It's now mid way through August and it's been quite some time since my last blog post, yikes! I wanted to share some memorable moments in DIY and travel that I've done in the past three months but have never found the time to post.

I never knew that I had the skill to paint. Surprisingly actually anyone can! At least that's what the folks at Painted in Folsom, CA can make you feel. I went with a bunch of co-workers after work, sipped some red wine and painted step by step all the way through, until whoa-la! A cherry blossom picture appeared.
Also lately, I've been finding myself watching a heck of a lot of HGTV and I've been finding empty walls around my house that need some tlc and I finally found myself doing little projects here and there. Below is the jewelry wall I finally put together.
I ended up perusing a little vintage pop up shop in Loomis, CA one day and bought the vintage blue chair, a bracelet jar, and a necklace holder. That vintage mirror was a find at the Sacramento Antique Faire from 2011, see the past post here.
For this vintage empty picture frame, I cut out a piece of chicken wire that was purchased from Home Depot to hold some of my hook earrings for display. Also discovered that idea from a picture I found on Pinterest. Just do a quick search for jewelry wall.
I was lucky enough that my brother-in-law gave me his vintage yellow bamboo dresser mirror which he had since he was a baby. It was just laying behind a door in my guest room so I decided to paint it with Annie Sloane chalk paint in French Linen. I then bought an affordable vintage industrial inspired console table at Cost Plus World Market and set up my refurbished bamboo mirror near the entrance of the house.
Lastly, below are just some memorable pictures I took from my younger brother's wedding at the Oceano Resort and Spa at Half Moon Bay, CA.
My wedding picture collection of all siblings on my family's side is now complete.
