I Got Soul

*rapping*  "It's been a long time, that I left you.....without a strong beat to step to, step to"
LOL, This is the rap my husband starting rapping when I told him that my last post was April 8, 2010! Anyone remember that old rap by Eric B and Rakim (I think)?! Well, apparently Lance does. If you don't, take a'll give you a good laugh!

Anyways, I am so very sorry that I've been missing in action for a while.....I've been through alot in my personal life and haven't found the time to blog. Hope all of you are doing well! I'm anxious to get back into the swing of things!

Lately I've been into black and white, so I'll leave you with a few beautiful Inspiration's sort of like a peace offering!

The Small Reveal!!

I know, I know....a small reveal doesn't really sound that exciting, but I couldn't really call the reveal of our downstairs half bath BIG. It's actually pretty small! :) But I'm new to all this decorating I had to start small. Do you remember the before picture in my first post about it? Let me refresh your memory:

And here she is now...
Chrome is in the details...

The sink, toilet, and all the hardware was bought at Lowe' favorite hardware store. I purchased the frame from Big Lots for six bucks! The print out of the picture I got from Oh Brooke, only cost $3.00 to print out at Staples. The quality is much better than what I could achieve at home. The candle holders were $5.00 a piece from Kohls online and I purchased the soap dispenser from K-Mart.
Everything else was things I had lying around and waiting for a home!
Oh! Almost forgot....I put a metal basket under the sink with supplies with a few magazines under it.

Thanks for looking!!

Cutest Bungalow EVER!!

I was flippling through Sunset on Wednesday, and they featured the cutest bungalow ever!

Lauren and Eric Wendlandt saw potential is this 96-year-old, 750-square-foot, fixer-upper and updated wiring, plumbing, total gut renovation.
You can tell that they took extra care to utilize every square inch of this home! There is a lot of storage placed high on the walls...what a great idea when you working with a small space!

They also took advantage of the backyard, which was three times the size of the house. This picture was simply labled...LIVE OUTSIDE.

Easter Egg Tip...

I don't know if anyone else will be surprised about this as I was, I may be just a little behind! When I was reading one of my magazines, they mentioned that you could use brown eggs to accomplish a richer color for Easter eggs. I don't know about you guys, buy my Easter eggs always seem a bit washed out...

....but with brown eggs you get a much richer color!

It takes about five to ten minutes longer to dye them, but you're rewarded with deep, jewel-like shades. If you want to see speckles, leave them in for only three minutes.
