and I’m back.

It feels so good to be back home from my trip to Disney World.  Last night I got the best night’s sleep in my own cozy bed, and this morning my feet feel like they might actually eventually recover from all of that walking.

I have a fun milk paint giveaway planned for later this week …

And I’ll also be sharing a gorgeous hutch that I recently finished but have yet to post about here on the blog …

But for today my plan was to tell you all about the tour around the world that we took in Epcot last week.  As it turns out that was an incredibly optimistic plan.  Between catching up on laundry, an 80th birthday party for my handyman/neighbor Ken and prepping holiday items to take to Reclaiming Beautiful, I really didn’t find the time to pull together the Epcot blog post yesterday.  I didn’t find time for a nap either, and that was way at the top of my to-do list!

But I did pull out lots of great Christmas stuff to take in to the shop.  I’m going through my massive non-collection of vintage glass ornaments and pulling out some to sell, so if you are local and love vintage ornaments even half as much as I do, be sure to check out Reclaiming Beautiful in Stillwater this coming weekend!

I’ve got quite a few ideas swirling around in my head for some upcoming holiday projects, I’m working on another fab giveaway for my blogiversary later this month, and I even have a couple more awesome furniture makeovers to share, so be sure to stay tuned!

  1. Welcome back, you were missed! Looking forward to your future posts, but could it include a tutorial on how you lettered the small chalkboards in the third photo? And I hope that Ken enjoyed his birthday party, I hope to be as active as he is at 80.


    1. Ken is one of those old fashioned people who really don’t enjoy having a fuss made over them. On the outside he seemed somewhat appalled that we threw a party, but I hope that deep down inside he enjoyed it! And I’m with you, I hope I stay as active at 80 also. And great idea for a tutorial. I think I’ve done one before, but I couldn’t find it so it’s definitely time for another. I need to update the chalkboard chair in my kitchen anyway, so I’ll turn it into a blog post. Thanks for that idea Laura!


  2. Welcome back! Do you ever feel that the clean-up from the trip (laundry, putting it all away, going through mail…) dims the warm fuzzy glow just a bit? Even so, a Disney trip generates so many great memories!
    Those Shiny Brite boxes are quite pristine…I may need to check them out and add a few more vintage ornaments to my tree this year.


  3. Can’t wait to hear all about it! You and your blog were missed. I needed some help with a Cricut question and my two Cricut owners were together in Disney, so I was forced to actually think for myself. I’m happy to report I can still think and worked through the situation! Hope it was fun!


  4. Welcome back! We all missed you! Please wish Ken a happy 80th! I wish I had a Ken as my neighbor always willing to help out. What a sweet man. I’m so happy that you made lots of memories at Disney but now it time to give those feet a rest. Can’t wait to see what’s next for us but take the time for a nap. Naps are good…


  5. Welcome back! I missed your posts. I always feel I need a vacation from my vacation. Can’t believe your Ken is 80 years old! Happy birthday to him.


  6. I wish I had another week off to recover from Disney. We did a lot of fun things and a lot of walking.I didn’t even get dressed yesterday. Tell Ken Happy Birthday from us.


  7. Perfect timing … I’m all caught up on your posts just in time to wish Ken a happy 80th birthday!! I wonder if he knows how many fans he has all over the world?! Hope your trip was fabulous!
