Monday Made It & Merry Mondays

One of my favorite things about being out for summer break is finally having some time to spend crafting, decorating and planting! To share (and keep me accountable of actually getting things done) I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics: Monday Made It and My Pinterventures: Merry Monday!
My Pinterventures

 My biggest accomplishment (and on going project) over my first two days of vacation was this blog!  I spent two full days learning how to create new images for my blog and how to add them. I am very proud of myself and very grateful for all the tutorials that help me through {read about them here}! I am still working on my design and learning more and more about blogging and design - it has been a fun journey so far!!

 My other share for this week is the beginnings of my new great room design. I have always been eclectic but with a "Tuscan" feel. You know the look - rich, deep burgundies, purples, oranges, greens, etc. Living so close to the beach for almost 10 years though has me wanting to lighten up! I am slowly but surely adding more of a "beach-ish" color scheme and look. Here is where we are so far. I am trying with all my might to pick out a new paint color - after 3 years this "Buy Me Beige" needs to go! Any suggestions are always welcome!

My new china cabinet from Silverhill Furniture - I had been eyeing this store on my way to the beach for a while, and finally found time to stop! {Custom painted by Fish River Furnishings.} The clock from Hobby Lobby really helped change the entire look of my room!

 Found this old trunk in my home town at the most amazing place - Resurrection! Tons of fantastic repurpose finds! 
 Another great find on the way to the beach Big Fish Trading Co.

I have a lot of craft plans and hope that with the help of this linky, I will stay focused and bet things done!

What have you made? Comment below and link up with 4th Grade Frolics and My Pinterventures: Merry Monday and share!
