I've started printing out some inspiration pictures for our house, now that all of the children are older, we will be mostly toy free. which allows for a LOT more flexibility design and decor wise.
In other news, Bill has just this week changed over to a job in the company that will allow him to work at home, which could be fantastic..or an utter disaster LOL.
Seriously though, I think the fantastic days will far out number the sick of each other days.
The new meds are a mixed blessing. The pristiq I take in the mornings for depression really helps to get me moving and rocks the anti depression angle, however the seroquel I take at night for the mania basically overrides this effect and leaves me groggy and sleepy for hours after I wake up the next day. My doctor assures me that this wears off after a couple of weeks so I should just give it time, But I have to admit that, at times, it is so tempting to drop the seroquel and
Maybe if I'd started them both at the same time and not realized how good I felt on the pristiq alone I would be more enthusiastic about waiting out the sleepies, but I didn't, I had almost a week of getting more than should have been possible accomplished before starting the

While I have a lot of projects lined up and some even started for many of the sale designs, I'd like to share what must be a particular favorite of mine..(after all, I bought it a few days before the sale..and then again AT the sale! LOL No worries though, Crystal is Fantabulous and a quick email about this and one other duplicate purchase and she swapped them out in no time flat :)) her Bon Appetit image.
Last night I was in the mood to do some
So anyhow, these towels are HUGE! They come in at approximately 29" x 30".
Which is a bit too large for my purposes. So with a bit of a snip from my scissors and a tiny bit of humming from my machine I ended up with these:

Grand total was $35. In addition to what you see in the picture, there was a pair of Sonoma jeans for minion 2, and 3 shirts for me. More on one of the shirts later.
I have achievable plans for everything here.
The arm chair tray will get a coat of paint to match my tray and be of use during family movie night, or when I'm stitching.
The airplane picture frame will go into Minion 3's room..it's metal and the propellers actually spin..So cool!
I go through so much stitch witchery that it isn't funny, so I will put it to good use and the tiny package is actually a pair of joints for a jointed monkey I plan to make soon.
The spindles and finial are for wreath hangers.These metal containers seem to have been made for herbs (there were originally from world market and marked at $3.00 a piece, I scored these babies for $0.90 each!!) But I will use them for glitters and beads.
And the glass globe was originally for a porch light or similar, but I have an idea for it that I will share with you after the weekend.
I love the pebble like texture of the globe.
And this wasn't part of the thrifting haul, but it didn't arrive until today, Hubby knows just exactly what to give a shopper for any occasion...Guilt free shopping!
With my Valentines mad money (Thank you again Honey! SMOOOOCH!) I/Bill got me this really cool vintage magazine rack..Which will of course get a nice new coat of....., Well, I haven't decided that yet lol!
It's double sided, and the plan is to keep my Country Living magazines (from the new subscription that I/Bill also got me for Valentines) and softcover crafting/needlework books close at hand and showcased here.Love it :)
I will never be "skinny", I will never be like many of the young little petite bloggers that I follow, nor would I want to. I am too big. I'm 5' 6.5" tall, and even right after Highschool when I *wasn't* overweight, I couldn't wear the same clothes as the rest of the girls, my frame is just too large. I couldn't (and still can't...now I'm allergic LOL) even wear bracelets, watches or anklets without special ordering them.
