What I Pinned {Wednesday}

It may have been a couple of weeks since I've posted a "What I Pinned {Wednesday}," but rest assured I have still been pinning like crazy! Right now I'm kind of on a bathroom kick. I think it's because every time I'm in our bathroom I'm dreaming of ways to fix it up and make it more suitable to our my taste.

Our master bath has some seriously hideous wallpaper. Not just wallpaper, but floor-to-ceiling wallpaper AND a floral border. I know. It's all rose and hunter green, circa 1990's. But it has an amazingly huge (and deep!) garden tub, and plenty of room to play, so I'm on the hunt for some awesome inspiration. Here are some incredible bathrooms I've found and pinned recently.

We won't be doing anything drastic like re-tiling or flooring, but I LOVE these colors and those scalloped tiles are absolutely incredible! Look at the detailing in the flooring!

I love the rustic feel of this bathroom. The barn wood covered wall and natural stone tub structure make me feel all earthy and cozy inside, haha! It's perfect with a little greenery, and white accents.

Speaking of earthy, check out this eclectic tiling pattern. It's so natural looking, and I just love the "randomness" of the pattern. P.S. I think the sink would be awesome in any bathroom!

Huge tub AND a fireplace? 'Nuff said...

Another "natural" bathroom... I love the open concept, and the pebble flooring with the stone walls would make me feel like I was showering in my waterfall again!

I love the contrast in this bathroom. The grey is stark but soft and the white allows the natural elements (the basket, wood bench, plants, etc.) in this room to stand out. 

So far, I think this is my most realistic favorite. We wouldn't have to change too much, but it would give the bathroom a much needed facelift. The green is so fresh, and when coupled with the white it just brightens up the whole space.

Tutorial Tuesday & Linky Party - An Old Fashioned Sleepover

Well... not actually. But that's what it felt like! My very own bestie came to visit me yesterday all the way from Lubbock. Well, actually her and her man were down this way visiting his fam, so she stole away for the day to come and hang out with me and Baby A. We spent the afternoon chatting away, playing with my little Baby A, and doing things that girls do. Like my hair. It almost reminded me of when we were 13 and staying up late watching Princess Bride and talking about boys. :)

Did any of you see Lauren Conrad's funky July 4th hair on her blog the beauty department this month? We did. It was incredible! And as often happens, we were instantly in love and had to try it out. Unfortunately, since Lauri is still growing out her bob from last year, I am the only one with hair long enough to give it a go at the moment. But just wait 6 months and we'll be back with pictures of her hair too! ;)

Ready for this??

What do you think?


We could not have been happier with the way it turned out. Especially since we were both new to the whole self-bleaching thing. Thank goodness, I would have hated to post to you today about how we burned my hair off last night, haha! Hopefully I can get some better pics when the hubbs gets home from work later. It's kind of hard taking pictures of your own hair... especially when it's soooo long.

If you want to try it out, the beauty department has their tutorial HERE. Of course, I am always happy to answer questions if you need me to! Luckily, I got lots of great info from the lady at Sally's Beauty Supply, so if you purchase your goods there don't be afraid to ask for help!

These are the colored dyes that I used. They came highly recommended by Sally's lady, and they're supposed to have great holding power. They're also really vibrant, and that was a huge plus for me. I think Sally's had about 15 different colors in this brand:

We only ended up using a tiny bit, so I probably have enough dye to do this another 50 times, haha!

Enough of my silly antics, let's see what you've been up to! Link up your crafts and projects below! Be sure to use the direct link to the actual post, and be nice and go visit some of the other great links on the list. :) Feel free to grab a button from below and get linking!

As always, I hope you all are having a great week!!

Hi all!! I've been meaning to get in here and show off some of the great things that you all have been sharing on the Tutorial Tuesday linky party. Since I didn't do a post this week, I left last week's party open {it will be open until Monday night, so go ahead and link up your projects!} and there's all kinds of fun stuff going on over there.

There are so many great links, that I thought I would narrow it down into groups. This Feature Friday is focusing on all the great sewing projects linked up this week. Check them out...

Precious "Little Birdies"... New model photos!

Have I ever told you guys how much I love getting photos from etsy buyers? It's seriously one of the biggest perks of the job. It never fails to put a smile on my face every single time.

This week I got some of the most adorable pictures from Brandy in Maryland of her TWIN nieces that she sent Little Birdie onesies to. Brandy actually won our Facebook contest back in March, and she picked matching Monogrammed Angel Wings onesies to send to her nieces. Check out how precious these two Little Birdies are.

Look! They even have matching tutus and headbands!!

And a little shot of their "wings" from the back.

SO precious! Thank you so much Brandy for sending these to me, and also a special thanks to these cuties' Momma for letting me share the pics with you guys. :) I hope you all are having a great week!

If any of you have photos you would like to share, feel free to email them to me at

Tutorial Tuesday & Linky Party - A Little Taste

I don't know about you guys but I feel extra inspired this summer. I have so many things in the works that I haven't finished even ONE yet! But that's okay, at least I'm having fun. :)

Since I don't have a finished tutorial to post yet, I thought I would post some progress pics of some of the things I've been working on.

A little cookery...

A little painting...

A little weaving...

A little planting...

A little backyard building...

And LOTS of things I don't even have photos for yet. Whew! It makes me dizzy just looking at all these. Methinks there will be some late night blog writing going on in the next few weeks, haha!

In any case, I am still excited to see what you all have been working on, so don't forget to link up below! Grab a button if you'd like, and feel free to link up as many projects as you have. Just please be sure to link to the ACTUAL project post to save us all some browse time. Now... link up! :)
