Things I Wanna Do

January 30, 2011 - I just found how WhisperWood Cottage had a new use for some old doors.  I TOTALLY love this!!  Love the look.............  Now to find some doors!!!

I guess the hubs and I just need to win the lottery - that way I'd have plenty of time AND money to do all these projects I'm finding and want to do!!!  Please Lotto-Fairy Godmother - wave that magic wand!!!

I need a place to keep my ideas that I want to try to remember to do.

Like the Tin Craft Stars I found over at Choose To Thrive.   Way too cute and not JUST for Christmas!!! If you'd like to see, click Thrive 

I made some paper stars very similar to this and hung them on the tree this year.  LOVE them, but I'm afraid they will get mooshed when I pack the tree up.

I am so so sorry that I can't remember which blog I got this from - - If it was your's - - thank you,  thank you!!  and let me know - - I'll add your blog to this post so you can have more visitors!!

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures - This is the post I saw and learned how to make these stars!  Tracy has a super easy tutorial posted!!  Go visit and see for yourself!!

But don't these stars look awesome?   Hard to believe they're made out of paper, isn't it???    PAPER!!

So I think I've mentioned a couple of times that we are renovating/redecorating/sprucing up the house, and I'm thinking I need to make a tin star, paint it black and hang it in the bathroom or in our bedroom (or BOTH!! - I LOVE stars!!)  ~~ too stinkin cute!!!

Idea #2 -- Hubby n I went to a fundraiser last spring and we got 3 of these little lanterns. (They are off-white and very distressed.  The picture makes them look gray - sorry!!)  I love them, but I haven't done anything with them - - YET!!   I had been kicking around the idea of cutting the word JOY out of red or burgundy vinyl and putting one letter on each one.........  but then this morning **BAM!!**  a new better idea popped into my brain - - How about our initials, done with black vinyl??    Then put them in our bedroom when it's finished???              I likey - I likey a lot!!!

Put a little tea light in them, and light them, and hhmmmmmmmmm  too cute!!

So - thinking of our bedroom - - I want to do it in Gold and Mustard/Darker Gold and Black.  I have this *vision* in my head and it's sooo pretty - I wish you could see it!!   I tried to explain it to the hubs, but he didn't get it.   If you've done your bedroom or another room in these colors and posted it - let me know!  I'd love to see your pictures!!!  And I can show the hubs and he can stop looking at me like I have 2 heads!!!

Have an awesomely wonderful last day of 2010 and be careful!!  2011 is going to be a great year!!
