bedroom gets a makeover

yesterday my hubby surprised me! he spent hours setting up a fun little area for me above my dresser in the bedroom. the cool thing is that he did it all ENTIRELY with things we already had around the house.

here are some detail shots:




paul downloaded the pictures of madonna, cyndi lauper and scott baio from the internet. i think he was inspired by this room. i'm going to expand the wall with a bunch of pictures of my other idols from my childhood. either that or i might just put up a bunch of framed pics of early madonna. i'm usually all about the indierock except when it comes to her. that's when i revert back to a 12-year old all over again! : )

Great blog, I hope you keep this one up, I've seen too many of my favorite blogs die out...

I have a travel insurance site. It pretty much covers travel insurance related


Come and check it out if you get time.

Those spam comments are annoying but funny. "I'm seeing but I'm not believing!"

Anyway...what a sweetheart your hubby is! I love it when people display their jewellery. You have some lovely things.

That is too cool! I love the pics--Scott Baio how awesomely random. I used to get stupid comments like that too, I finally put word verification on.

Paul is sooo sweet! What a great idea. It's funny, I was just wondering the other day if you were still a Madonna fan. I guess I got my answer. My weakness is still Boy George. I guess some things will never change, huh?

Nice spam. I'll be sure to mention all of my website next time. LOL

I am envious because:
1) Your hubby did such a teribly cute thing like that; and
2) I never get funny spams like that. They're all just random words :(

Yay Early Madonna!!

I am going to show this to Jason. He needs some help when it comes to making thing look nice...ok, a lot of help...Does Paul want to teach a class on it?
