Home Goods Love

So our little ole town finally got it's own Home Goods store. Yep I was in line to get into the store. It was crazy and fun all at the same time. Went with my best-friend, her daughter and my daughter (who was in town for the weekend). They were only allowing a few in as a few went out. It was all very civil. I'd never done a grand opening before. I got a few little things for me and a few things for the kiddos apartment. The best thing, I don't have to travel an hour + to get to the nearest Home Goods anymore. Just a few fun shots of what I got. Have a great week.

Sun, Glorious Sun

The sun has been shining and I couldn't resist a few sunshine pictures in the house. Made a few changes behind my kitchen sink. Enjoy and have a great week. Hugs~ Amanda

Like Jennifer Hudson "I am changing, gonna get my life together now..."

Wow! What a week. My hubby took some time off. That's a good and bad thing. Good because he got quite a few things done in the yard, bad because it gives him time to look around at all my unfinished projects. He hates unfinished projects. Personally I think he just hates projects. He's not a project guy. Well onto the good. He said the state of chaos in the house and the craft room was too much. Get it done or he'll take care of it. In hubby speak "it's all going to GoodWill when you walk out the door to work." So I've been busy, rearranging, another thing he dislikes, change. He's of the mindset you park your furniture and that's where it stays until you move out. I like change, I like to move things around. Somehow we've managed to co-exist in the same house for the last 22 years. Fortunately he puts up with me and occasionally helps me out. Here's just a few pictures of the changes going on right now. I'm not done. I still want to change up some things.
Made changes to my little shelf
Made changes in my big white cabinet
Changed out plate racks
Found a new to me lamp at my favorite thrift store. Paid $2 for the lamp and $21 for the lamp shade at Lowe's. I still came out ahead though. I rarely see lampshades that I like at the thrift store. So I save on the lamp and splurge on the shade. It gets really dusty where I live and being able to wash these shades at least once a year is important here. Of course I made changes to the living room when I moved everything back around.
I'd like to strip the top of this desk and stain it. Paint the bottom white and the chair white with a new seat cover. Like this sweet little desk over at Miss Mustard Seed's. I foresee a lot of projects for me during spring break. Good thing I'm not going anywhere. Hope your weekend is great.

Had a fabulous weekend visiting my kiddos and shopping Ikea and Home Goods. The sun is really shining today and I must get to work on several seriously neglected projects. Hope your weekend was awesome also.Photobucket
