Latest Read


My latest read is "Angel in the Rubble" by Genelle Guzman-McMillan.  The story is about how she was trapped in the rubble of 911 & was miraculously the last person rescued.  Very inspirational book!


Happy Friday & enjoy your weekend!

Another Kitchen Before/After

Nope, not mine.  How many kitchens have this 'before' look & would love to transform it? Check out all about the process here at MosaicWorks!  They did a great job & loving the new white kitchen. By the way, the new countertops are Corian.   From the pic, they look like marble.

Before:

After:

Isn't that gorgeous?
Wishing you a fun filled weekend!

Let it Snow

My backyard last year!


Can you believe we had light snow here last night? I'm not really ready for snow, but it got me thinking about something I added to the blog a year ago.  Want to add some subtle snow to your blog?  Go to Design-Add HTML Gadget & add the following text:

Best Leather Cleaner Ever!

I found this link yesterday on Pinterest and can't believe it worked.  Have some leather that needs to be cleaned? I just used this on a leather chair & it worked great.  Click here for the info!

P.S.  I tried this with some $1 foam carpet stain remover from the Dollar Tree. Guess what? It worked amazing too!

Shutter Update

In our master bathroom, we have a little problem. Since we put the Timbertech deck outside the bathroom window, we needed to make sure the view into the bathroom was not visible.   I was inspired by this pic from Tobi Farley's master bath makeover where she used a shuttered window:


Here are some pics of how it looked 'before':

This was an old shutter that I've had up for a L-O-N-G time!

This is the window from outside. Hmm, a possible update to the blinds in the bedroom? !!

Enter our new plantation shutter that we ordered from Lowe's:


And here it is all installed. I like that it looks more simplified & a cleaner look from both inside & outside:




Problem solved.  Happy Thursday to you!
