Amy at The Red Chair Blog?  I love it.  Go over there when you get a chance.

Anyway, she has a table on her front porch that I fell in love with.  It is awesome! 

It took me about a month to find the right table at the right price, but one came up on Craig's List  last week.  It was bright red and only 10 dollars.  It was MINE!!

Ready to see it?


Isn't she a beauty?!?  I love it.  My husband even loves it.  I had to use Kilz primer to get rid of the bright red color. I then used a hi-gloss white spray paint for the legs and brushed 3 coats of chalkboard paint on top. 

I did the floral arrangement on the table.  I'm not very good at it, but it will do for now. 

I put my spring wreath on the door that I bought it at the end of season last year.  I just added a pretty green little bird.
TA-DA!  I don't know why I added a bird, 'cause we always have birds hiding in our wreaths.  They scare the crap out of me.  And they poop on my door.  Some days my door looks like a Jackson Pollack painting.  But not today!

So, a few weeks ago I won a prize from Finding Fabulous. The prize was a gift certificate by to an Etsy shop owned by One Cheap B*tch.  The shop is filled with a TON of beautiful things.   She even has some sachets that made it in the issue of Romantic Homes.  No joke.  Page 29.  On the bottom.  AWESOME!

It was impossible for me to pick out what I wanted.  It became sort of a joke with my husband.  Doesn't he know that important decisions like this take time?  I finally just gave up and asked her to send me a surprise package. 

Boy did I get a surprise package of CUTENESS!   Just look at it!

How great is all this?!?

The picture fame with sheet music.  I doubt I'll but a picture in it 'cause I love the look of the sheet music.

The three little tins with crowns and a piece of bling.  I think I'm going to stick a magnet on the back to but on my idea board.  I'll keep some of my craft supplies in them.

The linen ribbon with all the wonderful french stamps. It is heavenly.  My girls keep stealing it to put in their hair!

I love all of it!  I think you need some of these beauties in your home, dear readers. Go treat yourself to something beautiful in her shop.  You won't regret it!
