I also found an old cheese dome for under $3.
I love lamps! In fact, I have a real “thing” for lamps. Whenever I go to Goodwill I check the lamps. A few weeks ago I found this little beauty for $3.
I knew exactly what I was going to do with it as soon as I saw it! I bought some Jute rope, and got out my hot glue gun.
Have a great weekend!

I found an old wooden bird house in the basement a few days ago. Just a plain craft one from the Michael’s store that had been sitting on my craft shelf forever. I decided to dress it up a bit and use it on my porch. In case you haven’t noticed by now, my husband and I prefer Asian and tropical style decor. So I thought maybe a tropical looking birdhouse would go nicely.
First I primed it. It had a few splotches of red on it from one of my kids. He was going to paint it, but then lost interest.
Then some chocolate brown spray paint.
Next I thatched the roof with some bamboo pieces that I saved after having the blinds in my kitchen cut down to size. Then I wrapped it in twine. Sorry I didn’t get any photos of this…It was too hard to glue and snap pictures at the same time, especially with my sticky fingers. )
I painted the posts red and added a couple of yellow flowers for color.
A little taste of the tropics. )
Thanks for visiting!

Doesn’t everyone want to be pampered a little? Don’t we all want every room in our home to be a place we can relax and unwind in?
Up until recently my bathroom had been sorely overlooked. I mean, it looked OK…it was functional and nothing I was ashamed of, but I felt like it could be better. So I marched into the bathroom and put all the toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, brushes…you know, all the functional, everyday items into the closet (of course, that meant a little re-organizing).
I realized that I don’t have to spend a fortune to get a little luxury for my bathroom.
First, I looked through what I already owned. It’s amazing the things that sit in your house everyday, unnoticed and unused, isn’t it?
I found these:
Candles are great! They look good just about anywhere and they are cheap and easy to find.
