Pottery Barn Console Table

Yesterday I did a short post and at the end hinted at another change around my home. You all had some pretty good guesses. I wish I was super woman and had completed some of your guesses. Well, I'm good folks but not quite that good. lol
My birthday falls in September, September the 1st to be exact. This past year was the first birthday I spent 100% alone, it was not an easy day for me. Weeks prior I had seen this table at Pottery Barn and fell in love. In a weakened state of mind, I knew it was time to make some changes. I measured and remeasured the wall in my office to make sure it would fit and fit well, not crowding the area. The table I had been using I sold to help pay for this one. Sometimes you can move pieces here and there to make room, I knew the style of the other table was not one I wanted to continue using, so the best option was for it to be sold, it was a win win. This is one of the first changes I made in trying to make over my home.

Finding Color in a Gray Colored Day

Another week has flown by. Another week of clouds and rain. Thankfully I got a 3 hour window to get the yard mowed up. Like everyone we're a little saturated and ready for some sun in our neck of the woods. We don't have it as bad as others, but come on enough is enough already. I'm still continue to pray for those in Texas and Oklahoma effected by all the flooding that has devastated their lives.

A Little Update To the Front Porch

For a long weekend this past weekend flew by. I hope all of you had a wonderful time with friends and family. My heart and soul goes out to all of those effected by the flood waters in Texas and Oklahoma. I cannot imagine the devastation after seeing it on the news. Prayers are being sent out for all of them.
A while back it dawned me the chairs on the East side of the porch were in desperate need of some cushions. The blue and white pillows looked a tad bit on the lonely side.

Making A Room Over With Fabrics - And Some Help Please

I hope all of you have had a super weekend. We've had a weekend of rain and more rain. Everything is a soggy mess around here. The ferns are loving all the humidity, my hair not so much. I'm ready for some sunny skies.
Well..... I am at it again folks. Tackling another room, well getting ready to tackle the room. We established a long time ago I dance to the beat of a different drum.

Maybe A Little Rough, Thrift Treasures All the Same

You know how it is, you have a desire in your heart that's been there for a long time. I've had a desire for a buffet for the shop from the day I opened almost 17 years ago. As luck would have it yesterday the desire of my heart came true times two.

Master Bath Makeover Reveal

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day with your families.
The long awaited Master Bath Makeover is complete. It's been in the back of my mind for quite sometime to tackle the ceilings in our home. The whole process started in January. You can see where it began and the process I went through HERE. Wow - Wow - and Double WOW!  We've come a long way from those pictures. I've truly forgotten how chaotic it was.

Spring Flowers Around the House, and a HInt

There are just not enough hours in the day for me to even come close to accomplishing all that I want to get done. Do you have that problem? I sure hope I'm not floating in that boat all alone. We've had a touch of rain here and there. The flowers around the house have sure been enjoying a drink from Mother Nature. The clematis is a bit behind schedule blooming, regardless the blooms popping here and there are gorgeous.
