I'm Back!

Whew! I am so happy to be back on the blog! We had a very fun, but very tiring, end to our summer: a 7-day Disney cruise to Alaska (which I HIGHLY recommend--Disney does such a fabulous job!), a wedding in Chicago (one of my favorite "big" cities) and then, of course, school starting last week.

Have to share some pics from the cruise:

Kendall met all of the princesses and had the best time! It made my heart so happy to see her huge smile!

There was a basketball court on the top deck--how cool is that?

Kendall got her face painted in the "Oceaneer's Lab"...a great club for kids!

My adorable parents! I am so happy they joined  us!

Cale and Kent at one of the yummy dinners. The food was to die for! It was truly the best vacation I have ever been on. The Disney employees are incredible and there was something for everyone to do everyday. I loved it! Hopefully we can do another one in a few years...

When I got back from our trip, I went on a little thrifting frenzy since I had been without my creative outlet for a week! Here are some goodies I recently added to my etsy store:

I made this little pedestal bowl using a sturdy wooden candlestick and a wooden bowl. I painted it with Annie Sloan's "Emperor's Silk" and roughed it up just a bit.

This is a sweet little jewelry box in the same "Emperor's Red" paint.

I couldn't pass up the 80's fabulousness of this piece! I updated it with some "Scandinavian Pink" paint and it goes perfectly with the Laura Ashley-esque fabric lining.

Finally, I love this wooden bowl with a silver base. The bowl has been painted with one of my fave AS paints: "Provence".

Thanks so much for stopping by! Can't wait to share some larger pieces I am working on this week: a chair, a bedside table and my very first buffet/hutch! Happy Monday!
