Thrifty Nifty Home Finds

In April I started work on a gallery wall in our family room and shared the pics of the beginnings. I still felt like it wasn't full enough for the wall and I needed to add a couple more items to create the impact I was going for.

So of course, I headed to the local Habitat Store to see what I could find on the cheap and I actually came out with some great finds!

I picked up these two great plants prints with gold frames for $2.50 each and a neat little picture titled "Pilgrimidge to Canterbury" for only $2.00. I loved the size of this piece and thought it would work great on the wall.

I enlisted the help of Mike to place the pictures in different places on the wall, fitting into the existing gallery already hanging, and picked the placement I liked the best. A couple of nails later,we were done. Here's the before and after, just to show the difference.

 I really like the finished product and feel like it fills out the space perfectly!

And just because I was taking pics of the den, I thought I'd show you the rest of my eclectic living area. Most of the fun finds I've picked up at local thrift stores and yard sales. I've found a great way to fill up my built-ins with interesting items is to pick up old books at the Habitat store for $1.00 and remove the paper covers. They bring a lot of interest and fun to the room.

It's certainly not the clean lines and modern look we had in our previous townhome, but I love the fun look of this room and I'm going to call it officially DONE!!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
