Bringing Old Things to Life

Isn't it funny how we go through time and things change with our visions and tastes? Distressing new things to make them old and then bringing old things back to life? I painted this mantle I purchased from #PotteryBarn. I added some pieces I picked up at an antique store as well as incorporated items from my favorite places to shop. #homegoods

Added a little greenery and a couple of old frames and I love how this #antique look came together.

Here is the before paint photo.

No Bake Energy Balls

No Bake Energy Balls

My husband was recently given some scary news from the doctor about his triglycerides. He was advised they are way out of range on the high side. So, he and  I are trying to get healthy and eat better. I have been doing a lot of research on what is good for your body and what's not. I found this recipe online and to my surprise they are really good. My husband and I love to eat them as a snack. These balls are filling and make a great snack to take to the office. Mix all the following together and then refrigerate. Delish! 

Peanut Butter
Ground Flax Seed
Chocolate Chips
Coconut Flakes

I don't really measure. I just throw it all together and add more honey and peanut butter until I get desired consistency.
