Crafty Momma Time

I don't know about y'all, but since we've had kids, we have transformed more spaces and organized more closets in hopes of putting toys somewhere unseen. We even converted our old patio room into a toy room after Kara was born. I have searched yard sales and scoured Craigslist/ local facebook sell & trade pages for good things to buy at a inexpensive price.  I repurpose things quite often.
So when I came across this little nugget at the Dollar Tree I just couldn't resist.  I took an old desk and chairs that I had purchased at a yard sale a few years back  and decided that I was going to repurpose it for Kara's room. She's recently got really interested in playing with LEGOs but we make her stay in her room to play with them since the pieces and parts are a little small to be around Miss Evy. This little play set was a perfect addition to her "pretty in pink" room.
The top to this table was a generic toy green. So I cleaned it up, sanded it some, taped off the edges and sprayed it pink. Took a total of about 15 minutes. Then I added the cute sticker decal. Kara came home from school, saw it, and said "It's so cute momma!"
Table and chairs: yard sale find $10
Spray paint: found in garage :-)
Cute Owl Decal: Dollar Tree $1

Labor Day Weekend: Blue Ridge Mountains

This {lucky} family got to get away for a brief mini vacation over the Labor Day holiday. Hunter' parents  invited us along to a nice cabin overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains in Georgia. We were greeted with a spectacular views and a beautifully decorated cabin nestled high in God's beautiful country.

Our weekend consisted of good food, lounging in a hot tub, picnic at a park, and the start of college football. Traveling with a four year old and an almost 9 month old doesn't allow much rest for this momma, but enjoying time with my family is always a pastime I look foward to in any setting.

Hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday. GO NOLES!

Till Next Time!
