1st Timer at Canton

Yesterday a few of my fellow 7th grade teachers and I headed out to the fun that is Canton!  We were so excited to just walk around and see everything.  I had nothing in mind to buy, just if anything jumped out at me.  Which, was great because I wasn’t stressed about finding that perfect item.  It was pretty hot outside, mid 90’s I think, but at least there was a slight breeze, so we didn’t feel like death on a stick.  It was acres and acres and acres of funness!

Being indoors was LOVELY!  Although, at times it was hotter inside than outside.

This guys were so much fun!  I wish you could see that everything dealt with rocks… so neat!

How fun is this place?!

So, I literally bought one thing for me and one thing for my nephew’s big boy room.  His duvet has owls in it and I found these guys and thought cute cute!  Jen can paint them or keep them as is.

(They are cuter in person, promise!)  I got these decor balls (haha sounds awful.. or maybe my mind is in the gutter?) that are green and I just loved for some reason.  Here is what I did with them.  I also added in some potpourri items that I wasn’t using to complete the look.  All in all it cost less than $20!  Splendid!

I have two more that I am not quite sure what I should do with.  I am sure I will figure it out.  But I like how it turned out!  Here are a few pictures of Shari, Kerri, Angela, and myself.  I love my SMS buddies!!

Angela hit the jackpot and found the exact headboard that she was looking for for her son’s bedroom and it was only $10!!  She also got the chair and stool to paint to match his new train themed bedroom.  And, how fun is her hat?!

Jeremy drove me around yesterday after I got back from Canton to try to find plates to put on the chargers in the dining room.  I just needed to find something and I was tired of looking for white freaking plates!  They were not white enough and I think Jeremy was getting a tad annoyed with this.  As he would say, “You get something in your head and you don’t even know if you will ever be able to find it.”  True, but I always come up with something!  Crate and Barrel had these plates that were super different and I just had to get them!

I like that I can use these plates with ANY color and they will last a long time.  The dining room table looks better, but I still have things to do.  It will have to wait though because I need to do touch paint in almost every room!  I am having a little gathering in a few weeks and I feel like I have so much to do.  Who wants to come and do a deep clean at my house?! :)
