Day: 10 & 11
Childhood Memory and Something Blue

I have decided to do yesterday and today, in one day. Yesterday was Childhood Memory. The picture with the Raggedy Ann and Andy blanket is one of the earliest memories that I have. My family and I would visit my grandmother and grandfather very often when they lived in Mississippi. We would sleep over at their house sometimes and I would sleep with this blanket every time we stayed . When I was around 6 or 7 my grandmother decided to just let me have it because I loved it so much; it reminded me of them because of the way it smelled. To this very day it still lays on my bed and goes on every vacation. It is very worn now and I have been trying to find a replacement so I can bring it to the menders but I can’t find one to take its place. Most parents hand things down to their children from their childhood but this is one thing I could never part with.
The last two photos are something blue. One is a fuzzy lamp and the other is a notebook. I love the lamp because it is the right size for my flower crowns. Some nights I can’t sleep so writing helps. The notebook is so cute!
Happy Sleeps! XX Corinne

Day: 6
Today is Obsession for my Daily Photo Diary. Yesterday was Easter and I decided to take a break(I actually didn’t know what to do for yesterday’s picture which was night, oops). My biggest obsession is dream catchers. I love to hang them everywhere! I have very little Native American in me but I just love the idea behind them. Your bad dreams are caught in the middle. Do they work? I’m not to sure. I’d like to think they work but either way they are just adorable. ☁️

My Aunt gave me these cross-stitch native american pictures my Great-Aunt did.

Of course I have Audrey Hepburn on my wall from her movie Breakfast At Tiffany's. Breakfast At Tiffany's is one of my all time favorite movies.

I love looking at how other bloggers decorate their rooms. I only had enough time to do a part of my room and I chose my favorite part. The part of my room is next to my bed and desk and boy is it a hodgepodge of things. My favorite thing on the world is the silver framed “Come On Skinny Love Just Last The Year”. It is a lyric from the song “Skinny Love”, Birdy’s verion of the song. The two elephant decorations are presents from Max, my boyfriend. The multi hanging elephants are suppose to keep away evil spirits. The green dreamcatcher is one that I made personally. I can’t forget to mention my bed lights. In my heart it is still Christmas. Who loves my purple lights?! The pink peonies lights have been in my room forever. They are perfect at night when you don’t want bright lights on.

I have the smallest percentage of Native American in me but I still love the cross stitch. They don’t really match anything but that is one of my favorite thing about it. Audrey is my favorite actress of all time. Her beauty is timeless and elegant. Breakfast At Tiffany’s is a classic. That movie sums up life very well. I encourage everyone to watch it at least once in their lifetime. For Christmas I got a new Vera Bradley comforter. I didn’t picture it in this post but I plan to in my next Room Decoration post.

I hope y’all like this short post about my bedroom decorations! See you soon. XX Corinne

Cherry tomatoes

Shred the cheese and cut the tomatoes next. I like to take the seeds and liquids out of the tomatoes so the eggs aren't to watery.

Next you mix the cheese, tomatoes, and egg(s) together. I use a fork to mix them for easy clean-up later. You can put the spices of your preference in now.

I like to get my bread ready next just so it is fast and simple to put my eggs on the bread straight after.

Turn the burner on to medium so you do not burn the eggs.

I came up with this little sandwich yesterday when I need something to eat before work but didn’t want cereal and felt I needed to share it! I love experimenting in the kitchen and I think this is a winner!
I love this recipe when I do not have somewhere to be right after I get up in the morning! This is a good breakfast when you need something to fill you up but don’t want something greasy like McDonald’s. It is very simple to make and also healthy. The most time this probably takes to make is about 10 minutes. There is no oil or grease added and it is very cool to make. I named it Brown Bird Sandwich because of the brown bread used and the eggs.
I hope you try this recipe and tell me what you think!

What I’m Up To

Hey guys! I have been so busy in the past few days getting ready for finals coming up in the next week. A couple of days ago I ordered a poster from Etsy with the lyrics of Birdy’s song “Skinny Love”. I absolutely love this song! Oscar Daniel Dubstep Remix is probably the best remix I have heard in a long time. The poster sits right next to my bed and it looks so good!
The elephant is a Roget I worked on in art class last week, called a Batik. You draw a design on cotton fabric then you outline the design in wax. Dye is then used to color the design. Most designs I have found are natural scenes. I had a lot of fun making this project.
I love writing in my diary because it’s not really a diary. I can paint water colors, create collages, sketch drawing, write my feelings, anything. I’m not good at writing daily paragraph after paragraph. I would rather draw my thoughts. I encourage everyone of finding a way of getting thoughts out. My brain runs and runs and runs and putting my thoughts on paper helps me to sleep and get them out.
Who out there has a diary?

Home Away From Home

All us girls do it. We go onto Pinterest to create our own world that we fantasies about having. I have here a few examples of “Homes away from home”. These are pictures of rooms that are in my fantasy house. I like simple but colorful rooms. PB Teen rooms just don’t cut it. Rooms are meant to look lived in. I believe in clean and organized mess. These rooms could be lived in easily. I hope you like these rooms because I certainly do! They look artsy and colorful. Most teen rooms are filled with posters, dirty clothes, and shoes but these rooms have a sense of maturity.
The hallway is absolutely stunning! It would be beautiful in a beach home!
What does your dream house look like?
