Try It Thursday...Headband Tower...Saw it Pinned it DID IT!!

Today's Try It Thursday post is something that has been AL OVER Pinterest....and I FINALLY Did it!!

I took an oatmeal container (you will need the larger size so the headband stays put)

and as I began to spray paint it...
 I noticed I could just pull the sticker peeled off really easy...and left me with a natural cardboard tube...

I grabbed a silver taper holder and used some glue around the ring....placed the canister on the center (and then I added bags of decorative stones inside to give it some weight)

After letting it set for a few hours, I filled the inside with my brushes and bump-its (I've never used them but who knows, they may come in handy some day!!)

and placed all my fancy headbands (in color order) on the canister - tucked it in the linen closet and VIOLA!!

Simple, CHEAP and effective! My favey kinda project!!

Thrifty Tuesday....Make up organizer

WELCOME to thrifty tuesday!! Y'all are in on my dirty lil secret - my name is Janae and I LOVE to thrift! I would choose the thrift over the mall ANYDAY(it's all about the thrill of the hunt at the thrift - what will be found there? How much digging will I have to do? What great invention will I come up with based on a thrifted find?!?!).  It wasn't always so my friends - you see, back when I was younger and thrifted my sis and I would go together.....we had a code - we were so creative - we called it the "TS"...we went there to get designer clothes and CHEAP-O prices (and then we would tell our friends what store it was REALLY from - ie Express, Gap, Marshall Fields, etc - OR the best one was "it's from a local boutique" LOL!!!). These days I PROUDLY speak of my thrifty finds because as Eric Clapton sings "It's in the way that you use it...." If you are dressed FAB AND on a budget, why not shout from the rooftops?!?!?! If ya look like a hobo, well that's another story!! Ok, on with the show...

I found this dirty lil baby at the salvation army for .59....I KNEW upon first glance this old pen / desk organizer would be PERFECT for my eyeshadows and brushes!

With it's lil swivel drawers.....and divided compartments....

 oooh, aahhhh, doesn't it look FAB?!?!? and organized?!?! and neat?!?! 

All the brushed go on one side, the eye pencils on the other, eyeshadow rounds in the top along with brush cleaner....

Wouldn't you agree - IT'S IN THE WAY THAT YOU USE IT?!?!?!

What have you thrifted lately that has changed YOUR Life?!?!?

A day in the life...

A day in the life are pics from my iphone for the week.....

Started decorating for V-Day

Fruit cup @ Tweet

More V-day decor (Love makes the world go round)

When I took the tree down - this lil corner was SO SAD...So I added this fab 'kitchen' table (which come spring will be featured at the flea) but for now it fills that lil empty corner of my home!! 

Working on getting organized in the New Year (I will feature a post on what I have done to get a lil more organized so far)

Patiently waiting on summer to arrive

Prepping Saturday breakfast (no breakfast is complete without breakfast meat - bacon is MY personal preference)

Nice lil breakfast with my babies...
What did you do this week?!?!

What I'm listening to....

Here's what I've downloaded on itunes this week....

(maria was from last week!! )

 PERFECT for the new year!! New year - it's my time, it's my life, I can do what I like....
What's your current favey song?!?!?!

SHUT The Front Door Friday

Now that all the Christmas is down, the next holiday to decorate for is Valentine's Day (side note: all the streets and houses look dull now with no holiday lights and trees - insert sad face here). Living in the Midwest it's a bit of a challenge to decorate the porch...this is all I have so far (if you've seen any great Valentine's porch ideas, please point me in the direction)...

Won't you come in?

I made this chalkboard globe for a flea market last fall - while it didn't sell that time, I've had fun decorating with it...."L♡ve Makes The World Go Round"

Mirrored XO in the bathroom

I was kinda stumped what to put in here....I knew I wanted to use the antlers, and the balls and well pearls are ALWAYS a classic!! I added the "xoxo plaque and the silver heart boxes"

Got these silver hearts a few years ago at HobLob's after Christmas sale....added ribbon....

and hung from the kitchen light (not a super great pic but you get the idea)

Have you started decorating for Valentine's Day?!?!?!
