Flipping Re-Styles and A Lamp Revamp

I have been busy flipping between our much needed master bedroom makeover and studio/ office re-styling. Love that word Re-Styling! Both projects are very slowly getting there and I am ok with that. Truthfully speaking, I am thankful for the hiccups and time delays because this is where I find the time and distance to view things a little objectively. And just for kicks and giggles, I do like to see if I have strayed or stayed with my original theme. Do you like to think things through or just get them done, like yesterday, like now? Ah I know that feeling too!
Quite the jar storage session going on... so perfect for trinkets, twine and label tags

An Office Lamp- Restyle

  Can you believe this lamp would not leave us even after we sold it on ebay! Now I figure it is welcome to stay. So I painted it white (it was previously black) and re-styled the lamp head with a doily. I think it looks much more organic in our office space now too.

 I am also working on a jute wall hanging project for our bare wall in our living area... I am quite excited about this one! I want it to be enormous and maybe it will also have lots of these luscious blue/ green chunky pom poms. Pom Poms bring back such lovely vintage memories don't they? I had actually forgotten how to make them but my 7 year old, Oliver recently showed me how.
Ah Pom Poms!

40th Birthday Party Styling

Someone in our house turned the big 40. It was not me, well not just yet!

We had pom poms made from baking paper
And bright coloured streamers

Beautiful Solar lights

A fire pit birthday present, I think he really liked it.
