Making a Back Splash


Yesterday I took the tiles I turned into coaster and turned them into a "back splash" for over my oven.  Here is the final product:

Here is a close look at them.

Here is another look.

I really like how they turned out and my husband was even more impressed.  I am going to create a page about how I create certain things.  

Also, if you did not know it has been Christmas at my house for the last couple of weeks.  Our excuse is that one night our internet and TV was down. GASP! And we did not know what to do. So, I suggested we go to Target (my favorite store) and look at their Christmas Trees because I noticed they had some pretty good deals.  We ended up getting a 7ft Christmas Tree for $125 (best part is it went on sale later that week and I went back and got $25 back!). We got back home and decided we could not leave the tree in the box, so my lovely husband put it together and we decorated it. Since then I have been adding decorations to our place. I love how it is turning out. Here are a few pictures:

This is our living room. See the tree on the left? That was going to be our Christmas Tree at first, but my 
husband said we could get a bigger tree. It put a big smile on my face. Looking at the wall on the left
it makes me realize how bare it really is. I must start working on that.

This is our kitchen. I put lights around the window and the lights are actually snow flakes. They have them at Target for $2.50 each. I thought it was a great deal. Love the dollar section.

So, I bought the wreath from Target and put bigger ornaments on it, but it did not look right. Thank goodness for the dollar section at Target because I found these great little ornaments for a $1 and you got 16 of them in a tube. So, I bought a few. 

This is in our bathroom. There are the Target ornaments again. 

This is in our bath as well. I bought the frame from Target for $5.99 and the created the green back and the JOY letters. I also bought the vase at Target for $3 and the ornaments in the vase for $1. My mom always decorated every room in our house, so I had to do the same. 

This weekend is will mark 6 months of marriage and we are going away to the coast tomorrow. I can not wait to have a "mini" vacation with my husband. I hope you enjoyed my post of Christmas! Oh and the "back splash".

Have a GREAT weekend!
