Fun friday finds...

Have you ever gone thrifting and had something call to you? I had seen this goose at Savers and I swear he kept calling for me to get him. I ignored. But after about the 3rd time of him calling for me I gave in and now he has a cozy little place filled with goodies for my grandies on my counter!

I love this little house tea pot/creamer thing, honestly I am not sure what it is but it is adorable!

These two little cuties actually came seperate but I put the cow in the little bottle when I got home and he has remained there.

Until later,

Thankful Thursday...

Okay, so I will admit it my blog has been a little bit lame this week, but I have a good excuse, I took a staycation with the hubster. It was so nice, just hanging out, thrifting and working on projects. I promise there will be something to show for it in the near future. I just happen to have alot in process and nothing finished! For this Thursday I am so thankful for...
My Hubster!! He really is the greatest, I could not do half of the projects I do without his help! I am the luckiest girl in the world!

Until later,

Me, Me Monday, Salt and Pepper Shakers...

Somehow I got started collecting Salt and Pepper Shakers so I thought I would share them with you!
I will start with my Easter ones that are out and about my house! These little eggs are on my table -

These little bunnies are in my greeting into the kitchen
These little lambs are on one of my counter tops -
These are my fav easter shakers they sit on a platter that holds boiled or deviled eggs, I just love the whole set!
Now for the rest of the collection -

These little guys are in my window sill

These are both some of my favorites, I love the big roosters and I am a HUGE Denver Broncos fan!

This is my cabinet full of shakers
Here is a close-up of each shelf -
And last but not least, this little shelf really holds some of my very favorites, alot of them are antique!

I hope you've enjoyed my collection.

Easter Egg Wreath...

I wanted a large wreath to hang on my fireplace and I have seen quite of few of theser around so I decided to make one. Like I said I have seen quite a few so I didn't do a tutorial. Here it is-
My rows started thick and got thinner towards the flowers, also, if I do one in the future I will paint the wreath first, I don't love all the white showing through. Its a little different but it will work. Now I just need to get it hung up!

Until later,

Butterflies for Taylor...

So the hubster and I took Tay thrifting with us one day and she found a picture of butterflies that she really wanted, but even though we were at a thrift store they wanted like $15 for it, umm as much as I love her it just wasn't worth it and I knew I could do one even better.
I started with this -
The shadow box frame I found at the DI for $1. It was brown but Taylor loves blue, so of course now it is blue! I found the butterfly printables on familyfun.com.
Here we are in progress -
The butterflies are colored on both sides, because you can see both sides through the glass.
Here is the finished project -
You can't really tell in the pics but the butterflies look like they could fly off at any moment, so cute!
This really is so much better then the one she wanted, I know she will love this, I can't wait to give it to her!

Thanks for stopping by!

Me, Me Monday, Living Room edition....

This week I would like to invite you into my living room! It is a combination of many styles and I really like it!

This is the view coming in from the front door.

These views are from the dining room.
Please notice the floor, it is painted cement with a throw rug. The paint is tan and blue in kind of a swirl design, the hubster did it and it is AWESOME!!

These pics are taken from our bedroom.
Do you love this couch?! I got it at the DI for $45. It used to be in the Ogden Temple, they are remodeling right now so there are a few pieces at the store. I saw it and knew it had to be in my living room! Total love at first sight!


My Family Wall.

Here are a few different views.(Please ignore the dust under the fireplace, we are still using it occasionally so I haven't spring cleaned it yet, ewwww!)

I hope you have enjoyed your visit as much as I have enjoyed having you!
Please come back soon!

Until later,

Fun Friday finds...

I am still on a white kick and the first things I found weren't from a thrift shop but I still think I got a pretty good deal on them. I found these little lovelys at the Quilted Bear and I was really suprised at how reasonable the cost was plus, they are perfect for my kitchen. I came so close to buying some plain ones at Shopko about a week ago I am so happy somethng told me to wait so with that introduction here are my new canisters!
Aren't they perfect?! I really just could not pass them up, I truly believe they were made just for me and they only cost about $16.00, not to bad for the amount of happiness they give me!

Now on to this little darling, he came in a little grab bag that was about $1.99 for the entire bag so he was actually about $.25 and he is so dang cute!
He is a tiny little creamer!
What do you think? Isn't he just the cutest little guy?

And finally for my clothing piece, this skirt will work with so many other pieces in my closet and I didn't have a black skirt so it is perfect. I got it at Savers for $3.99 and it is in perfect condition!
Not the greatest pic of me but if you look from the waist down its okay! LOL!

So I hope you enjoyed looking at my treasures today. Have a fantastic weekend!

Until later,

Say hello to my little Bunny...

I am entering this in the DIY Project party at the DIY ClubSo my little Chicky was feeling a bit lonely so I decided to make him a bunny sister and I couldn't be happier with the way she turned out!

I started with this
Scrap paper, pretty pins, Krylon Ballet Slipper Pink spray paint, styrofoam, and a flower paper punch.

Here are some during pictures
I carved the ears, arms and feet out of a styrofoam tree and a styrofoam ball.

Then I pinned her together and painted her pink.
Then I punched tons of flowers!

This is the final result.
Isn't she cute?!

Here is a close-up of her little face, so sweet!

A side view so you can see her tail.

Here are a couple other views

And here she is with her older brother Chicky!

Thanks for coming to visit my new addition, I will be linking to Patches of Pink Easter Challenge, Strut Your Stuff Saturday, OMTWI hosted by At Second Street. I am also linking to Craft-O-Maniac.

Until later,
