{ What I Want Wednesday: Furniture }

So I really need some super cute bedside tables and I really don't want to pay $5,000 for each one. I have been searching craigslist for something I can luck thus far! I'm looking for something shaped like this little cutie from Pottery Barn. Too bad I can't just buy these....dang you Pottery Barn and your unattainable prices!

The next item I am very much searching for as an amazing amoire to house my tv in my front room! Agian I really want to find maybe one that I can refinish myself. I really like the looks of this one though...

{ Freebie Friday }

So this week I will be giving away a super fun and colorful set of melamine mixing bowls and a colorful set of measuring cups/spoons. Both set are way fun! The measuring spoon/cups are amazin because they actually flatten down so they make storing them a breeze! This is how it's going to work...leave a comment between today and Sunday night at 5pm and tell me what you love most about this time of year and you will be entered into te drawing!

{ Thursday Quote: Mother Teresa }

*** People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyways.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyways.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see in the final analysis, it is between you and God; it was never between you them anyway. ***
