My brother and sister-in-law are gone and now I’m starting to get busy to get myself and the kids ready for our trip to Germany. It is a fun trip and we are really looking forward to it but it’s not a relaxing time. It’s actually a very stressful time and I know I will be ready for vacation when we return. After being in someone else’s home (in this case my parents) for almost 5 weeks and never getting a minute to myself, yup the kids sleep in a room with me, I’m ready for a week all alone. The most stressful part is visiting friends and family nonstop and talking, talking, talking…. Sorry Dad! Don’t tell me to stay home again if I don’t like it 😉 ok? Because I do cherish the time with my parents and kids. I love snuggling with them every night and I know that I will look back at this time when they are all grown up. It’s a very special time. I do love it and am very lucky that I get to do it!
Anyways my friends here is what I was talking about in the post title:
I did a little update on a box that I had standing around in our basement, it houses our incense but I was getting very tired of it’s look, which I had for almost 13 years. I used to have a diamond pattern obsession (Do you remember my powder room walls? Click HERE to see them.)
All I did was paint it with some Kilz primer, sprayed the body mint and the bottom and lid got Rub ‘n Buffed.
It’s a tiny little makeover but I love how it looks on my coffee table that also got a little update.

This post makes me happy and that’s how it should be, right? I hope you like it too.
Talk to you guys on Monday and have a fabulous summer weekend. I put myself on a healthy diet because we overdid it at the beach. Major gluttony, not even to mention the happy hours! What happens in Avalon stays in Avalon….I’m only kidding…it didn’t go that far. Anyways, water, fruits, veggies and organic chicken it is for me until we are in Germany. But I will eat whatever I want when I’m home 😉 Döner, Pfifferlinge und Semmelknödel, Prasselkuchen, Mohnkuchen here I come…
