Happenings Lately

I've been busy doing lots of little things lately that individually didn't really seem blog worthy, so I thought I'd do a quick wrap up.  If you follow me on instagram this is kind of a repeat.  

I found this play kitchen at Goodwill a while ago for $10 and couldn't pass it up.  I've always wanted to  DIY a play kitchen for my little one, kind of like the ones I did here.  However, when I found this one for such a steal I jumped on it.  It definitely needed some TLC and some scrubbing.  Those burners were disgusting, as well as the rest of it.  We've had a few beautiful days so I've actually already finished most of it.  Now I'm just letting it air out for a while in the garage and adding some finishing touches before I bring it inside.  I'm pretty much creating my dream kitchen on a smaller scale. :)   


Organization makes me happy.  This time of year I always get the itch to start getting things in order around my house.  Our junk drawer was one of those places that definitely needed some order.  I've organized it numerous times, but it never stays that way.  I found this two tier drawer organizer at Target for around $6.  Now that everything has a place, I'm hoping it will stay that way.


I could easily become a fabric hoarder.  The remnant table is especially dangerous.  It's just hard to keep on walking when you spy a pretty remnant for a few bucks.  That was the case with this fabric.  I knew it would work perfectly in our bedroom and I just loved the pattern.


Speaking of pillows, I finally finished this greek key bolster pillow for my mom's master bedroom.  The gray velvet was also a remnant and the greek key trim is from Hobby Lobby.  They have a few different colors and it's just so pretty for the price!  I love how Jennifer used it on these gorgeous pillows!  For some reason the zipper and ends really got me on this one.  Needless to say I'm glad it's finished.  We are actually almost finished with the room.  I just need to get over there and add the finishing touches and take some pictures.  


And one more thing, I linked up my nailhead door desk to Creating with the stars!  It's a fun competition held every year with lots of great talent and prizes.  I'd love for you to head over and check out my link.  It's number 39!  Every click counts, so I'd love your support! :)

I can't wait to see that kitchen and thanks for the CWTS reminder! I'll go click away. Thanks for the shout-out, friend! That trim is the best thing HL has added in a long time! :)

I just saw a play kitchen at a consignment store today and was tempted to buy it for the price but I already have one :( Love your bolster pillow!

We have a play kitchen like that too!
Love the pillows and I'm so jealous of your organized drawer. I still have to do that
