A Year In Review!

I'm doing my year in review a little different. It all started when I purchased my cottage on wheels. I bought this old and ugly 60's camper with a mission to make it into a little cottage, plus I needed something else to decorate! LOL. I replaced old walls with beadboard and painted the walls white, I painted the armoire robins egg blue, my Mom made me white denim slipcovers for the cushions and new curtains, we also installed laminate floors, it was a group effort from my family and it turned out to be such a fun project! I emailed a pic of my camper to Jenniferhttp://theoldpaintedcottage.blogspot.com/ and she loved it as much as me, it just so happened that she was going to be having her Summer Garden COTM in May 08 and to my surprise she thought my camper would be perfect for it. As we began talking she asked me if I had a blog , which I didn't and to be honest I didn't even know what they really were or that this whole other decorating world existed, so she gave me a few sites to look at and recommended I start my own! So without Jennifer I would have never found all of my wonderful blog friends, Thanks Jennifer! I have enjoyed you all so much and I want to wish all of you a happy new year! Make sure to scroll down through some of the pic's of my Cottage on Wheels and enjoy!! I love all of you and I am so glad to have found each and everyone of ya!! Please visit Cindy for her Year In Review Party http://romantichome.blogspot.com/!

This pic wasn't suppose to be on here! But I can't get it off, it was before I was done decorating!

desiree said...

What a great idea. In fact I think this might be the best idea of the year. You could use it as a get away, a home office or better yet a guest suite. Hmmm do I have room for one of these?

Maryjane - The Beehive Cottage said...

Sweet Kelly,

I can never, ever get enough of your DARLING vintage travel trailer! It's my all-time FAVORITE! I just might talk out all my PINK COWGIRL and make it shabby chic! You are such a dear and an inspiration to all! Looking forward to more fun in 2009 with ya!

Hugs,
Maryjane

Kelly,
I love your cottage on wheels. I want one also, but I've got way too many projects started. I plan on fixing my little shed up like this and calling it 'My Shabby Shed'. I can't wait to get started. You are such an inspiration to me. Thank you so much!

Hi Kelly,
I'm one of your regulars! I just love all of your pixs. I especially love your dining room. I love your oval mirror. I've been looking for one but don't know where I would put it.
About the mosaic, I finally had to save picture as...to my computer and upload it from there. Hope this helps.
It is amazing that Jennifer got you to blog, I started b/o Cindy!!
Isn't amazing what nice people you can meet through blogging!

Becky said...

Hello my friend,
Happy New Year! I have discovered a wonderful thing. An air card and I can travel and view all the year in reviews out there.
So I have enjoyed 5 hours of bliss blogging while in route.
Beats any magazine out there.
All you gals have created fabulous pictures of pretty things to look at. If I had done a year in review
I would have to do a year of review just writing about the friends I have met by blogging. It has been a great year in respect to that. You being one of my special friends. I have enjoyed seeing your face pop up often with your kind words of encouragement
and I hope to see you often in the new year!

Hugs
Becky

Hi Cheryl,
Thanks for the visit and my pink rockers are from Kmart, but I don't think they carry them anymore); IKEA has a selection of chairs and you can purchase pink slipcovers.

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…
