Fun Artwork-Boys Bathroom

This morning the remnants of Tropical Storm Hermine are coming through Oklahoma producing buckets of rainfall.  I was going to venture to the mall today and visit my favorite makeup counter, Mac, but felt too lazy and just stayed home.  Our small town floods sometimes in heavy rain and it becomes a pain to get back into town if you've been in the big city.  The flooding only happens at the crossroads of the two roads coming into town.  I know, I know, thank the wonderful city planners around here.  You would think that would have been corrected long ago but I guess not. 

I decided I wanted to put some artwork in the boys bathroom.  After spending days looking through blogs, I decided to just put up pictures of their most prized possession....their puppy dog, Allie.  I found three dollar store frames and painted them a cool blue color since their bathroom is blue and green.  I then remembered that I had bought some doggy scrapbook paper a while back.  Perfect! 

I took some chipboard letters and spelled out her name against a pretty green piece of paper. 

I framed two of their favorite pictures of Allie and glued them against the adorable doggy scrapbook paper.  They turned out so cute!  The boys were thrilled!!!  When they came in from school and I could hear them both say, "Awwww!"

The pic isn't centered above the towel rack-noticed it after I took the pic-ha!
Is that not the cutest puppy in the world?!
I'm also slowly but surely bringing out the Fall decorations.  Most of it is in the garage in totes.  At least my dining room looks a little more Fall like!

That wooden bowl was my first antique purchase in 1994-I love it!

I also brought an old wooden school chair from my Mom's house for a place to hold the boys backpacks and hoodies after school.  It's an old college chair from the University of Oklahoma.  I know that only from the little plaque on the back.  The boys love it because they are major OU football fans.

Please disregard the box in this photo-it's holding my future garage sale items.
I found a few blogs today that I simply have to check them out!

Love her Montessori-style crayon holders!
