Well I am a day late at announcing the Winner for my May giveaway
Please join me in telling Linda of ParkersParadise congratulations on winning
The five flowers and Bird Tucks
I have been cleaning please note my tiny little one bedroom house is not a fancy
Mansion but it is home none the less so I am going to share some pictures so
That I can boast about some swaps I have recently gotten
Our bathroom is so small there is no way to get a picture
When we got this place I wondered how on earth I would ever store anything in this bathroom, there is no linen closet and all the storage there is was the vanity??
so my towels have always been folded and stacked on the back of the toilet and
on top of my washer!!
So I had purchased a couple of shelves from Carol of The Firecracker Kid
The above shelf is also a towel bar
This one hangs just inside my door
I will be doing some decorating and putting things away in better out of sight places
soon because I just swapped with Carol for
The Cabinet over the toilet and the cubby on my toilet lid
Now I need to go and get my brown and red hand towels and wash cloths
that is what the cubby will hold
If you have never purchased from Carol and Timmy's Etsy Shop
you really need to check them out, I gave Carol the size I needed to make this cabinet
work for us and it is amazing it actually looks like it is built in
Sorry I can not get a good picture I tried *yes* even by standing in my bathtub LOL
Now my towels are neatly folded under the vanity
The penny Runner I swapped for from Michelle of Grannies Pantry
Now has a home on top of the cubby my colors in this bathroom will be
brown, black and red
I also did a swap with Tracy of the Pairie Patch
for some of her Hand made soaps that are pictured in the bowl I placed a couple in
my kitchen by my sink as well, Oh they smell heavenly and are wonderful
* the spots you see on some of my pictures is from my camera*
Oh how I need a new one so bad!!
I actually put my leaf in my Table and moved all of my crafting things
out of there, now all that is here is my sewing machine, I am looking for a desk with a hutch so I can move it to the bedroom as well
Our next project is to do a shelf above this window
*Well that and the fact that we have began the task of covering out deck outside*
More of Tracy's Soaps in a bowl and ignore the hummingbird feeder that I need to fill
And also another of Carols creations the Nesting Box
My sink and dishwasher sit in this island that divides the living room from the kitchen
When I say small I mean small we have less then 800 square feet but it is perfect for us
I will be replacing the blinds with the large slat wood blinds this year
I have got to touch this entertainment center up it had bad dings on it
so we touch painted and now I have to put a coat of poly on the entire things
And don't you just love the scratch on my TV, hubby swatted a fly last year!!
But we are getting a larger TV that will fill the spot up
And there you have it another cabinet on top from Carol
My things are all mismatched and that is fine with me The old minnow bucket use to
be my dad's eventually I hope to have the entire living room done in fishing decor
After all we live at the lake and if we aren't at home you can find us at the water!!
Oh that's right and this is what Miss Shelby thinks about it all
This is what Shelby thinks about everything these days LOL
she had a rough night last night and we thought she was going to have puppies EARLY
This is what she has done all day today poor baby is miserable
10 more days and we will have little shelby's!!!
and we hope this is where she will be having those babies at????
This is why I had to move things around today so I could find a place for her cage
she normally lays on top of the Old Trunk on her soft bed under the window and looks
outside, but now that is moved and I do not think she is happy about it at all!
No pictures of the bedroom today because I need to jump off of here and perform a miracle before hubby gets home from work this evening
OH my I have piles of crafting supplies back there and have no idea how I am
going to remotely find a place to put them at LOL
Congrats again to Linda on winning the giveaway
