Crazy For The Next Few Days

My husband will be having a test on his back this week as well as having to travel out of town for a doctor visit for the results.

They will be injecting dye into his back and I'm totally freaking out. My anxiety is taking over...

I'm not sure if I will be around this week or not. I will try to do the photo a day (on Facebook and Twitter) and will try to get Functional Friday up and going if possible.

Just in case I don't see you this week... Hope you have a great week and I will see you next week!

Update: You know I couldn't stay away!!! My mental breakdown is over and I'm all good now... well, for now. :)

Quick Flower Arrangement

While visiting my mother-in-law this weekend, she gave us some items to take back home to go through and/or put in our next garage sale. In the bottom of the tote... I was super excited to find a metal hanging basket. I have always wanted one of these to hang on our front door as an "everyday" door decor item.

Off to Wally World we went to find some flowers and Styrofoam. I originally wanted Hydrangea's, but couldn't find the ones that I wanted so I went with a Summer type bouquet. Anything pretty to bring me out of the winter slump.

I gathered my new goodies...

Look What I Found

Sunday, my Mother brought over an old sewing cabinet that I just had to keep out of our garage sale stuff. My grandparents had donated it for our sale and I quickly snatched it up. No picture of it yet! I can't wait to make it over... just as soon as I have time.

I rode with her over to my parents house to drop off a storage cabinet that I gave to them and help move my Dad's gun cabinet.

On the way back home, I spotted these...

Hand Painted Stress Sign Tutorial

A while ago few years ago, my mother handed me a page she had torn out of CountryDoor.com's magazine. She wanted me to paint this sign for her...
Being the procrastinator that I am... I just now painted it. Just in time for her birthday!

Valentine's Wreath Tutorial

I wanted to whip up a last minute wreath idea to have something to hang on our bare door. At least for a couple of days.
The first thing I did was trace a heart onto a piece of printer paper to use as a template. I folded the paper in half... longways... traced half of the heart then cut with the paper still folded.

Once I had my template, I traced around it onto a piece of foam and then drew a heart inside the previous one about an inch in. Once the heart was the way I liked, I used my xacto knife to cut it out. This created my heart wreath.

Decorating With Jars

I'm in love with all of the beautiful jars that I'm seeing in the wonderful Internet world!

Even though many of the pictures that I'm sharing below pertain to weddings, these spruced up jars would look great displayed in your home, backyard or garden!
