I love my daughter~

I have written blogs showcasing my grand-babies, my son and his girlfriend, even my husband (who really wants to be left out), my best friend and of course tons of decorating…..but somehow I haven’t said a lot about my daughter.  I probably haven’t done this because I honestly wouldn’t know where to start. She is a truly amazing person. She is my best friend, my confidant, my conscience, my everything. Not a day goes by that we don’t talk or at least text several times. We laugh, cry, gossip, shop, worship, decorate, problem-solve, cook, clean, re-model, re-evaluate and commiserate TOGETHER! She is the one that when I ask if my butt is too big for theses pants…she answers honestly. Is this hair cut too old lady? She will tell me. She is never hateful or harsh but I know she will be truthful.

We have so much fun together just meeting at our favorite stores or talking about our favorite subject….her babies! Could life be any sweeter?

She is the best mother, wife, sister, friend, and daughter in the world. She is honestly beautiful…beautiful physically but most of all beautiful inside.  Not a day goes by that I don’t thank the Lord for blessing me with her!! We have survived so much together.

Thank you Lord for my precious daughter. You are the very air I breathe!


A little Spring in my step….

The last few days I have been under the weather with some kind of bug. I actually went to the doctor and he frankly had no idea what I had other than just something that is going around. So today I am feeling a little better but (under orders from my hubby) should not over do it.  So I thought I would share my little “spring up” I did to my house last week during another unusual snow day in West Texas!

It really was beautiful...

I started with my antique bar and added gardening books and some green bottles and flowers.

Then moved to the coffee table and used gardening books again and an outdoor vase with white hydrangeas.

Added this vase (that my daughter really wanted but kindly let me buy) to my fireplace mantle.

A couple of bright pillows……a little nest…

Moved some things around and added a vase or two…

…added a burlap runner…

I think this pot should be cream or white…..so the sun is out…think I feel like painting a little.

What do you think? I can paint it brown again this fall….

Oh and I moved it to my kitchen island from my dining…should I distress? I couldn’t decide.

…and finally my new favorite thing.  My hubby gave me $$ for my birthday and I bought this great clock!

I love, love, love it but have honestly had a hard time finding a place to put it in my house.

So goodbye Blues Brothers..it was past time….

It is supposed to be in the 60’s for the rest of the week here so everyone especially my sweet little Mai…GET WELL!!!!

Feeling kinda blue…

The last few weeks have been cold, snowy, and rainy.

I have a major case of cabin fever!

Can I just say one thing? Snow, snow go away!!

I haven’t used much blue in my house in years and years

but I have a feeling I will soon.

At least a splash of blue here and there.

Here are a few blue rooms that make my heart go pitter patter!!

I love padded headboards and I actually know how to make them. Let me know if you ever need help.

I would love this in my guest room...hmmmm......
