So, I don't decorate much, it's intimidating! But I knew I hated these pillowcases on my new (gift from some awesome friends) couch. Then I remembered some pillowcases I had picked up at Pottery Barn Outlet years ago. I pulled the stuffing out of the hideous pillowcases & stuffed them in there & was able to find enough stuffing in my craft closet to even fill up the third pillowcase. Today I need to go pick up one more bag of poly-fil. It looks so much nicer now ... for only $2! :) Oh! And that cute little brown knitted throw blanket on the side was another thrift store find a couple of weeks back, I really like it ... hubby says it hideous. Is it another neon blue type love? For $1.50 I'm keeping it.

Well, I haven't done much the last two weeks. The kids have been playing a lot in their new backyard w/ swingset & yesterday we did venture to the park (high's have been 68-70 degrees!). But I did have something "thrifty" to show you! First off, a disclaimer. I suck at decorating. Suck and make collossal mistakes. There are no mistakes in decorating you say? I beg to differ. I remember when I was pregnant with Hunter & I was DEVASTATED that our walls in our home weren't painted. I cried (I was pregnant & very sick mind you) and finally hubby agreed to paint. I was so excited ... I picked the most horrible neon blue and he actually painted the kitchen walls that hideous color for me! I loved it, it was bad, bad, bad. Oh how happy it made me at the time though. LOL. If only I could find a picture of it ...
