Wow, I have been busy blogging today (three times) but also getting things done!
I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the fabric to recover our kitchen chairs. How many of you have had kitchen chairs that look like this after 5 kids and numerous spills...whoops sorry Mom!
But thankfully I was able to get the screwdriver persistence of my husband teamed with my new staple gun and we created this...
I am thrilled with the look of the "new" chairs! While shopping at Hobby Lobby I found a few other things that added some new charm to the house. First, I found this darling rabbit for 50% off--making him $4.50 and shockingly I also found the cabbage plate for $3 on clearance from $19.99 I think. So for $8.75 (I bought a bag of jelly beans too) I have a cute Easter display to use with my cloche! I couldn't believe it fit perfectly on there too!!!
I found this wreath 50% off as well, it was $25 but I am so fond of the nester's style with pheasant feathers I had to copy her! I used some greenery and a flower I had around the house to soften it a bit and also hot glued a little birds nest in it and clipped on another bird. I think it looks pretty for the front door. (Click on it to see the full thing.)
Here are some spring flowers with a pheasant touch to them I bought today. Finally some new spring touches in the house!
I also hit Express and bought two new swing cardigans and a cute black sweater, yes that's right...that is so me...I shop for spring and end up with white, black and pink at the most usually. I like color really, just not on me so much! LOL
It was quite an eventful day and I even worked in 2 hours on the phone to my grandma, making dinner for my family and cleaning the house! I will update more later! Have a great rest of the weekend!
