She's Alive!! (Anthropologie Inspired Lamp)

So, when I came across THIS & THIS I knew I had to have one!!! I started hitting up some local thrift and antique stores to find the perfect pieces. And.............Well................Here she is!!!!

I call her Audrey because lets face it she is one classy lady!

I LOVE her!! She fits in perfect with my kitchen revamping plans.

I knew a classy lady like Audrey needed the perfect hat. So, I followed THIS tutorial to top her off.

What do you think??

Thank you so much to Mandi, Erika, and Sarah for the great inspiration. You girls ROCK!!

So, that's it for today.

Until next time.......... Have a Blessed day!!

Kitchen & Dining Room Revamp

So, I'm really in the mood to Revamp my Kitchen & Dining Room. I wanted to sit down and gather all of my thoughts so I made up an Olioboard for each room.

This all started when my sister gave me This as a "Thank You" for throwing her shower:

Yep, I'm pretty much redecorating my kitchen just so I can display this Bad Boy. It's turning out to be pretty fun!

Here is my Olioboard for the kitchen:

And for the Dining Room:

I'll try to blog as I go. Please feel free to comment with suggestions & brilliant ideas! :)

Until Next Time........

Have A Blessed Day!

Rustic Anthropologie Inspired Baby Shower

As promised......... Here are the pics from my Sister's Baby Shower. It was this past weekend and it turned out LOVELY!! Just what I had envisioned!!

I was going for a Rustic, Anthropologie vibe with a touch of the outdoors. My Sister and her Hubby are way into being outdoors and are actually doing the nursery in an Outdoors theme. I wanted to carry that over to the shower.

So, let's just dive right in and start with the best part......... The Dessert Bar!! :)

I used burlap to make a cute little banner to go over the Dessert Bar and stenciled Baby Boy in Orange and Turquoise. I used these two colors as a fun "pop" against the neutral burlap. You will see them more as we go along.

All of the "Yummy Goodness" that you see was handmade by me and my parents!
The little "Treat" sign I made using a little slate board from Michaels that I trimmed with rolled moss. So easy and super cute!!

Ok, take a few minutes to drool................

Lemon Coconut Poundcake:

Amaretto Almond Poundcake, Carrot cupcakes(mini & regular), Chocolate Chip Cookies(can't go wrong!):

Strawberries & Cream Cake Pops:

S'mores Pops:

These are a huge hit and sooooo easy to make!!

Button Cookies (in Orange & Turquoise of course!):

And the next best part???

The Candy Buffet!!!:

This was our "Thank You" to all of our guests. Everyone filled up a little brown bag before they left. :)

We also had a little station for everyone to enter the Diaper raffle and to write "Love Notes" to baby Brayden or "Words of Wisdom" for his Mommy & Daddy":

No Baby Shower is complete without a cute Clothes Line!! :)

The Food:

We had 7 different quiches to choose from, salads, a beautiful cheese platter and bread & muffins. YUMMY!!!

Moving Outdoors......

We had tables & chairs set up in the back for everyone to enjoy lunch and play games. The weather was perfect!!

I used burlap outside as well. I placed a piece in the center of the tables and also used it to wrap Orange ranunculus.

I added some candles that I had covered in scrapbook paper that looked like barnwood and finished them off with some burlap ribbon.

We picked up the cute little animals at Target around the holidays. The acorns I actually found on clearance at Walmart.

I wanted to display some of the pictures that I had taken of my sister so I put them in these cute mason jars and added the wood fillers to the bottom (also found on clearance at Walmart).

I needed to add a pop of color outside so I made another banner. this time I used scrapbook paper and some felt letters that I found at Michaels. I couldn't believe they came in orange!! :)


I couldn't resist hanging these little guys in the tree!! :)

I think that just about covers it! It was a great day!! Here are a few last shots of the tables, our guests and my sister digging into her gifts.

Here is one last pic of me & my sister. How great does she look!!?? And yes, that is me!! I got myself a new little Pixie cut and went dark!! So fun!! I'm lovin' it!!

Now that the shower is over I don't know what to do with myself!! I have a few projects in mind but, not sure how soon they will get done.

So, until then.........

Have A Blessed Day!!

Shower Invites

As I mentioned in my previous post, my sister's baby shower is coming up (next weekend actually). I can't really give any details until after the shower because most of it is a surprise. It's going to be fabulous!! So many little details! However, I think it's probably safe to share the invites with you guys. I ordered them from GoodFrau on Etsy and I LOVE them!! They are exactly what I was looking for. Emily was a pleasure to work with too!

Check out her shop HERE & the invites that I chose HERE

That's all I can share for now. :(

More goodness to come after the shower! Promise!

Until then......

Have a Blessed Day!
