10 Minute Makeovers

Good Morning Friends!

Today I'm joining The Nester's 10 Minute Makeover linky. I love the idea of trying to make a pretty change in my home in 10 minutes. The good thing about that is it doesn't allow me the time to obsess. That's a good thing.


Do you see this pretty little girl in the tin sign? Well, she is hiding a plug that is placed in the worst spot in my kitchen. She's been there for awhile but I kept thinking she was lonely.


Last week, I picked up a few things to go with her. She is now resting in a basket with some plates and a pretty little towel I found on a clearance rack.
10 Minutes to Loveliness!!

I just love the plates that are in the basket and they will rotate around the house from time to time. Now, go on over and visit The Nester to see what other's are up to. I am!

  2. What a precious idea, dear one. Just as cute as can be!
    Many thanks for giving me the heads up on this fun thing...I didn't know about it. Now, I am linked. I made such a mess of posting today...don't know where the heck my brain was. I already had one post on pre-schedule mode, decided at the last minute to do a tablescape Thurs., posted it, forgot to delete the OTHER posting, so it, too is on there, and then....the Nester posting.
    Am I losin' it, Stacey??? ;O)
