What a weekend!!

We have been renovating our new home, as I've mentioned a million times.  SOOOO crazy!!  Today was the day we finish up the master bedroom, he said.  BUT as you will see by these pictures, FINISHED UP WHAT???
An old quilt covering the mattress.  Stuff EVERYWHERE. ugh.

Bad Picture of my bedroom armoire.  It is in the LIVING ROOM!

My bedroom sliding glass door cornice.  On the dining room floor.  Brilliant.

BUT, it is still being put together.  When it is done, you will be the first to know!!!

And, before this, I had time to alter that tin plate I bought from my favorite Junque store for $1.  I placed a doily, a piece of sheet music and a pig wearing a crown from The Graphics Fairy, a piece of my grandmothers lace and a few flowers.  My son large picked out the pig.  I think he is a handsome pig!!  He deserved to be on something special!!

Close up of the art on the plate!!  I don't know where I will put it, but I love it!!

And so, I have to go back to fixing my bedroom.  If I don't do something, I will have no where to sleep!!

I am linking up to the awesome Debbie's Newbie Party, (can you believe it is my last month to join in??)

EEK!!  And don't forget to get in on my giveaway on Screaming Sardine!!  Click the link to try for a chance!!  The winner is being picked tomorrow!!

Have an awesome evening/day!!!

  3. Thats a great redo, I have that pig saved on my computer thinking I needed to do something with him too...ha ha. Great minds think alike and love pigs with crowns?!?!?! Hope you have a great day! Hugs, Kim
    PS love your bed!

  4. I love the pig on the plate. It should be at my home to remind me not to over eat. lol

    My home is in a tizzy too. I live in an old home and every room has been getting a makeover. It can be frustration but so worth it in the end. Hang in there.


  5. Hi Daniella! Breathe girl! It'll all get done when it's least for the last 6 months here with my M & D..that's my motto. Cause if not I'm gonna go bonkers. ...SIGH
    Don't worry about Blogger they'll get the kinks out..anyway I know ya stop by. I understand sometimes you don't have time to sit and type tho. I've pulled my muscles in my back and legs and well, with a cracked tailbone to boot I can't sit very long,( that's why I've been doin weekly posts makes it easier and haven't been able to type) Ya know I got to thinkin Blogger has worked very well for the 4 yrs I've been bloggin..all of a sudden it's goofy...I wonder if someone is hackin in just to stir things up.....okay that's my conspiracy theory for the week..hahaha
    oAnd, my real comment. I love those PS tags
    They are too pretty.

  6. oh hun take a deep breath you will get there know how you feel took me ages to get my room finished,but so so worth it in the end just love your bed hun,its gorgeous and as for your plate that is just brilliant just love love it hugs cherylxxxx

  11. Hi Daniella,

    I know how it feels to have the house torn apart--I went through it last week!!

  13. So happy you took time to do the plate and share but I hope you founbd a place to sleep.
    Redoing any room takes longer than one can ever imagine.

  14. LOVE the pig plate, Daniella! It's adorable. And I don't know what I'd do without the Graphics Fairy. Have fun finishing up with the house and your bedroom. It always takes us 10X longer than we expect things to take. I hope you can finish in the bedroom this week? Have a good one!


  15. Our living room is torn-up right now because we are in the process of converting it into an art studio, so I feel your pain. The pig plate is fantastic! :D Love him!

  16. Hello Daniella,
    I saw your blog on Art @ Home. My daughter's name is Danelle. Your blog is so pretty, charming, and unique. The colors are dazzling. I see you are interested in Interior Design. My daughter, Jess, is an Interior Designer and has her degree in it. I love the movie Gladiator too. In fact, I have a huge picture of it in my family room. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would really enjoy coming back to visit you and seeing all your creative, wonderful ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a beautiful week.
