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!
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?! :)
