Old Door For Displaying Pictures

I have had this door for a few years, I scored it at a garage sale.  I brought it home and it sat in the corner of my dining room.  I have hung framed pictures on it, multiple wreaths, and even an old ladder. 

It's very heavy so I really don't want to hang it on my before I do something crazy like cut it in half for shelving, I thought I would display some priceless pictures from it.
Using the most rusty looking nails and wire, I attached them to the door.  Now I have a cool place (for now) to hang these great pictures of my family. 

 I placed the door in our office. I am working on decorating this space and this has given me a starting point of what I want to do next. 

I really need a new camera...

My Own Heirloom

I love these frames I came across on the old PB website.

 Well I suffer from "instant gratification" syndrome...I had to have them now.  So I dug through my boxes a came across these frames that were actually given to me by my husbands grandmother ( heirloom), haha.   

The way I know that I like something is if I wake up the next day and it still looks good! This picture does not do any justice...I guess you had to be

Love Note

 If you know me, you know that I am completely in love with my husband.  He makes my whole world better.  So when I came across this little "love note"  I had to have it.  I saw something similar to this and wanted to make one.  I will eventually frame it out and put it in my bedroom.

I found everything I needed at Walmart...and my garage (lumber).
-package of stencils
-stencil brushes
-white craft paint
-painter tape
-a Square
-any piece of wood you can find in your garage!

Felize Navidad to ME!

I have had the
biggest crush on
these caged pendant lights.

I found them at Barn Light Electric
Soon the pressure
was too much



I caved 
 and bought them.

 I love the simpleness of them.

 Seriously the best lighting choice for my kitchen.
I just need to find some
cool Edison bulbs for them.

My sweet,
rock star,
husband installed them while
I was out-of-town.

He must have missed me because
he finished a few projects when I
was away.  

But those are for a later post.
