Baby Shower Bliss

Today I am popping in with a few highlights of my Daughter's baby shower. Yep, I am going to be a Zsa Zsa again. Yay! We haven't received the professional pictures from the shower yet, so all of the pictures were taken with a cell phone.
Once my daughter decided on a theme Bumble Bees/Daisies we went to work. Several weeks of prep work was done to make the baby shower possible. But in the end it was worth it. Enjoy the pics! 

Lots and lots of prep work was done before the room got to this point. Let's see, we painted the terracotta pots, made all the paper flowers as well as the place mats, just to name a few. Did I mention we made all the paper flowers? If you look to the left of the picture you will see my little sweet heart and my good friend Mandy. My grandbaby was super excited, because she was going to be our little Hostess for the day.

This is how the room looked before we put our special touch on it. That's me in the black/white fedora. And yes the expectant Mommy is just above me. I think she is the cutest. And her Hubby is way in back.
At this point the tables and chairs were basically in the right place. Now it was time to DECORATE!!!!!!
So the next step was to add the tablecloth, chair covers, sashes and centerpieces.

  If you look closely you will see a baby bumble bee sleeping. Shh!!! How cute is that?

A single Bumble Bee was placed in each of the larger daisies as well. Can you see it?


Once everything was said and done, this is how the table/tables turned out.

My Daughter and her Hubby's table received a fresh floral arrangement. Instead of the black sashes we used black white and yellow tulle to add another element to the design. Daughter and her Hubby loved their table.

This is a close-up of their table. Isn't the table runner absolutely gorgeous!!!!



As a thank you each guest received an amazing gourmet candle apple from Tiffiney@Lé Château Doux. The apples were not only gorgeous, but they were oh so tasty too! Thanks Tiffiney!!!

I had a blast last month helping put this event together. But before I end this post I just wanted to share the cake with you. It was purchased from Sam's Club, and we added the daises, bumble bees, and the sleeping baby bee. And after all was said and done, that's exactly what we did. We went to SLEEP!!!!!

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…
