Living Room Drama

Hello my friends.

As most of you know I have been struggling with trying to make my very small square living room serve both as a living room and also a dining area.  It has been a real learning curve on what will work.

Before and After Hallway

Happy Tuesday.

We bought this vintage cottage style home last July and since we have been trying to paint all the trim, baseboards and doors throughout the house.
The trim, doors and baseboards were all in orange stained wood.  I do not like that orange that happens in old wood over time.

Heart Wrenching and Heart Warming Together

This is so moving and I urge all of you to watch this video.  It is not long and it is so amazing and heart wrenching and heart warming all at the same time.

And The Winner Is... Home Feature

Living Room Dining Room Combo

Hello Sweet Friends

Hope you are all staying warm.  We finally have old man winter arriving in Illinois.  Those lovely Spring like temps we had in December and the first part of this month were just a tease.  The real stuff is here.

I shared with you the new table Terry made for me out of a vintage drop leaf table we salvaged for the legs.  
It fits in perfectly in the corner of the living room in front of the bay window.

Give Away and Charity Girlfriend Party

Last night was my Girlfriend Charity Party.  We get together each year and celebrate our friendships and wear our cute themed pajamas.

New Dining Room and Valances

Hello Everyone.  With taking down Christmas Decor everything seemed so stark. I made this old vintage tile vase into door decor. Added some faux flowers and nest and ribbon.  Much more cheerful than a plan door.

Kitchen Re Do

Hello Everyone. I was trying to wait for a day of sunshine to show off my new counters but not sure when we will see another day with sunshine. So please know these counters looks so much better than in pictures. Ugh for gloomy winter days.

Valentine's Day Ideas

Chicago Fun

We have been staying with my two granddaughters this past week.  
My SIL and Daughter have been in the Keys for a wedding.  80 plus degrees each day.
