A Tiny Before and After

As I was strolling through TJMaxx a couple weeks ago I saw a little bag of bright green moss. I love anything mossy so I had to pick it up. And let's face it, sometimes a little green can go along way....

Now back to my bag of green...

I continued to the back of the store to see what I could find to put my moss in.
This little guy appeared....

I loved the small size, texture and color of the cement pot. It's price of $7.99 also contributed to making it's way into my cart. Now I'm not a fan of the plastic green grass stuff in it but when I got home I pulled it right out and created this... 

And there you have it. My five minute $11 moss pot project.
Simple and cute.

March 2013

I think blogging break would be an understatement. Where do I begin?

For awhile now I've been wanting to do a catch up post with updated house pictures. I can't believe I still haven't shown you guys the kitchen yet. I have much more to share too!

But until then, I wanted to slice my blog silence and share some pictures from my phone I've taken over the last 6-8 months or so. Yes, this is going to be random, but I wanted to let you guys know I'm still here. :)

In no particular order...

We're still at it with house projects.... 

Captain Morgan stance while taping off the 2 story windows before painting... I really wonder what our neighbors think about us.

Moved some family to Nashville
(and brought along the tiger lillies we've been transferring since I was little... they have survived 3 states and many moves... so far they are liking TN soil just fine!)

Took some fun trips...  

 Snuck in some recreation...

Made a couple Craigslist purchases...
(I have a plan for these babies)

And found some other furniture additions...

Started seeing my sister every day... :) more on that later

And of course more house projects...

That's all for now folks.
Don't know when I'll be back, but I'll be back.

Anyone still out there?

Hi there!

Long time, no chat! As you can image my priorities have shifted lately, but I wanted to let you guys know that I'm still here! It has been a crazy few months but hubs and I are still trying to tackle some home projects this summer.

But first I want to thank you. I appreciate all of you that come to visit this little blog and want you know your emails and comments mean so much to me. Thank you, thank you for your support. This thing we call blogland is pretty awesome.

I'm going to make this short because I just wanted to check in and say,

Hello! It's been a while... I hope you all are doing well!

 Expect to hear more from me soon... I have some big updates!
