Beautiful changes...

I've not been creating much these past few days but have been getting things accomplished around the house. With Thanksgiving approaching my thoughts have turned to fluffing our home and getting some much needed projects finished.

The photo below is of our guest bath last year after Brad completely redid it ~ and it truly was dramatic and beautiful!

But after Brad moved out and as time has passed, it has needed a new makeover. Of course I chose to go with creams and whites....with a dash of chocolate!

Sweet Brad came over and painted the entire bathroom again for me, ceiling and all, the most soothing cream color. It's not at all finished but it's what we've been up to around here.

And the amazing paint we used?? Behr. And it is WONDERFUL!!! Brad painted over the dark color with two coats of Kilz latex primer first and then just one coat of this Behr paint. It's pricey but so luxurious and it covers so beautifully.

Did you know you can get some of the most wonderful holiday decorating ideas from wedding websites?? I love DIY projects and so many of the ideas can be created to decorate your home or even a gift!! Check out Elizabeth Ann Designs for starters....

Plus, I've added a few new goodies to The Feathered Nest Shoppe:

So it's been a good day! I'm finishing up another mitten order so I can get them off in the mail. And you've seen enough mittens so I didn't even bother showing them to you :)

Please welcome a sweet new blogger, Marie of Lost Bird Studio!!

Wishing you a beautiful Thursday dear friends,
hugs and love,

good morning Dawn,

familiar with your name from Stampington, I believe this is a first visit to your oh so beautiful creative world (via Diane Knott). Such beauty, I simply have to include your blog link in our community of Beautiful & Creative Women.

Do stop by for a visit as your time permits

Dear Dawn,
As rich and bold as your bath looked in its jewel tone - I'm sure it will be a better fit for you once it is softened and fluffed as only you can do. Don't work to hard on it though - agirl always needs time to play in the craft room.

Hello Dawn, You really do have sweethearts for son's. I've been fluffing for Thanksgiving as well. There's nothing like a deadline to get me going.
I enjoyed all your lovely images in this post as well.
