You are my Sunshine Part 1

I got lazy with my blog posts lately, aka more busy with “real” life. We have been visiting with the soon to be member of the Kemmerer family. Eclipse the horse. This is a dream come true for me, I’m a little more excited than the kids. 😍


So my Twin girls are turning ONE next month. Wait what??? I seriously can’t believe it! Time to start the party planning! My theme is Sunshine and Lemonade. Colors are yellow, pink and purple. 


Today I made a sweet sign to hang in the kids bedroom, and use for the party as well.

I used some already cut old pallet boards and picked out some wood letters that fit on the boards. 

I didn’t have another “P” so I put painters tape over that spot.

I used white spray paint. Spray back and forth from about a foot away so you don’t spray the letters off the board. 

Let dry outside then remove the letters. Since I was missing a “P” I had an extra step. I removed the tape, moved the “P” over, held a board over the already finished part and sprayed the new “p”.


For the “make” sign I wanted to hand paint the letters white and leave the pellet board brown. First trace the letters.

Then paint them in with white paint and a little paint brush.

To hold my sign together I used scrap prices of pallet board. My husband was home from work so with a kiss I convinced him to drill and screw the sign together for me. 😊

All finished! Cute for the kids’ room and party decor. 🎉

I always let out happy squeals when I finish a project that I’m pleased with…tell me I’m not the only one that does this…

DIY Rustic Wall Vase

I’ve seen plenty of these on Pinterest but every one is unique. They are so versatile, and simple to make!

You will need:

  • Glass vase of any shape you choose. I chose a milk bottle.
  • Pipe hanging band – used to secure vase to board – found in the plumbing and piping section at Lowes.
  • Rustic board – I used wood from a pallet I had laying around.
  • Screws and screwdriver
  • Fake flowers or even better some fresh wild flowers.

If you are using a pallet board you will need to cut the boards to the size you want them. I made mine just a little bigger than my glass.

Use some metal snippers to cut the pipe hanging band. You want it to be pretty tight to hold the bottle from sliding.

That just about wraps it up. Pick an empty space on your wall and hang  your new decor.
