Lots of Inventory...Lots of Love

Here are just a few things I have gathered up on recent garage sale hunts.  I have two large silver trays that would dress up any sideboard, small tins to store your JUNK!, and lots of sconces in many colors and sizes.

I have had this queen headboard for awhile and finally stumbled upon a nightstand to make a complete bed set.

I chose a neutral color that would compliment any palette.  This headboard is a full/queen.

The nightstand was in poor shape!

Also in a neutral to match the headboard.

Because of lighting in this room, the two pieces appear to be painted in different colors.  I assure you they are painted in the same :)

This was my score of the week, a little telephone table for an entryway.

I chose my favorite colors these days, a mix of Provence and Duck Egg ASCP.

I tried a new crackle technique on the drawers. 

 I wasn't sure I liked it right away, but I've decided it looks pretty good!

So, my daughter had her Sweet Sixteen party this weekend.....

Where did the time go?

Wasn't it just yesterday when she left a note on my pillow

as she headed off to her first day of  kindergarten? 

I know the note is stashed away amongst many treasured memories,

but I still vividly recall how my heart felt when I read it.

Do you know the feeling I'm talking about?

The one where you aren't sure if your heart can hold

anymore love for this amazing being...

sniff, sniff.

I need a tissue.

We had nine 16-year-old girls at the house for a taco bar dinner and then we headed to the beach for volleyball.  These girls are wonderful friends, some of which my daughter has known since she was two.  It has been such a joy to see these friendships continue to grow. 

We headed back to the house for a night of birthday cake, Italian sodas, games, movies, laughs and maybe just an hour or two of sleep...I still don't know why people call them 'sleepovers'.


Even on a cloudy evening, The Pacific Northwest is breathtaking!

Eventually our Summer will arrive, but in meantime I hope you all are out enjoying whatever it is that makes you happy!
