Pins of the Week…

Yes… It’s been a while since I did one of my Pins of the Week posts…

 

So without further ado…

Okay… so how fun is this??  Even just for a “playroom” type of thing?

This is one of those rooms that makes me happy-sigh.  I love the elegant marble paired with the cozy plank walls. The tile in the shower. The low contrast calming look.  I just love.

Speaking of bathrooms and tile… I like the throwback look of the hex tile with the updated look of the use of marble material.  Great choice by Chiot’s Run.

Even though I’m not really involved with the storefront any more, my eye is naturally caught by exceptional retail ideas.  This is no exception!  How cool is this clothing display rack?  I mean really? Awesome.

And since we’re on a roll with retail inspiration… How is this for an idea from Create and Babble? I can see it being awesome for a couple rows of bracelets? Cool, no?

This could almost be called the “kids-room/bathroom/retail inspiration post,” couldn’t it?  I really do love this idea from Perfectly Imperfect!  I can’t wait to see the rest of the room when it’s completed!

We went to P.F. Chang a few weeks ago and Handsome Man got their Beef a La Sichuan. The beef was nice and crispy, just how he likes it…  So ever since, he’s been talking about it.  So to Pinterest I went, and what do you know?  Creative Cooking Gluten Free posted a knock-off recipe!

PINS of the Week10-19-

{Pinterest}

Anyone else think these are so simply adorable for fall??!  Yes!  Awesome tutorial by Hello Lidy!

PINS of the Week10-19-2

{Pinterest}

What an awesome way to involve kids and help them learn to set the table correctly!

PINS of the Week10-19-3

{Pinterest}

Speaking of involving the kids with chores…  I think this idea is a great trick for kids! Write directions on the front of the basket and let them choose which task they want to do.

This seems like a pretty awesome idea and a subject on my mind as Handsome Man and I just finished reading our first child-training book.  It’s a Love and Logic book.  Intriguing.  We do have some time before we cross this bridge with Emma, but we’re trying to get a head start!

PINS of the Week10-19-pic

{Amazon}

In short, one of the general ideas is to set perimeters, but offer choices within those perimeters.  For instance with this Pinterest idea, “It’s time to clean the house!  Would you like to choose the bathroom basket or the dusting basket?”  So basically, you are telling them it’s time to clean but offering them a choice as to what they would like to clean.

This idea is somewhat unnatural to me as I tend towards more of a clean-the-bathroom-right-now-because-I-said-so-mom.  I don’t want to be that way though, so I love some of the ideas in this book.  Granted, I hate the concept of having a “blueprint for raising the perfect child” idea because every child is so very different and what works for one totally doesn’t work for the next.  While I don’t agree with everything in the book, this concept does have a lot of ideas that I totally want to implement!

 I don’t like the COMMAND-MOM-do-it-right-now-because-I-said-so extreme

or the

HELICOPTER-MOM-it’s-okay-honey-I-want-you-to-always-be-happy-and-get-whatever-you-want extreme.

I do like how Love and Logic seems to be in the happy middle.

ANYWAY!!!!   RABBIT TRAIL! 🙂  lol!

It’s just on my mind right now because we just finished the book!

BACK to my Pinterest faves!

How cute is this baby gift idea by PHarma!  Just use newborn diapers, a baby washcloth for the blanket, and a baby sock for the hat! SO cute!

Pinterest10-05-5{Pinterest}

I believe this was along the lines of a Skinny Healthy Momma recipe…  I want to try it because it would totally kick the occasional sweet tooth without being unhealthy.  Chocolate Covered Katie just uses coconut oil, cocoa powder, and stevia!

Pins of the Week…

Okay.  Anyone else cooooooold this morning???  I SO need to unpack the cold weather clothes!

Fall is apparently on the rise.  Which makes me nervous.  Because I really wanted to get the house painted before it gets cold.  I totally do not want to go another winter with a pink house. At all.

 

The upside is the roofing is getting done this weekend!  (GOOD BYE pink roof!)

Then we just need to wait for our stucco guy to patch, then we can paint! Yippee!!!

Can you say gray-house-with-turquoise-front-door???!  YUM!

Mom did this for me as a kid. (minus the cute board)

I organized cupboards, cleaned out the fridge, and all sorts of odds and ends jobs just to make some money!  Except back then I made anywhere from .10 to .25 per job not 1.00. Must be inflation? 😉

All I know is I loved it! Haha!
