Things are already looking up from the beginning of the week. It's looking like both the boy and I are getting new jobs. We have a wedding party to attend with tons good friends on Saturday. On Sunday we are planning to be at the Lake Eola Farmers Market. What a difference a week makes. :)
Ohh and P. S. We are going on Vacation on Wednesday!! Yahoo!!
One of the blog followers asked me to help her with styling her bookshelf. Maybe some of you would like the same advice. Bookshelves can be tricky, and it's all about composition really. Here are some good tips.
a.) Group like things together.
b.) Odd number arrangements of objects looks great in a vignette.
c.) Turn a few books on their side.
d.) A bookcase doesn't always have to be about the books, add in a few unique objects and artwork.
e.) A little contrast goes a long way.
f.) Baskets or boxes do wonders. Hide all of that clutter.
Ok first of all I think most of you know by now, but I'm just going to say it. I have a chevron obsession. I don't know what it is but it draws me in every time. I found these great chevron prints at Anthropologie ( With Anthropologie I'm not obsessed but I might be a catagory 2 stalker). The pillows are even on sale!
These are a few really great ideas, cheap or free with a little imagination. This is fun for all of those mom's that have the kids home for the summer and need to occupy their time. Try these :)
*These are tp rolls!
* Just a little cardboard, some magic markers, and a hole punch.
* Aluminum foil, rolls of paper towls or rolled up dish towls, and tissue paper.
* Water, paint brush, and a driveway.
Have fun this week with the kiddo's. Even if it's just the neighbor's kids! I love the wings on the shoes!
I just changed my dish soap container into an olive oil decanter. It looks so much cuter than my regular dawn dish soap bottle. These little things shouldn't make me so happy. The next thing on my list is to change my laundry soap and dryer sheets into pretty little containers. The dryer sheets when they are left out make the room smell so good!
