Vintage Ladder in the Bathroom

My husband and I share a Jack n' Jill bathroom with our daughter.  
It is sorely lacking in style,
mostly because of a lack of moolah.
What's a girl to do on a budget?

Head to some yardsales for some cheap inspiration of course!

Changes to the Living Room

 I made a couple of small changes to the living room.  I am trying to lighten it up for the summer.  I found these great lamps at Cracker Barrel for 40% off, plus I was able to use my employee discount.  I love the texture they bring to the room.  I threw an old coffee sack over this chair.  I really want to replace this chair with a creamy white one, but I will probably settle for a chair cover if I can find one.

Figuring Out How to Be Fabulous in My Fifties

This week I had a birthday.  I am definitely in the second half of my life now - well into it I'm sure.  I wonder where the days have gone. I question what I have done with my life, and where I am going.  I have many dreams and things I want to accomplish.  Often, I wish I could turn back the years.
