The Vintage Pearl

So I just wanted to share with you one of my recent wins from a blog!!!
I won a gift card to The Vintage Pearl from The Bragging Mommy!

I was so excited!!! I got the jewelry I picked out in the mail yesterday.
Whatcha think? I am in LOVE!

Itty bitty Desk



I LOVE the way this project turned out.
Desk on Craigslist ( NASTY) $5
Hardware (expensive!) $6
Total investment (I already had the paint and stain) $11

Perfect for the kids computer in the kitchen!


I want it ALL

If you love yourself a giveaway (and seriously who doesn't?) 
Then head on over to LEELOU BLOGs.  She is giving away some seriously AWESOME stuff.
Including an IPOD TOUCH.

I Love her blog... did you notice it is where I get all my cute backgrounds?
So don't wait, GO ENTER!



So I have been a slacker to this blog.  And not because I haven't done any projects. I actually have quite a few under my belt!
Mainly because my camera has been out of commission.  As all would agree what good is a blog without pictures??

So my wonderful friend let me borrow
 her camera and here are pictures of my latest project.

I was in charge of centerpieces for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary and I chose to make a family block for all of the siblings to display on the tables.  Because the tables are round they all were double sided.  So this project took at least 30 hours. Probably because my hubby is the youngest of 10!  I think that they turned out great and everyone got to take home a centerpiece that they can use for Thanksgiving dinner.

I got the idea for these HERE!


Little bitty shelf

This little shelf needed some TLC when I purchased it from craigslist.
Not too shabby, eh?
