So Much to Do..So Little Time!

I have so much on my "To Do" list, it's flippin' ridic. Good news is, several of these are fun "To Do's".

Recently I found an antique window mirror on Kijiji (Buy and Sell site for those of you not familar). I have a vision for this puppy that includes a bold, primary color and some'll have to stay tuned for the final product.

I also just picked up 2 matching vintage side tables, another Kijiji find, that I think will be off-the-hook when I am done with them.

ALSO, my guy and me have a spare room that is just going to waste and basically serving as a place for me to store my clutter. My goal for Jan/Feb/March is to turn this into a spare room using my revamped vintage finds! This is very exciting for me. 

I'd like to complete at least the mirror and possibly a side table before we take off for Me-hi-co in mid January for my bro's wedding.

So yes, busy, busy, busy but I am super stoked to get a start on these new projects!

So each year my Christmas taste changes .. or should I say evolves? Yup! Last year I was all about the warm tones. Golds and reds were my fave color scheme for xmas decor.

This year I am really diggin' the whole "Woodland Christmas" thing. Very neutral tones; creams, beiges, browns, greens .. and a whole lotta "woodsiness". Love it. 

Cream monogrammed stockings from Pottery Barn

I love these deer. We all know it's Christmas..It's not necessary to go all out with the ordinary green and red everything. Unless that's what you're into..thaz cool. Urban Barn has a version of these guys for around $7. Pretty darn cute!

I love this wreath. Simple, rustic, not at all colorful but lovely! There are bits of grass and feathers worked into it. Wouldn't want to be the one to create it but it sure is purdy!

Patchwork Princess

A friend of mine called and said she had a dresser she was using in her daughters room that was falling apart. She was tossing around the idea of either fixing er' up or surrendering and hauling it to the dump. I said "we can save her!!!!" and went over to take a look. She was definitely in rough shape. She was made of MDF and the bottom drawer was falling apart. It didn't look good..

She wanted something that wasn't too "baby-ish" and would last until her daughter got older. A it! I love vintage inspired decor and furniture. I did some research and found the picture above. Patchwork...yesssss!!! Cute and vintage yet not too kiddy-ish. Perfect!
