Spring Break Fun and Goodies...





















































Hi there...sorry I had no clue I would be gone so long! Spring Break hit and other misc. things in life came up and once again I am behind blogging. I wanted to share a few items I found the last couple of weeks....thrifting and clearanced out in some of my fave haunts. White tray from Target in clearance section. The tall glass cloche type thingy is from Tj's. The rest is thrifted from Goodwill. The matelasse shams are Restoration Hardware...2.99 for the pair...also some white pottery to add to my growing collection. My FAVE find though is the Waverly Ticking shower curtain (Target still carries it for a mere 32.99) I got mine for a mere 4.99...WHAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Cleaned her up and ironed it. Hung it today and did some cleaning in the bathroom. Thought I would share a few pics of it clean and primped a bit.
Also a few family pics of sonny boy and the dog....on our outing to the Oregon coast. Surf, sand, and clam chowder. Great combo. We flew son's kite for the first time...what childish fun! I threw in a few pics of a special order NEST banner I did for someone and a little tag I made last night. I have so much fun making these banners. Anyways that is all from me. I really over did it with the cleaning...please no snickers...I am exhausted. I have a few more orders to get done....so off to work I go again. As always XOXO, Cherry

I love that bathroom!! And I bet you had such fun kiting with your sweet, handsome son!! You are lucky he doesn't mind being on your blog. My oldest son will sometimes get real shy... so I have to be more sneaky!! :) The girls bogart the camera normally when I pull it out. I have to work harder for the boys... :) love your shower curtain!!! :)

Betsy said...

Love your style! Really neat idea for a Q-tip holder.

Everything is gorgeous. I really like the idea of the gravy bowl used for Qtips. Shower curtain, wow, what a deal. Thanks for sharing.

Love the bathroom, all clean and tidy...so glad you enjoyed your spring break, surf, sand and clam chowder sounds like a fabulous time!! Thanks for sharing all your great finds.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Welcome back! You were missed! More great ideas...that is one of the reasons that you were missed. I never thought to put Q-tips in an old china pitcher...that is one I will do. I also really like the shade of paint in your bathroom. The gold looks good in there with your shower curtain purchase. Truthfully, I like all of your new finds. Good looking guy on the beach, too.

Hi Cherry :)

Those pics make me miss the beach!

You found some really great deals! I went to the Goodwill here and it's awful. Either 400 bloggers live in my area and cleaned it out before I could get there or no one is giving up their stuff... grrr...

xo,
rue

Tammy said...

You have been busy! Love all your pictures. Looks like your son and the dog had a ton of fun! And you scored big time on your shower curtain!

Painter's Place said...

I love your bathroom. The color looks like what I am in the processing of painting my kitchen now. It's going slow though....

Rachel said...

Okay I want to come and live in your bathroom. Is that okay? :) Seriously it looks so fabulous in there. Great job and you so scored on your shower curtain. Lucky girl!!

As per spring break we did nothing.. Wait I take that back. Jentry was throwing up. Yeah we had a fun week off from school.

Coming over from Pineapple Hill. Love your blog!

welcome to lots of love said...

I loved your header first... then I knew I was really hooked when I spied the Wedgewood Edme platters hanging on your wall. I have the same pattern in a 12 piece place setting. Your decorating is wonderful... I'll be back again for sure.

Acorn Cottage said...

Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures. I love everything and am ready to move it. I need to ask a question:

Who makes the scalloped chip board you use for your hanging banners?

Curious crafter's need to know!

Thanks, Nancy

Nancy said...

Beautiful, inspirational pictures!!! Thanks for sharing them! I am going to go look again! Nancy

Barb said...

Love the green and black tag, and the nest banner.
I've been looking for that particular scallop punch and can't find it. Did you order it from a stamp company?
Thanks,
Barbara Jean

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Everytime I visit your blog I get all giddy inside and so inspired to decorate. You have just a lovely way of putting things all together. I also love the colors you choose for accents. Very serene and classy. Now what color are your bathroom walls? I wrote down the color you told me before, however I cannot find it....sad face and pouting lips...

Have a Happy Easter!
All of your pictures are just too cute!!!!

xoxo
Becky

Jules said...

Couldn't help but notice the Philosophy Sugar Cookie in your bathroom. I am a HUGE Philosophy fan and have way too much product. I like your decorating too!
