Pretty Is As Pretty Does


It’s Friday and time for A Beautiful Life post, stop by The Inspired Room to read everyone’s post. 

It is going to be 80 degrees today.  Can you say capri pants and sandals?  I’m happy!

Finding Beauty!

Two nights ago I was on my way to do errands and I grabbed my camera, I have not been taking many pictures and I wanted to get some spring flowers.  I noticed some really nice flowers, but I was scared to just stop and take pictures of people’s yards.  I was worried about explaining it when the people wrote down my license plate and called the police.  Is that weird, or do you take random pictures from your car?

I came home disappointed.  It’s amazing when you slow down and look for beauty what you find in your own yard.




Do you put things off?  Then you need to participate in

APRIL 30 – May 14

I am ashamed to say how many projects I have to choose from.  I could do the girl’s bathroom, I could do the junk room, I could do my bedroom and the list goes on and on.  I asked Mr. Wonderful what project he wanted to do, he reminded me of the projects he’s already done.


He said he’s not sure he wants to do any project, I think he’s still bitter because I wasn’t happy with my table he painted.

The Before!


The After!


Notice the picture is taken far away, the paint job is not the best.  The lamp base was a thrift store find, the shade was a splurge from Tuesday Morning.  I love it!

Tomorrow I’m going to post my favorite 10 things about my house.  I would love for everyone to join me.  If you decide to do your Top 10 leave a comment I want to see everyone’s Top 10.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......

    I am going on a supply shopping hiatus while we save every dollar for our vacation in June. That means that if I want to make ANYTHING I have to use stuff from my stash, which should encourage me to get around to the stuff I’ve been procrastinating about. 🙂

    Your table looks great!

  3. Oh, I think if any one gets that close to one of my projects they should STEP AWAY. It looks great from here! 🙂 I’m thinking about my project (oh, if you could only SEE my house right now, all the boxes we have everywhere!)…I should be unpacking but I really want to tackle a project like my chairs so we’ll see which one I end up choosing! I’m scared, I am not a good painter.

    Thanks for sharing your photos !
