Thank You Lettered Cottage!

My Herb Nesting Crates are up and I have to give credit to The Lettered Cottage for all of the inspiration on how to display them!  Thanks :) I love them!

A Bad Day for a Snowman!

I got tired of looking at this snowman and went to pull it up and his whole head fell off!  Poor guy.  Guess he's sick of winter too!
So, we had to build a new one in the backyard and my son was holding on to it for dear life!  

We soaked up some Vitamin D or "Spiderman D" on this blissful Saturday in February!  Ahhhh, Spring is a comin' ;)

Little Maine Room-Something to C!

I came home from church on Wednesday night and I saw these hanging in the windows!!!!  Love them!!! Also, the trim has been painted a crisp white, we added the new cottage stripe curtains, and...

                               TAHDAH! What a difference!
MORE TO COME!  Yes, that is a "must go" to your left of the picture!  A computer hutch! Ugh!  Every makeover room would not be complete without having to get rid of one of those! lol;) Alyssa

Little Maine Room-Making Something Out of Nothing

Welcome to The Ugly Room Transformation -Take 1- This room, which was my son's room for a bit, will be turning into our "Little Maine Coastal Room," or "Little Maine Room".  The color on the walls will stay the same as it is a room transformation on a strict budget of basically putting my design on a dime skills to the TEST!   Here we go....Open the door!

Here- nice cottage door, beautiful sage green walls, nice crisp white trim too...

                   Oh boy! Brown Leather Lazy Boy, Mini Vinyl Blinds, Brown Trim, Beautiful Junk!

The Dinosaur Country Plaid Couch that was free from my cousin and has seen much better days.  We've had it for about 6 years.  Eeegahds!

We changed all of the doors in our house and forgot one!  Can you believe it?!  The doors were all custom ordered!  What can I do with this?  I have some ideas!  Can't wait! Next picture please...
                            Once I grab my Purdy paintbrushes there will be no stopping me on this trim!
And more trim!  It just keeps showing up!
It is a room with a view;) We live on a back road,
with Maine being only an hour and 45min. away!

with images of Maine in my mind


And a handy husband

 Our Little Maine Room has begun...Stay Tuned

Our Family Wish Bowl-Share What You Love

Our Family Wish Bowl
Please pardon the picture as my table cloth is currently being laundered, but as my little boy is napping I took the time to share our Family Wish Bowl with all of you.  

The three candles are for Love, Health, and Happiness.  The outside of the bowl represents seasons, the sea glass represents family, the beach stones are to remind us that rough spots can be smoothed out, and the star fish is for prayers and wishes. 

The candles are lit at random times, sometimes when praying, for peace, or for serenity & relaxation but all three must be lit.        
Have fun making your family wish bowls!

'"Flea Market Dreaming On Such A Winter's Day'"

Snow may be on the way to Massachusetts, but looking on the bright side of this cold, cold winter, the Brimfield Flea Market starts May 11th!  I'm hoping to find some very cheap, but fantastic Flea Market finds!
