Pink is My Signature Color

"My colors are blush and bashful."
"Her colors are pink and pink."
"My colors are blush and bashful, Mama!"
In case you do not recognize the lines, they are from one of my all time favorite movies, Steel Magnolias.  I watch that movie at least five times a year and refer to it almost weekly.  When someone at work is frustrated I grab a helpless, innocent co-worker and say, “Here! Take a whack at Ouiser!”  Of course we all break out in laughter.  In addition, lucky me that my hubby’s favorite chick flick is Steel Magnolias too.  (rut roh he just might kill me for that confession) He just loves that scene when Inell discovers that there is beer in her Frigidaire.  It gets him rolling every time.

Yes, I LOVE pink and I choose it over any color 99.9% of the time.  I grew up with all sorts of pink things from toothbrushes, alarm clocks, trashcans, phone, house slippers, purses, wallets, furniture, carpet, curtains, etc.  When I lived at home with my parents, my entire room was pink.  Pink on top of pink.  It was my haven, my comfort zone, my getaway, and inspiration.  My bedroom was small about 8’x10’ therefore it was a cozy, pink haven.  My first car was a Geo Storm that was a pretty teal green BUT it had pink pinstripes on it.  My wedding colors were just like Julia’s in Steel Magnolias, pink and pink.  J  I had eight bridesmaids (yes, I know) and all were pretty in pink.  Now I have a daughter and I must say that I have trained brainwashed coached her well when it comes to all things pink.  I would say that 75% of her wardrobe consists of some kind of pink item.  I can gleefully report that pink is her color of choice.  She makes me proud.  It’s the little things folks.  The little things that tickle me pink.  J

A couple of months ago I came across this:

Right away, I told my hubby that I wanted a pink kitchen.  I mean, why not?  After all, I am the lady of the house and I do spend quite a bit of time in there feeding my family.  I quickly started brainstorming and I have a plan to convert my current kitchen into my pink dream kitchen.  I.AM.TOO.EXCITED. Of course I will share that transformation with you all once it is complete but to be honest I am sure it will take a few months or so.  That darn busy life of ours.

Meanwhile take a look at some of the pink projects that catch me eye when I blog hop.

*A pink kitchenette and cute little birdies that make a playroom pop over at Sixty-Fifth Avenue. Adorbs.

Those are just a few of the pretty in pink things that make me stop and say "ooooh what is this?"
Yes, I love pink and it will always be my signature color.  I grew up with it and plan to grow old with it. :)

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…
