{little victories}

Today, I am reveling in my small accomplishments around the home this week, or as I like to call them, 
"Little Victories"!  

The Victorious Includes:
  • Moved my little hutch from the kitchen back into the dining room, and added a rack of shelves in it's former spot in the kitchen

 {This new arrangement in the kitchen is inspiring me to bake more!  The rack is wood and stained light blue, I have had it for FOREVER, it's from IKEA.}

The Hutch...
 {It was a mere $35 at an Estate Sale, the before is HERE, I painted it and added new knobs from Hobby Lobby.}

    • Cleaned and organized the coat closet {totally boring, but needed to be done}
    • Completed and hung an "Art" project in Maggie's room
     {Window frame is from Pier 1 on clearance, the "art" is vintage book pages}
    • Filled in and painted over the zillion holes I've made in the walls, as a result of indecisive and impromptu wall decor accessorizing.  Dear 3M, send me some of your magic picture hanging adhesives...pretty please?
    • Put together pretty new pedestal side table for living room
     {Table is from the Martha Stewart "Ingrid" collection in "Sea Mist" at Home Decorators.  It's good quality and was pretty easy to put together.}
    Looking over that list is making me tired!  There is always more to do around here...I don't think I'll ever win that championship, but I am glad for what I did get done this week.  I'm hoping to mostly just relax and enjoy the weekend, and squeeze in a visit to one of my fave vintage shops, Tattered Tiques, for their monthly shop event.  Wishing you a relaxed and fun weekend as well!

    XO,
    Stacey
