Friday {I mean Saturday} 5

1 | Fancy Blog Update

I'm sure by now you've noticed a few changes around Bee of Good Cheer!
I had been searching for several months for a reasonable Blog designer to give the ol' blog an upgrade and found Rebekah Louise Designs on Etsy. She was so quick to communicate, and took my hodge podge of ideas [bees, watercolor, hexagons] and made them into a jaw dropping design!
She was so very patient and willing to tweak and change every little thing--even a few times when I changed my mind after she had designed something.
We got the entire blog design/social package done in 1 week! That's how on the ball she was.
 If you are in the market for a blog update please don't hesitate to check her out on Etsy.
I can't recommend her enough

2 | Built Ins for our Master

After lots of hunting and thinking, the hubs and I have finally decided to put some built-ins in our bedroom.
We have this adorable area in the corner, and it has dwarfed even the big piece of furniture we have.
I'm excited...and of course Pinterest is bubbling over with ideas.

3 | Finishing our Attic

I've obviously been dreaming A LOT this week. 
The hubs was working on something in the attic earlier this week, and I went up there and was amazed at how much space there was. So immediately I began thinking where we could put stairs so that we could finish that space one day {wayyyy in the future}
Pinterest doesn't help. So many ideas.

4 | Mulled Cider

Tis the season, and my little Fall-loving body needs a direct injection of this stuff.
I found this recipe for Crock-Pot Mulled Cider, and you better believe i'm making a big crock of this for our extended anniversary trip to Gatlinburg.

5 | Dingbats

Since I've got my Silhouette, I've been playing a lot with fun fonts and dingbats.
Here's a list of some really awesome free ones!

I used Stateface on my KY wood print here and it turned out great!

Monogrammed Oil Dispenser

Remember the crafty pay-it-forward a few month's ago?
Well I'm finally getting around to posting the quick DIY post on the Monogrammed Oil Dispenser.

I started with a high quality Olive Oil bottle and some Vinyl.

Using my Silhouette and computer,
{which also doubles as a weight lifting tool if needed}
I drew up a quick design [Step 1]

Weeded the excess vinyl [Step 2]
Moved vinyl from vinyl backing to transfer paper [Step 3]
Then placed it onto Oil Dispenser [Step 4]

I then gave each bottle a quick spray of Acrylic Sealer for some added protection since it will most likely be used in the kitchen.

And that was it.
It could easily be used for a soap dispenser or olive oil container. Or really anything you might need it for. How cute would some yummy homemade dressing look in it?

Thanks for stopping by!

The Garden Patch 2013

 October's Here...ahhh.

Two weekends ago, the hubs and I traveled to Smith's Grove to get our Fall on at a local
Garden center/antique shop/farm.
A few days before I has spyed the pumpkins as they were carting them out at Walmart, 
and knew there was no stopping me after that!

We always try to eat/shop locally, and although they were cheap at Wal-mart, we've got such a treasure trove of local shops it would be a shame to not take advantage of them

Here's a little blurb from The Garden Patch's FB:
 "A 3rd generation farm now offering plants, custom potting, fresh produce, gifts, Kentucky made products, & antiques from our re-purposed dairy barn."

Scroll through and enjoy all the orange in my pics!

 I really loved that red pumpkin! Looked just like a giant, red tomato.
 Having a small SUV makes carrying big things a challenge.  
Obviously the hubs loves stuffing the car to the brim with corn stalks!

If you're ever in the area, hop on by and check them out!
