Crazy Busy Week...Month

Yikes-o.   We have such a busy rest of the month, with more than 2 Thanksgiving feasts coming up- alot of traveling and school stuff and Etsy shop stuff, and decorating stufff and painting stuff, and a parade to attend....whew!  I am tired just thinking of everything we have to do! And I can't believe the month is already half done!  More to come on that all though later.

So, how was your weekend?  My girls weekend was fun- we had lots of laughing and drinks.  Have you ever played the game Apples to Apples or "Things"?  Funny.  I don't think we play them quite exactly like others would, but we laugh so hard, we cry.  Lots-o fun!  ;) 

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, and then Christmas right after that, I am trying to get every odd end thing finished up and ready for the holidays.  Like, where are we going to put the tree this year?  This is always an issue, since I love stuff and have alot of stuff.  This year though, when re-arranging furniture a few months back, I made sure to think about this and have a great spot for it.  Tree spot- check.  I also want to finish finishing my couple months long job of painting my kitchen cabinets before Christmas.  We always have Christmas brunch here with my parents and Grandparents and would like that finished.  Will it be done though?  I doubt it.  I know they won't mind.  They probably won't even notice that half are painted and half aren't.  Oh well. 

My Grandma garbage picked me an adorable table that is on my "to paint" list.  I will be sure to post before and after pics of it when I get around to that!  I really want to get that finished this week.  Has anyone ever spray painted an entire table without priming it frst?  If so, let me know how it turned out and if I have to sand it first.

Ok...that's all for today.  I will leave you with some eye candy odds and ends of some of my fav pics on the web!

Have a great day!

Probably my fav bathroom of all time!

Makes me want to paint my rooms black.

Makes me want to paint my rooms white.

Ans totally wants me to paint my rooms aqua!


Do you see my problems???


  1. lol, I see your problem and I have to say that I totally understand! I am so glad that you had a great weekend! Love those games and yes, they are a little more fun when drinks are involved! :) I have painted a table without primer, I did sand though a bit before. It turned out fine just depends on what color you are painting over with what color. :)

  2. glad you have more than one room in your house, that way you can paint them all the colors you wish! :) I'm soooo excited about my ruffle pillow!!! I'm really enjoying my other pillow and lavender sachets you sent my way a few weeks ago. I wanted to leave you happy feedback on etsy, but there was no place to do it (never seen that happen before). Anyway, I absolutely adore your pretty pillows and thank you SO much!
