Five For Friday

1. Have you seen all the CHA coverage this week? Seriously I am in love with so much of it. I am already mentally planning my December Daily album. I am loving the Crate paper and Studio Calico holiday lines.

2. Centsational Girl had a great round up of inspiring posts on Better Homes & Gardens this week. Makes me want to DIY EVERYTHING as usual.

3. Speaking of DIY-when Friday approaches I get so excited for Saturday morning. Garage sales abound around here on Saturday and I've hit the jackpot lately at my local garage sales. I love a good garage sale because you can get something for nothing and DIY the crap out of it. This past weekend I found a side table, a little jewelery table and a bunch of little decorating items. I've been DIYing all week to finish these pieces. Here's a few pieces I've been working on-


Stay tuned for the 'afters'.

4.We were lucky enough to see the new Batman movie 'The Dark Knight Rises' last night at a special screening that M won tickets to. Frankly, it was amazing. I LOVED it and now I have to go back and watch the other two again. If you like action you'll probably love this movie. It was so good.

5. I'm looking forward to the weekend. We don't have many plans but I just like having M at home with me. He's my favourite.



  1. So the Batman movie wasn't too dark? I've been hearing so much about it...not even sure if I want to see it!!

    As for CHA, yeah I'm in trouble. But I say that every show! :)

    1. Nope. Not nearly as dark as the others. My husband thought it was even a little cheesy. That being said I'm not sure I would bring a young child to it either- the villain is scary.

  2. Great post. I can't wait to see your finished pieces. I love the legs on that table.

  3. Keep us posted on the "afters"!

  4. Can't wait to see the final results of these. I think my sister had that same art deco vanity growing up. (it was painted white with black - eww the eighties, ruined everything)
