I met Kelly of Eclectically Vintage during our local blogger get together at Cutting Edge Stencils. My first impression of her was that she was chic and smart. And guess what? She is. And she has beautiful taste that I envy. Her blog is luscious....gorgeous photography and so many creative, crafty, DIY, and decoration ideas. You can spend hours pouring over her stuff!

Who doesn't love cake? No one. And teachers love to eat. Have you ever seen the inside of the faculty room? Full of cake. When I was growing up we would try to catch a glimpse inside as we walked by to learn all their secrets. Know what? All we ever saw were the teachers smoking and reading the paper. I can't even fathom going in here to smoke nowadays. Of course, now that we aren't smoking there is a lot more cake in the faculty room.

Let's cut to the chase, shall we?
|"You're a pretty good teacher. Thanks.So tell me again the purpose of writing a spelling word 5x?"|
|"Holy mackerel! You are seriously the most creative and effectivel teacher ever. Thank you so much for all you do for our sweet children. We can't thank you enough. You really deserve a day at the spa or an African violet."|

A few weeks ago, Ellie, Pixie and I were taking a walk around the block. It was garbage day and the garbage truck had already come by our neighborhood. However, I happened upon a piece of old wood that I guess they didn't take or missed. So I scooped it up knowing exactly what I would do with it!

Don't you love meeting new or new-to-you blogs? Recently I was introduced to Jody at Magnolia Mommy Made and I am so excited to share her new kitchen with you!
Well, not exactly new but spiffed up! Jody painted the cabinets with Anne Sloan Chalk Paint, painted her oak trim, changed her brass hardware to oil rubbed bronze with spray paint, and added some chalkboard accents for fun. See what a little paint and some small changes can do? Her kitchen feels lighter and more modern to me.

Hi friends! It seems as if I haven't been around much and I guess I haven't. Ellie is in such an active stage that I rarely have the energy at night to sit on the computer, let alone sew or mod podge something. I am working on two furniture pieces though and I'm so excited to share them with you. But I can't say when that will be.
I have, however, gotten myself back into the kitchen. I guess you can tell since most of my posts are recipes right now! Well, here's another! Dark chocolate dipped meringues. o.m.g.
