Face Lift???

Since it is the New Year I decided some things needed changing around here. Seeing as I am no way considering a face lift...had ya going didn't I....I decided to freshen things up a bit. I am loving the new blog template. I even have my next one picked out!;) I also now have an e signature. I think that is what it called but not sure. You can see it at the end of this here post.

Today I enjoyed my mommy time and spent an hour and half at HobLob. Perused the 66% off isles. They still had the pears I put in my cart last week but took back out. I figured since they were still there a week later they must have been waiting on me!;) I am going to faux um. The candlestick was just $10. I am thinking it will go in the master bath by the tub. I have had my eye on that there bunny for several weeks now and since she and her partner in crime were 50% off I decided she could come home with me. Next time I will get the other one....mind you next time may be tomorrow. HA! I also got those adorable little Gnomes. I am going to just place them around the house in odd places. I just think they are too stinking cute. The other is a project I am working on. All I can say right now is so far not so good. All in all it is soo much fun spending Christmas money!

Ahh yes, another area that got some freshening up was this here art niche. Never had one and had no idea what I was going to do with one. This is how it looked when we moved in.

This is how the niche looked several weeks after we moved in. Oh what paint to choose? I had decided that the boys birth announcements were going to hang in the niche and asked my mom to mail me her frame for Littliest's announcement that matches Oldest's. That never happened.

So last night after my bath I just came up with this out of the blue. I figured it was better than nothing and all for less than $13 once I added it all up though I already owned all of it. Remember that is the $1 frame from last week at HobLob. The poly resin thingy at the top had been on the fireplace mantel. I am kinda not digging the empty space below the frame but maybe I can think of something to do to it or maybe I can teach myself to leave it well enough alone. Oh and believe it or not the niche is a differ color than the color it originally was when we moved in! No really it is I promise. The Hubster doesn't buy it either!;)
Hope you week is going well!


  1. Pamela!!! Oh, you are just not going to believe it but I have that same archy thingy but in my upstairs hallway. OK, honey, this just gets weirder and weirder how much we have in common.

    My archy thingy is not flat inside it It was finished out to fit the nook of the closet in the bedroom behind it. I've never been able to decorate it and my girls just use it to put junk on, usually. I like your flat wall much better and just went to look at my archy thingy. It would be easy to put up a faux wall so that I can hang stuff. Hubby is going to love me when he wakes up this morning with another project added to his list!

    Love all your new finds and your new blog clothes. I wish we had a hobby lobby here.

  2. I love your nook!

    It's nice to "meet" you - I found you over at Texas Blogging Gals.

  3. I love the rabbit you bought,Hobby Lobby is one of my favorite stores! I like you signature, how did you do that?

  4. Thanx Michelle! I think I may go and get the other one tomorrow if the weather holds out. My e signature I had done by the gal who did the graphics for my website. Her name is Maree and here is her Etsy link. She has two options for one. One was I think $10 and then one just $3.

  5. Hi Pamela....I LIKE your kind of facelift. It's always fun to tweak and you did a great job with you niche :) Happy New Year from Houston....I found you on the Texas Blogging Gals. Great to have found you and your cute blog. :)

  6. I'm a Hobby Lobby junkie. I have been eyeing those same pears. I really like how you decorated the niche. I like the different layers...frame upon frame.
