To Etsy or Not to Etsy

To Etsy or not to Etsy that is the Question?!?!

I consider myself a pretty crafty person and every time I am searching Etsy.com I think to myself I should start my own Etsy store.

ILOVE LOVE LOVE anything girly! I think every little girl should be wearing a bow and a tutu at all times even if its just going to the grocery store. I use to say I wanted all girls but God has a sense of humor and gave Me all boys (I wouldnt change it for the world)!

So here are a couple of my bows and tutus..... Yes that is my son wearing a bow lol....

This is my little niece Avery don't you just want to eat her up.... So what do u think?

Just a Few Things I Need for Working on the House

I am in much need of my own tools! Its just no fun using my husbands MAN tools when these would be so much cooler.....

What women's life is not complete without a pink drill.....

And of coarse I need a place to store all these sassy tools.....
It would need to be bedazzled lol!

Happy Sunday!

Break Out Your Paint Brushes

Its been five years since we have painted the main rooms in our house which means time for new paint! Of coarse you know me I cant paint them the same color they were before, its time for a CHANGE! I went to Home Depot and Lowe's an cleaned out their paint swatches. I LOVE LOVE LOVE theses little paint samples you can buy for only $3 a piece.... Paxton decided I needed help.......
I can never just visit one section at home depot. I thought if I cant afford to vamp up my counter tops why not put up a back splash to make them look nicer! I really liked this one and at $2.50 a square foot its a steal!!!Ok back to my paint.......

For some crazy reason I thought I might like a teal green in my kitchen (#4) until I put it up on the wall and decided I lived in Texas not Florida so this was not a good choice for me!

#1 is the current color of my bathroom, which I have never been that crazy about and not crazy about for my living room either

#2 is a Martha Stewart Paint, that girl knows what she doing I think its a WINNER for my living room!

# 3 Another Martha color which I also LOVE! Defiantly a strong contender for my kitchen,

#4 Heck NO!

#5 I like but is kinda boring and predictable

What do Y'all think?

My New Favorite Show

Now I know we are all guilty of this!
I try so hard to sort threw the junk at my house so that I don't turn into the people on this show!
I Know I am no were near the serious issues these people are facing but with a small house and limited storage my mind feels like there house looks!

This is such a sad show about people who hoard stuff. I watched an episode the other day were a ladies house was soooo bad they found not 1 but 2 dead cats buried under all her crap! How sad is that to have to dead cats in your house and have no idea.
Watching this show defiantly motivates me to get up and clean out my closets lol!
Set your Tivo to Hoarders on A&E I swear you will be scraping your jaw off the floor!!!

Decorating Insperations

My husband agreed to let me order the counter top paint and try to Faux finish the countertops to look like granite. I did a test run on a piece of cardboard and decided its a NO GO!! I am just going to have to save my pennies for the real thing!

I am on a HUGE decorating kick! I have been surfing the Internet looking for ideas, here are some pics of rooms I like..... Do you recognize this room from Extreme home makeover a couple weeks ago.....I love this Living room, Its Classy, young, eclectic and Fun!!!

I love the light colors in this next living room but most of all the trim work, I really want to do this trim around my fireplace to fancy it up a little.....
This bathroom along with the next several picture I cam across on one of my Fav Blogs DIY Show Off. I LOVE the horizontal strips.....

This is my current project for the wall between my laundry room and masterbedroom door...
This Idea also of the DIY blog I LOVE! but instead of using it a book shelf I would use the to hold frames with Black& White pics.....
This Bedroom also off Extreme Home Makeover a couple weeks ago is just dreamy..... I found the excact bedspread at Target for only $80 SCORE!

Finally this last Idea for my laundry room I got from Young House Love, defiantly a must read blog! this is such a simple solution for hiding all the junk on my laundry room shelves....

I better get to work, I have got lots to do!!!!!

An Interesting Twist on Chocolate!

Yesterday a client of mine brought me the most interesting chocolate bar I have ever eaten or seen! When she first handed me the bacon chocolate bar by VosgesI thought it was a joke but apparently not, these puppies sell for $7.50 a bar. I sampled it just cause I don't know when I will ever have an opportunity to try something so strange again! What does it taste like you ask, well exactly what it says bacon and chocolate.

Don't get me wrong I love Bacon and I love Chocolate but the two should NEVER be mixed. I am usefully a person who enjoys sweets with my salty, there is nothing more yummy than dipping french fries in a frosty but this is taking it to a totally new level of strange. I am sure there is someone out there who thinks this is brilliant but I think Ill pass next time...YUK!
