Editing Photos

I could sit and play on Picnik all day long.  Editing photos is so fun and can take an image and really make it something special.  Here are a few pictures I took today during our Easter get together with family.

Madeline is 7 months.

She is a beautiful baby in any light!

Inspire Me Thursday **Sugar Swings! Serve Some**

Welcome to my first
 Inspire Me Thursday! 

I am constantly bookmarking some really cool craft, cooking and home decor projects that stop me in my tracks, so why not feature some of them each week.   

This craft made me laugh and inspired me to think way outside the box. 
My son Riley and my friends husband Chris are serious Star Wars NUTS! 
 I knew this was something they would love...

Sugar Swings! Serve Some made some seriously cool Peep Pops for Easter. I love Peeps, who doesn't?  Take Bunny Peeps, a sucker stick, dip in melted white candy wafers, and add some sprinkle and you have a yummy Easter treat. 

 But this mom took it up a notch and made Peep Trooper Pops!
Are you kidding me???

These are so stinking cute!
I can't think of a little (or big) boy that wouldn't want these for a birthday party!
Go visit Sugar Swings! Serve Some for the full post. 
Stick around and see all her other amazing sugar creations, you will not be disappointed!

My favorite Cupboard- The China Cabinet

There is nothing more I love than creating fun vignettes inside my china cabinet.  This sweet little craigslist find has given me hours of enjoyment.  I change out my display's ever few months.  I like mixing and matching patterns and adding sometimes the unexpected.

I recently purchased Nortake Buttercup pattern.  I first saw it in an antique store in town.  I knew it had to be mine.  Ebay offered the perfect price and it now finds a happy home in my cabinet.  This cabinet also holds some other finds that I cherish!

A Fresh Face Lift

I am always amazed at how paint can change the life of piece of furniture or accessory.  Something old or boring has the chance to become outstanding and really add life to a space.  I have had this tray on my  coffee table for over 7 years now.  I found the tray on clearance at Target and had to have it.  It has always blended in with the finish of the table. Boring!!  Not any more, you may actually remember this little tray now.

Here it is before.  You may have to look hard!

And now after some white paint, distressed and green highlights:

A much needed pop of color!
So what do you think?
