Family Ties (for a Lamp) This title shows my age... loved that show!






Ok, so I have been wanting to do this project in my sons room...he desperatley needs a big boy room. He is 2 and still has his crib in his room (which he has never slept in). 

Well I haven't found any  inspiration for his room yet so I was looking through my husbands ties and I noticed he has a lot that are the colors of my daughters room (thats kinda funny!)  so.....Here is how it turned out, not too bad for some free ties and the pin in the middle I got at Wal-Mart for 5$! 

This is a good project for Goodwill  or even TJ Maxx has ties for 5 dollars on clearance.  Most of these ties I splurged on at Steinmart (for my hubby!) they were around 15$ a piece, and they already have their ties color coordinated for you.  Lu, Lu, Luv Steinmart!

Cute idea! I'm in the same boat with my boys--they're 3, and they're in their "daybed" portion of their cribs. I'm hoping to get my old bunkbeds from my parents' house soon... their room is so sad right now. I'll keep watching you for some inspiration!

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

The only thing that may basically halt me from buying these are the risk that they're not sturdy sufficient to previous years and a long time.

These enable you to steadily improve the burden of single dumbbells, incrementally, which means you usually do
not have to have a wide selection of person dumbbells to carry out your routines.

One more form of flexible dumbbells would be the bow flex

would like by using the dial up program.
