Look What I Found

Hello friends how goes your day ? Yesterday I was looking on Craigslist  and came across these awesome old signs and thought I would put them in my living room, I have to say I love the way they look, I might take the smaller one and reverse it and write Antiques on it better suited for the space. But for now I'm going to leave it the way it is Heck I drive a Ford so why not...

Have a great rest of the Day.....

I Just Had To Share

Got a call this morning for my friend Linda wanted me to come down and see what she found late Thursday afternoon , I waited a couple of day to take these pictures because I didn't want to disturber Mom and Dad, I can't believe how beautiful she made this nest... and her eggs are the most delicate color blue.. Just another sign that spring has sprung. 

Have a Wonderful Weekend.......

Signs Of Spring

Good morning, So as I was cleaning up the back yard yesterday I noticed that my lilac bushes are starting to bud, How excited I was to see the first glimmers of spring. The birds are singing and the grass is green, We do have a chance of a little snow at the end of the week, But it won't be bad (I hope) May all of you have a Beautiful Day say happy and smile it make you stay Young..

Today, I Have to get out side and clean up form the harsh winter we had here in the Midwest, It was so nice to see all of my neighbors outside yesterday, the grass is starting to green up and everything is starting to pop up out of the ground... What a joy that is to see.. So on that note... Have a beautiful day and stay happy.

New Lighting In the Entry And Hallway

Hi there, wanted to share with all of you my new lighting in the Entry and hallway, My wish was to have the ones in the Pottery Barn Catalog , But not going to happen  even with 40% off it was going to be over a hundred dollars each.... So as I was strolling through Lowe's I found these they look just like the ones from PB But only $32.00, I love the way they look..

Do you know how hard it is to take a Picture when your five foot tall?Not an easy thing... Have a good evening

The Green Is Gone And It's Time For Spring

Well, Tonight is the night for the big reveal...I'm finally done with painting and getting everything back together, I'm so pleased with the way it turned out, there are a couple of things that I still need to do like getting the curtains hung back up, and getting the carpets cleaned but all in all it's DONE..... And as we all say, Everything is an on going project  and that's the beauty of decorating !!! So with that said  I now ask you my blogging friends ...Should I put curtains back up or should I leave it the way it is for the summer ??? You make the call...... So Here it is...........


                                  And After.........

The Paint is PB Mascarpone
Side view of the living Room
I opted to take the doors off this cabinet 
Added numbers one day because I was bored 
Put one of the broken doors on the wall with an ironstone plate
Fire place mantel 
Vignette of my Mother and her brother and flower
And my poor little lemon tree that needs to go out side and yes it does produce lemons
View form foyer
credenza I found on Craigslist for $10.00
And finally I couldn't leave out my beautiful book.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and keep on DECORATING.......And Golly Gee didn't know you could click on my pictures and make them HUGE... don't look and the outlet covers because they didn't have enough at Lowe's ...... Talk about freaking out ......
