‘Unique’ Thrift Store Upcycle

I have a bit of an odd project to share with you today.  It’s a thrift store upcycle project, and you know I love those, but the end result is a bit odd (at least that’s what my hubby thinks).

It involves a old frame, teacup, a doorbell, and of course … spray paint.

Interested yet?

Well … I’ll save you the suspense.  Here she is:

$3 Fabric Napkins to {cute} Pom Pom Pillow Cover!

I have news!  Another project for the nursery is complete!  No … we haven’t finished painting (not even finished with the first coat).  No … we don’t even have the boys moved out of the nursery (because their room isn’t even remotely finished).

The baby may not have a room, however he or she now has a thrifty pom pom throw pillow!  Apparently, I’m really good at prioritizing what’s important (ha!).

I found some cute fabric napkins on clearance at Marshall’s the other week for $5.  I was thrilled!  Then I went to check out, and found out they were 40% off that price.  $3 … even better.  I mainly just liked the minty color and geometric pattern, and knew they would be great for something in the nursery.  Some yellow Pom Poms from JoAnn’s and 30 minutes of sewing later, I had a fun pillow cover for the nursery (that will exist one of these days … I hope).

Thomas The Train Party {Charlie’s 2nd Birthday}

The season of birthdays in our family has officially begun!! Charlie turned 2 on Saturday, and his cousin Jackson turned 5 last Monday, so we thought we’d have a Thomas The Train birthday party to celebrate both! Charlie’s favorite thing on earth right now is Thomas and all his train buddies. He could play trains all day long. He loves the movies, he loves the shows, he loves the books … he’s obsessed. He can name each character, and I’m pretty sure that the train names are half of his vocabulary right now.

He was actually pretty excited about his Thomas themed party (I wasn’t sure if he’d notice the theme). It was a wonderful weekend! The boys got to see all their grandparents, cousins, and aunt & uncles! And, as a fabulous bonus, the weather was beautiful (especially Sunday). I’m still exhausted, but I thought I’d share some pictures from the weekend.
