It's FRIDAY!!!  And, so far I'm sticking with my little Friday series.  Which doesn't say much, because it's only the second one.  Here are some fun things from this past week.

This Cozy Coupe Makeover... almost makes me wish I had more little people around so I could make them one of these!  I completely love every project from Dwellings by Devore-check them out if you have a few hours to kill.  :)

Jill directed us to this post from Karianne, and I just about cried my eyes out before I finished reading it, and I don't do that very often at all.  So sweet.

On Sundays, I either wear my hair down and curled or up in a messy-ponytail-bun (which is how I wear it almost every day).  Lately I've come across Kate's blog and have been inspired to try some new things.  Last Sunday, I tried the High Bun.  I was running late and didn't have a lot of time, so it turned out o.k. but definitely could have been better.  Kinda hard to see at this angle (selfies are hard!), but it was a fun change.  Kate's tutorials are fabulous if you're not familiar with her blog.

This came in the mail a few days ago.  The green is gorgeous!  This post from last week has the details.  The red is for my son's room and I'm not sure where the black and white will go yet, I just loved it and wanted some before it was all gone.  

Last week my sister Sarah and I had to run into Hobby Lobby while the boys were at home working on the big project, and we found this:

It is SO great!  It's almost 2 inches wide and comes in lots of colors.  It's exactly what I wanted when I was transforming my thrift store lamps, but couldn't find something like it in town.  Well, it's new, and I couldn't resist!  So, the re-done lamps already got a little tweak.  This trim would be perfect for the edge of some curtain panels, also.

Speaking of the big project, I've hit a few snags this week and didn't get to show you two projects I was really hoping to!  Let's just say the kitchen project involved a piece of broken glass.  It took a few days to get a replacement and put me behind.  However, I'll give you one more little's what we're working on!

They are BIG:  18" wide and 31" tall.  Oh, and there's two if you didn't catch that.  I can't wait for this one!

I also had a delay with finishing the dresser.  Believe it or not, there was not one knob at Hobby Lobby (or Home Depot or Lowe's) that looked right.  I did find some but had to special order, so, more waiting.  I'm LOVING the color, though!

OK, that's it for today!  We're off to our niece's High School graduation, so no projects except enjoying the family will be happening this weekend.  Have a great one friends!

  9. That trim looks amazing on your lamp shade! Good find. I love Kate's blog, such a beautiful lady, and she has the best hair, although you are not too far hair refuses to cooperate with anything :( I still have my eye on that giant clam shell...very soon I hope.
