Picture This

 Hello and Happy Monday,
I have been on a mad dash since the beginning of the year to de-clutter, organize and complete all my unfinished projects. I have to admit it's been quite a chore, but each day my to do list gets a wee bit smaller. I am in the process of hanging some much needed art work on my walls. So for the past several months hubby and I have been out and about taking pictures of whatever speaks to us. Since the budget is limited creating my own artwork will keep cost down. This is also a great way to have one of a kind art pieces in our home. Enjoy the pics!
 
 
This picture was taken at Historic Bok Tower Gardens, and I really like it, but I'm not quite sure where to hang it.
 
How bright bold and beautiful is this pic? I have just the place for it, in our living room.
  
Hmmmmmm!


 I named this pic Honey Bee and It's a keeper. A white picture frame will really make this picture POP!
 


 
I would love to be sitting on that bench, with a cup of coffee, and a good book. Who am I kidding? It's Monday and I have to go to work. ugh!!!


We didn't have to go far to take this pic. These tropical beauties grow right outside, around our Oak Tree. This picture was featured in the Red Hot Powder Room post. You can see it here
 

This is not a photograph at all. This is actually a piece  of fabric that I cut out and framed. pretty, pretty, pretty.
 
 
I've had this pic for quite sometime now, but I think it will look great in my laundry room. And maybe, just maybe, it will make doing laundry less of a chore!


And last but not least, Blue Tango. I love this picture. I am hoping to share it with you in the next week or so, in a room transformation. Well that's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
 
2 your home,
 
Lory

  1. This is such a good idea. My aunt has a bunch of artwork in her home of pictures that were taken with her camera. I also like the idea of framing fabric. Hope you have a great week.

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…
