Then we headed of to IKEA to get a ton of stuff for our house and I’ll post about that later (when the house is clean). Then we went to Pottery Barn where I scored this super cute squirrel S&P set for $3.

Since we were at the mall and it took us forever to find a space we decided to put around a few more stores. I forgot what it was like to go in a store and not have to scan everything under 4ft. for insurance purposed and constantly utter “no touch”. We went in West Elm where I scored these silk pillow covers for $4/ea. and this cute little rabbit for $5.

Now to show you all the little things that have been done around here as a result of 10 straight days without leaving my cave. First I got in this adorable print from Etsy that I put in an unused frame next to my Nana’s old potato ricer up on top of our cabinets.

Then I ran across this little hammered copper tile that Micah made when he was a kid. Our house is full of stuff that his dad, the kids, and I have painted and I really wanted to display something of his. I think it looks PERFECT added to our backsplash.

Remember the bookcase that was in our bathroom that I said I was going to re-purpose, well I turned it on it’s side and painted on some legs to match our kitchen table and I think it looks really groovy.

Mom gave the boys this cute little wooden elephant I gave it a whitewash and put it under the hall table. I just love the irony of a “white elephant” in the room (since there’s usually one anyway).

Since I started cleaning out the guest room while trapped by the ice I really wanted to get rid of anything we didn’t need, so I sold the boys old crib, then I started looking on craigslist for a new chair for their room (they had completely destroyed their old rocker). I sold the crib for $75 and paid $80 for the chair so I like to think I actually bought it for $5…amazing deal!!! It’s a glider rocker and it’s so perfect for them, we had trouble fitting both of the boys in our lap during story time but this chair is the perfect width to fit them both.
