PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at
Sunday we made a drive down the road to my 19 yo daughter's apartment.
I had JUST picked up my new camera (Canon SX130is) that morning,
and while Hubs helped her hang some stuff,
I went around and clicked.
She's used quite a bit of my unused holiday decor...mostly the reds. And she got herself a tree :)
I think she did a great job hanging my old ornaments....
And using her imagination to make ornaments out of non-ornaments, like this berry pick:
All her living and dining furniture came from our house. She's got in on loan :)
Trying a little macro.....haven't nailed that yet :)
She wanted a coffee filter wreath too, so we made this together. We used a large form and mini-size filters.
I painted the tin stars and made the mini garland last year....
she draped them over this mirror thing I painted from Hobby Lobby.
Here's a shot of her kitchen. Notice I edited out the dirty dishes! We painted in here (as well as the family/dining area), and changed out the knobs from big bulky (filthy) pulls. Chalkboard and Christmas countdown from her mama too :)
This is Kristen's room....she made that entire collage herself by sticking up a huge plastic tarp and adding pictures one by one. Her room is cute when it's clean....
Here's the collage she made for the main room.
It's supposed to be a tree shape, but the joke is that it looks like a woman bending over :)
Her tv stand is the oak dresser I had been using in my bedroom. The chair is also mine.
Cheap storage, these adult children's apartments...
These were IKEA towels I stenciled last year.
This is her couch wall, but I couldn't show you that because, well, there was someone sleeping on it...
she painted this 70's lamp black. The pic is Kristen and her man Kelly...they're goofballs.
Not sure where she gets it.
Totally love how she draped these faux berries over her windows.
Her stocking I made a few years back with felt and ric-rac and such.
There ya have it. Sometime when it's cleaned up I'll do a proper tour for ya.
It's all stuff you've seen before, though, since it all came from my place :)
I must say I'm enjoying the camera, even though I need to practice with the flash, exposure and other settings. It takes way better pics right out of the gate than my last canon.
OH! and sorry about Mi4M....I figgered with all the dandy Christmas parties going on, I'd take a week off.
Speaking of which, I linked up with Courtney @ FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE for her Feathered Nest Friday Linky and Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors SNS-Full Home Christmas Reveals!
