Lil Bit of This & That

Did ya miss me?? My comp has been giving me a fit!! So I''m back for today anyways. I wanted to show you my little cabinet I''ve been playing with on my back porch, I was visiting Heather Bullards blog and she had posted about a desk that she put on her porch for beverages, I had planned on doing the same with this but she got me inspired to finish it. I picked this desk up for nothing and I put some lemonade and fresh tea out for anyone who would like to come by and sit and chat, LOL. Oh and by the way I don''t know if I ever posted any pic''s of my table and chairs I bought at Goodwill but they came with the leopard print on the seats, I just spray painted them pink.
In one of the drawers I set one of my pretty bowls filled with sugar for your tea.......I had fun can ya tell.

Next I picked this pretty (uhoh I can't remember what it's called) tapestry?? I am not sure why I forget the name of things when I start typing, oh well, I loved the lavender background with the white roses.

I also found this clock with the same tapestry? I plan on changing the frame but I''m not sure yet what I will be putting it in but I pictured some type of antique frame, don''t ya think it will be pretty, I have never seen one made into a clock before! I bought both of these at Salvation Army.

Someone had requested a close up of my red polk a dot dishes that I posted about last time so here they are (; Have a great week and stay tuned for my surprise on May 1st, I''m sooooo excited I can hardly contain myself!

Just A Fluffin!!

I've been fluffin in the guest bedroom....................Remember this is what I call my Grandma rm, it has alot of my Nana's , my Mom's and Jeff's Mom's momento's in it and when my Mom comes to visit this is where she stays. You may notice the shutters are cream colored in the first pic and brown in the second pic, I changed them to the cream and like them much better.

I've been fluffin in the kitchen, notice my cute red & white polkadot dishes I found at homegoods!.........................

A Pretty Day!

Just thought I would pop in and say hello to everyone, it is beautiful weather here in Florida the last couple of days, so I have been busy getting my porch ready for Spring & Summer. I bought the most delicious smelling roses yesterday, when I walk out to my porch they smell sooooo good, I also added some of the birdhouses, Jeff made me stands for them out of my old porch posts. The sign I have hanging in the wreath on my front door says, Friendship is not a big thing it's a million little things, isn't that so true, thank you my friends , you all make my world a little brighter! I hope you all are enjoying your week and we'll talk soon!

Cute or Strange??

Okay ladies what do you think. I have seen this done before with the lamp shade forms and today I was in an antique store and saw one and thought I have that old lamp shade form at home I should try it and see how it looks, so I did, but I'm not sure if I like it or not?? I think it's kind of cute but second guessing myself, hmmmm is it just me that thinks it looks good or does it really look good?? Ya know what I mean, LOL! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend, I'll be watching my husband kill himself in a softball tournament this weekend, ya know the old bones and muscles don't bounce back like they used too!
