2014: Interesting Already!

16 Feb

2014, we are two months in and you are interesting already~

I turned 40 and it feels just like 39…except for a couple of new gray hairs.

I got a mini pony, his name is Tater. Every morning, when he sees me coming out of the house, he gallops across the pasture to say “Hi” and also to find out if I have a carrot in my pocket. He is a noble steed.

I finally got a vintage sofa. It has pink and white stripes and carved roses. What else do I need to say.

I made candy glass for a Frozen birthday cake for my daughter without a candy thermometer and it turned out PERFECT and I didn’t burn off any skin with the 300 degree sugar. Will never be able to repeat that victory.

I  also made a Rodarte celestial hair clip, now I can pretend to be a supermodel! You can buy an original for $600.00 or make one for $10.00. Your choice.

 Might I suggest the cheaper route, here’s what you need :photo-821

 Small and large stars, a hair clip or comb, gold wire, and some gold spray paint. There are some videos and tutorials out there, just Google DIY Rodarte Clip, but I kinda just winged it when I did mine.

Spray paint your stars , cut long pieces of wire, alternate wrapping the wire around large and small stars,attach to hair clip or comb in whatever way looks good to you. Easy peezy and super chic!

Got some awesome gold Art Craft cat eyeglasses from the 50s. Just need to have my prescrip put in them and I will be able to see T.V. again.

We just had a freakish ice storm, followed by days of power loss and then we had an earthquake. Which one of you slapped a curse on S.C. {fess up now and we’ll go easy on ya}. I almost burnt my house down trying to cook in my fireplace. I don’t like pioneering.

Besides my normal mama and wife duties, I’ve also been standing out in the freezing cold at Estate Sales treasure hunting for my Etsy shop. Fun Stuff. 

Things I’ve recently purchased:

purchase

Bacon tee from Old Navy, bracelet from Dillards, fancy shirt from one of those stores at the mall that you never bothered to know the name of ???? and some root concealer from Sephora, you did see that I turned 40, this stuff works, sister.

Latest food addiction:

Candied bacon, I think I had a dream about it. Good thing I have associated guilt with my bacon consumption or I’d be a real porker. {haha} Yes, I went there.

I have yet to start the healthy eating phase of 2014.

Its gonna be a good year.

How’s it going for you?

What In The World Have I Been Doing?

14 Nov

Well, I will tell ya…

I have been extremely busy scoping out treasures for my Etsy shop lately, drove an hour and a half yesterday towards Atlanta for a huge estate sale, came back with some excellent stuff!

I really haven’t been eating anything too tasty recently. I did however try some moonshine {only in the South} at a restaurant, which was weird, but enjoyable and…NO…I did not get drunk-fied and no I will not be constructing a homemade still on my property anytime soon, but I’d certainly drink it again if it becomes available.

I ran/walked my first Run or Dye 5K and didn’t “dye”! Thas good.

I scored a Carol Bennett Liberty House Dress at the Goodwill…

I got some cute jewelry at Rue 21 for 2 bucks a piece.

And last but not least, I have been wearing this hat on my head every night while I sleep! What…its warm. My husband says I look like the guy from Fat Albert that says Obee Kaybee or a jelly fish. In fact, I am wearing this hat as we speak.photo-707

So that about sums it up. Hope you have been having as much fun as I am lately. If not, start now.

Pickled Feet and Fashion

16 May

Oh, it’s a fine Monday! I woke up to the birds singing and the sun shining and found that my feet and hands were back to their normal size again, well thank goodness!

I don’t like to gripe, okay, sometimes I do,  but the amount of salt in restaurant food is getting down right ridiculous!  Which brings me to an important question of the day,  Is there a government conspiracy or some evil mastermind curling a mustache somewhere with a plot to take over the world by pickling us all one at a time?

How much salt are these folks really using in my tasty restaurant cooked meal and is it really necessary? Next time I feel like going out to dinner, I think I’ll just stay home and eat a shaker full of salt. Do you have the sneaking suspicion you’re being pickled as well?

Okay, I’m done whining,  check out this pink fedora I scored at H&M and this black flower bracelet I got from Charming Charlie this weekend. Love these stores!
