Sunglass Holder DIY

I saw this DIY on Pinterest and had to copy it.

  It was so easy.  The only thing you need is a picture frame, some ribbons, and tacks.  I found my picture frame at a garage sale.  It was missing the glass, which I didn't want anyway.  They were asking $1.00 which I thought was expensive, but it was the size I wanted so I had to bite the bullet.  The frame was brown, but I I wanted white so I spray painted it.  I got my ribbon at AC Moore for $1.99.  I had the tacks.  I simply attached the ribbon behind the frame with tacks.  I then added sunglasses.  I love how convenient it is to just grab and go!  It is pretty cute too!

Today is also my special little girls birthday!  She is two today!  Happy Birthday Molly!!

Popping Tags

I did go to some garage sales this past weekend.  It wasn't  one of those days where you hit the streets looking for sales all over town, they kind of found me.  The sale where I got this little treasure was just on the side of the road, but the items were on a faux Tulip table like the one I have, so I had to see what they were getting rid of.  I got this little treasure.

I loved the tag, one for the price, and two there was no mold.  It is such a cute display item.

I call that popping tags!

Deer Head

I finally found a deer head the other day at Home goods   I have wanted one for awhile now, but they were expensive so I decided to just wait it out.  I was super excited when I saw this deer that I didn't even look at the price tag.  (Well I did, but it wasn't the very first thing I did.)  It was $24.99, not to bad.  I knew I wanted to spice it up a little, so I spray painted an old frame I had glossy red. Check it out!

I will show more pictures when I do the downstairs reveal.  It is a work in progress right now.  Love the red, I am usually a black and white chick, went out on a limb with the red.

Ta Ta!

Horse Makeover

I am on a wicked horse kick right now.  I see them all over the decor blog world recently, and it's great because I love horses.  I went shopping with my Mom a couple weeks ago and picked up this horse sculpture at Homegoods   I loved it, but wanted to spray paint it white....I had a vision.

 When Tom saw it he was like, "very Marlboro".  That was so not the look I was going for. With that being said, it was time for the glossy white spray paint.  Here she is....

I love it!  It is a major statement piece.  (Whatever that means.)

Much better than the Marlboro country horse.

We had some drippage from the spray paint on the bottom base of the horse.  We were not sure if we could fix it or not.  I was like "hmmmm what to do?, maybe I should paint that part black, hmmmm"  and Tom was like, "hmmm you could put like a garter belt around the bottom"  I laughed so hard.  I wasn't sure if he was serious or not.  We fixed the drippage, damn I hate when that happens.

I love!!

Oh and Happy Fourth of July.... Love the fireworks!

Love our flag!
