Thrifty Tuesday....Ceiling Medallion Wreath

Thrifty Tuesday is when I post something thrifty that I came up, saw on-line OR was inspired by (as is this case)...

Saw this FAB wreath on line and KNEW I wanted to re-create it....It sat on my desktop for ages...

One day while thrifting I found this baby....I paid.59....I KNOW it's plainer than the inspiration pic BUT you can't look the thrift horse in the mouth....

I simply stuck a suction cup to the window....Added some thin teal ribbon....

and hung....

I think it makes a pretty sweet lil wreath and addition to my kitchen window....what have YOU thrifted lately?!?!

WELCOME Spring and Easter

Is it spring??!?!? Because as I type this it's snowing outside....The calendar said it's spring....

 Come on in....

Bunny "mount" on the Gallery Wall

Notice any DIFFERENCE between these two pics?!?!!

These are just some components I threw the "grass" last fall at the thrift for like .69 KNOWING it'd be perfect for spring!! I added the bunny, topped with a "cloche" (just a super large vase turned upside down) and a vintage egg cup

For the buffet I wanted something natural BUT also wanted to incorporate the colorful aspects of spring into the decor.....

 SO here's what I came up with...I was pretty happy with the a blogger you KNOW no decor project is ever "COMPLETE"...if you're anything like me you're always tweaking until the 11th hour!!

I felt like the burlap was a lil too I grabbed a few of my MANY doilies and just kinda sprinkled them about....

Warmed it up don't you think?!?!?! So tell me - yay or nay to the doilies? It still looks good and not like your grandma's house - right?!?!

I LOVE the way the china hutch turned out for spring....GOOD mix of colors and neutrals!! 

My bunny is delivering a Tiffany box....

A day in the life....

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

On the mend FINALLY - feeling good!! 

Felt SO GOOD I even went a got a few groceries....after I placed these under ripe pears on the window ledge I thought "How cute...BLUE sky in the background, fabby McFab Vintage jeep, pears lined up like lil soldiers and cute cafe curtains framing it all - How picturesque" and then I said to myself - self, take a picture...and then i was like forget it...and then i said I've had this entire conversation in my head just now, so TAKE THE DANG picture! LOL! Do you ever do that?!?!

A new body lotion I spotted in my magazine that I wanna try - seems dreamy, is a good price SO I snapped the pic so the nxt time I am at Wal-Mart I can just look at the pic and find it easily (just so ya know I started typing all the info in my notes when I realized the visual would be SO MUCH easier)

I NEVER posted my St. Patty's decor :( Time just got away from me this month! SO goodbye St.Patty's....

 AND HOLA Easter! This cabinet has proved a HUGE decorating challenge for me...for the past 5 months...BUT I LOVE the way the easter look came together!

Back to taking pics for WIWW

Gorg day here today (like 36 - LOL - gorg right?!?!) SO I went and vaccumed the car, washed it and came home and cleaned the windows and inside....

Took the dog for a nice long walk so now we're just chillin! What have YOU been up to?!?!

A Day in the life....

Please tell me someone else out there is feeling the "winter blahs"!?!?!?! I haven't blogged regularly as of late because I've been in a bit of a funk...I'm attributing it to the weather....the winter blahs that just won't go away!! Last year at this time we were sportin flip flops and t-shirts here in the midwest with temps in the balmy 80's!! Anywho, here's what I've been up to this past week!!!

 Celebrated my dad's birthday!! Our usual spot Moy Lee's in the City....HAPPY Birthday Dad!!

Went in and did my placement testing for school - that's right y'all momma's going back to college...I'd day it's time to finish and get a degree - don't you agree??!?! Now in full disclosure, it was big and scary looking (it's been 17 years since I've been in college - HOLY COW - where does time go!?!?!?) and a tad bit akward BUT it was SUCH a feeling of accomplishment once I finished my tests...a lil discouraging to be in the elementary algebra category (I did not know there was a study guide on line or else I would've studied before I went!!). In the next week or so I will be registering - WOOT WOOT!

SUPA low of the week...see that pretty pearl like spot on the kidney in the right of the picture? Yeah, that's a 1cm kidney stone...BOO....I had ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) prodecure on Tuesday and I am almost feeling back to normal...I was put under anesthesia (which is SO SCARY to me and I hate)

Some home made chicken noodle soup 
 My SUPA FAB sis drove 3 hours EACH WAY out to me to take me in for my procedure, wait and bring me back home....thank you Steph for re-arranging your entire day to be there for me - it meant more than you will EVER KNOW! Love ya!

A self portrait the day of the procedure....OBVIOUSLY before the procedure I blogged about this here.....FAB MK purse....incredible enough the universe answered my call.....

THIS gorg bag arrived on my doorstep the day after my "procedure" (hence the AWFUL pic)...THANK YOU bag fairy - what an awesome surprise ;)

Colorful fun flowers 

And pretty yellows brightened up my day

Friday night "window shopping" at Target...FAB wedges

Chic silver and white vases

And a FAB pop of yellow! 

Ended the week with a pedi and reflexology massage....
What did YOU do this week?!?!?
