I'm thinking this is a "MUST HAVE" for Mother's Day!

 Look  "cute" while getting exercise & pedals made for flip flops!

What a concept!  

Husband & Sweet daughter of mine...if you reading I've been a good mommy this year! :)

{Easter Garden Gathering....}

Easter Sunday we had our friends and family over for our annual Easter gathering & what a great time we had!

I made all the children a garden bucket each personalized with their name...

garden buckets included:

personalized garden journal
personalized ruler
gummy worms
2 packets of seeds
sunflower seeds
paper pots with 1 & 2 stamped on them
clothes pins to be used as plant markers 

the little little ones received a smaller bucket with a fuzzy duck, plastic garden sheers & shovel, worms, and a plastic potted flower pot

I set-up the Garden party around our old rusty to-mater! It set the tone!

All the ladies wore Easter hats...a few vintage a few new...

my sweet girl helped me make these paper laterns &  made the garden sign. 

my husband surprised me with these beautiful tulips on Easter morning...I love tulips!

a refreshing "mojito" was on the menu!

{and the "After" of Yet another Curbside Treasure!...}

Earlier this week I posted the "before" of my curbside treasure. 

 With a vision and a little elbow grease I turned it into a garden station!  

What I used: 
 lambs wool paint by SW
Ralph Lauren glaze
 black chalkboard paint
new casters from Walmart 
hooks form Hobby Lobby

I had everything except the casters....so, I spent a total of $6 and change!

excuse the messy writing! :) i need the chalkboard pens!

this is the little French wire basket w/ tiny terra-cotta pots I bought at Round Top a couple of weeks 

ago...aren't' they precious!  Perfect for succulents...

and below is what it looked like before!

Have a beautiful weekend!

{and her Bathroom...}

 I don't think I've ever posted my daughters bathroom.

I'm kinda proud of what I was able to design I must say! {big o cheesy grin}

Our old bathroom & house didn't have any storage space so, that was a 

MUST for the new addition!  I also, wanted to give it a girly feel since it for our lil princess.. 

 Here it is below & just to warn you this post is picture heavy!

Here is the only bathroom we had before the addition.

I can't really say "before and after" due to it is not 

the same space...
