A Sunday Stroll in Pictures

Stroll ~ leisurely enjoying your surroundings with no agenda and not a care in the world.

I love Sunday strolls,
Monday strolls,
Tuesday strolls,
Friday strolls,
Saturday strolls,
You get it right?
I love strolls basically any day of the week.
I love not having an agenda, well, at least sometimes. 
I have to be honest, I live by an agenda most of the time, but every now and then I get to throw it to the side and hop in my SUV and go.
Sometimes its near and sometimes it's far.
Sometimes I have my family, and sometimes it's just me, myself, and I.

My latest stroll in pictures- Historic Apex, one of my favorite spots.

Historic Homes that line the street~


Nestled behind this tangled Magnolia tree was...
This beautiful home...
It has all the makings of a great Bed and Breakfast.

 The city is known for its small town feel...

 And Southern Charm...

 It has a lot of unique personality...


Special shops...


With cute gifts...

 And pride...

Thanks for stopping by and strolling with me today.

Swirly Vases inspired by HGTV

I am a magazine junkie. 
(You should see my collection. All I can say it it's in the genes. You should really see my mom's stack. I mean stash. It's massive.)
My latest magazine phase is the HGTV magazine.  
I love watching the HGTV channel.(Doesn't everyone?)
Flea Market Flip being one of my favs.
 The channel and magazine are absolutely amazing and inspiring.
Those of you who follow me know I have a consignment booth in a local marketplace.  
The ideas in this magazine guide me in selecting colors, arranging pieces, and making my booth more appealing for customers.  
Last month while browsing through the magazine, I saw this easy DIY project.  
I love easy. 
I love DIY.  

 
These vases are unique, practical, and amazing.
I decided to give it a try.

Materials:  Misc. spray paint from the garage
clear vases from under your kitchen sink (I actually found mine free at a yard sale)
rubber bands from your junk drawer


Randomly place the rubber bands on the clear vases (or jars.) 
No planning required.






I took the vases outside to spray a light coat of paint on each of them.  
Be sure to turn them upside down to ensure you get the bottom.
Let them dry.

Remove the rubber bands once the pieces have dried completely.
Let the pieces dry COMPLETELY~ 
Then add a clear coat to seal the paint.
Add flowers.
Add candles.
or 
Add nothing and let the pieces be the focal point.
 

 Arrange the pieces in a desired location.



I placed my newly created pieces in my booth neatly arranged on a table display.




 Thanks for stopping by~
