Copy Cat Challenge

Hello everyone, So I thought sense I had some extra time I would join in the fun over at Debbie's for her Magazine Copy Cat Challenge. I had made this Bundt Cake earlier this year for our block party and it turned out fabulous... It was so good I had to make it again. Only problem is it turned out better the first time around(looks that its) I should have taken the picture then. So anyway I got up this morning and made it let it cool and took it outside and took some photos... Hope you like.....Here is the cover of Southern Living (September Issue)

And here is my take on the cover shot....

Or this one....

Hope you are having a great weekend.....

Happy Tuesday, Over the weekend I worked on putting everything away for winter...Sad but a necessity if you live where the winters can be unpredictable . Cut down lots of things in the garden, put all the patio furniture away, washed out the fountains and put them to rest, Raked up leaves (ten bags) and still have more to do.. Took down the curtains and gazebo top washed them and put away, Also put up the number sign I got form Ramsign (love it) I think it looks great. You can see the back yard HERE If you missed it this summer.

Have a great day.... Now after I get done with work I need to caulk a round the garage and windows.  GOT ADVIL????

Good Wednesday morning, I just couldn't wait to share the deal of the day.. I took Tia to work this morning set her all up and went to look around goodwill, And your not going to believe what I found... Are you ready?

Why in the world would someone get rid of this Ethan Allen Desk?
This thing is solid, And now it's mine for the bargain price of $22.00,
I need a desk so bad.... Not sure how I'm going to transformer it or where it's new home will be, But you guys will be the first to know.

In The Mail

Got home yesterday and had a surprise in the mail, About a month ago I had a giveaway from Ramsign and I said yes. So I had emailed them and said I would love to have one. The company was gracious enough to send me my very own. And just let me tell you that this porcelain number sign is just Beautiful... If you ever want to order one do so you will NOT be disappointed. I can't wait to put it on my home....

Hope you all have a wonderful Day (rainy here) But great weather to start a fire in the fireplace.....

As Good As It Gets for Now

So it's Saturday and I'm a week late getting pictures up of the garage  seems like when I finally see the end of a project something always stops me cold in my tracks, There are so many thinks that I wanted to get done out here But I'm happy that it's painted and got most of my patio furniture put up for the winter... Got an easement to Epoxy the floor and well that's not going to be in the budget, So I think in the spring I will buy the kit at Lowe's and do it myself...  

 My sweet neighbors Carla and David came over to help me, Thank you so much.... 

Look what I found a Home Goods the same ones that are in the Ballard Design Catalog... Score....

  Love the shelving unit from Ikea But I'm still shooting for a Shed in the spring time.....

Painted the inside of the garage door too....

And the patio furniture is put away for the winter....

I know it's just a garage but I'm so happy to get it done and over with. Everyone have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Before The Cold Weather Hits

Hello, Hope everyone is having a good week. I have wanted to tackle this project for three years now " THE GARAGE" just to let you all know its the one room that has never gotten any attention in the seventeen years that I have lived in the house. Every time we have block parties and cookouts We set up the food and I put out a long table and chairs in my garage I have always cleaned the floors and made sure that everything was cleaned up so it doesn't spoil any ones appetite .... But still was so embarrassed that it just looked gross... So let me show you what I am working with.

And a sneak peek of the new color.... I estimate that I will be done with and ready for the big reveal by this weekend... So I'm grabbing a cup of coffee and headed out to the garage. Have a great day.
