Sooooo did you miss me. Bet you thought I wasn't going to post tonight either did you - well the hot tub was calling first and it felt so wonderful I didn't want to get out lol. Note to self - work first, then relaxation. Sorry for not posting for a couple of days - but I don't think every day is going to happen - so let's go with every other day - that works for Karen so much better and Mother Tother says she loves reading it - so I need to keep doing it for her :) . Soooo lets see, Sunday was a jammie day and it was wonderful. I just did putzy things around the house and some stitching in the chair with Ms. Cami all snuggled in next to me. Great way to spend the day I tell ya. Last night was a get together at one of the peeps house for a little stitching and dessert. Ms. Carolyn's house I've showed you a few times. If you remember last fall I took some pics of her house decorated for fall and a shell of the new addition being built.
you can see behind the make shift pink wall there's a room starting to take shape
her kitchen with the blue check wallpaper that I just loved - also under construction
has been transformed to a beautiful dining room - it's just wonderful. Above those pieces on either side of the big window will go black shelves
See that cool piece leaning up against the table - that's mine and her sweet hubby made it for me - in the open spot is where monthly wool pictures will go - so cool and it was a surprise when she told me he had made me one. Something we both saw at a fun store we both like in a faraway town and he whipped us up one just like it.
An antique cupboard that belonged to her Grandma is going on the wall where the quilt is
The picture is a jigsaw puzzle that's been glued together - and her hubs made the frame
We both love Rowe Pottery
her kitchen has transformed as well
an island is going where the table is now - gone is the blue checked wallpaper - but it's such a pretty paint color it's ok lol. It's been fun to see it come together and will be even more adorable as she adds her touches to both rooms. As long as I had the camera I took a couple of pics around the house of her snowman - she and I both have a love of Willie Ray statues. Oops I forgot to take pics of her other ones - but trust me she has a nice growing collection like I do.
see that lighted wreath on the outside of the window
when we pulled up to the front of the house it was aglow with garlands and white lights - wreaths with white lights on the garage as well and a tiny little lighted tree up high in a barn window - it was so pretty and even more so because it was lightly snowing - just gorgeous. Ok lets get back to seeing a few snippets around the house
Even the bathroom has a little touch of winter - always like to see what she does with this cabinet - it's always fun.
This spot above the closet is always so cute with every season and her and I both love that quote - it's my favorite and I did not know it was her's as well - surprise surprise lol. We have a lot in common don't ya think.
Well that's it for tonight - fun evening with the peeps last night - always lots of laughs and a great dessert as well. They are a blessing in my life and spending time with them is always my "joy" as well. Thanks Carolyn for sharing your house and letting me take pics. Dang I wish I had taken a pic when we drove up - that was so pretty and magical.
I will see you back here on Thursday - yup not Wednesday but Thursday.
