I "m Ready

Welcome to our home for the hollidays.


The house is ready for the parties. I am having the family party, and two tea lunches,plus the girls from the shop are coming for brunch then we go shopping..


This is the table in the hall.

One of my hair customers gave me this Poinsettia.
I did the swag over the window that went with the chandy.
I did this little painting just for this space.
This is looking up from the first floor.

This use to be the garage until we turned it into a master bedroom. Now we don't have to go up those stairs several times a day.

Red and Green

#links


Thanks to Susian for hosting this party. Last year I had the pipe to burst and was in remodel mode for two and a half months. So, no Christmas in this house last year.
I wanted to at least get one room ready so we could enjoy it to the fullest.



The white metal church was a gift from a client several years ago.
The small snow village house I found at the thrift shop for $5.00
I found this cloche at a thrift shop for $4.99. The deer and flowers are from the dollar store. I had a candle holder I melted the wax and put the deer in till it got hard enough for him to stand. I just pored snow around and put flowers , then the glass on.
I just had to light a fire and get the full effect of the room. Now I have the rest of the house to do. I hope all of you have as much fun as I have had doing this room.

Hart of The Home, In Chocolate

Welcome to the party,our host is Shelia at Note Songs, and I know you have seen what a lovely kitchen she has.
On Dec.2 I came home to find a 9 ft. waterfall in my dining room. The water pipe up stairs had burst, and ran for 7 hours. It ended up being 40 thousand dollars damage to our home. Needless to say we had no Christmas last year. It took a little over two months to get our house back together. They gave me 24 hundred dollars to find cabinets. At first I thought I had made a mistake. Then I finished the mural, and decided to paint the rest of the kitchen in chocolate. I am happy at it came together in my chocolate kitchen.This is looking from the living room .You can see the kitchen to the left.




You may think the room is dark, but I don't have the under counter lights on, so you can see the mural better. I painted it and put a coat of polly acrylic on so you can wash it. I like to change things,so I didn't want tile. This way ,when I want to change the look,I just start painting.


We had the fridge to stop working, so off to Lewes and new fridge. We had a side by side and when I found this one I knew it was the one for me. I just love the freezer on the bottom.

I turned the overhead light off, so it wouldn't glare off the glass in the painting.
Thank you for stopping in to take a look at my chocolate kitchen. I left coffee and a sweet treat for you. This is the living room after the redo.

The After

This will be the second time this bathroom has been done in 6 months. The main redo was for the major water damage from a water pipe that left our home with 40 thousand dollars in damages. After everything was fixed we had a hot water to spray water under the floor, damaging my bathroom. The floor had to re removed including the sub floor. There are a few more things to finish,but I am so happy to have my bath back We have 2 1/2more baths but this was my favorite.
When we took out the vanity to redo the floor,I thought it would be a good time to change some things. The mirror was so old you could not use it to put makeup on with. Off to the thrift shops. I found this mirror for $18.00.
I had it ready to paint and grabbed a can and begun to spray. I had planed to paint it black,but I picked up the silver can by mistake. Then I thought HUM! After spraying I then took some black to enhance certain areas. I also replaced the white vessel with a clear one.
One day I was blog hopping and found a designer that had used a teapot with flowers in her bath. A friend gave me this little teapot. It had one foot gone, so I put a piece of cork on it ,now it would work perfectly for my room.
These keys are something I fell in love with in a shop.
I bought these boots 15 years ago in an antique shop. Yes ,I did try to put them on, I got about half my foot in the top part.. They must have had tiny feet.

Chocolate In The Kitchen !!!



Before the water damage I had white cabinets. I wanted something different and this is what I came up with. The cabinets are white frosted oak with a chocolate glaze. I had painted the mural behind the sink before the damage. My friend said she thought I should continue it on around the back splash.After I finished the back splash I knew I was headed in the right direction. When it came to the wall color, I wanted the cabinets to stand out so I went with a dark chocolate. All this chocolate talk makes me want to start baking.
Ok, back to this post, so I will tell you I am very happy with my new kitchen

Livingroom Done My Way



The dining room table is still being refinished, so keep that in mind when you see the dining room. The living room is just comfy enough for hubby and me. I had a fire in the fireplace twice this week.Now you decorators take it easy on me,I found some things at thrift shops and I found the pillows today at Big Lots. Lowes had the palm for $10.00 and Home Depot had the Tulips for $4.00.
We are still installing the kitchen faucet, and can't do the clean up of the kitchen till that is done.
