A Few Things I have Discovered…..

I have discovered a few things… recently. Like, vinegar really will clean hard water spots off a glass shower door. Lemons will take the same spots off the shower turner ony thing… You should prolly have 2 ironing boards with 2 irons if you want to iron the Mr.’s good shirts without them sticking to the ironing board (or cover the ironing board while using iron on adhesive. *light dawns) I’ve also discovered that when moving to a new town with small children…. you should probably figure out when the closest hospital is and how to get there. That the sound of a 4 yr old face hitting the coffee table makes a horrid sound… That “they” don’t treat broken noses any more….

No more hard water spots!

Oops…. spill over from adhesive 

Looks much better today…

Any thing y’all have discovered lately?

Woo Hoo, it’s Monday and the weekend wrap…

Monday, Monday… What can be said about Mondays? It’s the second day of the week,  it’s the first day of the work week…. it comes from the Old English meaning, Moon day. There ya go…. enough said about Monday!!
This weekend just flew by….  I got more pictures hung… (straight), got a start on the J-boys room, Put the playroom together, Partied with the neighbors, So today I get to clean house, do the laundry and maybe elk out some time on the J-boys new bedspread…. (fingers crossed),  go to the gym?? There are never enough hours in the day.

The J-boys room is coming together!! Thank God for pinterest!! I would have never thought to iron stuff on the wall…. But peoples it could not be easier!!  Here’s what I did…

Printed out J-boys name, same size as the paper.
Cut it out …. pinned to to my fabric
Ironed on the adhesive
Cut out the letters,
Laid it out on the wall….. ironed away.
Easy Peasy…. all in about a hour!! And yes I did check it peels right off and doesn’t hurt the walls!! (which in a rental is crucial!) And I love how it brings color to his room.

Before
Printer letters cut out
Pinned to fabric with adhesive on ironed on
After
See straight and even

Playroom!

So it’s true

Another man’s woman’s trash (and can you say Hoarder?) is another man’s woman’s treasure.. That is such a true statement. The Craigslist ad read something like… Tons of free stuff, probably some rubbish, but lots of free linens, clothes, shoes and other stuff. Since I started sewing I’m always looking for material and I love vintage anything, So I throw the boyz into the truck and off we go. First let me say….. Euuuuwwww…. but WOW, the stuff I did dig through one room, but not real deep, (Scary) and wound up with tons of material (with the tag still pinned on) some pretty cool little hankies, a couple of tables that I’m going to try to save, they may be too far gone but I’m gonna try. And the cutest little rocking chair, doll sized but I have a thought for it…. So we will see.

                                       
On to the current project The Little Boyz Bathroom…….
I decided on the colors… all bright greens, blues, yellows, orange and red. I started out with some bathroom printables. They are so cute and will hopefully remind my boyz what it is they are supposed to be doing in there!! HA HA HA…. yes I know, but you have heard of the power of positive thinking…. Right, Right! So on to the pictures, free frames from the hoarder house, and the printables and I have a good start, now to make the shower curtain. and  voila… little boyz bathroom! Then on to the J-Boys room…. same colors different effect, (I hope).
                           

Helllllllloooooo…… I’m bacccckkkkkkk

Well hello blogger world… I’m Back!! Miss me?? I missed y’all….

Shenandoah Mountains

Life sure changes in a blink of an eye. Since I was last here, Our Little Guy has gone home to Momma, and doing as well as expected. I keep tabs! 😉 We finalized the adoption on our Boyz… and we left the semi- wilds of central Texas for the historic and bustling Northern Virginia. So now I’m busy unpacking… (yuck) decorating a new house.. (Yeah) and chasing 3 active young boys around a new town. Up for some new adventures, decorating and crafting  on and around the East Coast?? I know I am…. I hope y’all will come along
