Blessed and still pinching myself!




 My sweet friend Anne came over to see my new place and helped me put my mantle together. I am in love with how it turned out. It has been fun to use my things in different rooms at the new home. She is super excited about my upcoming business as I am, and helping me with a logo and a name. I cant wait to see what we come up with.
 Each day I unpack treasures I forgot I had along with packing up some for an upcoming sale in the spring.


 These treasures pictured above is a keep pile for sure.
A couple weeks ago I won this beautiful wallet from The Pokey Rose. The owls represent my late parents and I was so tickled to win this. Blessed by so many in the blogging world and instagram world. Hope you have a wonderful day. I pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming. I am so so blessed and grateful for each and everyone of you! Blessings Pam

She turned 6!




Our granddaughter turned 6 Jan 30th. She is getting so big. Always a smile on this girls face. She is a happy girl. I am so proud to be her Gammy. She is loving Ballet and Jazz and is working on a big recital in June. She got a Hobby Lobby giftcard for her birthday and picked out stuff for her room. The No Boys Allowed sign was one thing she got. Enjoy your Sunday. Blessings Pam

Starting to make a home!

 Well we are getting rested and settled. Man what a couple of weeks it has been. I had no idea how much stuff I had until I had to pack it and move it. I will be having a huge sale in the spring. With this home brings some new modern decorating. I guess you can say out with the old and in with the new. We did a little furniture shopping and found these chairs. I have to say I kinda like the spring appeal they have.
 Had to have moms sewing machine in the house for sure. It is beat up and old but I love it so.

 This three tier basket was a win from The Painted Fox. Oh how I love it! It seems to be a catch all at the moment.
 During Christmas I had received some nice gifts that just went straight in the box and I couldn't wait to find this owl cookie jar from a dear friend Anne.
 This wood wall is kinda a eye sore but I am finding it making me want to decorate a little rustic and darker wood.
 Love this scale, it also came from a friend. I think I will incorporate it with the items below in my laundry space which I hope to upgrade soon.

I couldn't refuse this dress form that was also was a good score for only $10.00. Cant wait to see what I will do with it. Hope your enjoying your evening. Cant believe it is Feb already. Blessings Pam

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
