What I've been up to...

Long time no post! As you can see, I've had a power tool or an organizer in my hands almost everyday in the last week or two!

I found this jewelry box at a 70% off sale after Christmas and it serves my dresser rather well. It holds my jewelry and *look!* you can actually see the top of my dresser now!

Ah! A nice new shower head for the kids' bathroom. This will help a lot when I wash and rinse Dabney's hair! Thanks Dad for all your good advice when it came to installation!

This is my new project- I really love it. I heard recently that your house should reflect your personality. And what did I want my house to say about me? That I love simple things and I want and strive towards an orderly house and most of all I love my family. I just installed another rod yesterday a little further down on the stairs for more pictures.

I found this curtain rod recently and it was so cheap (really, like under $4) I just had to buy it. It matches the living room and it was long too- just like I needed- it fits over the living room window where it currently resides. It takes the place of the black rod- which never really fit in the room.

You can't see it very well, but this black curtain rod I think looks much better here in David's room- the new rod takes it's old place in the living room.

I made this sign forDabney's room. It's one of the most comforting verses in the Bible, for me. It says "When you lie down you will not be afraid, Yes, when you lie down your sleep will be sweet. Proverbs 3:24". It has lightning bugs on it and when I finished it, Dabney said, "Oh! Good job Mama!" (That's my foot in the lower right corner, if you are wondering)

Great job on the makeover. You need to go on HGTV!

Good job Mandie! The shower curtain was especially impressive.

I have to say-that photo rod was fabulous and here is the (not so surprising thing) I JUST this past weekend was telling my sister how I wanted to do this VERY same thing with MY photos, I just hadn't found any vintage-looking frames yet. How weird is that!?!?

Your house is lovely. And I LOVE the sign for Dabney. It is so important to surround our children with scripture. What a great way to do that. Thank you for the reminder and motivation!
