Class has been canceled yet again due to snow! Last night we had threats of tornadoes and flooding and now it's snowing outside. Make up your mind mother nature! I guess that makes today a good day to Netflix and get started on some projects. I can't seem to make up my mind on color schemes for Valentines Day! Pink and Red excite my interests but so does Turquoise and Red. Hmm Decisions! Inspiration #1
I honestly can not make up my mind... Any thoughts?
As always it's a pleasure to have you visit my blog! Thank you for stopping by and be sure to FOLLOW! Oh and Like the Facebook page HERE
Hey Guys! I honestly can not believe it has been since July since I last posted! I guess school was going to keep me more occupied than I thought! I did however get a chance to knock out some long awaited projects that I have been itching to get around to! First off my new belt buckle that I have been hoarding all my jewelry to make!
I know it isn't perfect but I adore it! I already have 2 orders for friends! :D Nothing say's me more than Diamonds and Rhinestones! My second project was a Pinterest special! I know i'm not the only one that spends hours day dreaming on there about potential projects that we want to make! So this weekend I decided I was just going to bite the bullet and accomplish a project I had my eyes on for a while.
If you have any old Glade candle's left over or you can make a trip to the Dollar Tree. These make wonderful Valentines Day gifts and they are so cheap to make! Just Modpodge and Martha's Glitter and wham bam your done! Well i've got to scoot I have some studying to get done! Thank You for dropping by and don't forget to comment and share!
I'm going to stray away from what I normally post on my blog for this one entry.. Just be patient it will not be a ongoing occurrence! Pinky Promise :D
I've been a struggling victim of bad genes and weight conscious issues since I hit puberty. I've never been "overweight" or obese per say.. But I have had issues on determining what exactly is considered healthy or what exactly my body image was to look like. In high school I was encouraged to be as thin as possible.. but I was a active, sports playing, well fed girl! There was just no way I was going to live up to others standards! It wasn't till recently that I ditched the persona I learned in high school on what I was supposed to be and embrace what I was! I was a thick moderately in shape woman with curves and that can be sexy too!
Also while in high school I made a conscious effort to cut out ALL sugary beverages and increase my intake of water. As a lifestyle choice that was made at such a early age i've noticed that it's not really a issue for me as a young adult. It wasn't made apparent to me till today on what exactly was consisted in these beverages.
And this is just with one coke a day! When I
noticed this I knew I wasn't bee-sing my cousin when I told her even one coke a day was bad for you! I know a lot of you are asking.. what is she getting with this blog post.. HAHA I know i'm right there with you! I guess what i'm really trying to say is.. For those of you feeling a bit discouraged with your weight or you just need just a place to start.. Maybe cutting out the sugar drinks and adding more water could be a start? I maintain a work out schedule of 5 days a week if not 6. I'm no where near a fitness model material.. but I can say.. the little things do count and just making ONE lifestyle change can help significantly! For further encouragement just bite the bullet and begin somewhere! And remember you don't have to live up to anyone else's expectations! Do what makes you healthy and happy and live life!
I'll have a junkesque post soon I just wanted to relay on my current infatuation at the moment! I mean you have to have some fitness to go dumpster diving!
Last week I was contacted by the lovely Cathe Holden from JSIMnotifying me that I had won the Elmer's Craft It giveaway on her blog! After years of joining in for potential giveaways I actually won one!! For me it was like winning the lottery! After such a HORRIBLE week today I got my lovely surprise in the mail and it really brightened up my day! Thank You Elmer's and Just Something I Made for hosting such a fabulous giveaway!
All my wonderful goodies laid out!
Stay tuned for some projects with the use of these items!
First off I need to say a BIG thank you for all of the new comers who found me throughFPTFY!
I was just ABSOLUTELY blown away with all the wonderful responses and great support from all of you lovely bloggers. I was even more flabbergasted when my "blogging" idols the woman who's blogs i've read for YEARS left comments saying they liked my stuff! Wow really?? You like my projects?? Your site gave me inspiration to do this! Right on! Haha
So now that I got all that out of the way.. I hope i'll be forgiven for not posting in such a LONG time.. Bad Jamie.. Bad! I have had such difficult time these past few weeks with just about everything! Anything that could go wrong did.. and that just didn't leave much time for my "2nd" life! I would like to share with you guys my newest "junkin" auction hauls.. Now please be prepared to have your inhaler by your side because you will LOSE YOUR MIND when you find out how much I paid for all of this stuff. As a reminder I should say everything i've found this past week is only half of my lot.. The rest is in my storage unit so it's not clogging up the house! First up is the quilt I bought..
I was just SURE that this quilt would fetch a pretty penny when I first saw it at the auction. I mean come on it's PINK! I mean anyone in their right mind would just look at this and say WOW.. But no.. It was one of the last things to be sold and I got it for 5 DOLLARS! 5! Bazinga!
Heres a close up of the pattern of the quilt.
Now this is just a sample of a some of the hidden gems I found in a moving box FULL of sheets music! I mean a WHOLE box of nothing but sheet music.. The box is now in my storage building because it's just too big to be in my living room. I'll be working to take the pieces apart and selling some sheet music lots soon! I found these unused valentines, Annie Comic, and ledger cards in the box! And the best part was the box was 3 dollars!
Now I bet your going what the heck.. A pizza box whateves.. Now if you have this attitude you just might miss out on some prime time goodies while out junking. This box was on the floor tossed to the side of the tables.. My first thought is why the hell is their a pizza box at a Antique Auction.. So when I lifted the lid I almost had a prime time Grease Dripping Pizza heart attack!
A WHOLE pizza box full of vintage jewelry.. This is only a bit of what was in the box. The rest is in my storage building ready to be sold.. This was the treasure I hoarded out for my own personal use! What a find.. This was the most expensive thing I bought that night. I paid 15 dollars because this new comer came and insisted on trying to out bid me... SUCKER!
I just get all giddy when I find nurse related paraphernalia. Since my hope's and dreams is to be a nurse in the Army.. I nip this stuff up fast! Lucky for me it was all found in my sheet music box lot! The sheet music with the nurse on it has God's light shinning down on her. I find it amusingly morbid that it looks like blood dripping down her dress! I know i'm weird. The bottom piece was a how too guide on how to save a life from a local funeral home. IDK about you but wouldn't that be taking business from them :D
My next treasure was a magazine sample of mounting corners. Ever since I saw a lady on Antiques Roadshow bring in a picnic basket full of her great grandmothers magazine samples from the 30's worth 2,200! I have secretly been obsessed! You can just imagine my joy when I found this in my sheet music lot! It will now reside with my mini Vaseline sample I found in a sewing drawer. I just LOVE mini vintage!
Next up are the treasure's I found while in Alabama this weekend for some Army Training. I had just enough time to squeeze in a visit to my favorite thrift store. Its just full of the nicest young men who are recovering drug addicts that found their way to the Lord! Praise God!
This is only half of the fabric I found the rest is drying on the line :D
I also found some flash cards and some chalk pastels!
Now this was questionable.. but I think with some paint and some love this will make a nifty little jewelry holder or a place to put my scissors!
I hope this blog post makes up for not posting the past few weeks. I'll try to be better about it! Also if any of you guys know how to turn a button image into a blog button with the code I would GREATLY appreciate a tutorial how to do it! Also don't forget to add Thrifty Vintage Peach's Facebook page HERE!
