Hello Blogland!! Happy Superbowl Sunday and GO RAVENS!! Ok that is about as “sporty” as I get!!! The hubster is having some guy friends over for the game. I’ll just hang out in the Craft Palace and do my thing!
I know it’s been a week since I last posted. how time flies when you’re NOT having fun. I came down with the intestinal bug that has been going around. (I swear I’m a cootie magnet!) I was trying to keep up reading everyone’s blogs when conscience. Commenting using the tablet is a pain, though. I’m a crummy typist on a real keyboard, much less those touchy ones. Plus the autocorrect feature makes me NUTS!!
I felt better Friday so I’ve spent the last two days putting the hall bathroom back together. To refresh y’all memories, a couple of weeks ago I got a wild hair and decided to redecorate the bathroom using a vintage sheet I had thrifted as inspiration. The walls were already a Granny Apple green but everything else was black and country primitive. I wanted something more reflective of my aesthetic (snerk-as if I have one) today.
It’s like a completely different bathroom. So much brighter and FUN!! The hubster really likes it, too. And it cost me ZERO dollars to do. I had the sheet and the white paint, and I accessorized by shopping (ok decluttering) the Craft Palace and guest room, plus rooted in my yard sale treasures hoard in the dungeon. Here’s some more pix:
I call this my Krista-inspired room because the colors remind me of her! This was truly Design-on-a-Dime. I just slapped white paint on anything that was black (including the light over the sink) and repurposed stuff I had. Next up is a tweaking on the Master Bedroom.
My sartorial choices last week were better left unseen-LOLOLOLOL. I do however have a pix of me today in my church-wear. A few weeks ago I discovered a nifty little vintage store called “Retropolitan” in the small town nearby. It has the closest grocery store. I was heading there but took a different route than normal because I wanted to ogle the hoarder house that had caught fire. I discovered this shop on the way. Lot’s of CUTE stuff and reasonable. (I am SO investing in some vintage togs when the weight stabilizes) she also carries some clothes consignment. I got the cardigan for a very reasonable $10.

Here’s a picture of the blingy. Made the earrings from a pair of buttons.
Well I’m off to help the hubster get the party stuff together. He’s done most of the cooking (chili and wings) i do the organizing!
