Fix You

Yes, yes, yes. I've been a negligent blogger. But now I'm a repentant negligent blogger. So, y'all all have to practice forgiveness and completely forget the previous sentences! OK, done.

But, I have a good excuse for my negligence. (What negligence? You told us to forget those sentences!) Here is what I've been up too. First off, my updated fall arrangement. (I'm so lucky to have a Hobby Lobby open down the street from my house!)

I've wanted mirrors underneath the arrangement for a year, now. But it took me a while to figure out how to get that done. Problem solved with candle holders!

Next, my oldest daughter's room. Well, some of it.And here is a close up of the maps over her bed. Just $13 dollars! Thanks PB Teen for the inspiration!

And, finally, the slipcover that I mentioned in a previous blog about biting off more than I can chew! I'm very proud of this project, as it only cost me $15 dollars! We found the wing chair at a garage sale, and I recovered it with left over fabric. I even got the seller to through in the yellow toile pillow in for free! Yea me! (Also, the door in the background was the thing that I painted preparing for Mavens! I've been a busy bee! :D ) And, yes, that is a Jane Austen Action Figure in the background! Aren't you all jealous? ;)

So, now you can see what I've been up to. I'm a little crest fallen as I don't have any projects in the workings right now. I can actually say that I've done everything on my list! :O I guess I'll just have to make a new one!

A special thanks goes to Laurie for letting me borrow her camera and then emailing me the pics! I really need to get my camera fixed!

I love your seasonal centerpiece idea. What a fun thing to do! Copying is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

You did a great job with the chair, much nicer then my store bought slip cover I must say. You are really a talented decorator. :)

Negligent? I feel good if I post once a week, and my project list will never be done. I'm too indecisive. I am proud of you, everything looks fab.

It all looks wonderful! Unfortunately, most of my projects are on the back burner...
