The kid and I had good intentions today.
We were going to go to the gym for a good workout, run an errand or two, and take the pups to get vaccinations.
Well, we remembered we had to let my mom’s dogs out, then we went to get a pair of the child’s jeans altered before school resumes, then we ran to JoAnn‘s to get today’s project, then Dollar Tree for paint brushes, then we thought we needed something for dinner so we went to Fresh Market …
By that point we had 15 minutes to grab the pups and make it to the vet.
So guess what we didn’t have time for? Of course … the gym. So we decided since we were feeling bad about ourselves anyway, we might as well go home and make this world famous Sugar Cookie recipe I just discovered from one of my favorite bloggers: Vintage Revivals.
I (meaning Topher — since he does the baking) never had much success with made “from scratch” sugar cookies, so I was a little wary.
Since I had my post to write, the unnamed child decided try this one out on her own.
These. Are. Great!!
We ate one (or three) last night (and maybe two for breakfast … don’t judge — we’ll make it to the gym today).
Speaking of eating, that brings me to today’s project.
As you know, I’ve been trying to tie the colors in my home together lately (at least colors other than beige).
Since I painted the chandelier in the kitchen turquoise I’ve been trying to tie-in some of the accessories also.
I picked-up these 3-D letters at Joann Fabric yesterday.
They were around $4 a piece, and I used the 40% off coupon that I downloaded on my phone.
I then just spray painted them Valspar’s Tropical Oasis (the same color as the chandelier) and then placed the letters above my cabinets.
I really like how they turned out! What a fun, quick pop of color!
Although after all those cookies, I may have to rearrange them to spell “A T E” instead.
Have a great day, and please show Mandi at Vintage Revivals a little love!
