Spring in the Cabinet

For those of you who visit often, I'm sure you've noticed my posting has slowed down.   Honestly, I was kind of obsessed there for awhile and I began losing the fun.  Since my health scare and Kailyn's arrival,   I've come to my senses,  (keep in mind, there are some who might debate that), but now I'm posting when I feel like it and the pressure's off and it is what it is which is, much better!  I'm taking care of Kailyn while Kate is in school which I love, doing things around the house, planning Kate's October wedding, (more on that later), and posting when I feel like it, much better for me!   I just realized Spring is almost over so I thought I'd better share my Spring decor before I put it away for summer!   Don't ask me why, but one of my first collections was carrots.  Kind of  weird when I think about it, but I  collected quite a few, even some blown glass Christmas "carrot" ornaments.   I like to pull them out with my bunnies for Spring.




I cross stitched this little pillow back in the day

Vintage Thingie....

Today I'm going to show you one of my favorite yard sale finds.  It's a little bit industrial, has wheels which I love and best of all, it was only $3.00!  That it's my favorite color of flaky green paint, just makes it that much better!  It's very narrow and has a wood top which was very light so I dry brushed it with a couple of different colors of paint and love the way it turned out.  I use it in my guest bath which is very small, narrow and serves as a pathway from the back entry  to the laundry room.  Since it is so narrow, this little "thing" fits perfectly against the wall and holds my old sewing machine drawers, (yardsale,$2.00) that I use as a magazine holder without hindering the flow between rooms.  So, good price, good size, interesting shape, great color, what more could I ask for!

PS.  I haven't posted any pics of Kailyn for a while, she's 9mos now and is trying to walk!  She's talking, er babbling up a storm, saying Mama, DaDa and of course the standard no no! Pretty exciting and scary at the same time!  You can't wait to see them grow but on the other hand, I want her to stay a baby just a little longer!  We are having so much fun with her, she's such a sweet, happy little girl.  I could go on and on, but won't, here's a few photos!  (whoops! got a little carried away)!!
