Long time....

It's been a long time since I posted anything and I have an excuse. I've been doing a lot of this:
 Which means, I've been doing a lot of this:
 I've been getting up at 4:15 AM...yes that is AM! Its the only time I can get to the gym to run. Working full time with a small child doesn't leave me much time to workout. However, I'll be back!

Thrifty Thursday

Patterson book    $.50
Cloche                 $5.99

That is the most I have ever paid for a cheese dome. However, they are becoming REALLY hard to find. I think the blog world of cloches is getting around my neighborhood!!

I had seen this little LOVE  sign on another craft blog and thought it was too cute. It was so easy too. 
 I bought the frame on clearance at Target, $2. The buttons are from Michaels, $2. I used black felt I already had and glued it directly to the glass. I used hot glue to glue the buttons on. Easy peasy project. I'm so happy to finally find something to do with my tray. I bought it 6 months ago from Joann's looking like this:
I sprayed painted it Heirloom white. I think I paid $6 for the tray. I love my Valentine table runner too. Another great find at Pottery Barn Kids AFTER Valentine's Day a few years ago.

A little Valentine decor

So since I have been unsuccessful in finding my accent table, this will have to do.
 This is a SMALL nook in my china hutch. It sure doesnt hold a lot to display. I bought the sign ($10) and plate ($6) at my little Beehive store. The heart dish came from Goodwill for a $1. Lastly the plate holder came from Michaels, $6 after using my 40% off coupon, of course. It was originally black but I think it looks better painted in Heirloom white.
