Around the House...

Happy Monday, everyone! 
 I was in the midst of attempting to write a quick post about my boys, but it was getting long. 
I'll go back to that one tonight.  In the meantime, here's a peek at what I've been up to around the house...
Remember this post?
Well, I went ahead and made a big long pillow for our family room sofa. 
I love it.  Charlie does not.  He keeps taking it off the couch and then using his pretend leaf blower to move it all around the house.  Must be the fallish colors and the leaf print.  Kinda funny. Very Cute.
I also made a smaller pillow out of a little animal print I found at Hobby Lobby on clearance.

And last, here's a sneak peek at our dining room cupboard, which was primed this weekend, and the new hardware I've ordered to complete its transformation. 
I did have a mini crisis over the color. I even went out and bought 5 new paint samples this morning.
Finally I had Jimmy help me bring part of the cupboard back in the house.
Once it was in the dining room, I breathed a sigh of relief.
It looks perfect.  I need to trust my instincts.
The color just looked off in the garage.
OK, I must run.
Sorry, not much of a post, but we are closing in on 2:00
and I must get ready before little man gets up from his nap.
Hope your week is off to a good start!


  1. Send your little leaf blower my way. We still have them falling and I'm getting a tad tired
    Love the pillows and their prints. Shall I put my order in now? :)

    I can't wait to see the finished project.
