Anyone want to venture a guess?
But I have proof that I at least accomplished something.
BENCH AFTER........ I tried to resist this toile...honest I did...but I'm telling you it practically launched itself right into my cart! I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. The total cost of the bench and the material comes to $17.50.
Oh and I bought one of those cool spray can handle comfort grip thingies...I can't remember which blogger friend showed us those things...but I bought one at Home Depot for $7 and let me tell you...those things are a MUST for anyone who uses a spray can. In fact it worked so good I decided to add another project to my list. I have this end table thingie in my guest room...and when I bought it at the auction it was this mustard color. Well it looks like crap in my guest room (I know this because everyone on RMS told me so) ...but I've never gotten around to painting it. Then today I found this killer lamp at Home Goods...figured it would look pretty great in my guest bedroom. So I swapped it for the lamp that was there...and when I put it on this cabinet it just fell flat. So this is getting a paint job next day off. I'll show you the end results of that guest bedroom when I get this painted.
I also bought some fall decor stuff to put in my kitchen....I'm still trying to figure out where and how. I'll make a "not inspirational but hey I tried" post on that as soon as I get things arranged.
The color is called "celery bunch". I had no clue what colors to use with this...so I just bought some yummy thick white towels and a celery colored rug to use for now. At least it will be somewhat presentable for when they get here. And I won't be so committed that I can't change things when I really decide what I want.
And last but definitely not least....I got honored with 2 blog awards.
The first one was from Kendra from Shabby Vintage Chic I found her blog awhile back and oh my you will die when you see her house and the stuff she collects. Her blog is a "drool just waiting to happen". Go visit her and you'll see what I mean. She gave me this great award Thanks so much Kendra I'm touched that you thought of me.
And Deb from Debs Country Kisses
gave me this really pretty award...it's one I've never seen before
Now if you've never been to Deb's blog well...what the heck you waiting for??? Her "Fashion Fridays" are a must see. She's quite the fashion guru...and you'll love hanging out at her blog. Thanks Deb I really appreciate your kindness! I'll do my best to hand these and a few other awards out on one big mondo "giving blog" here pretty quick.
