I've missed my blogging buddies!!

Hi everyone, time sure flies when your having fun, LOL, I really had no intentions of abandoning my blog for so long, I think the longer you stay away the easier it gets and I just wasn't sure what to say! We had a great Christmas with family and friends. We, meaning Jeff, me and friends spent New Years in the Everglades at a camp out there only accessible by airboat, I don't have pic's because I forgot my darn camera, but lets just say it's ruffing it but in a good way, the cabin has a huge generator that runs electricity to the cabin so you have all the ammenities of home, kitchen, bathroom, shower etc. we had a blast, we were there for two nights, pretty amazing that in the middle of no where they have cabins and we also went back and forth by airboat to visit other friends in another cabin, it's like having a neighborhood in the middle of the FL Everglades. So now I want to show you my new banner made out of vintage hankies, so cute isnt it, I purchased after reading about it on Cindy's ~My Romantic Home blog, she showed a pic she took while at a flea market, the lady has an etsy shop so I hopped over there and bought myself one, I just love it!
Oh and I was so excited to here that Ikea had these slipcovers on clearance for $9.00 they were originally I believe it was $299.99, they only had the three seater couch covers left but I have the loveseat too, so it's a little big on the loveseat but it works!

I moved my dining rm back into my living rm area and I thought I would take a pic of my farm table in this area, I'm enjoying it in here for now!


Oh look who/what I found lurking on the shelves at Homegoods, Rachels new book, which I had not bought yet, I couldn't get my hands on this one fast enough, and I wanted to scream with excitement!!



Well thats all for now, it sure feels good to be back, I have missed my blogging buddies, I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to their New Year!!
Hugs~Kelly

Oh you are so lucky to get those sofa slipcovers on clearance at IKEA. I would love to have them. But I guess they have different things on clearance at the different stores. I was just at ours and didn't see them. Do you know? Can you get them online?

I'm so glad you're back!

We missed you too! Have you had a chance to read that book yet? I want that one and Pioneer Woman's cookbook, both are on my list. I like your dining room, so pretty. A friend that was here over New Years mentioned to me that my dining room would make a nice living room and vice versa. I have too much furniture to make it work but yours looks great!

Welcome back!

Judi said...

Hi Kelly
Happy New Year
It sounds like you were on a fabulous everglades vacation. Neat.

Your home is lovely. I love how you have decorated it and your hutch is beautiful.
Now I’m just curious whether you painted it like Cindy at Romantic Home did? I see your table is a creamy colour as well. If you did what colour did you use. I am contemplating doing the same at my place but I’m a little nervous about it.
I hope you’ll be blogging more actively again.
Come by and visit when you have a chance.
Judi

Miss Janice said...

I LOVE the slipcovers! I'm in the market for an IKEA slipcovered sofa for my den. Love yours.

Judi said...

Hi Kelly
I am loving the colour of your diningroom set. I'm curious whether you might have painted it. So many are and I am thinking of doing that to my set. The back of my chairs are like yours.

IF you did yours can you share with me the method you used to paint them and the colour? I don't want to choose a real stark white but a soft one. Yours looks very pretty.

HOpe you are doing well.
*hugs*
Judi

Judi said...

Hi Kelly
me again.
Thank you for getting back to me regarding the cottage white colour you used. Do you recall what kind of/make paint you used?
thanks again
Judi

Hi Kelly,
I am so happy you are back!. I missed you and your beautiful posts. Love your new room arrangement. How fun it must have been to go by airboat and camp in the everglades, I would have to have the cabin and the ammenities of home too. I would be looking out for gators, LOL.
Take care and enjoy your weekend,

HI Kelly!

It's been so long since I've stopped in for coffee :) I read all your posts but rarely have extra time to say hello, how bad! I am planning on carving out time for myself and away from my projects to visit more!
I love your table there , it's such a gorgeous look! and I always gasp when I see that hutch too! It would look perfect in my house too, so when you tire of it, just grab a U-Haul and come up here for a visit! :) Hope the winter is finding you healthy and happy sweetie! Miss ya!

Love, Cyn xoxo!

Hi Kelly,
Thanks so much for coming by today! I have a Q for you about the grey paint from Dreamy Whites....I went to get a sample at Home Depot & they said they didn't have the color anymore but they had the formula so they mixed it up for me & it was REALLY dark! ????? Weird huh? So, I'm curious how your experience went w/ it & where you got it etc....I want to paint my living room & dining room like hers or use the same grey I used in our bedroom.

Thanks!

Shellagh

Martha said...

I always love finding a much wanted book marked down -- it's almost like finding gold!

Ticking and Toile said...

Hi Kelly,
Thanks so much for stopping by today & for your sweet comment!! You could totally make the headboard yourself! It's not really that hard....you just need some plywood, a template & a jigsaw. It's a super easy saw to use! You can do it girl!! :)
