Oh, How Pinteresting!

Today I am linking up with

First of all, if you haven't heard of, or started an account with Pinterest yet.. you NEED to.
You need an invite right now though and I have already sent a bunch of friends requests to join and they are hooked.. so if you are interested in joining please let me know and i'd be more than happy to send you an invite!

I love saving pictures of things that I love, want to do/create/etc, to a folder on my desktop. I still have yet to upload EVERYTHING that I have saved in that folder.. but i'll get there eventually.. until then I am loving the site. I get on every single day .. most of the time more than just once and will spend hours just looking at things, and pinning things and getting ideas. I adore this website.

Here are some of my recent pins:

I ADORE this piece.. I want more than anything to have something like this in my home before I die.

How cute is this??? I love it. I think whenever we buy and move into our new home, I want this in our entry way somewhere... I just think its cute!

A Terrarium: I want to make one (or 50) of these, so badly! I have more than enough things to make them in, and I have found SO many ADORABLE ideas. This is one of my favorite things to look up on here now, I am obsessed!

another idea that I LOVE... a bit morbid to some, but I think its lovely

A craft idea that I REALLY want to do.. Important dates!

Another crafty idea that I really want to do that would go along great with the important dates one.. a 'collage' of keys!

There are SOOOOOO many other things that I have on there, and that I have yet to upload.
I would love followers on there, and will defiantly follow back as I love to peek into what other people are pinning!!!

Thank you so much for joining me and taking a peek into my pins, and I look forward to seeing you soon! =]

My first White Wednesday!!

Hello everyone! I am linking up to my very first White Wednesday!!

Now I have never participated in a White Wednesday previously because I just do not have that much white in our home, unfortunately. Hubby really doesn't like white, and most of our furniture is wood or black. I plan on redoing a couple of pieces though, and really want to do a dark stain on top and white (or possibly gray) on the bottom.

I went around and took pictures of a few of the white knick knacks I have scattered around.. We recently did a big deep clean because we had someone come to look at our house so there isn't as much out as there was... but here are a few things!

First is the top of one of my book shelves ... I had to move the picture over so you could see the white cat better, and ignore the hubby's model plane -.- After Easter I took everything down and never really did re-decorate anything, I just kind of threw things around and didn't do much with anything.

Some of my Willow tree collection sitting on a silver tray with fake pearls, heart gem stones and a key.

More Willow Tree scattered about..

Not too much white :(
I defiantly need to start adding some more.. lighten my color scheme up!
First I need to get the hubby more into the idea!

Thank you for checking me out, sorry my link up is a bit boring!

12 more days!

Until I am 24.
I may seem excited about this because of the exclamation point you see in my title.. but in reality, I am not. It's not so much the "getting older" part.. it's just that I never actually do any celebrating of my birthday. Every year my fiance and I will go out to eat and go to the movies, or to the zoo, or wherever else I want to go. I don't go out to bars or clubs or anything.. fun...

However, this year even though I have absolutely nothing planned.. I do have a list of things that I want for my birthday, and this rarely ever happens.. I NEVER know what I want!!

First of all, I'm getting another cat. We're going to go to the shelters in the area and try to find the purrfect match. I defiantly want an older/adult cat, one who has been at the shelter for quite some time. I am SUPER excited about this.

There is a Tim Magraw, Luke Bryan and The Band Perry concert at the end of this month that I REALLY want to go to. I didn't get tickets yet as I want to keep checking Craigs List to see if anybody has anything better than Lawn seats come up, if not I will get them off line.. or maybe have my mom get them for me.
There is another concert that I want to go to but its not until September.. but I think those concert tickets would be a good idea, thats less out of pocket money for me to have to spend.. or she can give me money to put towards them.. either way.

We only have 3 more months until Florida too, This is am very excited about. I am still not a fan of roller coasters, but I just can't wait to be away from here and just be able to relax, wake up and not have to go to work. What would be awesome would be being able to find a job while down there and NOT coming back to PA. HAA! I really don't want to *live* in Florida though, WAY too hot for me. But it would defiantly be nice to not have to come home... i'd just have my mom pack up our stuff .. and animals.. and bring or fly them all down to us hahahaha. (hey, a girl can dream right?!?!)

I need to get projects finished up too. I have a ton of little odds and ends projects that I really want to do, as well as re-doing the entry table.. It feels weird doing it since its something my dad made, but it would SO nice when it was done!

Ok, thats enough from me for now.. I will hopefully have some posts soon with my recent thrifts/finds and projects!
