I would like to thank Kendall at Finesse Your Nest for doing a little write-up and featuring me and my blog on Feature a Newbie Wednesday! If you want great ideas for your home you need to check her blog out. She is great at re-purposing found objects (you won't believe what she finds in the trash) and creating a wonderful home without spending much. 

Thanks Kendall!

I have also had a busy week. I am getting ready to head out of town to Hawaii for a daughter's track team 12 day training camp trip. I was asked to chaperone and well - gosh darn it -  it is a tough job but somebody has to do it. 

I know life is rough.

 Please don't feel sorry for me.

 I am still going to post how I made the faux roman blinds and chalkboard window for my laundry room. I know I said I would post last week but life has a funny way of getting in the way! 


  1. Hey Barbara...I'll head over to finesse your nest pronto, I just wanted to say hello, congrats! and have a wonderful trip.

  2. Wow, wish my kid's training camps were in Hawaii!


Let's chat...
