Words That Really Matter



Romans 5:1-2 
 1 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
(NLT)

Revamped Dresser

Time for the reveal! Here is the "after" shot of the dresser I made over for E's room.
Remember the "before"? A tad different, isn't it?
 I found this dresser at the thrift store two weekends ago for $15...yep, that's right! They were having a 50% off sale on all furniture. I almost had a heart attack thinking someone else would try to swipe my pet fur, mouse poo & dust infested dresser before I had the chance...but luckily, no one else was interested:o)
So I started by deconstructing the whole piece. That was the easy part:o)
 The tough part was making the MDF box to go in the center of the dresser. This was my first attempt at using a table saw, and let me just say that there was a lot of heavy praying going on while using it. On three different occasions, MDF literally shot off of the table saw..thankfully I wasn't on the receiving end!
 Since we currently are no longer in possession of a miter saw, I had to use a miter box to cut the trim pieces, which was A-O.K. with me after the frightening experience with the table saw! I used 1 1/4 inch trim to frame out the box, and base board trim for the base.
 
 I filled in the gaps with some wood putty, and got it ready for paint.
 It now resides in E's room with new hardware. 
 He is extremely excited to have it in his room now....
 So much so, that he thought it was a great place to climb on top of and leap to his bed...BAD IDEA!
Mommy worked waaaaay too hard on this for little grubby feet to be climbing on this puppy:o)
So anyway, that's that!

My New Bedding & a Sneak Peak

I got some new bedding...and I love it!
I feel like I have a completely different room:o)
I decided one day to stop by Pottery Barn to see what they had..not really expecting much in the sale department...and low and behold I found this duvet cover for $31...a steal, I know.
I needed to accessorize this new awesomely cheap bedding...
So I went into Mission-Pillow-Hunt at Stein Mart. They had one pillow sham that matched the duvet perfectly...but only one. Ahhh! Panic mode had set in. I called all of the surrounding Stein Marts including some in Tennessee. I only needed two more people!!  Apparently this is a popular pillow because all of the stores except for one (just outside of Nashville) were sold out...and that one had only two. Talk about
 luck! Thankfully my mother happened to be in the area the next day and was able to pick them up for me...such a sweet little momma:o) 
Aren't they pretty?

Did you happen to notice the ruffly pillow? Wanna know what it was BEFORE it was a pillow? A table runner! I found this table runner at T.J. Maxx for $12.99. They had a few colors to choose from, but this color suited my room the best.

 It just so happened that my shabby, well-slept-on king size pillow was the perfect size to slip inside.
 So I ripped the seams at one end.
 Slid the well-slept-on pillow inside, and stitched it back up.
 Fancy:o)
Are you loving it? I know I am:o) Next on the "to buy" list is a new bed skirt. I want a fru-fru bedskirt that is really full and girly:o)
 And this is a sneak peak "before shot" of the dresser I am working on for E. I have changed it up a bit and finished painting it today. I'm hoping to share the end results with you all either Thursday or Friday.
You won't believe what I paid for it...any guessers?

Recipe 3 ...

                                                                                                CLICK TO SEE MORE









                                                                                                 cup of joy ...
                                                                                                 or one row for me ... ;)


Tiramisu is one of my favorite treats for several years ... I got this recipe from my friend's aunt, and it's the most similar one to those from cake shops. It's really easy to make, and if you are a sugar addict like me, this will be your happy day! ;)
You will need :
- 4 eggs
- 6 tablespoons of sugar ( 4 for egg yolks and 2 for egg whites)
- whipped cream 250 ml
- mascarpone cheese 250 ml ( Zanetti is my favorite brand , i gotta admit that i didn't liked this one which i used)
- two packages of ladyfingers ( it depends of your vessel)
- coffee for soaking up the ladyfingers ( i prefer Nescafe)
- cocoa powder . 

Follow the instructions and after couple hours you will have your home made tiramisu! Enjoy!

Tiramisu je već nekoliko godina na listi mojih omiljenih poslastica a kao takav , morala sam mu naći i adekvatnu zamenu koja bi bila napravljena u kućnoj varijanti, nešto najpribližnije  zabajone kremu i pravom ukusu tiramisu-a. Recept sam dobila od drugaricine tetke i od taga ga vrlo rado  delim . :)
Potrebni sastojci:
- 4 jaja
- 6 supenih kašika šećera
- slatka pavlaka 250ml.
- maskarpone sir 250ml. ( najlepši ukus ima sir marke Zanotti, moram priznati da mi se ovaj sa slike nije dopao)
- dva pakovanja piškota ( u zavisnosti od posude)
- kafa ( najradije koristim Nescafe bez šećera)
- kakao .

Pratite uputstva sa fotografija i kroz dva do tri sata ćete imati svoj domaći tiramisu! :) Fil koji preostane najčešće iskoristim za dezert u čaši, koji služi da se premosti vreme dok se tiramisu ne stegne! ;)
Ukoliko budete imali pitanja vezanja za sam proces, vrlo rado ću vam odgovoriti  jer sada postoji mogućnost da se pojedinačno to učini za svaki napisani komentar pa je samim tim i preglednije! :)
Prijatno!
