Some exciting news!!!!

So as you may have noticed I haven't been blogging in some time.
Things have been super busy in our home. My husband recently got orders to a most wonderful place!

That's right...England!!!!!!
His report date is November.
Unfortunately after much discussion the kids and I have decided not to accompany him. It was an extremely difficult decision.
Having to share custody of my son with my ex-husband the best thing for us is to move back home.
We will plan a vacation there to visit him and tour the beautiful countries as well as a much dreamed about trip to France!
We have been super busy here going through rooms, the attic and garage just donating and throwing out stuff. It feels incredible!
I did manage to squeeze in a couple projects.
I stenciled this galvanized pail before we left for vacation in June. I love the way it turned out.
Lastly, I have been wanting a grainsack lamp shade for ever! Since I haven't been able to find one that I love at a reasonable cost, I grabbed my craft paint and made my own version.
Please excuse the poor quality of photo I just snapped it with my cellphone in a hurry.
I hope you will please excuse my blogging absence while we prepare for the move.
I will still find the time to stalk your blogs ;)
Hope you all are having a great summer!

Going on vacation!

Hi all, I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I was hoping to share what I worked on last week but we've had rain all week. Today is the only day it didn't rain....but I didn't snap a picture because I was busy doing last minute cleaning and packing.
We are going to Houston to visit family for a couple weeks and most importantly I get to see my baby boy and bring him back home! I have missed him sooooo much.
He spent the school year with his dad since his dad is deployed all the time he was finally able to spend a good amount of time with him.
See y'all in a couple weeks!!

Bedside vignette (bedroom update)

I know you're probably tired of seeing this room but what I was planning to post didn't work out because it's been raining outside.
A couple weeks ago I was playing in my room and thought I'd change up the vignette on my nightstand.
Below is the before:

I propped the toile tray against the wall instead of placing books on it. I thought it is much prettier to look at.
Replaced the Mackenzie Child's pitcher for a more natural vase.

I bought a cheap votive candle holder from walmart and with my trusty glue gun wrapped jute webbing around it. I made a few more also.

We had another dresser on this side of the room but I decided to try this vintage French hamper like basket as a nightstand.  I'm still searching for an alabaster lamp.

I'm contemplating stenciling some numbers on it....

I bought a seagrass rug for the end of the bed but not too sure if I like it yet. Maybe once I replace the chairs at the end of the bed.
I hope all of you had a great weekend, ours was full of fun!!! I will share before the end of the week, plus a quick cute project I did yesterday took longer for me to take everything out then to actually do it! LOL
We are leaving for Houston in 5 days and I can't wait to see my son and bring him back home!!!
