Guest Room Update

Sharing a few photos from the guest room, it's still slowly creeping together
seems like I am always changing or adding something 
This is one space where I feel like I can do whatever I want, so many ideas
so little time on yeah and money right ... ugh

This old tin box is one of my favorites, It was my grandmothers

Love this old window shelf my brother made me, not sure where to hang it yet so it serves as a shelf/nightstand in the guest room

Who doesn't love old books,
 I love a good stack of old books with decorated spines and colorful covers

Sucker for anything owl, these were in Daltons room and I since taken them over

Old Martha Stewart quilt and I love this bedding was in our master but I needed a change., I think it goes good with the blue bird prints

Favorite Flea Market Find

Saw an article in my favorite issue of Country Living May 2013 Issue Thrifty & Chic. Which had tons of great home tours, Yard Sale Tips & Tricks
DIY Decorating on a Dime (right up my alley)

Inside was a reader write in section about Flea Market Finds
Where you could right in or share it on their blog
I immediately thought of my favorite find, A Blue Pepsi Cooler
This really caught my eye, and it was a birthday present of sorts too
You don't really see many in this color
Plus I like Pepsi better than Coke anyway, You do to right ?

My Cooler holds a Glass Pepsi bottle collection
Many thanks to my brother (King Bottle Collector) for those 

I have struggled with a place to display, that the kids wouldn't try to ride it 
or try to pick it up, I decided to attach some floor pads on the bottom of it
and put it in the entry way. So far so good, It's been there a good couple of months and no one has messed with it.

This bench is another favorite, Was my grandparents and
my father passed it down to my. I distressed the blue paint some
Thought about painting the blue a different color but decided against it in the long run, I am loving the blue
I have decorated it with a few of my favorite throw pillows
Including the Mammy Vintage Tea Towel Pillow, That Tea Towel was in my
shop forever, No sales so I decided to repurpose it into a pillow
And now I don't think I can part with it..
I am sure I will change my mind, you never know

Happy Birthday To My Big Baby Boy Today!!! #2

We celebrated this Big Boy's Birthday this past weekend
while we had family in town., nothing fancy 
Just a few presents and a cake... poor guy

I can't believe how much he has grown, he's quite the character
He wants to do everything his sister does and thinks he is as big as she is sometimes. He's into anything trucks or tractors and of course Dinosaurs 
Everything is Rex this and Rex that

We were hoping to visit the beach today for some fun
but looks like rain has set in
But celebrating today with a pizza party yay!!
