Boys Bedroom Makeover~Tank's Room

Tank's bedroom was in some desperate need of TLC. Since moving into this house we have slowly been working on each room and his was truly lacking. 

So when I saw these curtains from Sears that a local FB group yard sale site had listed, I knew that they were going to be my starting point for his room. 

I do need 2 more panels to allow more coverage. They match his comforter so well!


This Sunday my Husband finished this Nerf gun holder. It was a great Pinterest project that I saw and asked him to make it. He did a wonderful job!!

We still would like to replace his desk and dresser and I'm looking for some artwork for over his bed. 

Why are Boys rooms so much harder to decorate than Girls?

Forever Friday ~ A Book Review


Every Friday, a postcard.
Every Friday, a love poem.
Every Friday for sixty years.
 
Adam Colby is just doing his job, sorting through the unsold Alexander belongings after the estate sale. He is unprepared for what he finds in an old photo album, overlooked by the bargain hounds and treasure hunters—six decades of postcards and poems from Gabe Alexander to his wife, Pearl. The mystery of the Alexanders’ love entices Adam, a man unhinged by divorce and puzzled by the depth of commitment that he finds in the unabashedly romantic cards.
 
Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early twentieth century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple—Gabe and Pearl Alexander—are swept up in a miraculous love. As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe’s poems, the Alexanders reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other. Could the secrets of their love affair, laid to rest twenty years ago, hold the key to one man’s future?

~~ I simply loved this book, the story was timeless, smooth storyline with no hidden twists and turns. It takes you on quite the journey of the heart and at the end you feel like your closing a chapter on a sweet hour long movie.~~

This book was sent to me for Review by Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own.

Guest Bathroom Makover

Remember that BigLots haul I showed you about 2 months ago? 

I'm almost finished with our Guest bathroom, just need to find some Artwork for the walls. 
Not sure if the basket with hand towels will stay. 

Just not sure what to put on these 2 walls. 

Still looking for a tray for those Guest hand towels. 

Loving how these towels match the shower curtain. The towels are thick and nicely sized. 

I'm wondering about adding a nice clock in here and a black scroll wrought iron piece, any ideas Ladies? I'd love a fresh set of eyes and ideas!

IKEA~Yes Please

So this past Weekend Husband and I made our very first trip to IKEA!
I know, Where have we been!
Husband was looking for some Desk ideas and I just wanted to browse and take it all in. 
As we entered I saw this Beautiful bed
And Instantly fell in Love!

And then we both saw this
Love the cabbage roses but after awhile Husband admitted it wasn't for him. 

Then...
We both saw this and we Both love how cozy it looks. I love the colors and patterns. We haven't updated our bedroom in about forever so Slowly I'll be using this as our Inspiration and change out our Master. 

I did purchase this IKEA URSULA cozy couch throw. It reminds me of a Cableknit sweater and is so cozy on our couch. The color goes perfect with our BHG flowered couch throw. 
It was a Great Valntines Weekend! Hope you had a great one too!

Organization Week 3~ Pantry

The Pantry has always been the hardest for me to organize and make it look nice since you can see it from our kitchen and livingroom. 

Is it silly that I want it to look Cozy too?

After finishing in the Pantry, it was "National Chocolate Cake Day" and I was able to find all of the ingredients so I baked this 

It tasted so Good and didn't last the week! 

If you have any ideas on how to improve my pantry or know of any new Gooseberry patch books that are out now, Please let me know!

Here is another tour of my finished newly organized Pantry, hope you enjoy!

Organization Week 2~ Laundry Room

I'm cleaning my Laundry room, it's not dirty just alittle dust on the shelves. 

I hung my Roosters on the wall opposite the washer/dryer and added my antique canning jars next to the window. So Pretty when the sun glistens through the glass! 

Here are a few pictures 


Here is a more in-depth video where I can share how nice this room really is.

Barn Day~Friday

Usually on Fridays we go out to the barn to drop off feed and spend a few hours with Joey. On Friday Crystal has a DRs appointment so we won't be able to make it which is why we went out today. 
The weather was so nice here in FL this afternoon! 





I love how these two have such Patience with each other!

Having a Horse is so expensive and time consuming and somedays we just want to throw in the towel but there are days like today were everything works just right and the weather is perfect , makes you not want to leave the Barn.

Purging Plastics...

We are purging our Plastics for better Health. 

Getting rid of these. Most are old, stained from many uses and probably breaking down and leaching chemicals into our food with each use. 

We are replacing plastic with Glass!
These have received great reviews and was on sale on WOOT.com last week. I bought 2 sets, more than enough for us but with the kids loading/unloading the dishwasher I definetly wanted to make sure we had plenty. 

Next we will be purchasing new Stainless Steel Pots and Pans. Do you have any recommendations on sets?

Why you ask are we dong this? Cancer is on the rise and we are taking precautions, too many of our Family and Friends have been touched by Cancer.
