Stenciled art work and NEWBIE party is ON!

I started off with some orange burlap I already had around. I bought this stencil some time back and finally used it. Instead of the craft paint I normally use, I decided to try one of these pens.Fantastic btw.
This was another fun, on the cheap project.
I will be sharing yet again just another snip of what more is to come.

Are you starting to get a feel for the guest room transformation yet? We are very happy with the outcome, I say we because Mike really likes it too..he was digging the art work...he had to hang it for me. So fun and fresh for the Spring and Summer season. All on the cheap too.

I discovered this new line of bedding at TJ'Maxx by Cynthia Rowley...
SWOON baby SWOON! I am loving it.
You will be getting the full reveal very soon. It is killing my Mom..she can't wait to see it.

Enjoy the newbie party,
you know the drill by now.

Blogging for 6 months and/or less than 100 followers.
Turn off Word verification, not necessary as blogger is doing a fine job of spam.
If you are not a friend of mine...
would love to have you become one.
I host this weekly party every Monday, and I am very happy with the outcome, and the  many sweet emails I receive thanking me for starting it. That just tickles me so. It really is neat to watch your blogs grow and all the connections being made. I feel so happy to be a part of that.
Each week I am discovering new blogs and new friends myself.
YAY..that is what it is all about here peeps.
I could not resist showing you the night stand complete. Poor picture quality, rainy and dark all weekend. Don't worry full room reveal very was so much fun to work with that chalk paint.

Our guest bedroom has had a total room transformation, looks nothing like this.
