What I've Been Up To...

I had my big state test on Tuesday, so for the past couple of weeks I've been studying non-stop.  Studying does not leave a lot of time for crafting.  Still, I was able to squeeze in a few random projects.
I bought these wood arrows from Etsy.  They came un-stained; so I had my husband stain them for me.  After a few coats, they were the exact shade I was looking for.  We added them to a wall in our dining room.
I gave these little Dollar Store milk bottles a quickie makeover with some turquoise spray paint.  They look so much better now!
I played around with this wall behind our front door too.  It lacked personality with just the coat hooks looking back at us.  So I added this cute Kohl's tote and a straw hat.  It looks more inviting now.
I've also been doing some online shopping.  I finally scored Decor Steals bread box.  It's a little bigger than I anticipated.  For now, it's on top of our fridge until I find a more permanent home for it.
Lastly, we took a quick trip to Gettysburg, PA.  We had an awesome time camping out with the boys.  Lots to do and see.  We also learned a great deal about the Civil War.  Everyone loved it and we agreed to head back in the fall for another visit.

That's about it.  What have you been up to?

Hey Girl!
I sure love your wooden arrows and the painted bottles. I didn't know you could find such cute bottles at the Dollar store! I like how you styled the wall hooks.

Glad to see you are enjoying your summer.

hugs,
