Okay this ones for you LeAnnhttp://simplydandy.blogspot.com/~I wasn't going to post this picture because I didn't like the way it looks since it is still a work in progress, but I spoke with LeAnn and she wanted to see my new furniture and cushions so here it is! I bought my metal patio set at a yard sale for $10.00 and the other day I went to Home Depot and they had the cushions on sale for 1/2 off, they are chocolate brown/robins egg blue/cream strip, I loved the colors and the pillows were also on sale! I have just been lucky with my sales lately. You can see my lonely camper there in the background. I hope you all are having a good week! Hugs~Kelly

See my little pink sheer curtains, just wanted to let you know they are RA and on clearance at Target for $2.48 each. I bought 4 of them and I might go back and get some more just cause they are so cheap! LOL.
My next bargain is her lamps, clearanced for $19.99 ! Yep half price so I got 2 for the price of one! I think I skipped right out of the store!! I also wanted to show everyone that I took down my green curtains and put these up, I used to have these here before, also I hung plates on each of the curtain rod holders. It's hard to get a good pic when your taking it towards this huge window.

You guys are good! You guessed it, this is my new mantel top!! It is still a work in progress, we threw this together in a day so it isn't quite finished yet. I have two wooden posts to add to each side of the front and I'm still playing around with decorating it but I couldn't wait to show everyone, I'm not good with secrets and surprises!LOL. I am also picturing a beautiful sconce on either side of the fireplace . I have wanted one of these for so long, Jeff made it out of an old door, the pink is the original paint on the door (purchased in Round Top Texas) the little shelf on top was actually off of my childhood dresser, which had seen better days. Well what do you think, do you like it, I just keep walking threw my living room and stop and stare, I love it and Jeff made it for me so that makes it extra special (: I also wanted to show you a pillow cover I picked up the other day, It is a linen material with embroidered flowers on it ,, I thought it was so pretty. Well I hope everyone has a good start to their week and I'm sure I'll think of something else to post about soon!

I am so excited, I have wanted one of these for a long time, but they are to expensive for my budget so Jeff is making me one. Do you know what it is? It's not done yet but were working on it! I'll show you soon.......

Okay I had to add this picture of my little Abbey girl, she went and had her hair done today and they had this sweet dress and a matching leash and she couldn't leave without it!!(; It has a pink bow and pink pearls around the collar and lots of ruffles. She is posing for the camera, I think she knows how cute she looks! Julie even put a pink bow with a pearl in her hair to match her new dress!
Well last week I had aked for some suggestions from all of you about my living room, I was just bored with it and thought maybe someone could come up with a good idea that I had not thought of yet. Some of you suggested lace curtains and last night I went to Target and found the Rachel Ashwell lace curtains on SALE, they were $13.00 a panel, not to bad right, I was so excited and I got the last 4 of them and I had to go to 2 different stores to get them. I Love it, what do you think? I keep imagining my Christmas tree up, I can't wait. Thanks everyone for all your help and thanks again LeAnn for the rearranging idea, it is nice for a change!
I'm honored to recieve this award from my good friend Becky over at http://laceandlures.blogspot.com/ thank you so much for thinking of me!! I love Becky's blogs, she is a very sweet and talented lady and I look forward to meeting her soon! I am sorry but I can't decide who to pass this on to, I love all the blogs that I visit so this one is for everyone of you!

I know this post will probably bore some people who come here to see pretty decorating but I thought I would show you what my boys were up to. They are building a fire pit to sit around! Okay yes we are diffently rednecks! And might I add very proud of it. They found this gate on the back part of our property and the fence posts and built an entrance to their firepit. Too funny right. I guess I've rubbed off on them, it just is a little dirtier than my kind of decorating LOL. By the way Dylan said he isn't done with the fence yet he still has some designing to do to it ! Look at those jeans I have to wash.
The fence that you see in the background is a strawberry farm that has been there for ever and they just sold their property to our town, I am so sad to see it go! They had the best strawberries I have ever had!
The proud builders and their first fire in the fire pit. Maybe I will surprise them tomorrow while they are at school and pretty it up while they aren't home. I was thinking some twinkling lights and oooh I have a pink umbrella, do you think they would like that. Uhhh maybe not , it would probably all become firewood! Hugs~Kelly

Well for my first post, I had to show you a picture of my living room. Now what makes this special is that LeAnn from http://fortheloveofcottage.blogspot.com/ helped me come up with this new look via telephone and internet! That's right I actually heard my twins voice for the first time, we like to call each other twins because we both have so many of the same habits and taste. Anyway she thought I should try to angle the couch so you get a view of my fireplace that is to the left, my window and my t.v. I like it, it is nice for a change. I did just notice that I have my t.v. on in the picture, oops. Plus if I leave it like this til I start decorating for Christmas, then I have plenty of room for my tree in front of the window! I also wanted to thank everyone that left me comments about my blog, you know it is very frustrating and a bit scary and it makes you realize how important you all have become to me, it's like having lots and lots of friends out their and I wouldn't want to lose anyone of you! Please let me know if I forgot anyone on my list, I tried to remember everyone, but as you can see I had alot of my fav's.
