Shabby is Better!

I am overjoyed

with the outcome

of this chair and slipcover!

Wait till you see it!


Make it Useful!

It's sad when you're unwanted!

To be tossed in the trash like your nothing.

Of no use.

To no one!


Extending the Fireplace!

I wanted to figure out a cheap way to extend my fireplace...

To make it look like it extends all the way from the ceiling to the floor.

To do this was easy...

Even though I had to correct a mistake that I made!


A Tufted Beauty!

Meet the new stool in my life!

This one is full of charm, like most of them are, however, this one is tufted and oh so soft.

I first met this gal at a summer garage sale. She spoke to me when I passed her, but I paid little attention. I was on the hunt for something else.

Then, I looked down and saw her...


Chandelier Love

Do you have endless love for chandelier's that I have?

I adore so many different styles of chandy's that I just had to make a change!

The first vintage chandelier that I ever purchased was from ebay. I eventually talked my hubby into letting me take down the ceiling fan in the living room and replace it with this lovely old piece...


The REST of Winter decor

I have a lot of decor. That's what I love, that's what I do. After writing many posts on winter decor around the house, I have been left with even more lovelies to show you...
 Grab a cup of joe and relax...


Winter Door Decor!

One of my favorite things to do as my decor constantly changes, is to get out some of my decor that just seems to touch my heart.


Easy Monogram Shades

It is always a Great Thrill when I walk into a store and unexpectedly find a clearance sale that is too good to pass up.

As I was shopping Lowe's this past summer, I ran across a clearance table loaded with red and black chandelier shades and several colors of chandelier chain socks.
