Welcome Fall



Hello again, before I get started I have to tell you about my weekend. Initially, I had planned to start my "welcome fall project." I had a list of things I wanted to tackle; like wash windows, pressure wash the sidewalk, and revamp some old wreaths. Now you know that didn't happen, right. Saturday I woke up to the sound of hissing water.We had a leak in the bathroom wall. ugh! Hubby turned the water off , but he couldn't fix the problem until late that evening. He had to work. So what did I do Saturday, absolutely nothing. Sunday was a no go as well, it rained all day long. So, what's a girl to do?... I turned lemons into lemonade and I tackled the projects I could do inside.


I really wanted new wreaths this fall, but you know me; I didn't want to spend any money. So I decided to re-purpose some old wreaths I had in the attic. Here's what I did. I removed all the floral stems from the wreath pictured above, to the wreath in the picture below. 


I really like this wreath but it's kinda sparse, so I beefed it up by adding the floral stems I removed from wreath 1 onto this wreath. Assembly was very simple, I placed the stems where I thought they would look best and adhered them with floral wire. Then I made the bow.



These are the florals that were removed from the wreath in pic 1. I had to retire the berries that were closest to the ribbon. (see above)
Can you guess why? LOL


Drum Roll Please!!!! Here is the finished product. Now I can scratch 1 thing off my Fall to do list. Happy Fall Yall!!!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
