Back from Montana

We've spent the past week in Montana, and I miss it already. I have family up there and it was so nice to spend time with them, its been twelve years since I was there. We went on a couple of hikes into the Bitterroot Mountains, we saw a couple of waterfalls and even a ghost town! I also browsed a few antique stores while we were there, scoring some old glass bottles for my little collection.

Recently Around our Humble Abode

Not sure if I mentioned it in an earlier post or not but we painted Celeste's room purple. She said it's all shes ever wanted in her whole life!

And I also made a butterfly mobile for her room, love how cute it turned out!

And lastly, a recent layout

Until next time-XO

Painted Ceiling

I've been thinking a lot about what I can do to spruce up my mid century kitchen. The cabinets have seen their day, unfortunately I cannot afford an upgrade at the moment. I know I am going to paint one whole wall with chalkboard paint because I've always wanted one. What I have been seeing a lot of lately is painted ceilings. I think this would work well in my kitchen because the cabinets are white and the tile floor is busy and blue. Hmmmm?

We're Thinking Butterfly

Celeste's sixth birthday is two months away, so I want to start planning something super cute for her. We were thinking butterflies... since we have a house and a backyard now I thought it would be nice to have a backyard BBQ. We usually go to a park, but having it at home leaves more room for food and decorating options! Oh, and did I mention my budget is minimal? Heres some cute things I found on Etsy

Welcome, Little One

My sister has welcomed her second daughter to the world yesterday, and I just wanted to share a picture of my precious niece.

Celeste had a "take your parent to school" day on Friday. She was so super excited to have me there. Only four parents from her class were there, so all the kids were super excited too, vying for my attention constantly. I painted her room purple today, a very pale lavendar she picked out. I will post a picture when all her furniture is back in place. -XO

Love the Color

I am so happy with how this one turned out! I just love the pop of color, and it is definetly inspirational to have such a fun piece in my creative space. Next up, staining the roll top desk... but for now the other projects we have undertaken at our humble abode are grass seed in the back yard, staining the patio set we purchased at a garage sale (don't worry, I'll post the before and afters!), painting our chalkboard wall in the kitchen, painting Celeste's room and hanging the shelves in the laundry room so I can finally post those pics! Am I making you tired yet? I am making myself tired... -XO
