Homebound and Happy

The girl is off to the beach for the week with Kasey's family. 
And so it's just me and Giddy holding down the fort. 
Around the house the radio is on, or I'm singing or talking to myself or Gideon, or it's simply quiet.
The weekend could not have been more peaceful. I needed that.
Camped out in my craft room most of the weekend. My happy place.
I found a homemade dollhouse at a thrift store years ago, and think that it's about time
to pull it from the garage, give it a good dusting-off, and start playing house.
I bought this dresser at the dollar store and figured I could refinish it, just what I did this weekend.
With some white paint (the reddish wood color bled through a tad, which made for a nice finish),
a bit of sanding and shells glued on for drawer pulls, it's mini Shabby Chic loveliness.
I've been on a jewelry box kick lately, finding cheap wooden ones at thrift stores and giving them a facelift. Finished one here a few months ago. The one below started out looking like this. With a couple coats of light pink paint, the tedious task of painting each drawer pull, a coat of Mod Podge, and a little sanding, it's now in Harleigh's room.
 For those of you who don't follow me on Instagram, here are some image posts from the past week.
