Spring Fever

 

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter filled with God and  family fun!

I have been busy with family, projects, organizing like crazy… and some gardening thrown in.

Spring cleaning fever is here!

Bathroom Stars 3 088

Our home has cute niches everywhere. This one is above our tub! (photos to follow)

This spa like atmosphere belongs to my two year old son! He tagged the  tub! We never get to use it..lol

Remember the dye project with the starfish? HERE

I love to frame old documents! This French deed dated 1829,

was framed in an old chippy black frame I found for 5 dollars.

You need to check out The Agoura Antique Mart 

the owner of this antique mart has the best eye for unique finds.

I always find great stuff there.

  46. You were reading my mind with this post. I surfed the net last night looking for wholesale coral and shells. After seeing your beautiful pictures, I'll be in the car bright and early on Sat. to go to the monthly antique market to get the best selection of sea treasures. Fingers crossed that my Florida source will be there. Thanks for the inspiration and needed kick in the butt. Have a great weekend.
