Quick Change

On New Year's Day
I tore through the house,
packing up every last speck of Christmas decor
so I could start out fresh for the new year.

Then several days later,
I noticed I still had this hanging in my bathroom.

But I left it
because I hadn't decided
what to put in the frame.

Now here we are in mid-January
and I cannot have this thing on my wall anymore!
As cute as it is,
it was time to go!

But rather than commit to a photo
or worse yet, attempt to do something crafty...
I decided to go simple
until I came up with a permanent solution.

Can you see it through the glare?
It's a quote from a song.

Not much better of a shot...

"Knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky breeze blowin wind thru my hair
Only worry in the world
Is the tide gonna reach my chair"
- Zac Brown Band

Yes, I thought a nice little beachy quote would work well in there.
Maybe that little subtle hint would have pushed my husband over the edge
and he would have agreed on a Caribbean vacation.

Which reminds me...
is officially

It is not happening this year.
I guess my hints weren't obvious enough
(and neither was the begging and pleading - LOL)

Oh well.
He did make up for it
 with those great Seinfeld seats last weekend!

I hope you enjoyed my masterpiece of a wall hanging.
I just blow myself away with creativity these days.
What amazing thing will I come up with next?

While you bloggers are out there
ripping out walls,
refinishing cabinets,
painting furniture...
I am typing up a quote and sticking it in a frame.
Brilliant, I tell you!

Have you made any subtle changes this week?

  1. Love the Zac Brown song...I listen to him down here in SC.

  2. I love it! I think it is the perfect quote and I am so sorry operation Caribbean Vacation has been poo-pooed. :( Maybe next year.

  3. I love what you have done and I may have to copy it!

    Zac Brown is from Dahlonega, GA just a few miles from my hometown. We listen to his music a lot.

    Thanks for sharing a great looking, creative idea.

  4. I, for one, think it's a great idea. Much better than my bathroom walls, since I have left them blank!! By the way, did you watch the season premiere of Royal Pains last night? I did!

  5. I love Zac Brown and hope to see them in concert this year! I am also happy to hear you girls like my little change. Sometimes when I do something small I don't know if I should bother mentioning it -but I am glad I did!

    No, Heather I didn't watch Royal Pains but recorded it. I was too tired last night but I LOVE that show! Can't wait to see it!

  6. Very crafty! Simple but sooo nice! Sorry about the trip...oh well, there-is-always-tomorrow! Have a great day! Hugs

  7. Love love Zac Brown Band!! And that is one of my 'most favorite' songs!!
    Great idea for the frame! Maybe next year for the Caribbean?!!

  8. Well, that's more crafty than I've been so far this year. I havn't done one single thing. Love the quote, great idea. Hugs, Marty

  9. That's so funny. I always have pile of things I forgot to put away after the holidays. The neater I am, the more organized the storing process, the more things I find after it's in the closet.

    Bummer about those black doors. I was looking forward to the after shots! xo

  10. You are my kind of diy'er! I love those words and the thoughts they provoke. How relaxing!

  11. That looks great and love the words!
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  12. I've done this before too. I love personalized art like this, and it looks great too!

  13. Your bathroom looks amazing.

    LOVE Zac!!! Happy Friday!

  14. Now that's my kind of decorating! Wish I could whip up the energy to do my Christmas Deconstruction, though. Working on the tree today - reluctantly. The house already feels naked without the Christmas doo-dads around, the tree is the last thing to go and MAJOR. I even shoveled out the snow in the driveway this morning rather than remove one more ornament from the tree :)

  15. It's lovely and sorry about the Caribbean getaway... stay warm by the fireplace and spring/summer will be here before you know it...!
