Just a little something....

I'm exhausted. The last two days we have spent it mostly at the hospital. Valerie had her c-section yesterday. It was tough for her and the rest of the family. She did get a little panic attack before going to the operating room and they needed to calm her down. Everything went well. We had the chance to keep the baby for one day. He was handsome! I wanted to share this picture that I took yesterday. This is Valerie holding her son's hand. He weighed 3 lbs. 11 oz. -- 16 inches. He was so beautiful. I will never forget his little face. I love him so much! Please keep praying for Valerie and her family. We will be going to the hospital tonight to spend some time with Valerie and her family.

I wanted to share this cute project I did a while back. This is my pencil holder I have next to my computer. It turned out so cute. Again, you cant go wrong with pink and brown!

This is the hair bow holder I did for Stacey. She won my "Hair Bow Holder Giveaway". The colors she choose are awesome! I love the color combination. I was glad I had the perfect ribbon to match the bow holder! Its so cute!

Several weekends ago we found these beautiful items at a yard sale.

This first item we bought it for only $5! Yep, 5 buckaroos! The family we bought it from used it to hang coats. As you can see in the second picture, the back board had hangers.

Now let me tell you the story how it fell apart. We kept this beautiful piece in our backyard since I still needed to paint. This afternoon I walk outside to take some nice pictures to post and what do you know; my beautiful piece laying on the ground, the backboard laying next to it broken and the glass door, all shattered! Last week was really windy! So windy, it knocked this piece straight to the ground! Good thing that its still ok. I will have to figure out how to fix it. What do you think about this piece? Im thinking of making it into a giant jewelry organizer! haha.. I have that much jewelry!

We bought this beautiful metal art for $2. Its beautiful! I loved it! Today my husband and I, hung this metal art in our bedroom!

What do you think? You cant really tell, but it looks much better in person. This little trick made the ceilings look higher. It looks awesome! Our master bedroom is coming along beautiful!

We bought these for $5. I still don't know where to place them! I'm thinking placing these on the sides of our mirror in our bedroom. I guess we will see how it works out.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed todays post. Thank you so much for visiting!

    I absolutely love the hairbow holder! It turned out beautiful! Thank you so much!

    And those are great finds. I can't believe you have that much jewelry!

  2. I will still keep your family in our prayers. I am glad you got to see him.

    I am jealous of your deal on that awesome metal art! It looks great in your bedroom! I may need to check out some yard sales!:)
