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....

Look Out, World!

She moved in on Saturday........ We loaded up her stuff and moved her in on one of the hottest days of the summer. Sorority rush began today and runs through the week. She's sorta on the fence about pledging.... says she will wait and see and pledge only if a sorority really impresses her.... The university that I felt was cold and impersonal when I started there way back in 1973 had this sign displayed on the outside of the dorm. My, how things seem to have changed.... Sorry, the pictures got loaded in reverse order. This shot was taken after MUCH furniture shuffling and seems to be the best use of the available space with lots of room underneath the bed for storage... The view out of the window is so serene and peaceful; it overlooks the lake and there were squirrels climbing in the trees.
Here's the "before" shot.......

Good luck, my sweet daughter! Don't forget lil old mom back at home...... I love you! ;-)


  1. Aww. What a big step for mom and daughter!


  2. What an exciting time and what a hard time (for Moms).
    I remember crying as we drove home (I have 3 adult daughters).

    YOUR life is getting ready to change and it is exciting!


  3. I remember when we were getting my daughter squared away in her dorm room. Brings back memeories. She graduated from college in 2006.

  4. You were moving your daughter into college and I was moving my son out! He just moved a couple miles away because he's now working for the University he just graduated from!

    I love all her black & white decor! So cute!!!

    Thanks for your nice comment you just left me!
