Snow Day 2015

North Texas finally got some snow. Love it! Last year we had ice, and it was looking like that would be all we would see this year. But, finally, yesterday morning, real live snow fell. It's beautiful, and cold, and NOW...I'm ready for a lovely Texas Spring. :)

Etsy and Pinterest are my before bed addiction routine. I lay there, on my phone, scrolling and pinning and scrolling and favoriting (is that a word?). My eyes start drooping. I will surely NOT get up at 5:31 am when my alarm goes off. (Does anyone else do this? I set my alarm for 5:31, because my snooze is 9 minutes long, and I know I won't get up on the first buzz. So I snooze, and then I can get up at the nice, even number of 5:40 am. Unless, I snooze again, and world? ...totally rocked.)

I digress.

Here's what currently has my attention on etsy:

This mug from PrintableWisdom.  I love everything about it! Even the model's shirt!

 Vintage owl coasters from BettyandDot. Look at their cranky little faces!

This pillow by TableclothShop - lest we forget this beautiful world God created for us!

Gah!! I even love the earthworm! Print by thewheatfield.

And these butterflies by thewheatfield too! I need a BIG ol print of this one!

If only I could hide all the packages before my hubs saw them, and if only he weren't quite so observant! ;)

And then there is Pinterest...

This safety pin bracelet reminds me of the 80s. Anyone? I'm pretty sure I had safety pins with beads on my jean jacket. Along with my 'Gag me with a Spoon' button. 

Sadly, this iphone repair kit caught my attention because I am currently with broken screen. It happened 2 months ago. $100 to replace a screen? EEP! No. I know, I know...I should have purchased the insurance. (eyeroll). I think I'll just upgrade to the Big iphone 6! Makes total sense, right?

Before I share these next 2 items, I have to tell you, I am not a DIYer. My husband is not a DIYer. BUT, I have big plans for us to become DIYers. My husband, not so much. This is a work in progress.  Once I convince him, this is what I'd like to do with my round kitchen table. Just not sure what color yet.

And I really think we could do this light fixure too. We already have a fixture like the bottom will be free as soon as we DIY the hall bathroom! But wait, round table and long rectangle light fixture. Is that a decorating faux paux? What do you think?

And finally, can I just encourage you to type 'bunny butt' in the search field of Pinterest? Please do this. Serious cute stuff with bunny butts...even some actually real. bunny. butts! Like this:

and this:

I do not, however, suggest googling the same phrase.
