This weekend.....

My little coffee break.....

I have been busy this weekend doing some spring cleaning......
Like the dreaded windows....
But with this lovely warm weather we are having I wanted a  perfect view of that bright sunshine!

 So excited to have the roses blooming! I don't have alot but I love being able to clip fresh roses
for the house It's amazing what a difference a bit of fresh flowers can make! Not only a touch of prettiness
but a wonderful mood lifter!

 I sure wish I would of done a before and after pic of this dresser, I  do seem to work on a spur of the moment kinda of way & usually once I'm into the project I think about what a great before and after pic it would be. Kinda like my coffee table in the pic above this one, it was a dark wood and now it is so much brighter painted white, I will have to get a better pic.
Anyway the dresser was already white, but kinda of a dull looking white with brass knobs.

So got that sudden urge to repaint & Hobby lobby had their knobs  1/2 off {Sweet!}
I had the white paint already, so just the cost of the knobs which was around 13.00 bucks
Can't complain about that and very pleased with the redo!

How about your weekend?
 Any fun projects?

Easter.....




Couldn't resist this little chic ....


Very early when the sun had risen, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb,
Alleluia. {Mk 16:2}

Trip to the beach

 I got to go on a little get away to one of my favorite spots on the California coast.....
 Carmel by the sea!
A place with lots of gorgeous beaches!

A very dog friendly place so you see lots of people and their doggies...
In the back view of this pick, where you see the green patch, that's the famous Pebble Beach golf course

Our first day it rained and rained and rained!
But thankfully,the next day we got some sunshine &
got to enjoy a little stroll on the beach before we headed back.

If you have never been, let me just tell you... it's like you stepped right into a little fairy tale wonderland!
There lots and lots of wonderful little restaurants......
Is this not the cutest setup......
Lots and lots of the cutes shops ever!!!!




Romance is overflowing.......
The flowers alone make your heart flutter!

I snapped a few more pics of the beach on a little drive...
This is a glimpse of where we got to stay! Right smack in the middle of Carmel!
So in love!

Love this cabinet! It was filled with the battery operated candles
and while sitting their in the evening I noticed the glow!
How smart is this!
They are set on timers so they automatically pop on in the evening!
So gonna get a few of those!

Love, love this!
:]
So that's a little glimpse of part one!
I have a few more pics to share!

From the random blogger :]
I have really missed blogging lately, it's been a little hectic and I'm not
the greatest juggler!

Hope all is well on your sides!

Have a blessed day!
