...on the wall. Yes, the mirror that we found in our garage from the previous owners. It was neglected and beat up but I liked its curves so it avoided the dumpster. I cleaned it up a bit with an old rag and some vinegar and Matt made a fancy...
When I set out to make a mobile for the nursery, I didn't exactly set out with any real idea of what I wanted. Sure, I checked out a few DIY options online before heading out to the store, but in the end, I found my inspiration perusing my local Michael's Arts and Crafts store.
I came home with a flat flower hoop, some all-purpose acrylic, non-toxic craft paint, and nine random wood shapes. My general thought process was to suspend the random wood shapes from the hoop, and I went from there. So scientific, I know.
Yes, this post is a bit of a teaser, because I don't have true "after" shots yet. Yet! They're on their way...
Those who know me well know that I get ridiculously excited ridiculously easily. You can see a few pictures and read a little about that here, but it's not necessary. You just need to know that a good trip to Costco can send me over the edge. That gives you a pretty good idea, right? Well, I'm really excited about something right now.
I mentioned a while back that I had picked up a rug for the nursery. Well, technically... Matt picked it up. It was big and heavy and this pregnant chick wasn't about to break her back. It was a Costco bargain (be still my heart!) and it wasn't exactly what I had in mind for the room when I started the rug search.
If you came for that kind of pillow talk, sorry 'bout it.
I want to talk about actual pillows - of the decorative sort. Specifically, I want to talk about one that I fell in love with at Target last month. Feast your eyes on this gorgeous, red herringbone floor pillow. It was basically free. You'll see.
This is my first post this week because yes, I missed another Sunday Cookin' post. Oops. Maybe I should aim for every other Sunday instead of every Sunday. I did, in fact, cook. I just didn't take pictures and blog about it. Actually, I took one picture, since I thought the table looked festive and pretty.
I know it's November 30th, but I hung my favorite Christmas decoration. Obviously it's my favorite. It's the first. I haven't even taken out the Christmas bins from the attic yet. There will be more favorites to come.
