A Designer's Tale on Hometalk

Happy Tuesday, I hope your Thanksgiving was blessed, and your Black Friday prosperous. A lot has been going on in my neck of the woods, and I have been a very busy little Bee. First up, a few weeks ago I took the plunge and started excepting interior decorating clients, and I am currently in the process of helping my new client create her dream home. I will post pics of the progress later. Later that week I was contacted by Liz a community manager at Hometalk, concerning a post I did last year.  "No More Clutter". Below are a few pics from the posts. No More Clutter is a 3 part post.

Any who, Liz really liked the post and wanted to know if I would curate a board on easy closet organizing tips, and I said "Yes". Below is a pic of the board.



That's it for now! Because I have a long list of things to do. I will be back next week with Christmas, Christmas, and more Christmas. Have a Great week.

Thanks for stopping by!

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…
