Sorry I’ve been busy

It’s been a long week with my mom going to the hospital and about 3,000 yellow jackets were found in our attic of our house. I promise I will try to give you more updates. Have a good week everyone and wishing my sister a wonderful birthday!

Lamp Makeover

Recently I got a set of 2 lamps at a garage sale for only $5. I went to a different garage in Pingree Grove a month ago and found cute lamp shades to match for $5

5 + 5 = 10 dollars total

Then, I decided today thatI was giving them a makeover with spray paint.

Garage Sale Find

The frame wasn't in bad shape, it had no nicks in it. I really didn't like the bronze color of the frame it made it look dated. But thanks to a little spray paint it turned out great! I looks very modern and new looking.

My new gift

click image to enlarge

This Hoover vacuum is amazing.
Its bagless and light-weight.
It very easy to clean. 
My boyfriend bought me this vacuum
for my birthday from Costco. Thanks =]
The part I love the most is the rewind button.
It rewinds the cord for you! Amazing, I know!!
No more bending over ever! 
Just step on a button and presto 
all nice and neatly wrapped up.
I did a test between 
my mom's 600 dollar vacuum 
and my 150 dollar vacuum.
First my mom vacuumed the family room
then I went in after and
I filled my vacuum up with dirt! 
I can't believe her's missed all the dust and hair.
Gross! Now we can really be healthy and breathe again,
Thanks to my Hoover UH70205!!!
