Great Thrift Shop Finds and A Lovely Birthday

I had an absolutely wonderful birthday today. I spent the entire day with my sweetheart and my children. My daughter spoiled me and my little guy cuddled me all day.

My sweetheart told me we can do "anything I want to do today" and so I asked him to help me with a bulletin board project. You see our back door is where all of the paperwork and notices and real important information is kept as that is the first place we see when walking out the door. Well, I just could not keep it looking tidy and organized so I bought an inexpensive bulletin board, spray painted it white and hung it on the door. Now everything is tacked to it nice and neat and it looks so much more attractive. See if you agree.... here is the before....YIKES!

Now it looks like this and I expect it to stay that way! (that is what I told my family)


I will unveil my fireplace/mantle makeover in the next week or so. I painted the fireplace today in preparation for the mantle which I will pick up next week. I couldn't sit still even on my birthday. My family took me out for a wonderful steak dinner and then we relaxed the rest of the evening. It was a beautiful (and a bit hot) day here in Southern California, I couldn't have asked for more....

Found a little place "off the beaten path" near where I work on Friday and popped in there on my lunch hour. Took these treasures home for $5.00 (TOTAL). Wow, I felt like I was stealing them, but that's what the lady was askin......these will look sweet in my living room....

Til next time.....
