Old Window Jewelry Holder

Today it got SO HOT 115 degrees hot. Ugh. I'm so over it. I didn't want to take the bambino out in it so we just stayed home and played :) He loves his jumper and today was no exception! I know people always tell me, but he really is the happiest baby. He smiles so much. Here's a taste.

Shane always laughs and thinks I'm obsessed with making things. The truth is I am haha :) I guess it's from being a mom and staying home with him. I mean don't get me wrong, I have always made things but now I think of new things daily. Today I made a jewelry holder with an old window. All you need is an old window, chicken wire and a few nails! That's it. 

If you're like me, you have TONS of jewelry stuffed in drawers and just scattered everywhere. This makes it so nice. Now I will be able to see all my earrings! Theres really only 2 steps.

Get the window ready how you want it. I chose to keep the old vintage feel and not repaint. I like the look :) I had to glue a piece back on but that was easy and you can't even tell.

Next all you do is nail the chicken wire in on the edge of the frame. 

Then VOILA! I just started putting my earrings on here but you will get the idea :)

I just love how the paint is weathered!

I LOVE making things. I am obsessed and proud of it ha!

I'm also going to make one with tree branches for necklaces soon. Excited about it. I'm ready to get all my jewelry organized once and for all. What are some of your favorite blogs with DIY projects? I'm always looking for new ways to get inspired...

Latest Happenings In The Robertson Household

Today has been cra cra as I like to call it. It's 112 degrees outside so I can't play with P outside or really even take him out in this heat. He woke up at 9:45 and hasn't slept since. We have played with a million toys and all we want to do is go to the pool but it's just too hot! I started a new page on Facebook for my clothing line Vintage Couture! Check it out HERE!! "Like" my page because I will be having great giveaways SOON!!

Sunday was Presley's first time in the nursery at church. I was SO nervous and not because I was afraid he would be neglected just because Shane and I are the one's that know how to make him stop crying etc... I checked on him twice. The first time he was playing with a nice girl in the nursery. The second he was being rocked. When we went to get him he was asleep in a swing :) The best part was that when the girl (don't know her name) went to get him, she had put a bear in the swing with him!!!! That little act made me feel SO good. I knew that they really cared and I felt at ease. I love our church MUCHO! I also bought my ticket to the Guts Girls Brunch today and can't wait!!

Yesterday was my hubby's birthday! I made Presley a shirt and we went to his office to deliver the balloons P picked out :) One has Elmo on it and another one has Mickey. We went to Shane's parents on Sunday to celebrate his birthday and had a great time! Yesterday we went to dinner with my parents and we went to Blue Rose Cafe. It's a great restaurant and I love that you get to take your cup home! It's the little things...

Here's a few pics from the day!

Last night when we were getting ready to put P to bed, Shane started singing to him. P LOVES it and it's like he goes into his own little world. This is his face ALWAYS.
