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....

Paint N Party and A Little TLC

It's Saturday afternoon and I should be washing and cleaning but it's just way TOO HOT! How's that for a plausible excuse? :) It's soon to be BACK TO SCHOOL time and my cohorts and I got together for a painting party last Monday night. What a fun group of people! That's me on the bottom row, second from the left. Don't you just ADORE my masterpiece? Bet you can pick the art teacher out from this group.... Hers was very Picasso-like and just beautiful. I'm going to hang my canvas in my office to remind me of the lazy days of summer. Doubleclick on the pics for a better view...
Here's a close-up shot. The purple paint was a little runny so I decided to kick things up a notch and add some detail.... Zinfandel brings out my creativity. LOL
Here's a shot (a lousy photo shot) of my new cased family room windows. Don't you just LOVE the way they look? I bought the wood with a primer coat on it and it hasn't been painted yet. I'm going to use the high gloss white that matches the rest of the trim. I'm a little undecided as to whether to leave them the way they are or put up a nice rod and some valances. Suggestions would be welcomed...... I had valances that I made from a Waverly fabric on them for years but grew tired of the navy, burgundy, and hunter green print and took them down. The room definitely looks larger and more open without them....
I NEED A NEW CAMERA!!! My DIL figured out when I got this one and told me that she's had THREE cameras in that time frame. LOL Cheap old me. Do you see my outdoor wicker chairs on my back porch? I've been watching the sales on outdoor wicker all summer and finally caught a good one, 30% off at Big Lots. Will post pics later once I find a cute table to go between them.....

Happy August!!!!!!
