What do you think??
Im planning painting the curtain rods and adding to/helping the window treatments that the last homeowners left down there. Unfinished wood curtain rods and burlap are not really the look we are going for...
Its a well known fact that I love, love, love recycling. So when I saw this craft project online here and a similar idea here, I knew I had to try it. Whats better than combining my love of crafting and recycling?! Here are a few pictures of the creations. Im working on a few different styles and colors but this is a start! Enjoy!
Its a little known fact that Floyd is a tad bit spoiled. Not helping this situation at all is the fact that I make him his treats. I like to know what he is eating and making sure it's not a lot of processed gunk. Spoiled. I know.
He first had these treats when his Grammy Thomas made them for him and he fell in love! She has passed the recipe on to me and I make them about once a month or so for the little booger.
Here are a few photos of the batch I made recently and the recipe.
(P.S. the 'C' and 'T's shaped ones are for some of Floyd's friends he's going to see soon!)
I use cookie cutters to cut out shapes/letters...obviously you could cut them into bars but I like to think that Floyd appreciates eating something a little more exciting.

Its that time of the week again! Gather 'round for the next installment of awkward and awesomes. Head over to The Daybook to see Sydney and check out some more awkward and awesomes from the week!
I have been on the hunt for something to put over our bed for a while now. I recently came across this phrase that I fell in love with.
|(Not sure where I found this, sorry!)|
If you havent already, you need to jump over to see the ever adorable Sydney at The Daybook. Im quickly developing quite the girl crush on Sydney...her style, sense of humor and love for her husband are out of this world.
Anyway....she does an amazing of installment of 'Awkward and Awesomes' every Thursday and they are the best! I wanted to join in so here's mine!
Im not sure why this is so funny to me but it is. Floyd has taken up the habit of going back to bed every. single. morning. As if, the entire day home alone isn't enough sleep for him. The boy is really growing up and really starting to turn into a true basset.
I first saw this necklace over at Little Miss Momma and knew I had to try it out!
It was SO easy to make and the choices of colors are endless. I ended up using some discontinued fabric from work and a chain I got 40% off at Michaels...pretty good for an adorable addition to my accessory collection
Hello Blogland! Sarah here and I am brand new here to the blogsphere and cant wait to dive right in sharing my adventures in crafting, raising our basset hound, Floyd, couponing and whatever else may come my way!!
I love, love, love exploring crafting, diy, food and coupon blogs. I love seeing what you other genius bloggers come up with and attempting create just as amazing projects.
I am a recent newlywed living with the hubs (Mister) and our son, Floyd. Or actually, according to Floyd, we live with him and he is nice enough to let us live here.
Along with the marriage came a new house that I love decorating (might have something to do with my interior design degree) and creating new projects for the Mister to help me tackle. Hey, Im just trying to make him more handy!
