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....

Master Suite Upgrade

It's done! Carpet installed and new fan hung and my poor cat doesn't know what to do. She hates the new carpet smell and didn't like the looks of the installers or the sound of their Spanish music one bit, disappeared while they were here and I couldn't find her ANYWHERE! I kept calling her and heard a THUMP in the kitchen. She had jumped onto the countertop and then up onto the top of the frig and then above my cabinets just to chill and have some quiet time. Bless her little heart. I picked a neutral carpet color that should go with about any color scheme and upgraded the pad to a better grade to make it cushy...... It's lighter than I pictured it would be but with my kids grown, it shouldn't be a problem. Just have to keep the grandgirls out of here with drinks. The fan was a cheapo white one with shiny brass trim and it made a clickety clickety sound that drove my kids CRAZY. So I upgraded to this antiquey looking one.... Is antiquey a word??? The one in the showroom had low watt bulbs in it and I liked the ambiance so I'm gonna change them out as the recessed lights provide plenty enough light when needed.
Here's another view. See the lamps? I bought the one on the left from Kirkland's several years ago. Stopped off at a garage sale yesterday and saw its mate and just had to reunite them.... I really need larger lamps but these wil do for the meantime, don't you think?

Just don't like the look of the white wicker rocker and am thinking of spray painting it. Any suggestions for color? It's funny how whenever you buy something new, stuff that looked just fine suddenly looks old and tired.... Here's one last view of my beautiful new carpet. Stainless steel side by side refrigerator is on its way so stay posted......


Happy decorating, everyone!!!!

  1. I love it all. Can't believe you found the matching lamp perfect. Fan updates make all the difference. I have two left to replace or paint with bronzer. Carpet for our bedroom is at the top of our list. When we moved in we replaced everything but our room. Said we do it the next year.... eight years later. Life....
