I must-ache you a question and a lot of goodies and projects

Have you been to Target lately? I bought these goodies at my local Target last night.
A Funny Mustache Mug-this mug is soooo funny! All of us had to try it out...Next

New York Mug-my husband's favorite city
London Mug- where i want to visit soon
Old Fashioned Circus Cups- for a flea circus project! Like thecircusfleas on Facebook!

A Large Mason Jar -for all of our family sparkle and wishes and things to do. I cut out strips of card stock and wrote on each one. Then, I went through more boxes left over from Christmas and found a reddish/orange colored one and cut it into hearts. I placed the hearts inside the jar with our family wishes, memories, etc... I left more paper in the milk glass dish to the right to add more!

Heart and Stripes Table Runner-just because V'day is coming up and it all matches. Hearts on one side, stripes on the other

J.R. Watkins Natural Soaps-i had no idea they sold this brand at Target! Smells so good and does not leave an ooey gooey feeling on your hands. Plus, I love old labels and these caught my eye. Are you a sucker for packaging? I am! Hence, why I buy lemonade in the summer packaged in mason jars and wrapped in kraft paper labels just for that alone...
Now onto some projects I've been working on...
Some Master Bedroom projects. My coffee filter wreath project below. I bought a very large frame and spray painted it pure white. Then, I made a square out of Christmas boxes and poked holes through it. I twisted up a bunch of coffee filters into large flowers and twisted them through the holes. I added vintage flowers made out of book pages for the bottom right of the wreath.

Another project is my wedding photo taped with Washi tape and placed inside a wooden frame. I wrote our wedding date with a Sharpie. Antiqued tins are to the right.

Another project is this white frame below. I chalk painted a canvas sometime in 2000 something. I took it out of its retirement and wrote a quote on it by e.e. cummings. 
And lastly,

This cries ORGANIZE ME! So with that I am not done with this master bedroom project, but when the new bed has been delivered and the headboard is complete I'll give you the full room view!

A project for my step daughter...Chalkboard paint frame for her birthday month. This was done with Golden brand paints and grease crayons. She is turning 20 and this is part of her room do-over. You can't really see the effects, but it looks like an antiqued frame. It's just a fun eye catcher on her closet door. Every girl needs something sweet, no matter the age!

Hope you feel inspired! Happy New Year to you!
