Aqua Striped Dresser and How the Easter Bunny Was Dead


Happy Thursday Everyone! With Easter right around the corner, my hubby, the unnamed child, and I were doing a little reminiscing.  My daughter was one of the last kids in her class that still believed in Santa. We loved that she still had faith in the big guy, and it made Christmas that much more magical to her. So when she found out the truth ... well, she went c.r.a.z.y, and told us that we were liars and how dare we trick her and she hated us for weeks. The same year that she found out … [Read more...]

Bunny Silhouette Painted Mason Jar


Happy Friday everyone!!! It's been a typical, crazy week around here. I had custom pieces I had to finish up for clients, furniture pieces for the booth to finish up, and yesterday was Topher's 40th birthday! I asked him whether or not he wanted a big party, but he declined. So we went out to his favorite Mexican restaurant, came back home, opened gifts, and then had his favorite lemon pie. Yesterday was the first day it has been warm enough here to go to yard sales, and I ended up with a … [Read more...]

Crepe Paper Easter Basket

Crepe-Paper-Easter -Basket

Today is a good day my friends! Spring has finally sprung here in Kansas, and I get a much needed haircut. I feel like going for a big change, but I have two trips coming up in the next couple of months, and I'm not sure if I want to take the risk. The last time I did a major change to my hair (I really chopped it short), I hated it. You would think having long hair would be a lot more work than short hair, but that is NOT the case! When it's long, I can just throw it up in a bun or a … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday!!! #55


Happy Friday everyone!!! It most definitely does not feel like Spring here in Kansas! Yesterday it was freezing with crazy wind, and it doesn't look like it's going to be too much warmer today, but at least the sun is supposed to come out. I have been a busy bee around here, trying to finish up more projects for my booth. I have been working on one mammoth of a dresser, and I finally finished all of the eight giant drawers last night. Now I just have to distress the shell and wax the whole … [Read more...]

Parisian Painted Side Table


Happy Hump Day everyone! It's a pretty gloomy, rainy day here, but I planned on staying inside to paint anyway. I'm going to put a roast on the stove and stay in my comfy painting sweats -- and may even take a few snuggle breaks with the pups now and then. I've been starting to bring my laptop into my studio while I work, and I have been watching some movies on Netflix. I don't spend a lot of time picking them out, so I have just been randomly clicking on movies and hoping for the … [Read more...]

Striped Easter Rabbit Silhouette


As you all know I have been a little behind on the Easter decor since I have been getting ready to open my new furniture space.  Topher and I have been running around like crazy people painting, driving back and forth, and hauling all my pieces down there. The good news is it opens today!! It is called RElove All Things Shabby and is at 515 N Woodlawn, at the corner of Central and Woodlawn for all of you locals. You will know mine right away as it is the turquoise striped booth (I will try to … [Read more...]
