get it done

was my motto this weekend.

i purchased this old shipping crate probably 6 months ago.
4 months ago i found the wheels at a second hand store for $2 each.
and until this weekend, they have been sitting in the basement.
total project time:  7 minutes.
why does it take me so long to just
get things done?!

pillow and plates

while out thrifting this week i  found this lovely pillow.

i just love the ruffle around it. 

 embroidered on the back is paper white.
which apparently is some upscale linen company.

i originally though it would make an appearance in my booth.
but now, it's looking beautiful on my bed.

and then today, i found these fun plates.
there are no markings on the back. and found nothing by using google.
they appear vintage to me, but i am not sure.

 i think they are adorable with a capital A.
i scooped up all 4 of them.

anyone know anything about these?  leave me a comment if you do, and hey, about just leaving me a comment today even if you don't know anything about them.  ;) 
you'll make my day!

10 minute solution

my four year olds problem today: 
"how can i make a wish
if i can't see the stars"?

my 10 minute solution:
make a paper star garland.

now, he just has to look up,
see his stars
and make a wish.

 problem solved! whew!

mom, we're bored

a lazy saturday morning.

the boys were using up their allotted wii time
and i was catching up on my favorite blogs.

i am so glad that i did.

late saturday afternoon i heard those three little words...
mom, we're bored!

and i knew exactly what to do!

i copied kasey buick

 i had read her blog saturday morning
and saw that she had painted a wall dark for her children.
and then let them draw all over it!
remember this sealskin colored wall i painted last fall?

nope, it isn't chalk board paint.

it is just a dark, flat paint.

and yes, it wipes right off with an eraser or damp cloth.

so i jumped in too,
i didn't want to miss any of the fun.

and we ended up going a wee bit crazy.
we covered most of the wall.

but it kept us busy, the boys thought it was ultra cool,
it was a fun activity for a cold day

i am now having second thoughts on repainting this wall back to cream.

thank you kasey for such a fun idea!

what do you do when your kids are bored? 
leave me a comment, i'd love to hear!
