Hubby and I will be relaxing, watching movies, taking walks and hitting the pool this weekend. I wish that you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend too.

#DIY Glass Frame Tray

We've been talking about buying glass that would fit the top of the bench for years! But, if you follow my blog, seen many of my decorating posts, I like to reuse, repurpose and craft my way to a solution. Especially when it's 'easy breezy'.

This old frame had been sitting in one of the closets for a couple of years. I just removed the matte, cleaned the glass and done!

When my husband saw it this morning, he replied, "I like it"! I do too!

#LasVegas "Did You Feel That"?

Yes, Las Vegas felt an 5.3 magnitude earthquake today. Some residents have been reporting property damage, including damage to the "Spaghetti Bowl" ramp, U.S. Route 95 to southbound of Interstate 15.

I was watching HuffPost Live, at the time, typing a comment when I felt the building start to shake, my chair began to move and the furniture, especially the TV began to sway!

As a former San Diego resident, I have experience many earthquakes so I knew what was happening. It's just a shock since Las Vegas isn't known for earthquakes.

Everything is okay, at my house. Just a reminder to have our emergency preparedness kits ready!

Thursday Thoughts ~ May 21, 2015

So, let me get this straight. One wears flats and they're turned away from the Cannes events? Wow! Who knew.

May 21st is #RedNoseDay! Purchase a red nose at Walgreens and funds go towards charity! I love this idea!

I make sure to wash and dry thrift shop clothes items but now I better be washing all new purchases from now on! Yikes!

These days, there are more options for brides, when it comes to wedding gowns. One can rent or purchased used. I definitely think it's a great idea. One can now afford a high end dress from Rent The Runway for an affordable price! Happy shopping!

A Nice Way To Start My Day!

This area has quickly become one of my favorite locations in our home. I'm greeted with bright sunshine to start my day!

Day Off: Watching "Gilmore Girls"

The pinched nerve, in my neck, has been progressively gotten worse so today, I'm taking a day off! It's a gloomy day, in our neck of the woods but I decided to watch loads of "Gilmore Girls", on Netflix and eat junk food!

#DIY Craft Project: @ Symbol

I've been admiring the many Etsy painted symbols that are on sale but didn't want to pay $20+. So when my husband and I were at our favorite Target store, picking up prescriptions, I decided to a stroll through their craft aisle.

What a pleasant surprise when I saw unpainted wooden letters, numbers and symbols for sale.

The @ was only $4.99 and Robin Egg paint was $1.99. I had a cream white wide ribbon at home that would round out this project!

I love how it turned out. And who knows, I might purchase additional letters for other decorating projects.
