Today i'm linking up for Insta-Friday over at "Life Rearranged"

life rearranged

We had a pretty low-key weekend last week. The girls had their final iceskating class of the season and passed their level. They are now ready to join the iceskating academy:

Mia was very excited to see her daddy on T.V. sitting front row at a Yankee spring training game:

Lots of snuggling:

Taking Sonny for a walk downtown:

And my favorite!! Dunkin Donuts Vanilla Chai:

Window Shade update

My master bedroom has been through many changes as you can see here.

One thing ALWAYS bothered me about it though. My wimpy balloon vallances. I don't have a great picture of them but you can see one of them here:

I decided to fix that this weekend, and I did the same thing that I did to update my kitchen shades.

I chose fabric that I liked (drapes from TARGET):

I cut the fabric to size and used some fabric glue to just glue the fabric along the sides of the original shade (I put cans along the edges until it was good and dry):

I am liking the new more updated look and now I really need to replace the small black bedside table on my husband's side, with one like the IKEA table on my side:

(the bolster pillow on the bed is cream, not yellow....... my camera stinks!!)

The Habitat strikes again

I've said it before and i'm going to say it again;

I LOVE the Habitat for Humanity Restore!!

I have yet to leave that place empty handed. Even when I don't find what i'm looking for, I still find something I didn't know I was looking for:)

Here are some of my past scores:

Yesterday was no exception!!

I saw about 7 "sunburst"-looking mirrors in a corner for $12. I snatched one up and wish I would've taken them all.....

She actually doesn't look that bad. And, it's hard to tell here, but the mirror is huge!! It's over 2 feet in diameter.

It was kind of dark and heavy looking for me, so I fixed that!

Eeeeek!! I LOVE her:)
