Fabulous Finds: Bedroom Furniture

I have to admit I never thought I would enjoy going to antique stores or garage sales. Looking through other people’s junk while growing up had no appeal to me whatsoever. Then I became an adult, and started paying my own bills. Like magic, all of the sudden other people’s junk (at much cheaper prices) became very appealing! And to think that I could add some new paint, or fabric to a piece making it my own…why didn’t I realize this before!? This took my love of crafting and shopping to a whole new level.

My bedroom is one of my favorite rooms, and that is because some of my best antique store/garage sale finds are located there. It brings a smile to my face remembering how excited I was when I found these pieces, and then gushing over how perfect they were with my mom, over and over again. Ah, memories!

I wish I had before and after pictures of these fabulous finds to show you. At the time, I didn’t know they would be very important to have for my future blog. Regardless, they are still fun to share.

A Floral Holiday

Spring Floral Arrangement

Did you know that today is national Floral Design Day!? Me either, but what a fun “holiday” to celebrate! I thought this would be a good opportunity to get into the spring spirit.

My mom loves putting together floral arrangements, so I figured this would be a nice and easy project we could do together. We went to Michael’s and picked up a cute vase and some flower stems that screamed spring. Then we trimmed the stems and put the flowers in the vase. It ended up being a smaller project than what I initially envisioned, but sometimes those can be the best ones.  Now, I have a beautiful floral arrangement to help me visualize springtime!
