That was really it around here as I've been fighting off getting sick again and we were gone to a birthday party here all day yesterday. That wiped me smooth out. Seriously. That museum is awesome and a ton of fun but trying to keep up with 2 kids and dealing with a baby will make you need to take to your bed and sleep for 14 hours.
It all made me smile and made my day. There are moments that you feel like you have utterly failed as a parent and then there are moments like this. And these are the ones that make you feel like maybe - just maybe you didn't raise a serial killer but possible a contributing member of society; or better yet, a good, solid young man.
Today is Sunday and that means another Shop Your House day. I'm linked up with Kendall over at Finesse Your Nest again. I did not get the projects I "shopped" and found last week done because the weather has conspired against me and my spray paint as it has snowed again off and on all week. So instead I shopped again yesterday, this time in the basement, and uncovered a couple more treasures! Here goes:
I found these tin squares and painted the top and bottom one a red color that we had left over from when we painted the dining room. They were just sitting in our basement waiting on a home. The one in the middle is actually made of wood and I had snatched it up at a thrift store about 2 months ago. I didn't have a place to put it yet but I rearranged the living room and voila! a spot for it!
OK - also this black stand and green bamboo I confiscated from the dining room and moved it to this corner in the living room. I think it works better in here and I like the pop of green over in this corner.
Then I found this old mirror. I bought it several years ago at a thrift store and I've had it sitting in the basement ever since because I didn't know exactly where I wanted it to go. It is now living in the Dining Room. I want to do more old mirrors in here and this is the beginning.
Another shot of the mirror - just closer up and you can also see some of the Dining Room in the reflection.
That's it for me. Hope everyone has a good Valentines. Hug your peeps!
