This Friday I have a lot on my mind, like the fact that Mother’s Day is this weekend and I haven’t even started stringing pom-pom garland and crafting gold leaf floral bouquets. I’m not a very good blogger, or daughter apparently.
The problem with waiting until the last-minute to start planning your holidays is that you can’t order cute lockets online and procrastination flowers are always on the pricey side. So craft I must and craft I will.
For those of you that are sinking in the same puddle, one solution I have found is Etsy prints. A lot of times after you buy them, the seller will just send you the file to print. Of course, every shop is different but this technique has gotten me out of many a bind.
Here are some of my Mama reppin’ favorites.
1. One of my favorite books growing up.
2. Could this be anymore perfect.
3. Totally adorable.
4. Ain’t it the truth.
5. My mama’s favorite quote.
6. Such a great song, perfect for mothers.
7. My all-time favorite quote.
8. So cute for the new mom.
Have you already got all your mother’s day shenanigans planned out? We luckily have Tim’s mothers present all figured out, thanks to a sweet little hint she gave us at Christmas. Better late than never right, at least that is what I am telling myself. If only my mom gave hints.
What are you getting your mom?
For the moms, what are you hoping for?
Is it inappropriate to finger paint your present still?
I do believe everyone has caught on to the awesomeness of thrift shops.
Macklemore has helped, but so have DIY blogs.
The blogs that inspire you to take on the horrid dresser and paint it kelly green and change out the hardware and voila it’s gorgeous. Oh c’mon it’s just that easy, right? Yea right.
Obviously I was delighted when one of my favorite blogs decided to host an unofficial thrifting challenge.
The challenge was to basically live out the song…if you have ever seen the video then you know I was dying to run across the recliners. All for the challenge of course, but T wouldn’t let me. What a buzz kill.
There was also a scavenger hunt to find the things they rap about.
I wish we would have tried harder for fringe and green gator boots.
I would say we did pretty good finding all the randomness.
We also found a couple other favorites, look at my boyfriend wiggin out.
He was so excited about that oversized hand.
My favorite find was a little more realistic…and if I would have known that a nice clean person took care of these before me then we’d be eating off them tonight. But there wasn’t a full set and what if a hoarder used to own those in a drawer full of cat poop? These are the things that go through my head people.
On top of finding all those sweet spoils….we stayed under budget too.
I think those are Tim’s favorite words, “under budget”.
So what did we splurge our $18.98 on?
Well, as much as I loved that pink suit….it did not make it home with us.
I have big plans to jazz up most of that stuff. Especially the vase and utensils.
What thrift store gold have you found lately?
