Simply Organizing

"To what to my wondering eyes did appear, but some little tin pails with numbers so darn close to my house number that I had to keep searching in the shelves and.... YAHTZEE!!" P.S. Pay no attention to the ugly brown computer hutch, or the starfish dust covering the hutch so nicely.  The hutch will be leaving.  But!  It works for now until I find a CHEAP way to either make it white, or find a nice white table/desk that is super dee-duper cheap! ;)  Enjoy your Friday~

A Room With A View

I had to take a picture of my yard outside my kitchen window.  We have a HUGE rhody that got a bit damaged in an ice storm that we had 2 years ago.  But, it is the biggest I've ever seen!  It's bursting with purple/pink flowers.  
I also took one of my herb garden that is in need of some weeding!  Have fun ;)  Also, looking for galvanized pails and tubs for some chalkboard paint. 

And isn't this cottage really cute!  I could move right in!  You could too.  It's for sale in Moody, Maine!  My husband took a picture of it as we were riding down the road.  I love the color...I have a thing for green.

IDEAS Dance in my head!!!~Ribbons, Cottage Home Shoppe in Maine,...

Photo above from Country Living Magazine.  What could I do with ribbon?...Hmmm....I know it's on sale for $1.00 at Michael's and I've even found some for FREE at the recycle center.  Images of galvanized pails and flowers from the garden, maybe even some chalkboard paint, dance in my head! 
                                     Below middle image with green hutch is from Country Living Magazine.  I love that hutch and how the white contrasts with the green.  Beautiful!  The two images on the waaay left and waaay right are from the shop Cottage Home Furniture in Cape Neddick, Maine on Rte. 1  This shop is very, very (too) close to my parent's summer place.  Make sure you stop on by this shop, if you are ever in the York area, or visit their website.  You will LOVE it!!!  Oh, and you have to check out the TWIG CANOPY BED below...

Just another reason to visit Cottage Home Furniture!  
This bed is soooo pretty!

Happy Birthday to ME! May 7th!

 ~Celebrating my B-Day in Maine last year~
I have to admit it, I LOVE my birthday!  Always have...and tomorrow it's my 34th birthday, YAY!  As I reflect on another year gone by (sappy I know), but I think about all that I'm so thankful for, things I've done, new goals that are being set, and for the love of my husband, son, and two wonderful parents. 
On another note, I finally found a spot for my milk glass, which I will post soon and I'm in search of a white cake pedestal.  I'm going to be posting about table centerpieces because I'm stumped!  If you have any good table centerpiece ideas please let me know.
