Decorate With Metal

Hey guys! 
Did you see the awesome awesome news?! I was featured! 
My very first time and I am overjoyed with it! This week would be my grandpa's birthday, he would have been 91. 

This is a picture of him obviously on his 88th birthday. I made that cake for him :o) He lived in Holland for his earlier years, married my grandma, had one daughter and came here to America on a boat and they together had 4 more children, 3 girls and 1 boy. He was very big into his church, therefore, the round cake closest to the bottom left has a windmill and cross on it. The one above has a tractor since he had a garden and loved it! Then next one had fish with a pond and a fishing pole, that man sure loved to fish!! And the one below that had a dairy cow since they had their own dairy farm for many many years. I just love that man!
Happy Birthday Grandpa! I know you are happy in your new home!

Now on to what I wanted to tell you about :o) 

When I became pregnant and we found out we were having a little girl, immediately I looked for bedding.
Baby C's bedding is bright pink, light pink, and green with hints of a white cream in it. 
I love to have family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation. 

So we used my old dresser. I didn't take before pictures, but it was blue and purple? I don't know why.

Here it is now: 

Light pink with green drawers and white knobs. But there was a gap in between the drawers and knobs.
My mom told me that she had found an idea to paint washers.
And lookee there -- it worked! 

Have a great day everyone!
