About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Metamorphosis Monday Twice Over

I know it's Sunday but I'm always running behind so I vowed to be the first one on this week's Metamorphosis Monday.............

My friend Kim and I and my daughter-in-law had a big garage sale yesterday. Somehow we always manage to trade goodies and I brought home an empty shadow box and a gold roman shade curtain............ I had a lace curtain on my front door that needed updating and when I saw the gold curtain, I thought it might do. I caught a sale at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago and picked up some beautiful red and gold fringe......... Hmmmmmmm..... tell me what you think.... My friend Kim suggested the graduation collage in the shadow box. It still needs push pins and the bottom brackets on my front door need to come down.....


  1. I think the gold roman shade looks great! I love shadow boxes. They can be used for so many special things.


  2. Hi Terri!
