White and Whimsical


My crazy week has finally arrived and tomorrow the plumbers will be taking over my home. I have spent all week furiously painting to clear out a spot in my garage. I also am one of those people who cleans their house for the plumbers. My husband will never understand but maybe some of you ladies will. I mentioned that I'd be going to visit the in-laws for a few days. My daughter is always excited to see her grandparents and I haven't mentioned it to her, because the second I tell her she'll expect us to get in the car right then.

We have a pretty amazing offer from my sister to go with her family to Disneyland too! Our daughter has never been and doesn't even know that it exists. She's just starting to enjoy the Disney classics. I'm just so excited to see her face when she sees it all. We'll be heading off to Disneyland 3 hrs after stepping off the plane from Grandma's house. Pretty crazy huh?

I also get really stressed whenever we leave for a vacation and can't bring another member of our family, my weimeraner Julius. If you don't know what a weimeraner is that's ok, all you need to know is they're as neurotic as I am. They're a family dog and if they're away from their family even for short amount of time, they're crazy and destructive. I always pick him up from boarding with sores all over his nose from rubbing it on the kennel.

My husband knows how a can't relax and vacation when I have to worry about him. Since he is such a great hubby, he found a great boarding facility. The dogs play outside all day with the other dogs on a playground and splash pad, and they only are in kennels when they eat. At night they have fake 'living rooms' where the dogs all sleeps on couches and their beds and they can watch TV. This last part sold me as well- they have cameras online for you to see what they're doing 24/7. I can breathe easy this whole week. Well, almost, I'll still have perfect strangers in my house all week while I'm away.

Anyway, on to the furniture. You may know already that I have an Etsy shop. It's not huge, I just can't keep up with the demand here in Vegas as well as across the country where all my Etsy customers reside. When I buy a piece that doesn't already have a plan to go to someone here in Vegas, I list it on Etsy for custom painting orders. This little 3 drawer chest of drawers was on there for a week or so before getting snatched up for custom painting. Is this a large nightstand or small dresser? I don't know, but it does have some amazing details on the drawer fronts. I was asked to paint everything white with no distressing. Just white, classic and beautiful. I hope she loves it!

  2. As the daughter of a plumber I will tell you that the only homes my dad ever mentioned were the horrible awful hoarders homes, haha. As long as the area they're working in is clear, they're happy! :)
    Enjoy your vacation! I hope your pup does alright while your family is away. I stress out SO much whenever we leave our dogs- especially at my parents because they have to stay outside and our husky is an escape artist, lol.

  4. I wish I were the one taking care of Julius. I wish I were going to Disneyland, too. I think there might be some problems because yesterday Grey kept saying he did not want to see Mickey Mouse.
