Giveaway winners, some updates, and what you can expect in the next few weeks!

Happy May Day to you!


I woke up to this gorgeousness outside!!  And I can’t wait to get to work outside mowing grass, planting flowers, pressure washing, and doing some spruce ups on the deck.

But before I do I wanted to announce the 2 winners of the last Home Depot gift card winners from last week.  But before I do that… Here’s a few things I have been busy working on that you will be seeing posts about in the next 2 weeks.

Remember this diamond painted accent wall?


Well that same wall color is now painted throughout my entryway and living room!  I can’t wait to show you the before and after.  Still trying to do some rearranging of décor/things on the wall then I can show the after!  I am absolutely LOVING this new color.  Plus, I plan to share the process on how I chose the perfect paint color.


I have also been working outside…



I hope to get all my pots filled with flowers by this weekend too.  Trying some new things in my pots this year and hope it works!

Oh and that old brass light fixture no longer hangs in my stairwell – a beautiful yard sale one took its place!  (That’s still the old paint color in the stairway – going to have to brave a day on the ladder to get this stairway painted – not looking forward to that!)


And I plan to get out the outdoor Mr. Clean and outdoor Magic Erasers and take care of this ugliness on the siding!


If you didn’t see my post last summer about those cleaning products, you have to go check it out!  back door before after

Mr. Clean Outdoor Magic Erasers are AMAZING!!!  (And I am not getting paid or perked to say that anymore.  I fell in love with them doing that post last year and bought more myself to use this year.)

If you have vinyl siding, or white painted doorframes or window frames, or a white painted porch – you NEED to pick some of these up!  I always think I am going to have to repaint my white railings on the front porch but after washing them down with these they look newly painted without all the work.

And I had a fun day shopping at 1/2 price day at Value Village and FINALLY got to yard sale shop for the first time in a month last Saturday and have a few fun things to share with you tomorrow.

So there’s what you can expect in the next few weeks! Smile  So glad to finally have some projects done (or in process) that I can start sharing again – it has taken me quite a while to feel like I am catching up, but finally feel like I am beginning to slowly.

Thank you so much for all of you that read my blog, comment, participate in giveaways, comment on facebook, etc. I truly enjoy interacting with you and sharing my home and frugal decorating journey with you!  I am thankful that I can enjoy getting paid for all the work I do here via some sponsored posts that come my way and also pass some love on to you with giveaways from time to time!   There is no way I could afford to give away $150 in gift cards but thanks to some amazing sponsors I get to share that with you!

So here’s the winners:

$100 Home Depot gift card and P&G price pack  goes to Allison McCawley

$50 Home Depot e-gift card  goes to Nikki Barker

You have both been contacted by email and will have 24 hours to claim your giveaway.
