Much Needed Stressfree Day!

 The last week and a half has been spent moving from one home to another. So much work, so very exhausting. We decided to take a day and be stress free. However that presented a problem as I couldn't find anything. So that meant shopping I went. I hit a little consignment store and found an outfit for under $20.00 Such a rough life lol! Having gone from sweats and hair on my head for what seemed like days, it felt good to feel like me again.
 We went to a local wine and seafood event. The weather was amazing for this time of year. The sun was shining and there was an outside band. We had a lot of fun. Pictured above is my twin of course.
 My sis and sister in law/friend Starla.
 My son and I enjoying the view and sunset.

I must say it was a great day and much needed. Tonight I just finalized my old home and can now start a new chapter in my new home. Hopefully I can focus and finding my clothes and blow dryer. Also focus on my granddaughters 6th Birthday on Friday. She is super excited. Blessings Pam

Shabby and Rustic!

 This mantle I had behind my bed at the other house. Not sure where it is going to go but I  just cant part with it!
 This is another piece that I just love. I have to get coasters for the wheels yet and than I can start adding my pieces to it. My last home was all white and I did mostly vintage and shabby. However this home has a lot of rustic features and dark wood for trim. So kinda thinking of going more rustic. Still have to throw some shabby in somewhere.
 I traded a shabby door for this metal stand pictured above. I am not sure what I am doing with it yet. Thinking of spraying it black but not sure. I love the scallop edges.
 We have two bathrooms. One upstairs and one downstairs. I happen to like the downstairs one better. Lots of upgrades to it. The upstairs has wallpaper that must come down soon.
 This is my collect corner of stuff I am not sure where its going yet.

 This is the small kitchen. While I wasn't impressed with it. I must say its growing on me. This is where I can see some rustic coming in. The shutters are right up my alley. Our granddaughter likes to close them and say Kitchen Closed.

 Not sure of the wood wall but kinda seems like a cabin feel. For now it stays.
I love the back yard and the privacy. I have two sheds and they are full with lots of stuff for a spring sale. I cant wait to dig through it. For now I am unloading one box at a time and taking my time. Happy Friday. Blessings Pam

Our New Home!

 We received our keys last evening for our new home. So grateful and blessed. As we get settled I cant wait to share more pictures. Right now I am overwhelmed with packing and moving. My mind is spinning with all the things I want to do with it.

Our granddaughter stopped by last night to check out the new place and was so super excited. She ran up and down the stairs and has ideas for how she is going to decorate. Brought me a goodie bag of things for a housewarming gift which included erasers, hair clips and pencils. Gotta love her. Have a great weekend. Blessings Pam

Happy New Years! Word for 2015!

Just Be! I chose Just Be for my word for the New Year. I pondered several words this year and this one came to me over and over.
The meaning to Just Be: “It’s about the dedicated practice of felt awareness and gratitude to the present moment for the purpose of living well and in joy.”
So perfect for me! I am happy just to be right now. Just be happy, Just be thankful, Just be hopeful for the future, just be loved, respected and liked, just be who I am.
This year I turn 43 and I am at the point in my life that I rejoice in my happy, healthy life. I recognize what all God gives me, what all I have been through, and what all I have. I look forward to The New Year and what it has to offer. My hope for you is the same. Gods Blessings today, tomorrow and always. Blessings Pam

Merry Christmas!

 Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. May you be healthy,happy, and blessed in 2015!
 My granddaughter Londyn and her step brother Tison. She adores her big brother. We went to Storybook Land and he asked if he could call me grandma? She said call her gammy. Love them.
 My daughter had this pic above blown up for me for Christmas. I love it!

My son Noah and I! I must say I sure see a resemblance in the two of us. Do you? He is a kind soul.
I am so very blessed for both my children. (not pictured is my daughter Jordan). She has the most giving soul. She reminds me of my mom in that department. We enjoyed our little family over last evening for dinner and a small gift exchange. Today they will come over later for another dinner and another gift exchange. God Bless you all. Pam

Are You Ready?

 Are you ready for Christmas. I don't think I ever am until Christmas Eve. Every year I say I will get started earlier and every year I am out the day before finishing up.
 My jolly banner was just found the other day. My 1 2 3 candle display has tipped over several times.
 I do like however what I did with my cake stand. I love the colors I picked to put in there.
 I found these cute little matchsticks on my second return to The Vintage Roost. They are going to go well with the candles I am giving as gifts. The clove box is a gift also.
 I managed to craft one evening and made a few simple cards. I saw this idea on instagram and thought I could do that. The fun part was my granddaughter and I did it together.
I want to wish you all A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Gods Blessings! Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
