Can I make you a believer?


In shopping the Goodwill. 


Finally they are up.  {Check back here for when I started}

  • Two Frames: $10, 4.97each

  • Pillowcase: $5

  • Lil paint tube (on hand): but estimated at $1

Total for wall art and lil elbow grease: $16

And fyi, you don’t need fancy schmancy, here is what mine looks like underneath the backing…


Ducktape. Yep. It’s what I had on hand. And it worked.

I set a goal for 2011.  I want all the things in my house home to have a place.  I’m still sorting, organizing and decluttering.  But the best part is – after seeing how much *ish we don’t need/use and end up donating, I am spending less on the shenanigans! 


Gotta luv growing up.  What took so long? I have a ton of catching up to do…but I’m up for it.

U still here? GO, make something pretty!

Thanks for stopping by.

3 day weekends – RoCk mY SoCks!!!



I got this on Friday.

Took the photos Saturday morning.


And only now, the post. LATE.  The 3 day weekend threw me all off schedule.

Anyhoo.  I ordered one to give away.  I so tweeeet…

It’s Oyin Handmade Whipped Pudding.  Can be used for hair or skin.  I will tell you, it smells super chocolatey, you will want to smell it, a lot.

Tell me how you’d use it, in the comments below and you too can get some happy mail! I’ll pick using the thingy on Monday nite around 9p.

P.S. The customer service was lightening FAST, I received it in about 3-4 days.  Definitely a shocker as I have ordered from them in the past, always 10+ days for delivery.  I guess they got the memo…...

P.P.S. I ordered another somethin somethin too, that I’ve been complaining a lot about. 

P.P.P.S.  I actually ordered two of those somethin somethins…. so another giveaway soon.  If it ever gets here….yay for 2011!

Happy Valentine’s Day



We’re not so big on going out for Valentine’s Day ‘round here, but I got each of the kids a chocolate bar and the hubbs, well he’s got me.  But he’s outta town, so all other lonely hearts are welcome over for dinner.  (There will be lots of wine and whining)

Call for your reservation.

Here’s hoping your day of love is filled with extra gooey kisses.

2011 = Simplify


I never did define my resolutions, but what comes to mind, over and over is: Simplify .






Really, what else matters but the things and people you LOVE?

[I got my twists in a ponytail today in case anyone cares….]

Thanks for dropping by.
