Hello everyone, happy, peaceful Sunday to you! I had a wonderful birthday week and only have one more party to go to with just one more birthday cake to eat then it will be over till the end of August. Whee! Thank you to all that stopped by to wish me a happy birthday, surprisingly I didn’t get all freaked out turning 61 I just would think about the quote on pinterest “ Don’t regret growing older, it’s a privilege that’s been denied to many” I thought I had pinned the quote but didn’t! This quote puts things in perspective don’t you think?
Believe me I got a lot of gift cards and went shopping Friday with my bff…Hobby Lobby was first and I found this cute birdhouse and with my 40% off coupon I think I got it for 6 something! Cute, black with some white French scrolling! When I buy a Boston fern for here I’ll put the birdhouse on the tree stump in the front of the yard. Soon there will be flowers in the window boxes and I can’t wait!
Hobby Lobby had their baskets at 50% off so I picked up the middle one, the one on the left I had and the one on the right I used for Chris when he was a baby my mom had made a liner for it The top of my cabinets are really coming along for me, Kelly of The Essence of Home has the most beautiful style that I just love and loved the top of her cabinets with baskets! If you have never visited her blog stop over because her home is fabulous!
I thought I’d show you the other side of the kitchen with my milk crate that was in the garage, I was blog hopping and noticed on one blog a milk crate and it reminded me of the one under the work bench. Out it came, I emptied it out and dusted it off and now it’s on top of my cabinets, amazing where you can find things and best of all it was free! Love those!
We stopped at Ikea and got lost inside, so confusing to me.lol Anyway I bought these tin pots for .79 each and the greenery for 6.98 each I bought three and put one here on my open shelves!
Another went on this side of the mantel, if your ever in Ikea stop and see these because they are really lifelike for faux plants. I had a real ivy one here but it didn’t’ make it, so if I want greenery around my home I have to resort to faux ones.
I placed this one on my shelf above the couch, you can see how having live or good faux greenery really adds to the arrangement that you do!
Hope you enjoyed seeing a few of my presents…love to shop♥
