In Living Color

My whole life I grew up in a house with white walls - with the exception of my room and my brother's room.  I had a purple room and he had a blue one.  Then when I got older I moved into the "guest" room....with white walls.  So excuse me if I get a little excited about purchasing items in living color!!!

Aren't these plates just gorgeous?!?  Thrifted finds - $4 total.  And that lovely fabric underneath....My mom picked that out as the fabric for an apron she wants me to make her.  We're moving up folks.

Say "YES" to color!  These are Core bamboo bowls and trays.  Purchased from a closeout store.  Oh, I love Big Lots!

Ok, this is so not related to color, but....  It made my day when my mom looked at my hair today in all it's bushy glory and said, "Your hair looks really good.  It looks healthy."  Mission accomplished!

You should have seen my hair BEFORE I pulled it back with this scarf.  Can we say, hello Angela!  I'll do some chunky twists tonight.  Wearing it out was just a temporary situation.

ETA:  When I showed my mom the thrifted plates, she said, "Wait.  I have that."  Then she produced one more blue plate that she's had for a long time.  Now, I have three.  :-)

Happy Crafting,


  1. I am so loving those plates Libby! The blue is so pretty. And the fabric for your Mom's apron is gorgeous. Can't wait to see that one. :)

  2. The blue is super pretty. I love that color! What are you using on your hair? It does look healthy :).

  3. @ Kar - I know, right? lol My mom's apron is really high on the "to do" list. :-)

    @ Ayana - I try to use as few products as possible. My hair is so thick that product buildup is easy to achieve. For this, I just washed my hair with a sulfate free shampoo (used Trader Joe's Nourish Spa - I'm not completely sold on that shampoo, but I'm being honest about what I used) and a castile soap. I deep conditioned with Giovanni's Tea Tree Triple Treat Conditioner (amazing stuff!), then before braiding my hair to allow it to dry, I used Shea Moisture's Deep Treatment Masque as a leave in and sealed my hair with NattyButter. I finally purchased some scissors just for hair and I trim scraggly pieces while my hair is in twists or braids. Hope this helps. :-)

  4. LOL @ Hello Angela - your hair does look GREAT. What great finds!!!

  5. I use Shea Moisture products too! I love them :). I am going to try the NattyButter. Thanx for sharing!

  6. Hurray for color! Although I must say, I've been wanting to paint our walls all white for some time. Love your hair! I love Shea Moisture products as well. Unfortunately, they are not available here in Germany. I have to rely on my family to ship me a couple of items now and then.
