Thought I'd share a few more pics from around the house today.
This is how I spent a recent Sunday morning...Swedish fish, a cup of tea, and the Sunday paper. I love the Baby Blues comic strip! I've read every single one since it started in January of 1990. :)
I know y'all know how much I Hate Cords Showing, so this is what I did to this one. The original lamp cord was black, so I just taped it down the leg of the table so it wouldn't show. The problem was the part of the black cord that showed on the light colored carpet before it went under the sofa. I simply painted that section a lighter color to blend in with the carpet a little better. :) I just put some wax paper under it while I painted. Extreme??? Yeah, maybe. :)
We bought this light to replace the one in our hallway. I love the nautical look of it. I'll show the before and after soon.
I made THESE enchiladas again. So, so good!
My blogger friend Diana told me about these nifty little things. If you do a lot of painting, these are a lifesaver. They hold a lot of weight too. I had my hubby pick some up for me at Home Depot. They came in a 10 pack for about $5.
I found this little candle while browsing Walmart's Valentine section. Every home needs a little zebra print, right? I also recently picked up some Valentine goodies for my boys. Every Valentine's Day, I fill little baskets with candy for them. One thing I always buy are those Russell Stover Strawberry Cream Hearts. I've given those to them every year since their very first Valentine's Day. :) Below is one of their baskets filled with Valentine goodies. :)
Here's a quick and easy dinner we had the other night. I buy two boxes of this pasta salad and add some grated parm and grape tomatoes. We usually serve it with breadsticks. I love meals that the whole family will eat. :)
I bought this wall decoration for my newly painted living room. (love the chicken wire!) We rearranged the furniture after we painted and I needed some new things to fill up wall space. My hubby is going to build a little something extra to go around it, and I'll share that when I show the full painting reveal soon.
Well, that's all for now. Y'all come back Friday when I'll be sharing how I finally got my grimy stove burners clean. It was extremely cheap and easy. We hardly had to use any elbow grease at all! You won't believe the before and after pics.
