Royal Wedding

I have not been blogging lately but trust me, it is NOT because I'm doing nothing.  :)  I am still settling into my new home, I would say 90% of the boxes are unpacked and now I need rest a bit before I start making over my house room by room. 

I have not been that caught up in watching the Royal Wedding these past few weeks but today I have tried to see the highlights.  I do love Kate Middleton's dress.  It is just perfect.
This is Princess Grace Kelley on her Wedding Day. 
Her dress also has the lacy long sleeves.

Happy Friday to All!

Wish List from ESTY

From time to time I look around ESTY and see what kinds of great things are out there.  I really enjoy vintage items and all the handmade things on this site.  So here are a few of my picks.

I like the very simple lines and vintage look to it all.

I might be one of the few bloggers out there that doesn't have one of these bad boys yet but I still hope to one day.  I really like the color of this fan.  This one could be mine for only $38.00.

I like this one for two reasons:
1.  It is a Van Halen Record.
2. What a cool looking bowl.

I am one who still has a home to have something pretty hanging on my wall would be so nice.  I really like the simple look of the old vintage black phones.

Seeing these one ESTY just made me smile.  My Grandma has sold AVON for over 50 years now.  She has this brush and mirror to go with it in her bathroom.  As a little girl, when I stayed at her house, I used her brush just like this one to comb my hair.  Those fond memories make me smile.

Happy Monday to you!

Happy April Fools Day

Make-up Magnet Board

I saw this idea in blog land and thought....THAT IS SO SMART! 
I found it over at Laura Thoughts

She starts with a basket of make-up.
(Most of us have our make-up in a basket, drawer, or bag too)

She found an old picture at the Salvation Army.

She made a few changes to the  picture & frame wouldn't you say?
After painting the frame, she picked up some metal from the hardware store and fit it inside the frame. To make it pretty, she used spray adhesive to attach some fabric to the metal.

Added some magnets to the back of her makeup.

She also added containers to store her brushes.

Now, don't you wish you had thought of this too!  It is very clever and cute.
For all the details, go check out her blog.
I'm sure Laura will love that you stopped by.
