Cabinet Knobs: Before and After

A few weeks back I gave our petite loo a petite makeover...

The makeover included the bathroom sink cabinet door knobs...Whew, that was a mouth full...Hee, hee, hee. Anyway, this it what they looked like before. (Above)

A coat of black spray paint and a then a coat of green paint, a bit of distressing and antiquing and here you have it. The round knob is the original one and I just added the back piece you see. Found the back pieces for 65 cents at the thrift store. They were originally a brass color.

Hmmmm, now I'm thinking the cabinet might be in need of a makeover too :-)


So what do you think of the new knobs?




**For all who read and commented on my last post...Thank you for stopping by and for your caring comments. Oh, and don't worry, I already had the pictures for this post so I didn't have to be on my feet :-)




Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

Bye, Bye Cowboy Boots...


At least for a while...

Those of you who have followed me for a while know how much I love cowboy boots...I even wore them for my wedding...Click here if you'd like to see.

But recently one of my calves has decided to swell up making it very uncomfortable to wear them. I've been meaning to call my doctor about it, but just hadn't made the time...Until yesterday morning...

My calf plus now my ankle too had become sooo swollen, much more than before, I thought it might be time to give my doctor a call. Well to make a long story short, hubby and I ended up at the emergency room, per doctor's orders...His concern was that it my be DVT or deep vein thrombosis, better known as blood clots....Yikes! But don't worry, fortunately, after an ultrasound and three long hours of waiting the ER doctor determined there were no clots...Whew!!!!

However, my calf is still swollen, and the doctor doesn't seem to know why. He wants me to keep an eye on it and check back with my regular doctor. He also wants me to take it easy and try to stay off my feet and keep my leg elevated as much as possible....What?! But I have so many projects I want to work on..."Doctor's orders" Hubby keeps reminding me...Arggg! Well at least I can still blog.

Thank you for your visit today. I always look forward to you stopping by. It always, always, always brightens up my day.

My Sweet Brother-In-Law

How sweet and thoughtful is this?

Just had to share the beautiful shabby chic jewerly chest my brother-in-law Victor gave me.

He had ordered it especially for my birthday. He knows how much I love white, shabby chic pieces. It took a while to get in the mail that's why I just got it, but hey I'm not complaining...Any day is a perfect day to receive a gift, especially one as beautiful as this :-)



I love, love, love it Victor...But I love you more :-) Thank you.



Wishing you all a fantabulous new week.

La Petite Loo

Hi Everyone!

Wouldn't if be fun to begin this new and creative week with a little riddle?

Yes?

Okay, ready?

What can you make with one of these.....


(An old wire basket I had laying around)
...and one of these?...

( 24 inch wooden candlestick, a thrift store find)
Ta daaaaa!...


A petite toiletry and towel stand...

Hubby helped bring my vision to life. He used a couple of screws and a very creative way to marry this two pieces together.
I just love it! And it looks awesome in my newly re-decorated petite loo...
What do you think?

All Set For Easter...

Ms. Bunny's new dress is all done and she's all set for Easter...

Remember the fabric from my last post? Well this is what I made with it...

(You guessed right Ally.)

Ally is my sweet blogging friend from Italy. (Click here to visit her blog) She left me a comment yesterday saying she was guessing I was going to use the fabric to make Ms. Bunny's new dress...And she was right. (If you'd like to see a before picture of Ms. Bunny just click here.)

I used some new fabric but also re-used some from her old dress.

Even re-used some of the trims and lace from the old dress. I made her a sweet little headband with some of the lace...

Ms. Bunny says she hopes you liked her new dress...And she wishes everyone a very Hoppy Day! Hee, hee, hee.


Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

Blessings.

Can't wait to get started, and I will, right after I finish the laundry.... My goodness, miss one day of laundry because of a little spring break and all of a sudden there are mounds and mounds and mounds of laundry to do :-P Gotta hurry! Check back to see what I make with these items...



Wishing everyone a fantabulous new week.

Desert In Full Bloom

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I haven't been around for a visit but this week my daughter and hubby were on Spring Break so we've been out and about having a little fun. Today, for example, we took a little trip to the desert and it was the perfect time to visit because it was in full bloom...I never imagined there could be so many pretty flowers in the desert. Just wanted to share a few pictures...

Hope you enjoyed my little desert flower mosaic.


Wishing everyone a fantabulous weekend.

Will be over for a visit soon.

Ms. Bunny

Hello My Sweet Friends!

Today I'd like to introduce to you Ms. Bunny.
She was a gift from my sweet mother-in-law.

Can you believe she came from a thrift store?

Love the crackling...

However her little dress is a bit worn and I think a new one would suit her just fine, especially since Easter is just around the corner. What do you think?


Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

Blessings.
