A Winter Wonderland

Hello and happy Monday. I know that this week is going to be a very busy week for most of us, because Thanksgiving is just a few days away. And Friday will quick off  the Christmas season and boy am I excited!.....
Today I have a transformation that I think you are going to love.
 
 
 
 
 
This is a picture of my office and I can describe it in to words HOT MESS, but take a look at how I transformed it (office) into a Winter Wonderland. ENJOY!
 
 
 
 
The first thing I did was wrapped the door. I enjoy doing this because it's quick and oh so simple.
 
 
 
 
Next, I brought in lots of gold and white fabric and bows. The wreath is several floral sprays that were formed into a circle. The bow was added to cover where the sprays were connected. I love how it turned out.
 
 
 
 
 
I found this gold and white fabric at Walmart several years ago it is one of my favorite fabrics to use during the Holiday Season.
 

 
 
Can you believe that this cute little angel ornament came form the Dollar Tree? I purchased several of them to be used on and around the Christmas Tree. Enjoy the pics!

  1. Good afternoon Mrs. Lory! It seems that i'm having a problem trying to get the ribbon to stay in place on my front door. Should I be using something other than tape?

    1. Hi Jewel, To keep the ribbon in place staple the pieces together behind the door. This should keep the ribbon in place. If you are using a heavy ornamnent you may have to use floral wire to stabilize the ornament. I hope this helps.

  2. The christmas tree with the baby angels is so precious! Where is a good place for me to look and begin my angel collection?

  3. Look every where, flea markets, garage sales and don't forget the after christmas sales these are all great ways to start collecting especially if you're on a tight budget.

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!


Chat soon...

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…
