My Bedroom........

I know what your saying, she has already shown us her bedroom, but I changed my bedding and curtains and I thought I would share it with you all, since it is really the only thing that I have had time to do lately. Between going away last week and then I'm leaving again Sunday, I don't really want to start any new projects and I am trying to get things together for my family while I'm gone. I hope everyone is having a good week (;

Ooooh So Pretty!!

I love, love, love this house. It is in the Creative Home magazine for Winter 08. I think it is sooooo pretty and it makes me want to change everything, but I have been looking for a new look for my bunkhouse and this is it! I like everthing about it, the whites and creams and chocolate browns. She has used leathers with damask fabric and lots of old laces, so many different textures, chandeliers and her antique lamps have such pretty handmade shades on them. I know we have seen lots of this but this one just makes me happy so I have lots of painting to do!!LOL. I hope everyone is having a good week and I got back from Jeff's reunion on Sunday and have just been trying to catch up on things here.. I will be leaving again on Sunday for a visit to my Mom and Dad's house in NC, I can't wait to see the leaves changing, never seen it before so I'm looking forward to that. Hugs~Kelly

A Perfect Day With A Sweet Friend !

Have you ever met someone and felt like you have been friends forever? Well this is exactly how I felt meeting Becky for the first time. You go through all the doubts about whether you should actually meet because you have certain expectations about a person, just knowing them from their blog, but I have to say that she and her husband Dave were just as I imagined them to be and we had such a great day . She came to my house first and thank goodness she wasn't dissapointed, then we were off for some shopping and lunch. The day ended to soon for me and I was sad to see her a Dave drive off! It actually brought a tear to my eyes, I wish we lived closer so that we could do this all the time. Dave and Becky are the sweetest people and I enjoyed every minute of our special day together, thanks so much Becky!! She also brought me a bike basket for my bike that I will get very soon, especially now that I have a great basket to go on the front of it!!
Big hugs and thanks~Kelly
I also wanted to say that I am leaving today to go to my husbands 25th class reunion so I will be gone til Sunday, I sure will miss everyone and I will visit when I get home.

Finally Working On My Dining Room Chairs!

Oops, I put my pictures in backwards , oh well. I finally covered my chairs, I was worried about doing this because the seat cushions were not removable so I was afraid I would mess them up, but I think they turned out pretty good, I used pillow cases for the fabric. I still have to put trim around the edges but other than that they are done. WOOHOO! Please don't mind the skeleton in the background I have boys and they love him, I didn't realize I got him in the pic till right now. Enjoy your weekend!

Fall Garden

Hi everybody, this is where I intend on working this weekend if I can get myself motivated, gardening is not my thing I prefer indoor work! But I do have to say that my pumpkin garden is much easier to keep alive in the hot FL. sun than my flowers LOL. I hope everyone has a good weekend!!

Happy October!!

Happy October girls! I put my Happy Halloween banner up on my china cabinet this morning and added some of my pumpkins to the top of the cabinet, I even rearrange my holiday decorations, LOL. I think this basket of pumpkins has been all over my house already! Now if we could just have some cooler weather here in Florida, that would be nice (;
