A little of this/that and some thrifting on the the side

 I love That were starting to get longer days
in Alaska now.
 Mimi and I found this sweet umbrella thrifting 
It now hangs sweetly above her bed.
 Found these cute little roosters.....
 and this daisy lamp!
 This great pot
 I'm going to give this a try.
 had fun changing out the laundry room shelves

frosted with sprinkles in the shape of hearts
but thats about it.
