Dreaming of a new sofa…

I’m still working on these darn cushion covers for my ginormous couch (seems ginormous, at least) so, of course, my mind has been dreaming of the day when I can get a new sofa.  A brand spanking, shiny, untouched work of art.  The oldest is 3 1/2 and the twins are 21 months… I think it’s going to be awhile cause you know these kiddos don’t give a hoot about upholstery!  At least for now I can oogle some works of art… which made me wonder why everyone has such “normal” looking sofas.  Next go ’round, I want something less ginormous and more spectacular!






But I think my favorite is the next one!  Whoever came up with this definitely has a sense of humor!

Have a fab-u-lous weekend friends!  I hope I didn’t give you any ideas on what to do with all those stuffed animals your kids have lying around the house!!

New Door!

Howdy Friends!!

I’m so excited that I just couldn’t wait for the “final” to show you my new beautiful door!  This bathroom has been a sore subject with me the last few years.  I just can’t decide what to do with her.  Here’s the problem – She’s really not that bad, but the layout is kinda weird, so to do the easy fixes wouldn’t really solve the problems I have with her.  Ugh!  What to do?!  The one thing I knew was a MUST was changing out the door.


So, I don’t think the lights are on, but it’s super sunny outside and it feels dark in here.  Always.  I went to the big guys first, Lowes and Home Depot, and they didn’t have exactly what I was looking for.  And I love Lowes (so no knock here) but the price was kinda steep for 2nd best.  I ended up going on-line, pricing out tons of doors and getting referred to Jose over at Stock N Building Lumber.  He was a big help and we picked out the perfect door!  AND the price wasn’t too bad… higher than others but when you’re getting what you want, isn’t it worth it?!  It’s a door, for gosh sakes, you’re not gonna change that anytime soon!


Yes, I need to paint the door – She’s so naked!!  But I’m loving the light and the shade inside the door is CCCCOOOOOOLLLL!!  The bathroom still has tons of issues (avert your eyes from the half-light switch), but at least one thing has been righted.  For now, the compulsive remodeler in me is quieted… we’ll see how long that lasts!

I got the bells

I’m really feeling bell details in decor right now!  Look how creative this bell installation is.  There is just something so cool about it… modern, but calling on the past.  Loves!


So, I’m thinking that I’m going to channel my bell obsession right not into my Restore find.  Here’s the eye candy I’ve been using as inspiration.






I’m having a girlie moment…wait for it…”OMG!  Those teensie bells are just sooooo cute!”

I realize my little fixture is not a lantern, not bamboo and not even square, but there’s some neat fish-scale details there that I think channel an Asian flair.  And I gotta worth with what I got, right?!

Am I on my own here or are you having the bells today too?

By the way, these super purdy lights ain’t cheap and my little masterpiece is currently clocking in at $7!  Hope you like her too… should be done in a day or two.
