Happy (day after) Ash Wednesday everyone!!
Am I the only one that gets excited about Easter?? Im not even sure why... maybe because it means Spring is coming and my pasty/glow-in-the-dark white legs are days away from seeing sunshine again, but I seriously love it!
Chris and I even decided we are giving up fried food for Lent! This may not be difficult for most people, but we live in Texas... these people will deep fry anything that stands still long enough... and yes, we will most-likey eat it.
So it comes as no surprise that it's February, and I've already started decorating the house...
After goofing around for a while, I made this little burlap cone/nest/decor thing
I found that bad-a** of a vase a few months back and then my little rabbit friend used to be a grey ceramic before I took a can of high-gloss white spray paint to him.
Maybe I should use a red sharpie to complete the look... or maybe I should put down my margarita I'm drinking while writing this and stop acting like ceramic animals are out to attack....
ANYWAY, I'm also trying to add some fun frames to the kitchen... (please ignore the stack of clean, yes CLEAN, laundry in the background)... (Side note: my kitchen is not yellow... I'm just a bad photo editor.)
It's nice to just have paper and movable tape up to get things exactly where I want them before putting any holes in the wall.
Artichoke Patch I found on Etsy for $2.50.
After I fell in love with my Artichoke, I found this AWESOME asparagus print on Etsy for $8.00 (...gasp... so pricey!!)
But back to the frames.
I also made this last night in my burlap frenzy.
I just printed out a lower case American Typewriter front "y", traced it, used acrylic paint to color it in, and added a period because I'm sassy like that.
Apparently tracing letters and coloring them in makes me really proud of myself since I sent this to both Chris (he was out of town at the time) and my mom bragging about my talents and how I'm debating quitting my job to trace letters full time... both advised NOT to quit my day job.
What about you guys? Decorating yet? Easter? Jumping right over St. Patty's day? Giving up anything more difficult than Fried Food for Lent? (good luck)
