I should be...

I should be working on this...

But instead I am doing this...

I have more colors and mustache shapes to cut out.  I'm avoiding rummaging through the mounds of stuff for the yard sale tomorrow.  I HATE yard sales.  I hate having to lug all your junk outside.  Then have strangers go through it, decide it's not worth the asking price and try to low ball you.  I also hate the slllooooowowwwww drive by.  They look over your stuff while staying seated in their car, decide it's junk and drive off.  Ha.  I do it too...so I totally know what they are thinking...it's just a little disheartening having to endure it.  So hopefully, we sell some stuff and I can purchase some new bedroom decor out of it...tee hee.

I also framed the video game alphabet character sheet for the boys bathroom.  Turned out cute.

Ok, off to be productive.

Gaga for 99 cents!!!

Born This Way [+Digital Booklet]

You can get Lady Gaga's new Album for just 99 cents!!!  Go to Amazon and buy it now!!!  I just did : )


Ok, I just wrote a not so positive blog about some people and decided not to post it.  I will not let others bring me down...enough about that : )

Ok, yesterday I had to go spend over $300 on a portable ac unit.  It saddens me to no end on having to waste/make an investment into a piece of plastic when I would have rather bought soooooooo many other things.  But tis life.  So the jest on the ac unit.  We have a pretty big house, but one central air unit.  When my house was built they did not zone levels as they do now.  We looked into installing another unit...hehehehehahahahahaha. $$$$  Ummmm...no.  So instead we bought a portable ac unit.  I must say it works AWESOME!!!  I'm hoping it will lower our energy bill since we should be able to lower the ac at night.  The upstairs has a noticeable temperature change in the summer.  So hopefully, the little ac unit will help out.  It's actually kinda cool that you can move it around and it's not as noticeable as a window unit.  I've talked with neighbors and apparently it's a big topic for conversation.  None of these houses have 2 units and with 3,000 square feet of space, they should.  So as I drove off from lowes a part of me was happy and another part was sad for buying it.

I stopped by a peddlers mall yesterday and wanted to share my finds.  Granted I did not buy anything.  I am on a new kick that I will not purchase anything unless I have a home for it.  I saw some cute stuff...but no home for them so they stayed.

If my garage was not in the state it is I would have scooped these up!!! 

This bedroom suit would be awesome painted!!!

 Ok, I LOVE anything over-sized.  I almost bought these scissors...and kinda wished I had for only 5 bucks.  I could have put them in our craft room downstairs.

 I love anything vintage.

 Totally crushing on milk glass right now...

 I had to laugh because we had chairs VERY similar to these in the 80's.

 I LOVEDDDDDDD this and almost bought it.

 This was a cool piece too.

 I smiled.

 I love old cans...but I did not want to buy them.  I'm not that big of a hoarder yet.

 My childhood...

 I just had to snap a picture of this...I'm sure someone else saw this and thought it would go perfectly in their house...me...not so much...

Doesn't everyone have or need a square dancing dress?  This reminds me of my old elementary teacher...she made us square dance for any occasion she could think of.
 Thank GOD for modern wash machines.

 Ok, I almost bought this mirror and am debating on going back.  I thought it would look AWESOME painted high gloss white and it was only $12!!!  But, I will think about it...like I said...I couldn't come up with the perfect home for it.
 I LOVED these little tables...perfect for my bedroom.  I was leaning towards the pedestal table.  Painted and nestled between my two king Louis chairs...perfect!

I thought these little guys would make fun bookends painted high gloss something or another...hehehe.

 I LOVED this vase...but no home...so it stayed.

Ok, after looking over my finds...I wish I had bought some of them...maybe this weekend we will go back...Hummmmmm...have a fabulous day guys!!!

Super excited!!!

Ok, anyone who knows me, knows I love having people over.  Well, usually I have a BBQ to start summer off.  Kinda a farewell to the school year.  The kids run around like crazy playing inside and out and the adults talk, eat and play board games.  Well, I have my theme for this year...MUSTACHES!!!  I love all the vintage themes going around and I stumbled upon some cute items for my party.  I LOVE etsy, but am beyond cheap and crafty and usually make everything myself.  I just use etsy for ideas...sorry guys.  So here are some of my treasured finds!!!

My friend Sarah and I can totally whip these out in no time.  Just something fun for us to do and have at the BBQ. 

Then I stumbled upon the game of all games...

Laaaaaa...and the clouds parted...and angels sang.  I love me some smokey and this will be the finishing touch to a perfect BBQ!!!  Hehehehehhahahahahaa...I can't wait!!!

Have a great day guys!!!
