Hi Friends … and Happy Friday. I can’t say it’s been a crappy week because I’m finishing my vacation. Work was [is] daunting + but my daughter and my friend tell me that they have no sympathy for me + so basically … “get your ass back to work”. Last week was filled with interesting + joyous + and frustrating events. I couldn’t finish my bathroom projects because the trim kit I ordered was the wrong size + and it couldn’t fit over the existing valve’s [bummer]. While I was extremely disappointed + this give me a chance to get what I really want vs. getting what I think will work. In the long run it will look so much better + but I should have gone with my gut feeling in the very beginning of this process.
Although the weather hasn’t been great + it’s just been nice to have some “me” time and focus on resetting my home + and some self care. I’ve been able to write + see family + do some decorating + and some DIYs + and just relax. — Here is a quick recap. —
1 + 2 | Started on my dipped painted frames … they are both 5 x 7 and I’m filling them with fabric to complete a gallery wall. 3 | was taken after “B’s” B-Day lunch 4| Finishing up some fall decorating + 5| Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole for Sunday dinner was just fantastic.
Since I’m all about the DIY projects … here are a few to get you started this weekend. — Enjoy.

Hello Friends! and yes it’s Friday … Happy start to the weekend … Happy start to my stay-cation. Now usually on my stay-cation I always tackle some big project around the house. However … last year + I decided to get some good rest. My daughter and I hit New York for a day + I went to MoMa for the first time + and we went Central Park [oooh the sites…]. This year I do have things to do but I’m reserving them for the 2nd half of my time off. I do have to replace my shower head + overflow cap + faucet + and drain stopper … which should only take an hour but who knows.
Otherwise my days will be filled with getting my house in order + catching up on some reading + visiting with family + and spending time with my daughter who has a birthday coming. It’s so crazy how time flies … she get’s older + and I just get better [LOL]. I’m also still debating on whether or not I want to get more faux pumpkins or buy real ones. I mentioned before that the advantage to real pumpkins is that you can throw them away when your done vs. finding a place to keep all the faux ones. I’m also looking at some great ways I can trick out some pumpkins. They’re not just orange + and white anymore. Check out these pumpkin DIYs.
1. Cute Faced Mini Pumpkins + Homey Oh My
2. Splattered Pumpkins + Homey Oh My
3. Paint Dipped Pumpkins + Ciera Design Studio
4. Wood Slice Pumpkin + The Kim Six Fix
5. Copper Herringbone Pumpkins + Lovely Indeed
