If you have never been to Pinterest you don't know what you are missing. I can't tell you how many favorites I had on my computer-every time I found a project I wanted to do or a picture I wanted to save. Like this washing detergent I am going to make tomorrow !(The how-to was found on the through Pinterest)

Now all I have to do is put them on my Pinterest board and I have them all stored. You can see what I mean right here (Sorry tried to link it but it didn't work)

Just be careful it is a little addicting !

I am home sick today-looking at lots of blogs and Fall decorations which I love. The problem with Fall is that Winter follows it (which I hate-oh yeah it's fine till Jan 1...ask me in March) for me that always takes away from the beauty of Fall...anyone else feel that way?

Hooks vs Towel Bars

Our towel bar broke in our bathroom a while ago (okay quite a while ago). I haven't replaced it because it was pretty useless except for putting a decorative towel set on.I really like the look of hooks-they seem much more practical (I have over the door hooks right now that I have been using) What is your thought hooks or towel bars? (The above photo is from My Own Style Blog-but I found it on Favoirte Paint Colors blog)

DIY Canvas Gifts

My daughter just got married and I made her a canvas with wood letters -this was my inspiration

I took a picture of the one I made...but can't find the picture. Anyway the hardest part was finding the wood letters, but between Michaels and Joanne Shop I found them. I had left over letters and was going to my niece's baby shower the day after the wedding (this all took place in Burlington, VT) so I made this canvas for her pirate themed nursery.

I put the letters in a zip lock bag with white paint and smooshed them around till they were covered. Then I went to her registry so I could see what little things to paint on the canvas-whale, compass, and sailboats. I just copied them from the nursery bedding. She sent me this picture of it hung up in the room.
I just saw one on a blog that had the words to "You are my sunshine song" (sorry I can't remember what blog it was)it was in her hallway on three canvases and it looked great ! Have a blessed day.

More Great Inspirations

How could I forget this beauty from Sarah Richardson ?

Or this great bedroom from Something's Gotta Give (from the blog Hooked On Houses)

Yeah-I think this is the direction I am going in !

Starting Over

Well I read blogs...I mean lots of them. I have started this blog and stopped several times. Well here I go again, this time I have my pins. Pinterest is where I spend a lot of time too. So my current thoughts are on my bedroom. We have been living with a pretty disgusting carpet for a LONG time due to our old westie Mac. She recently passed away at the ripe age of 16 and now we can put a new carpet in the bedroom-and paint-and get or make a headboard. I am ready for something in the blue grey family( I currently have a cafe au lait color on the wall)
Or maybe like this (From Benjamin Moore Paint color Silver Crest)

Or Something like this (From Cote De Texas)Okay I know the walls on this one are more like what I have now-but I love the colorccombination and the sconces on the old doors.
