Little Projects Update: April 23, 2012

I know I have had a lot of lifestyle posts lately and (other than my puppy silhouette art print) not too many house projects beyond the backyard. But I guess life tends to get in the way of being productive sometimes, right?  Side note: I wrote this post yesterday and woke up miserably sick today… and I was just getting caught up! BOO.  :(

I have been working on a bunch of Etsy projects as well as small things that didn’t seem to warrant their own posts.  So I decided to do a Little Projects Update post to summarize everything in one place!

First things first, the backyard is a bloomin’!  Our grapes are starting to actually look like little grapes (yay!!) and the bunches are huge.  The cacti have started sprouting flowers in strange places.  The honeysuckle vine and lime tree already have blossoms and all of the new plants are thriving in their new home.  And most importantly, we are starting to see some little grass sprouts!  We are hoping that we will have a pretty spectacular backyard in a couple of weeks.

Speaking of flowers, how about another installment of Flowers… by Walker?  On Friday I came home to this beautiful bunch of springtime flowers.  Aren’t they gorgeous? :)

Next, I told you about our second record storage crate from our neighborhood liquor store and promised a picture… so here you go!  The two crates fit perfectly and our vinyl has been organized just in time for a few purchases from Saturday’s Record Store Day 2012. Wooo!!

A while back, my Nana mailed me two more skeleton keys, knowing how much I loved the first one she gave me.  I have them hanging on the wall right now but am trying to think of how I want to display them.  Thoughts?

This may seem really silly but I finally filled my mason jar soap dispenser with Burt’s Bee’s Citrus & Ginger Root Hand Soap (Walker’s parents had it when we visited last year and we have been talking about it ever since).  I think the fact that it is yellow to match our future bathroom color scheme is awesome.  Walker thinks it looks like urine. Oh well…

I know you really don’t care about the soap… I was just using it as a lead-in to announce that we are FINALLY going to get started on the bathroom this weekend!  We have (mostly) picked out the colors and have some ideas for the rest of the space.  You remember our inspiration, right?  That sweet Beatles concert poster? Well our goal for the weekend is to have the walls painted and the art framed.  Not too tough, right? (famous last words…)

So now you have an update on a bunch of the the little things we have going on around here these days.  We have some amazing projects to come now that we have caught up on life a bit (once I kick this stomach bug- yuck)!

    Seems like lots of progress and blooming! I’m really jealous of that mason jar soap dispenser!

      Thanks! I care about my soap too! It’s amazing :)

      In the past I have killed everything I planted in the backyard right away so I am so surprised everything is thriving so well! Guess I picked the right time of year!
