That was NO fun!

First of all, Thank you God, I am feeling better.. It is NO fun being sick.. and my house went to He** in a hand basket and back again! Don't you just love this dresser!  LOVE this.. found this pic on the internet and I am dying to try this on a piece of furniture.. now I have to find the perfect piece..
Look at my new floor pillow I bought from Tuesday Mornings.. It caught my eye across the room.. It reminds me of Anna Maria Horner's fabric's and Amy Butler's floor cushion..
Oh, I LOVE the colors!
Also got some new artwork in the mail this week.. Found this wonderful artist on etsy.. Her name is
Katie Daisy and you will LOVE her work.
I have a LOVE for vintage posters.. and I love this one.. Again it's the colors.. for someone who loves white and cream.. Red is becoming a known color in my house with a lot of aqua!
My girls have had one party after another to go to lately.. lots of September Birthday's.. including Macy's which is Monday!  So this is for a friend of her's.. Lilly!
We made Lilly an outfit.. complete with a headband.
OK, this is Carly.. she entered a "fashion" contest at Sears on line..She had to order most of the outfit on line and she did a great job.. The shoes are mine.. got them at Target.. I thought she looked cute, but a little too grown up!
Both my girls loving on the dog and the camera...!
OK, so I have a funny story to share and it is worth the read.. so please read it... I promise if you are having a bad day, it will make you laugh...
So Carly, the "fashion designer" wanna be.. listens to this radio staion, 107.1 here in Cincinnati.. plays all the annoying music that drives parents anyway the other day my husband see's a piece of paper near the computer with the words: written on them.  He immediately thought it was our son's handwritting... well I knew that hand writting.. and it was not Jake's.. So asked Carly in a "no big deal" sorta way and she said, "oh yea, that was mine"  I almost died!  I asked her where she had heard about this website.. and she said "on the radio, they were advertising a contest that you could enter and win a "fun" party on their site for you and your friends" So she wrote down the website and went to it.. she immediately realized it was not a site she was suppose to be on, so she clicked off.. but I just about died.. I knew shew as telling the trusth as she is really into contest right now and I have heard that commerical myself and she is right, that is what they said.  It was one of those moments as a parent it takes all you have to keep a straight face.. Needless to say, I emailed the station and asked them why they are allowing adult sites to be advertised on a station that is geared towards teens? I have yet to get an answer..But anyway.. I wanted to share that story with you.. Kids.. you gotta Love them!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh my goodness that chest of drawers is stunning.

  2. Your daughters are very cute and she did a great job pulling together her outfit for the contest. I liked your story about her other contest "Fun Party". Remember that one for the future--you'll laugh then--maybe not now. I like the dresser to but think the drawer pulls should be something more prominent.

  3. Came across your blog today and love it, especially your newest post about the dresser. I came across another blog and someone had actually blinged up an old vintage dresser, bright pink with patchwork paper. Its so bright and funky, ive saved it to my blog as im definately going to give it a go as well:) x
