Ohhhh here we are on Thursday!! 

Today turned out to be gorgeous here in SW Texas…gorgeous enough to work a little bit in the garage!

So let's jump right into the revelry!!

{remember, you can click on the pics to see them larger!}

Tuesday my girlies and I went on an "adventure" as my 8yo likes to call a bunch of errands in a row! We ended up at a fun antique store about 10 minutes before they were going to close. I was looking for that perfect shelf. I actually had found one that I loved for 85$ about two weeks ago at a fun home interior boutique, but Tuesday when I ran in there to buy it, it was sold. I was okay with that! It had seemed a bit high in price even though it was exactly what I wanted. That shelf looked a lot like this shelf here:

So we were in this fabulous antique store, and I found two shelves made out of wood and vintage tin ceiling tiles. The owner of the store measured the shelves for me, but they were just a little too long! I asked if the shelves were antiques or reproductions (at $190 each, i was hoping they were antiques), but no…they were reproductions. I told the owner that i needed to measure and probably find something a little shorter in length! (and sell a child to pay all that money!!)

On our way home, we stopped off at Hobby Lobby. Guess what they had ON SALE 50% off???? wood shelves with antique tin ceiling tiles!!! the perfect length, too!! The only problem was that it wasn't white. But that won't stop a crafter, right?

Mr Gorgeous knows what he's doing this weekend!

While at Hobby Lobby, I found this really fun bird cage to put on my shelf! (or close by, we'll see!!)

I was going to paint it white, but opted to keep it this fun neutral color to give the kitchen even more of that vintage look!! I have some awesome birds and a nest to place in here with some fun moss…can't wait to get that shelf up…spring is here!!

Here's a fun pic of my darling 10yo, Emma, who was helping me scrape some blue paint off of a piece of a door that I'm going to paint a fun sign on for the kitchen! Homeschooling at it's best!!

I have to admit that since most of my creativity goes into music, quilting, and scrapping, I tend to avoid the kitchen!! Well, my darling sister posted a link on my Facebook wall to a fun, easy (very fast!) recipe from Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman!  Mystery Rolls (click for the recipe!)

Last night I made them and the kids DEVOURED them! My favorite comment was Quentin's: 

"Mom, you need to give me the recipe right now so that I can cook these when I move out!!"

he's 12! (love that!!)

Aren't they cute???

I've decided that when I get a little more pocket cash, I'm going to pick up Ree's new cookbook, cook out of it every night (sorta!!), and BLOG…like Julie and Julia!! love that!!!

isn't that guitar inviting???

I bought a Shabby Chic shower curtain to put under the table to cover up my crazy stacks of stuff under my table! I hemmed it to fit and added ribbons to hold it to the shower curtain rod (that we had bought for something else…repurposing-YAY!!) i adore those ruffles!! yay, Target!!! 

I've become completely addicted to feed sacks…yup, you heard me. Vintage feed sacks are sooo cool!! So I found one (or really 100) on ebay and bid and won!! and it kinda looks cool on my kitchen curtains. So now I'm researching things I can do with it!!
