DYI Chandelier Inspiration Curated For Hometalk

Hi Lovelies, I am currently in Germany on vacation, but I could not say NO to 
Hometalk when they ask me to curate a board for DIY Chandeliers.
WHY? Cuz I love Hometalk and chandeliers!!!

Aren't those chandelier projects all gorgeous and unique? They add so much
character to spaces, both in and outdoors.
For more information on these beauties on Hometalk click here HERE  

You might remember a recent post of mine? I hung a little candle
chandelier on my front porch. Can't wait to dress it up for the holidays too.
Thanks again Hometalk for asking me to put 
together some of my faves. 
Now back to vacation mode!
 Auf Wiedersehen!

My First Cowhide Rug

Hello Everyone,  Well I finally jumped on the cowhide wagon and got myself a
"MOO MOO" cow for our dining room. You might remember my plans for a new
Dining Room Look ? Well it's coming along slowly but surely!

On my  IKEA Shopping Trip last weekend, I purchased this brown cowhide
with a few little white spots on it.
Truth be told, I had previously purchased a brown 
cowhide from World Market, but the ones at IKEA 
were on sale for $200 and the one from Word Market 
was $350. So I returned the World Market rug...
Need I feel guilty now????



I know not everyone approves of cowhides or other types of
animal skins for clothing or decorations. But it's like I told 
one of my vegetarian friends when accused of 
supporting the industry: 
"BUT I ALREADY ATE THE COW"
So this could be considered an up-cycle, right?"

Well, that's what's new around here this week. I will be taking a blogging break
for a few weeks for the summer. Before I go here is a little cowhide
eye candy for you to drool over.....

How about you Peeps, do you like cowhides 
as much as I do?

A few new things from IKEA

Hello Sweets, my friend Jill and I went to IKEA yesterday and did a little damage between the two of us. 
I am really busy today, so here are some quick pictures of some new treasures throughout the house.

I got these beautiful white MATILDA curtains for our Master Bedroom. They have a little pattern to it that I love. The wicker trunk is also from Ikea, but I've had it for a while. 
It's hard to take a good picture with daylight 
coming through a window
here is a link to the IKEA Matilda curtains
I also got a cute little BYHOLMA basket for on top of the Master Bedroom Armoire, 
it matches my large wicker trunk perfectly
My Mother In-Love painted these 
adorable pictures of our son
Here is a link to the Byholma basket

I got new white bedding for the Master Bed...
just plain white which looks best with the 
rich GINGER wall color 
(the 3 large throw pillows are NOT from Ikea)
here is a link 

Let me take you to the master bathroom. We have these 3 huge drawers in the 
middle of the sink and I can never keep my things organized in there
so IKEA came to the rescue
I love this set of three trays for bathroom storage
And another organizer idea from Ikea

Ok, off to the guest bedroom, I also got the 
IKEA Matilda  curtains for in here



Maybe I gave you some ideas to keep more organized. I know I sure need all the help I can get.
Off to tackle my Linen closet now (it is a dangerous place, I might get lost in there...lol)
Happy Sunday Peeps and thanks for coming to visit me!
