Hello there my dears..
Hope you had a happy Monday..
One of my favorite days of the week as you all know..
So much potential available today..
With that in mind I took a couple of pics..
I made a list of to do things..
This room is at the top almost..
I need to once again reorganize my Sun/Craft room ..
I really need to do this so that I can start my Christmas gift list...
Just as soon as that is done I would like to get this finished by Christmas, too..
Here is another view of the room...
As you can see the style is not the one I prefer..
I LOVE country primitive..
Now this is a wee bit country and too much of the old style Victorian..
I love my antiques as they were mostly handed down to me from my great aunt and such..
So... it is not the furniture that I can change but I really would love a whole new look that is much more Country..
How can I do that on a very tight budget and not a lot of redoing...
I don't think Terry will let me change the floor although I would love wood..
He just has too much other stuff that needs done worse ...
This project is in my hands alone and anybody that I can
I think Terry might paint if I could get all of that wallpaper and
gross old fashioned border off..
I think I could do that..
I already hinted that perhaps we could get rid of the couch set but I guess that is not going to happen..
We will be changing to a smaller house sometime and this will do for us until then..
We seldom use this room as we have the family room on the other side of the wall ...
The wood wall there is British Columbia Cedar so we were told when we bought the place..
I would love to paint it a lovely creamy shade..
Brighten it up a bit..
I had him convinced to do that awhile ago but men sometimes change their minds..
Do you think that would be a good idea?
Then paint the other walls something not cream but not dark either..
New window dressings and what else do you think?
Shonda is a great help with this type of thing but she is more modern then I... She has good ideas, though...
I should call her.. smile..
I know my friend Tammy is reading this and we think a lot alike when it comes to decor but she can do whatever she likes..
Her husband has no opinion and lets her do her thing..
The thing about her situation is that she does the work..
I don't... He does..
So, he has an opinion....
I would love to hear your ideas..
Speaking of friends..
I had a lovely beginning to my week today..
I met with two of the best friends a girl could have..
Pam and Tammy...
We meet at what I call the halfway house for a lovely lunch..
Halfway between their homes and mine..
This is my friend Pam..
Isn't she a sweet looking thing?
Just like my sister in every way..
People even think we look alike..
And this is Tammy and I...
Do you think we are having fun?
We chatted and laughed and acted scandalous.. grin..
And ate far too much..
This is the dessert favored by us all..
Guess what it is?
Anyway, my friends I have so much to be thankful for..
I have some of the dearest friends there are...
I saw this and just had to add it..
Isn't that true?
And my friends always come through for me..
Jesus is my best friend and of course Terry but God has also provided me with some here on earth that mean the world to me..
You girls that I may never meet are some of the sweetest..
And even though some are older and some are you dear younger keepers out there I think that you are all so awesome...
Thank you for being my friend..
I hope you have time to leave me some of your ideas or just a note...
