I have joined the Pinterest wagon. Who would have thought that it would be so addicting to pin your favorites and have them all in one spot? I love it!

Here are a few of my favorites right now!

I LOVE everything about this bedroom. The green chandelier, the green curtains, light tealy blue walls, the bedding, and that bench. I love it all and wish it was mine!!

I don't know what it is about these paper mache birds, but they are adorable and I need to find some to make!

I don't cook and hardly ever bake (I think the only time I do back is when it is my birthday so I can bring treats to work...), but if I did, I would so want this apron!

Oh if only I could crochet... I would love to curl up with this blanket and read a book.

These look like real feathers don't they, but they are paper! I like that the tutorial looks so easy to make!

Dyed paper doilies and then hang them? Easy decor!

So I suppose that I should update this little old blog of mine. It has been pretty neglected lately. :(

Today was a pretty sad day. As some of you know, I work in a daycare and last Wednesday, one of our 1 year old passed away. Today was her funeral. She will be dearly missed and the suffering her family is going through breaks my heart. So I just wanted to let you know that is where my head has been the past few days.

(Please don't mind my eyebrows... I really have to get them done again.)

Anyways, I saw this on someone else's blog (can't remember who so if it was your idea, please let me know and I'll credit you!) and thought it was kinda cool.
