A Little More DIY; But Not Much Writing About It!

ohmygosh where has the time gone? yes, once again i have taken a two three month leave-of-absence from my lovely blog! 

Well, that's okay cause we're just gonna jump right back into it :)  I am kind of ADD when it comes to projects.  I see something I want to do, I start it, then I see something else I want to do, so I stop that other thing and go to the next, and it just goes that way.  I have several things going on and nothing seems to get done very quickly.  Anyone else do that?  Really, it's just me?  Ha, I think not...

So I shared the picture above on Instagram on a lovely Saturday back in April that I had four things I wanted to accomplish that weekend.  THAT was pie-in-the-sky for me, folks.  Four things ain't gonna happen in one weekend.  But, I did get two of those thing finished (one with the help of my sweetest hubby) and felt sooo accomplished!

Like others in the blogasphere I have become crazy about succulents.  When I found this old pottery dish at the thrift store I knew I wanted to fill it with some adorable little plants.  Such a quick little thing to do, and the outcome is so enjoyable - everyone who has walked in my house and seen this little dish just goes nuts!  I love it and hope I do not kill them.

The second project was to upgrade this awesome bohemian light into a real, working light.

I found this at 3 Monkey's Antiques & Auctions, in Blue Ridge, GA.  My best friends and I take a girls' trip up there every spring to hunt for treasures and to just hang out, eat shrimp, and drink alcohol.  This was one of my scores from that trip!  I'm slowly working on Chelsea's room, and she loves that bohemian look - and so do I!  This light will fit right in. (Seriously, I could have several different houses and the decor would all be totally different.)   Hubs and I went to Lowes - he got a socket, some lamp wire, a switch, and a plug and made this thing light up.  He's awesome!  Now we just need to hang it...  we'll see how long that will take...

Love the light! Isn't it so cool??  So I sorta got two things done.. when the lamp is hung then it will really be done.

I've been working on the other two things I mentioned in the picture - recovering the chair seats and a secret project - and will be sharing about those soon too!

Are you ready for summer to be here?  I sure am!  What projects have you been working on?
