VINYL DAISY GIVEAWAY ENDS TODAY!!! Review Part 2 of Aimee's Adventures in Home Decor #2

 
Vinyl decals add instant flavor to a room.  I must say I have always wondered how these work.  I found them quite intriguing how the picture appears so flawlessly on a wall.  Vinyl Daisy has decals for laptops, cars, and do special orders that are personalized for your needs.  For example, your company name, child's sports team or dance team, you name it! I was lucky to be able to try out "Birds Will Fly," a wall decal by Vinyl Daisy.  This is the cutest decal! And as you can see, it is ADORABLE for a little girls room!


When putting up a decal you must follow the directions.  I did to the "T".  I even watched a random tutorial online which did help.  At first I was a little intimidated to put up my decal, afraid of failure, but my friends, if I can do it, by myself, so can you! I had some tricky parts when putting up the decal.  The trick is to be patient and work with the stick they provide you with (or a credit card) to smooth out the decal.  Decals can be removed but not reused, so give yourself some time.


Sherri from Vinyl Daisy suggested taping the decal to the wall first with painters tape to make sure the placement was accurate. It was a wonderful suggestion because I did end up moving the decal over slightly before application.


Vinyl Daisy was super quick at getting my order out and have been a pleasure to work with. I was unfortunately sent the wrong color on the decal for the birds, but Vinyl Daisy said it was a first. I believe it.  They seem generally quite accurate and care about the highest quality possible.  And I must say their product is a great one! I do LOVE this decal and must say I think these are beautiful! What a quick way to liven up an empty space!

WIN a $25 gift code from Vinyl Daisy!!! GIVEAWAY ENDS TODAY at midnight.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
