Pinned it Friday Haley Edition

Hello again my friends!! Its Friday and you know what that means! Another round of Pinned it Friday! First let me just tell you about my week! It was THE BOMB! Yes, it truly was! I drove up to Yuma Tuesday morning and spent a couple days with one of my most favorite people ever! Rachel of course! We did lots of shopping, much to our husbands dismay. I got a lovely charm pack (5x5 inch pre cut fabric blocks) at Rachel's local quilting store. I didn't particularly need them but they were just to cute.  I am sure there will be a baby quilt they will work just perfectly for in the future. We both ended up getting lots of jewelry.. I have to be honest I'm not a big jewelry person but I'm loving all the stacked bracelet fashions going on right now and the smaller necklaces and such. So we both got a stack of bracelets. When we got in the car we realized we got all three of the exact same sets. I think we must be related or something! I got some little gifts for my main man and my little boys and we spent the rest of the time talking until our jaws were sore, eating lots of delicious food and doing a little quilting! It was a great trip exactly what I needed to go home and love my crazy two year olds again and miss my husband! Some times you just need a little escape from your own reality to appreciate how good your life is. Even when your tired of vacuuming up smashed animal crackers off your carpet, folding ten loads of laundry and dealing with whiney kids! It was just what the doctor ordered!

Now on to business!

#1. I saw this pin and thought these were so adorable! after spending a pretty penny on of a few of my stacked bracelets I saw these! They would be so easy and I would imagine inexpensive to make! don't you think? Link
#2. Since making those dolls last week I have been brainstorming lots of ideas of how I could make other stuffed animals and such! I saw this pin and thought what a genius idea! Using pipe cleaners to make ears. It would also be useful for many other stuffed animal ideas! Link

#3. I have a spot in my kitchen where someday I would like to put a shelf or a plate rack. I happened to come across this pin and thought this is exactly what I need! go check out the link! It has an entire tour of the house and it is absolutely gorgeous!

#4. I love this idea for a gallery wall. I have been wanting to make some chalk boards of my own. Dear Lilly has some fantastic ones but this one by Whipperberry takes it to another level with an entire collage of them!

#5. The last pin I have today is possibly from my MOST favorite blog. KariAnne over at Thistlewood Farms is always coming up with the most jaw dropping home décor ideas! From her amazing herringbone desk, to her perfect paint colors, and her witty posts that always make me smile! I just love her blog! This is a recent project that she did and it is a perfect spin on the oh so popular plate wall. It still has that vintage vibe but it is also modern. Go check out her blog its divine!
Hope everyone had a simply wonderful week!!
