As most of you know, our dog Valkyrie is like a small toddler. We love her! Don't know what we would do without her. But.....I do believe she is preparing us for a baby. lol!
Valkyrie has a couple of things that are hers- a Kong (her favorite), a blanket, and a pillow. She will play with these things, chew on these things, and destroy these things. However, she doesn't chew on anything else in our house except for her toys. Thank you Lord!
Lately, she has had a field day with her pillow. If she is left unattended (if I am downstairs and my husband is asleep), this is what we find on the floor.
The only thing we can do is laugh! We usually find her after the damage has been done, but she's nowhere near it. Last week, I busted her! LOL!
Valkyrie, did you do this?.....her response:
Have a blessed Tuesday!

Canvas Art: Happy Birthday Rhia!

I have a dear friend who has a birthday next month.... I know it's still a little early, but I have already sent her birthday/Christmas present to her. (The Lee household is about to get crazy and I would rather be very early than the slightest bit late!) She opened her gift (I gave her that choice), so I can post her canvas. :) I think I might have to paint one of these for my house now.
Happy Early Birthday Rhia!
Have a blessed Wednesday!

Nursery: Mobile DIY

It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted for a mobile in Baby Lee's nursery. I wanted something handmade, but I couldn't make up my mind. Then, I stumbled upon this blog. There was a tutorial video and everything (I'm a visual learner!)...the blog is in Spanish, but the video is in English.
I went to Michael's...bought scrapbook paper, string, and paper brads. I spent a total of $7. Then my sweet husband hung it in the nursery. Now that it's up, I can't wait for Baby Lee to see it.
Have a blessed Thursday!

Nursery: Lamp Re-do

When shopping for Baby Lee's nursery, I found several items that I LOVED! Among those items was  a floor lamp from Target. It didn't have the lamp shade I would have preferred and the price was way too expensive for my budget. I'm sure to most people, $70 is cheap for a lamp, but not in the Lee household. I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much money on something. I even tried to find a wooden column at Lowe's to recreate it, but that didn't work out so well. My next stop was of my favorite stores. You never know what you're going to find at Goodwill. Some days are better than others.
I found this lamp for $8. (I don't think I've paid more than $15 for any lamp in our house.) Here's what it looked like before.

I had a white lamp shade left over from another lamp I bought. I decided I didn't like it with the original lamp. I also had silver spray paint left over from another project as well. Total cost for a lamp: $8. That makes my pocket a lot happier than $70.
Have a blessed Wednesday!
