New projects and a new Bathroom

Heres a quick peek of a few projects I will hopefully be getting to this week. I thought you all might like an early look, since I usually forget to do before pictures. :)

So, the first is another house. Can you say fixation? Yes, I admit it. But, theres just something about that shape that speaks to me of, well, home! I got this at Goodwill, I think. And paid just a couple of dollars for it.

LOVE it!! As you can see, it's a shadow box, but it doesnt have the dividers they usually do.

Next, is a hotair balloon i have had for, probably, 6 months or more. I hadn't quite decided what to do with it. Do you do that? Buy something, or aquire it in some other crafty way, like digging it out of a FREE BIN. Gotta love the free bin. Anyway, I got it at a little independant thrift store and paid $8 for it!!!! I know, that's a veritable fortune!! So, I didn't know what to do with it, then I was inspired by Miss Jenn at Sweet Eye Candy Creations. She made some darling ones. Seriously...sooooo stinking cute!!! Go check them out! She blogged about them on June 30. But, while you are there, check out the post she did of the Whimsical Children's Room Blog Party. Dang, that girl can decorate!

Here's mine pre-decorating:

It was metal colored, with a natural basket, but I sprayed it off white, and we'll see where it goes from there! I think both of these items will be headed for Etsy, though! I'd like to have a few really adorable handmade things to put up when I open. And that will be...??? As soon as I can. Ugh! I've been sooooo busy this summer! Doing what, you might ask? Well....

for example, doing this:

Oh, I wish you could see how pretty it is...and how UGLY it was before! It is really hard to take pictures in a small bathroom! The vanity and mirror are definitely on the dark side for me, but, 1. my husband likes dark wood and 2. that was the only one they had at Sam's Club. It was waaaaayyyy cheaper there, so we went for it. I haven't actually gotten around to decorating yet, but, I do love it! And that tub is FAB! Thanks for looking with me!!!
