I’m Excited Because…

Today, I’m rather excited because

…I have a free quart of paint from Ace Hardware. And in case you can’t tell, it’s in the same shade as these lovely items.

This gift card just came in the mail from my lovely credit card company. Truly, the only reason I signed up for a credit card was for the rewards. I have great plans for this little card.


I recently went to Ikea and walked out, having spent 54 cents. I think I’ll claim a world record for that. I got this board in the As-Is section. I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do with it. But for 50 cents {+ 4 cents tax}, I figured it was worth the risk.


Speaking of 50 cents, that’s how much I paid for this lovely tray via a yard sale last week. Well, it’s not so lovely now. But I would love to make it lovely with a little sanding + paint. I’ll keep you posted, of course.


My hydrangea {the one I found on my porch from an anonymous friend!} has new growth and for that, I’m so pleased. I was worried I might kill it.


See these pallets? They’re mine. Allllllll mine. Jonathan was doing some outside work at the church this weekend and brought these guys home for me. I don’t know what I’ll do with them yet {doesn’t that sound familiar?} but check out this post if you want to see just a teeny bit of pallet inspiration. I am so pleased at the possibilities that lie before me that I may just leave them for a while just so I can gaze at their beauty.


That’s it for my home decor excitement this week. What about you? Any new home projects in the works? I’d love to hear about them!
