Slight Delay

This is as far as I have gotten on the half bath make over. First I went to get another gallon of paint and they were out of the one tint they needed to make the color. Then the next day baby girl decided that she was going to have tummy troubles. After a very long day and little sleep I made this make shift sanctuary for her. That didn't go smoothly either. The darn baby gate was too wide for the door so I just ended up screwing the darn thing into the door frame. Yeah, maybe a little extreme but quite fixable. I was going off of three hours sleep so it was my best solution. 
As for Miss Savannah after I went thru all the trouble she never had any more issues and is doing fine. As matter of fact she went to bed last night at 10 pm and didn't get up till 5 am!! I was one happy mama! She is doing so great that she is now living the life of a sock thief and runs into the laundry to steal every sock she can find. Its quite comical.

Since the bath is on hold and now that the garage is cleaned out Littliest and I went out to the antique shop here in town to pick up some paint. I'll share that outing tomorrow.

Tonight is our first night of fall temps!! It is suppose to be 63 and 80s during the day. I can not wait! Just maybe I can get in the mood to pull out my fall decor.

Hope your weekend is going well!

Treasure Hunt Thursday #72 & Highlights

Busy morning this has turned out to be but I wanted to make sure to get THT up for y'all!
Here are a few highlights from last week party.
Shirley over at Hospitality Designs shared this fabulous treasure that even her hubby loves!
Audrey over at Elegant Economies shared this beautiful vignette.
Cloches & Lavender shared their Gesso pots.
Kayboo Creations shared their fabulous Union Jack dresser and showed us step by step how she made it.

As always thank you to all who partied last week! I am so truly honored to have such talent partying at my place! If you were featured please feel free to grab the "I've Been Featured" button!:) I have the newly updated button with html code on my sidebar! 

 What would be a HUGE help and encourage more comments not just from me but others as well would be for everybody to take off their required verification codes for leaving a comment. This seems to take just a few seconds of time but when you have to do it on 30 or more blogs it takes up a TON of time. Last week most everybody had turned off their Word Verification which made it so much easier for me to stop by everybody's links! Thank you!

Now on to this weeks party! 
As with all parties there are the normal rules. You must link back to From My Front Porch To Yours in your THT POST. Just common courtesy. If ya don't link back ya don't get to party. Only link up to your Treasure Hunt Thursday post and NOT your blog homepage. Please No advertising and PLEASE NO MORE than 3 links from the SAME party goer. Also NO MORE linking up to your own link parties. I am seeing more and more link ups of just people promoting their own linky parties. I know it takes time to go back and make a separate post to join the party but it is just the polite thing to do. If you find your post deleted it is not because I am a meany, I just have to make sure the rules are being followed. You can save some of your posts for the following weeks party!Please only link up new posts and not posts that you linked up the week before.Also be sure to visit at least the link before you and after you to just say Hi! It makes partying all the more fun! If you are new around here I would love it if ya become a follower!:)

Garage Loving

There once was a house on a quiet street. It was a charming house with pretty garage doors.
 Nobody could imagine what lurked just beyond those doors! Q in scary theme music!;)
Believe it or not this was our garage. It had gotten so bad you could barely walk thru it and The Hubster was embarrassed every time we opened the doors.  The Nana & The Papa came in town so we decided to take the challenge head on and get it all cleaned out.

Reactions from the neighbors were quite humorous. One lady walked by just shaking her head and others stopped by thinking we were having a garage sale. It only took an hour to clear it all out which was not bad.
In the end we had multiple moving boxes filled with trash as well as 6 trash cans loaded up and umpteen  boxes for recycle. You literally would have thought we were Sanford & Son. 
 This is what got kicked to the curb out of my project  pile. The Nana laughed and said " Hey now that's a house we would pull over at and pick thru". So true but I HAD to let some of it go. I posted it on FB and a local lady who follows me came by and picked it up. She was thrilled and it made me happy to think that it made her happy.
 We got up and were out in the garage at 7 am before the100 degree heat set in. It would have been nice to have been able to wait till cooler weather but I had NO WHERE to work so it had to be done.
It took us 6 hours from start to finish but well worth it in the end! I am in LOVE with our garage now.
Here is where we would just pile all of my treasures waiting to be made over. There was no moving around here.
This is what it looks like today. Plenty of room to paint and play!
There are still a few things we need to do like hang some peg board so I can get all of my seasonal wreaths off the shelving.
The important stuff is all complete though and now we can actually get our bikes in and out of the garage. It broke my heart every time the boys would ask to ride and I would have to tell them no.
Now everything has a place! I am one happy mama, so please if you are a neighbor and catch glimpses of me dancing away out in the garage  just ignore me and drive on by. I just can't resist doing a happy dance when I go out there!;)
Before I go I need yall's opinion. I literally have had this radio cabinet for over two years. It has patiently waited for a make over and I have tossed about making it into a wine cabinet though we do not drink wine or making it pretty and using it in my sewing room for my fabric. The question remains on what to do with that space at the bottom. Any ideas?

Thanx for stopping by and have a great day! I am off to do a little dancing!;)

Our Half Bath

Happy Labor Day all! I hope everybody is having a great day with friends and family. We are just hanging out  here at the house and well one thing led to another and I am in the middle of yet another project.
This is our tiny half bath. Sorry for the poor pics. It is very hard to get good pics of this space because it is so small. The bath use to all be the brownish color but a few years back I added the blue wall to try and brighten things up in here since there is no window.

I had also changed the light fixture out from the builders grade. Even with the changes I have not loved this space. 
So today I decide instead of hemming and hawing about what I was going to do to the space I was just going to do it. First came the mirror. Seems they put it up before they painted in here. Not surprising.
Then I spent 15 minutes taking this bird decal off the wall. I still have one more to go.
I have gotten a bit further so be sure to stop back later in the week.
