Trash to treasure?

Trash to treasure?

I love my cat, Pumpkin.  I really do.

Until she knocks one of my battery operated candles off a shelf that hangs 12 feet off the floor!  The candle sounded like it exploded when it landed….the cat flew, as well (but that’s a whole different story)!Continue reading

Kitchen cupboard dilemma!!

Kitchen cupboard dilemma!!

Yesterday, I got a whim to make a decorating change.

Not a small whim, mind you, like changing out pillows or  rearranging furniture.

No…..I decided to take off some of my kitchen cupboard doors!Continue reading

Do you decorate your “pit”?

Do you decorate your “pit”?

Living in South Texas, we only use our fireplace about 1 week out of the year (just kidding!!)! However, we do use it rather sparingly!!  I’d say all total days used equals about a month, so it basically just sits there for 11 months as an unused, ugly piece of prime real estate in my living room just waiting for a decor lift!  So, every year around this time, I clean out the lovely “pit”…Continue reading

Spring tweaking!!

Spring tweaking!!

I think we’re all ready for spring by now regardless of where you live!  The temperatures in South Texas have been warm and pleasant (which we will pay for come summer since we haven’t had a “hard” freeze…..bugs will be bad!!!). The nurseries have flowers out and the birds have returned!  I’m refraining from planting blooms just yet in hopes we may get one last cold night but I think it’s just wishful thinking…..

Anyhoo…Continue reading

Dining Room

Aw…..the dining room!  It’s a lovely room but it only gets used once, maybe twice, a year!   It just seems the space could be utilized in a better way. Can you relate??? Continue reading

As with any home, the kitchen is the heart of ours!  It’s seen and hosted many parties, family dinners, intimate affairs and healthy debates filled with a ton of LOVE!!! Continue reading

Living Room

Living Room

Our living room is the heart of the home, of course.  Although not quite entirely “open concept,” I am able to see what’s happening while in the kitchen!  It’s where the hubs and I hang out for the most part now that the kids are moved away from home.Continue reading

Master Bedroom Facelift

Master Bedroom Facelift

Our master bedroom underwent a “facelift” this past summer.  Now…..you all have to try to vision the old room……Pepto Bismol pink!!!  I kid you not!!!! That’s the color it was when we moved in and I tried to soften it by applying a white wash over the top.  Honestly, it was not bad then and we actually lived with it for 8 years (yes, my dear hubby is a SAINT!)

However, the time finally came for a change!Continue reading
