My favorite Pins this week

It has been hectic around here and I wonder if I am able to keep this blog going. I will keep trying my best!
There have been many cute projects on Pinterest lately. It makes me motivated to get some of my projects done. I picked up an old bike at a yard sale a few weeks ago.

I am excited to get some turquoise paint on it! Here are some pretty bikes on Pinterest:

Bedroom changes

After thinking our master bedroom was close to finished, I had a major problem with my comforter from Pottery Barn. I followed the washing instructions on the tag, and it bled. It was now pink:(.
I loved this bedding. I was designing the bedroom around it! Pottery Barn is giving us our money back but they do not have that print in stock. Also, I really don’t think I want it, knowing it will be hard to wash. So, now I am back to square one.

Goodbye my favorite comforter!

Birthday!

It has been a pretty busy week here. Between homeschooling, ballet, baseball, and all of the everyday stuff, I haven’t had much time to do much else!
Last week was my sweet daughter’s seventh birthday. Wow, does time fly! She decided on a horse themed birthday and I went for it. I had fun coming up with some ideas on Pinterest.

I was a little disappointed in how the pictures turned out, but you get the idea. Most of these ideas can be found on Pinterest.

Some of my favorite things from the party were the jars with pink straws and the strawberry lemonade popcorn! Did you know you can make any koolaid flavored popcorn! Here is the recipe:

The cake was a double chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. My daughter likes plain and simple when it comes to her cakes. This cake was super easy!

What are some of your favorite party foods?

We had a wonderful weekend. We got to go behind the scenes at the Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville. I didn’t have any time to get any projects done around the house. Hopefully, I will find time this week!

I plan on doing this one in just a few days!

Pigs are pretty

I knew I loved this pig as soon as I spotted her.

It was just another trip to Goodwill. I haven’t been having the best luck at finding anything at this Goodwill, but this was there this time!

I like to make up stories behind things that I get at the thrift store. This one, I couldn’t help but think of a man who wanted to please his wife by making her a cutting board. They couldn’t afford the expensive retail version that she spotted in a catalog. So, off he went to his workshop.

She spent several days using this one, but noticed the shavings in her food. It just wasn’t made out of the same wood as that beautiful one she spotted. So, off to Goodwill it went. Scratches and all.

I was so excited, as I knew what stain I was going to put on her.

I had some Kona stain at home and knew it would be perfect. I rounded her edges and then, decided not to sand down those cutting marks. I like her just the way she is.

I think she looks so pretty on my hutch.

Have you found anything good at your Goodwill recently?
