Frugal Friday!

I am linking up to the ShabbyNest for the Frugal Friday Linky Party. I LOVE that blog, and totally copied Wendy on this idea! I found these little canisters at Goodwill yesterday for 1 buck a piece. Added some spray paint and numbers and...........

This is the finished product. I put them in my laundry room, and love how they look!

I also found these today on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

LOOOOOVE it. I think I spent a total of 2 something on all of them!

Show Us Where You Live- Kids Room

I have been so excited about this weeks Show Us Where You Live Party at KellysKorner because my girls room is my favorite room in my whole house! I still haven't figured out how to move the pictures around after I upload them, so they are not in order.

The first picture is looking out of their room. I eventually want to get a pink chandelier to hang in their entry.

Some fun artwork. My cute mom-in-law has been my Pottery Barn hookup over the years and it has been amazing! She also helped me paint this room. I really lucked out in the in- law area!

OK, so here is the room as you first walk in.

Below is looking to the right. My favorite company ever Vinylsilhouettes created the wall vinyl of my princesses -- Sisters, sisters, never were there ever such devoted sisters...

These are the pictures Vinylsilhouettes used.

This is their dresser top. Thank you Lisa/Pottery Barn! The only thing my mom-in-law didn't hook us up with is the cute owl I saw peaking at me at Goodwill the other day. I fell in love with him and had to bring him home. He was only 1 buck!

This is my favorite part of the room! I just smile with glee every time I walk in and see this! Welcome to my fairy wonderland! Those fairies are my actual babies! Is that not the most

A-W-E-S-O-M-E thing you have ever seen? Squeal!!!!!!!!!

This is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to any wall of mine!

Vinylsilhouettes made this fairy dream out of pictures I took and e-mailed them!

My two fairy princesses!

Theses are the pictures that were used!

Thanks for touring my girls room! I feel so happy when I walk in there, couldn't wait to share it with all of you!

Good deals, and my attempt to copy Kimba

I don't think a girl can have to many apothecary jars or cheese trays. I have tons, and whenever I see one, I have to snatch it up. My heart skipped a beat when I saw these at Goodwill yesterday. The fruit holder I got at Hobby Lobby in there 66% of section for around 13 bucks. I cut it out of the picture, but it has a cute rooster on the top. I got the little jar to add to my collection yesterday for 1 buck at Goodwill!

I spray painted the first cheese tray black and liked it, so the other one is in my back yard drying as I am writing this! These lovelies were 3 bucks a piece. The little white bowl .25, nest I already had.

When I saw Kimbas idea to use apothecary jars to plant succulents I knew I had to copy her. I copy her allot. I already had this jar, so I headed to Lowe's yesterday to buy some succulents. Succulents is a fun word!:) I wonder how often I need to water these succulents, and if Kimba leaves her lid on or off of her succulents!:)

Succulents, succulents, succulent -aren't they pretty!

shower curtain=valance

I got this amazing idea from Shannon and had already exhausted my Hobby Lobby budget for the week. ( they are having a 66% off sale on some amazing home decor right now! I got the wrought iron wall hanging above my window for 6 bucks!) I do not have much patience, and once I see a project I want to do, I have to do it now! So my little brain started ticking and this is what I came up with! Instead of expensive upholstery fabric, I used a shower curtain!
I cut it into strips

glued fringe to the bottom

and secured with upholstery tacks! Instant, no sew valance!

Magnet Board And Vases

I have been wanting to make a magnet board for some time, but didn't realize sheet metal was so pricey! Maybe I am looking in the wrong places? I asked Hubby if there ever happened to be any scraps around his work site (He is a bridge builder-Civil Engineer:) And he said sometimes. I think he was getting really tired of me asking him first thing when he got home if he found any of this precious metal! So, yesterday while browsing Good Will a light bulb went off when I saw this ugly tray for a buck!
A little white spray paint, and I have the perfect little magnet board for my laundry room!

I have seen these vases numerous times around blog land and wanted to give it a shot, so I picked these up at Good Will as well.

A little of hubby's twine was all it took to spruce these cheap vases up!

Show Us Where You Live

Last week was so fun, I just had to join the party at kellyskorner again! This Fridays room is the guest room.

Our home is only three bedrooms, so our guest room doubles as our office. This trusty couch pulls out into a bed. I framed a bunch of Amy Butler paper, and let hubby (the engineer) hang them for me.

This is my blogspot!:)

One of my favorite pictures.

There you have it, a tour through my cozy guestroom/office.

Be Clean!

I am linking this older post to Kelly Korner and her show us where you live party
I am linking this post to The Inspired Rooms procrastination party. My laundry room is FINALLY done, after much procrastination!
I have been working on my laundry room for some time now with tons of inspiration from two of my favorite blogs-Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick, and Shannon at Bless our Nest.

When hubby said, and I quote "Who decorates their laundry room?" I said "Sarah and Shannon do, that's who!" These ladies don't know this, but I have a feeling if we lived close to each other we would be the best of friends! I promise I am not a stalker, I just love their style!

I found these plates at Marshall's today for 2 bucks each! I have had these hooks for a while, but they were brown, so I did a little spray painting!

Here is my framed silhouette I got from my favorite place VinylSihouettes and my spray painted basket that now holds my dryer sheets!Some more of my cheap decor.

My 6 year old got me this candle holder for mothers day. I love it, and think it goes perfectly!

My loose change holder and other odds and ends. Hubby says my mossy rocks look like pickles.:)

The finished product. I am happy with it. Hubby is going to be so excited when he comes home! Tee, he, he!
