Things I'm Lovin' Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope this finds you well.  I'm still not 100% but Motrin has definitely helped with the aches and sore throat.   I attempted to do some stuff today and nearly passed out so I thought that it was probably a good idea to rest.  This was not a good time to get sick (is there ever?) because I was already behind on my posts, errands, housework, and so on.  I'm trying not to get overwhelmed cuz you guys are awesome and I know you understand.  So thanks for being patient with me.  I would rather be on here and crafting but something about life and responsibilities, blah, blah, blah...
Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

So Sunday I took all the left overs from the yard sale to Goodwill and of course I had to take a peek inside to see what they had.  This Goodwill is way overpriced and I rarely have any luck BUT not this time!!!  Look. what. I. found. 

Eeek!!  Seriously the whole set? For 20 bucks. You should have see me, I snatched them up and looked around to make sure no one else had dibs.  Then I did a happy dance in my head!  I have these two refrigerator dishes already.

I got those for 99 cents each at Salvation Army.  They are what kinda started me on pyrex collecting.  I love this butterprint pattern and color!  I plan on using the bowls.  I'm not much for putting things I love on a shelf and just watch them collect dust.  (except for these, he he)

Way back when I asked your opinion on my Living Room.  Well a lot has gone down in that room, new paint (it's called Dolphin Cove btw), new floors, new tv stand, new rug, and now dun dun dun....

a new couch!!

Love it! Love it! Love it!!

BUT I still need your help.  

See that big blank wall above...I am at a loss of what to do. Any ideas?  

Here's some of my ideas:

So my first is to paint 3 rectangle canvases with a picture that stretches across. Possibly a cherry blossom with maybe a little birdie? I know you can't tell from this crummy doodle but I really can draw and paint.

Then there is the whole empty frame trend which I like.  Not sure what color I would want the frames.  Maybe all white with one a different color?

I saw this idea in BHG magazine except it was 2 frames on top of two.  And they were each 20x20 and inside the mat were cute melamine birdie plates.  I like the look of 2 on 2 and 3 across.

Oh and see the lamp in the table next to the couch?  I was thinking of painting it?  Good idea? Bad idea? Any color suggestions?
And this space over here.  

OMG look at all those sippy cups!
Should I put up shelves?  We don't have room in our "dining room" for a buffet or hutch but I'd love some sort of storage/display area.  Whatcha think?  Please share...

And I still haven't decided on a dining set :-(

Thanks guys!


  1. Sorry you're so sick! :( Hope you feel better soon!

    Personally, I like the canvas idea (surprise surprise!) with the cherry blossoms. ANd I vote 'yes' for shelves along the other wall. You could display your new bowls when not in use. :)

  2. How in the heck did I miss this post?!?!? First of all, LOVE the color of the living room. And the couch looks awesome... way braver than I am going with the white. I would go with the three tall painted canvases, and the shelves are a definite yes.

    I'm so jealous of your Pyrex find. LOVE IT!


Connecting with people is one reason I love blogging. So bring on the comments and questions, they make my day! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say "hello!"

I love to reply to all comments so if your email is not linked to your profile I send my comment to this noreply guy. And that makes us both sad. Thanks!
