Lauren is Back with a Hobby Lobby Haul!

Hello eveyone!  And welcome to the new year!  I am so excited to see what 2017 has in store for me!

Speaking of stores…have any of you been to Hobby Lobby?

If you have, you can completely understand what I am talking about.  If you haven’t, then you might understand after this post.

Now, I just recently moved into a new place with someone I met on Craigslist.  Long story short, she is probably the best roommate ever because we are so alike.  We have so many similarities, it’s scary.  Oh well, Amber is awesome!

Except that she mentioned that she had never been to Hobby Lobby.  And I had to change that immediately.

So we made a pit stop at Dutch Bros Coffee (we are part of the Dutch Mafia lol) and continued to Hobby Lobby.

While shopping through the store, we bought some stuff for our back patio which is going to be a trailer park/camping/gypsy theme.  So we bought some awesome stuff to go on the patio.

First of all, how awesome is that flamingo wind chime????  I said that if we were doing the camping/trailer theme, we had to get a flamingo of some sort.  And this one is adorable so why not?  And the camper bird house?  ADORABLE!  We also bought some geckos to hang on the fence.  They were so cute we couldn’t pass it up.

And finally I bought this sign for my crafting area.

Perfect right?

Now I don’t normally plug my own stuff, but I want to tell you about my Etsy shop.  I started a shop called BlitzyBlingArt where I have stuff that looks like the British flag that I blinged out last fall.  If you want to check it out, that would be great!  I try to post stuff regularly to let people see what I sell!

Thanks for stopping by!

Springy Tablescape

Hello and welcome to winteng…sprinter…wintering?  Whatever.  The time of the year where it is too warm for winter or too cold for spring.  Where the mornings are perfect for sweaters, jeans, and flip flops; but the afternoons are greats for shorts, tank tops, and flip flops.

Oh the struggle is real!

But, nonetheless, it is getting closer to the springy weather and closer to pretty colors from all the flowers.  So, why not get started early with a pretty table setting?

I really like how all of the colors came together on the table setting.  I like the pink tablecloth and how the patterned plates add to the brightness and happiness of the tablescape as a whole.

These are the two different place settings.  One is a floral plate on top of a plaid plate with a striped napkin while the other is a plaid plate on top of floral.  They look great together and the colors compliment each other very nicely.

Hobby Lobby Sign

I added this adorable sign that I purchased for Hobby Lobby.  I completely agree with this saying because who doesn’t like pink?

Flowers and Necklace

I added some pretty pink and white flowers in the centerpiece.  They sit in a mason jar that mom decorated for me for my birthday two years ago.  I also added a tree nut necklace with pink flowers that I bought in Hawaii.  I thought that it added a lot to the centerpiece.

Cupcakes

And finally, who could forget the cupcakes.  I added some delicious cupcakes that have matching blue frosting to keep with the colors of the tablescape.  They are a sweet blueberry.  Yum!

So this completes my tablescape.  I love how it turned out and can’t wait to see what my roommates think of my creation!

CORNER NEWS-FEBRUARY 20

Happy Saturday! Always glad to have a weekend to get caught up on home stuff! I made a quick (!) stop at Hobby Lobby yesterday and found this cool whale’s tail book-end.  Maybe it was supposed to have another end, but this part was on clearance, so I snatched it up. I love it! It fits perfect with my beachy theme, plus it’s neutral enough to go with anything.

I also picked up this wooden tree in the new spring section. Karianne, over at Thistlewood Farms featured these and a some cute wooden birds on her blog and I just fell in love with them. They are the perfect accent for spring! I LOVE her blog and her style!  Her mantle looks so much better than mine. You can click on Thistlewood Farms above to take a look!

Guess where we just came back from?! Did you notice we seemed to be a little bit absent from the blog this past week? We were enjoying lots of sunshine and warm weather. Maybe this is why I liked the whale’s tail so much! I will be blogging about this soon!
