The Mr and Ana White

The Mr. has been in a woodworking mood. Especially after I introduced him to the Ana White website.
I think she is his new fan in him. I don’t mind…look at what he has built…



Next on his agenda is a stepstool and maybe, bunkbeds for the kiddos!
Thank You Ana!
*You can click over to the Ana White website and download the plans. Please take some time to post your picture of your project and Thank her!

H to the obby to the L obby!

I am pretty sure I screamed at my desk and my co-workers seem to be immune to that since I normally scream at something at my computer anyways. J

 Hobby Lobby is comming to Roseville, Ca!

My plan is this…I am going to tell my Husband we need to go to Roseville to visit Denios, (Roseville) and  then say “Oh my Goodness, is that a Hobby Lobby, we need to go in, I didn’t know Roseville was getting one”! That’s my plan and I am sticking with it.

Hope the Mr. doesn’t read my blog. Even if he did he would most likely forget about it since Roseville is also home to the “Best Fry’s Electronics Store Evah” according to the Mr.

Ready or not Hobby Lobby, here I come! Fall d├ęcor is calling my name!

*Opening day soon to be announced!

Starburst/Sunburst Mirror

I am late on the Wall Starburst/Sunburst wagon.

Yeah, they are so last year right? Well, I am usually a day late and a dollar short.

Welcome to my World.

Im loving these!



Don't tell my Husband...he would die if I bought another "Mirror".  These do not fit in my budget, but they sure are pretty!

Thrifty Finds

I am linking up with the wonderful Rhoda from Southern Hospitality. It is the Labor Day Thrify Treasures Day! Please be sure to visit Rhodas blog and give her some love!


I have a love for thrifting and decorating with my finds, even my Hubby who was hated to accompany before is now along for the ride finding his own deals! We are turning into a Thrifty Family…


Here is the latest…this was a Craigslist find. $30.00, not to bad for this mirror, it’s a Turner Mirror. I haven’t been able to find this particular one online, but that’s ok. I love her! Maybe you all can help me out. She is quite heavy, im not sure where I am going to put her as we already have a huge mirror in the living room and 2 mirrors waiting to be painted...but ill find her a home. 


Next up is this plate from Goodwill…This was new in the box, never used and is from the now defunct Gottchalks…oh how I miss you Gottchalks. I bought it for 1.99, it’s a “You are Special Today Plate”. It’s a take on the Waechtersbach Plate. I like this particular one because its white and gold. I cant wait to use it for my 9 year old Daughter.


I found this lovely little wine/champagne holder at the Roseville, Ca, Denios Farmers Market. She was 15.00 not so much a deal bu the Hubby said to get her. The seller did not want to go down in price and was packing up his wares.  She is silver plated but look at her, I love her patina.


That’s it for today; I hope you enjoyed my little finds! Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. I hope to see you here again.
