I have a bad habit. I look at things and think to myself, "It could use a little pimping." Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Many times, I end up removing the bling, because it is just a little too much, and simpler is always better. Well, when I got my new camera and camera bag, it was a little too utilitarian for me.

Rather "plain jane" don't you think. I wanted it to be pretty, because really... everything should be pretty right? So I found some "pretty" fabric online, and decided to do this...

While I was doing that, I decided I needed to make myself something for my not so attractive neck strap. So I did this...

Now my things look "pretty". Much better than it used to be.

Now on to show you more of my baby sister's fabulous thrifting finds... As I said, and some of you agreed... she is quickly becoming the "queen" of thrifting. I agree. The girl seriously amazes me sometimes. For example...look at these amazing mirrors in her house.

Can you believe that they only cost her $15 a piece? They are fantabulous!! Darn I wish I had gone with her to that thrift store on that day.

And finally another one of her redos. This is the powder bath just off of the kitchen area. It was pretty yucky before. Totally date, and I swear the people that had this house before my sister must of had a serious love affair with the 80's. Emerald green and pink everywhere.. yes pink walls.

So here is the after. New sink, new floors (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my sister's floors), new paint (thank goodness), and quick mistreatment on the window, some fun little decorations, and a brand new bathroom.

HUGE improvement!! Good job sister!

Okay, I'm off to clean my house... FUN, FUN! NOT!!!

Have a great day!
