Finally Got a Rack!

Isn’t it a beauty? Our friend gave it to me yesterday and I’ve been putting it here and there
to see where it looks the best!
He has so many of these that I didn’t feel bad begging him for one every time I thought about it,
he just didn’t understand why I wanted to decorate with antlers. LOL

I think he gave me a really nice one don’t you think?
This next picture is a little blurry, sorry but you can still see the size of it!

Well, I still haven’t got the Carbon paint but not their fault, I read where they are now selling it in
the stores so I figured great but didn’t figure on the weather, which has been terrible here for going
any where. I wanted to go to Home Depot tomorrow (Saturday) but we are expecting snow tomorrow
thur Sunday.

It is still right where it was when I posted my last post, I bought the herb/flowers
at Kohl’s and the Nate frame at Target!

I’ll be truthful when I first saw the antlers used in d├ęcor I wasn’t a big fan of them
but still wanted to try them out and I’m so glad I did because I think they go so well in all
the vignettes I did.

These beautiful roses are from my granddaughter’s Sydney and Samantha (Chloe) for
Valentine’s Day…notice the vase it’s a Ball jar only the word on the side of it says
Ja dor, neat huh?

My son and dil bought me a black storage bag for Christmas, right now I have old
wooden spoons in it but I have a lot of old wooden rolling pins downstairs that I’m
going to put in there too…sort of a farmhouse look!

Sweet hubs bought me these pretty flowers for Valentine’s Day too, it’s so nice to
have fresh flowers in the rooms, I’m lucky that they are lasting too!
Thanks for stopping by !
I’ll be at these parties!

Spring Yet?

This is how I am feeling lately…bored so bored that I’m taking pictures of myself, could
be worse I guess. Lol Chambry shirt Marshall’s!
February! 004
I thought I’d be done with this dresser by now but they sent me the wrong color
of chalkpaint, they sent me white(Everlasting) instead of black (Carbon), now I’m waiting for the black to be delivered.
I’m going to paint the inside o f the top two drawers black and buy two matching baskets
to use to hold movies and any other stuff! I’ll also be using the four drawers for runners and
tablecloths that I have in the bottom of my hutch which will give me more room for dishes in there!
February! 007
I know…my diningroom again but hey, remember I was bored.Smile
At least I took it from this angle with the afternoon sun streaming in!
February! 001
I’m keeping the white paint they sent by mistake, there are a few pieces of
furniture I want to repaint especially my white end tables one was my husband’s
mother’s and this one I found at Goodwill.
February! 005
February! 006
The basket I bought at Marshall’s finally got filled, I remembered today that I had
some faux red apples in my stash in the basement!
February! 003
Don’t they look real?
February! 002
I think they do:)
Can you see my new watermarks on my pictures? I tried different sizes and designs,
I still have to practice more but found it easy to do and not as hard as I thought!
So I’d  like to thank sweet Dawn @ Creative Cane Cabin for posting about how to
create a transparent watermark on Picmonkey! Thanks also for always sharing Dawn,
without you I would never try but your tutorials are always easy and doable!
I’ll be at these parties:
Happy Valentines Day♥

Snowy February

Hi everyone! Well, we woke up to more snow and the schools had a two hour delay!
Plus cold temps…someday it will be over and I can look out my window and see green.LOL
In the meantime I’ve been playing around the rooms in my home,  seeing what I like and
don’t like. In the livingroom I didn’t like the burlap and red lampshade that was on the
lamp so I had this lamp in my stash and decided to use it instead, the lamp that was there
originally is now in the guestroom and the snowball wreath is hanging in there, I’ll be so
happy when I put that away! Anyway, I think this lampshade goes with the black and white
I have going on in the room!

I finally decided to paint the bamboo mirror, my hubs spray-painted
it in the garage for me since it was so cold out, I used flat black, do
you think I should have used the enamel one?

Here is my mantel nothing spectacular but you can tell I do love the black
and white.

Well, that’s what I’ve been up to all week, this type of weather makes me
so sleepy how about you?

I’ll be joining these parties:

Moving Things Around

Hello all, to those on the east coast… are you tired of snow?

I know I am although we haven’t got it as bad as some.

I know a lot of you are preparing for the Super Bowl forgive

me for not being to excited, I’m a Steeler fan! But I do know

who I want to win and that’s the Seahawk’s!

Now on to more exciting things, I’ve been changing things

around and it sure has given the house and me a little bit

more energy to play!


january 002

In my livingroom after all the Christsmas stuff was

put away I switched from the red to black and white.

You can see my furry pillow there from Walmart! The

snowball wreath I found at Marshall’s and I left it out

because it sure goes now! I also bought a new lamp at

Target for there on the end table…I’ll show you soon!

january 009


Now my hutch had all my tureens on top, I think I have six, I

left the bread basket there and moved the tureens to my step

back cupboard!



january 008

I’m pretty sure I have a small tureen to put on top

of those books on the bottom shelf!


january 006

I always have to move this desk out so I can put our

tree in it’s place and I’ve been thinking of painting it



january 007


I changed the top of it too!

I hope your team wins but right now at half time they

are tied!
