{post brought to you by Pink Door Design}

Our friends from Houston, Jared and Abbi, are the proud parents of this adorable little gymnast...Miss Madison. I snatched a picture from Abbi's blog so everyone can see Madison at her birthday party in all her cute pinkness. Check out her personalized polka dot gymnast shirt! What a cutie patootie.

Madison loves to flip, turn, tumble and play soooo her birthday invitation was designed specifically for her gymanstic themed party. I had a blast designing her invitation because {1} I love pink girly invitations and {2} I absolutely adore Miss Madison!

Jared & Abbi, thanks again for choosing me to design Madison's invites!

Shoot me an email if you are in need of a custom-themed invitation :0)

Upcoming Invitations: 
Caleb's "C is for..." Birthday,
Love Birds Couples Shower,
 & Cooper's Sock Monkey Birthday!

I have a weakness for Home Goods. I visit this store once a week. No lie. This little piece was spotted at Home Goods on CLEARANCE. If you are familiar with Home Goods, you know that their goods are already wonderfully priced. Which means, I couldn't pass up the clearance price on this piece even though it needed some serious TLC. 

Here is the BEFORE picture. 
Don't mind the tiny hole in the top drawer. Minor flaw, right? 

Below is another BEFORE picture with the drawers rearranged (to cover the hole) along with some black paint on the face of the drawers. It only came with two pieces of glass since the others were broken out when I purchased it.
It sat in our entry way forever (as shown below) because I wasn't sure what to do with it.


I really had to think long and hard about this one. After visiting the Meddlesome Moth
I had some "cents" knocked into me. Their beer tap back-splash is made of nickels. Such a neat idea. 

 Soooo I stole their idea and used pennies instead!


I needed the coins to match our gold circular mirror and the copper color was a much better match...
not to mention pennies cost less than nickels, but I'm sure you knew that. 

Once I hot glued the pennies to the drawers, they were TOO copper so I hit them with some gold paint. 
Here is the FINAL product!

Bayley agrees it was a centsational project....especially since everyone has TONS of pennies laying around their house! 
Don't overlook the ugly ducklings. They just need a little more love. 
There you have it, my two cents worth...or in this case 726 cents!
