It's funny how as I get older I get unnaturally excited about odd little things.
Mostly my excitement has to do with something in our house, our dog, or something I cleaned.
Here are some examples:
- we recently got a new mega-whopping vacuum cleaner. I was so excited to vacuum with it for the first time that I had to take a video of the event and send it to Hubs while he was at work.
- purchasing a new organic tablecloth is the highlight of my...week. (do I have a life?)
- Fabienne learned how to swim a few weeks ago - in the bathtub. I thought it was the coolest thing ever - for about three days.
Anyway, I think you get the picture.
Little things brighten my life - and I love it.
Over the past few weeks I have collected some new things for the house
(our 'house' that is really an apartment - I just like the word house better because it is our home and it sounds a little nicer).
So I thought it would be fun to share a few little things with you!
I got this Birdcage at Joann Fabrics.
I had seen it for months and didn't get it - but then it went to 50% off ($16.99!) and I had to get it.
I am such a sucker for bird decor.
So now it's hanging on a wall in the dining room.
Everytime Josh walks by he bumps into it - he hates it.
Remember my post a few weeks ago about blue and white?
well...I went out and got a few things for our new dining room set in...you guessed it...blue and white!
Cow creamer - Target
Blue Glasses - Vintage from my Memaw
Porcelain Birds - Michael's
Sorry for the crappy photos.
I took them last week while cooking Easter dinner and didn't care much about the photos as much as my burning food.
Placemat, tablecloth, plates, square dish - Target
My Memaw gave me this vintage plate (with a wall hanger!) to match the dining room.
I remember when I was a young girl she had this hanging on her wall in her dining room.
Our bathroom was in desperate need of a Springtime makeover.
I wish I had some before pictures but...I'm too ADD and forgot.
Before the colors were browns and dark blues. Perfect for the winter months and it was super cozy but I just had to brighten things up for Spring.
Again with the birds...It's funny because I hate real birds.
Shower curtain - Target
Birdcage wall decor - Michaels
One last thing on the subject of our home.
If you do not have a wax melting pot...get one!
I can't believe I ever lived without it.
You can get the pot for as cheap as $3 at Wal-mart and the wax cubes are only $2 for 6 - which last forever.
Wal-mart has dozens of different wax scents and the smells are not overpowering.
My favorite scents are Clothesline Linen and Mixed Berry Cheesecake.
I always have this thing lit.
Last thing to note
My giveaway ends tonight at 11pm!
