Halloween is Upon us!

Halloween is right around the corner. So, I whipped up some no cost decorations. Autumn over at Design*Dump made a really cute Halloween-themed fabric pennant garland. I loved it and wanted to make one too. But, I don't own a sewing machine (Maybe Santa will bring me one!) and I didn't have any fabric. So, I made do with what I had. I used a cheap Halloween garland that I bought last year and some leftover scrap-booking paper. Using a pennant template I found here, I traced the pattern and cut out my pennants. Then I simply stapled the paper pennants onto the garland. And here you have it! 

Maybe next year, I'll have a fabric pennant garland to show you!

My Very First Posting!

\Today I'm blogging for the first time! After reading so many great blogs out there, I thought it was about time I joined in. So here I am!

For this first posting, I thought I would share my master bathroom. It's nothing fancy. Just your basic "builder grade" bathroom. I don't have room in my budget to make major changes to it. But, working with what I have, this is what I've done:

The walls are a custom color using Benjamin Moore paint. I drew the Eiffel Tower picture in ink. The mirrored frames I found at Tuesday Morning and the silver frame at Target. The black lacquer shelf is from Hobby Lobby. Here's a few more views:

Some things I'd like to do in the near future are: install drawer and cabinet hardware and new flooring. What do you think?
