Well, my blog needed some cleaning up as it was looking a bit "shabby" shall I say. I have been in the middle of a French Country Dining Room makeover this past week. Did I tell you that I do room designs and room makeovers? This part of my life is part of "The Flea Circus" You can click on the button over to the right and see what that is all about.
Anywhoooo, the project is complete! Which I will be sharing the before and after pics really, really soon!
But, I digress. I cleaned up, added some new fun buttons and re-wallpapered my blog. You can even follow me on twitter now by clicking on the "t" pennant in the left hand corner.
Easter decorating has begun here! Maple bucket with faux tulips and boxwood, rusty mattress springs hold flameless large white votive candles, my collection of rabbits, bunnies, etc. from every store around, Beatrix Potter books that were in my son's nursery.
And this was a good day at the Grocery Store
And this is my new hugo-mungo chalkboard wall that is not fully shown here, but trust me it's a big one!

ugly white tile-some builder in the 1960's
We had such a fun vacation and I also did some redecorating of my own. I painted a HUGE chalkboard wall in my house. I bought fancy wedding cake molding (I don't know if it's called that, but I named it that. It looks just like fancy frosting) and added that around the edge. I purchased the molding at the Restore for Habitat for Humanity. I bought some vintage shutters too for my living room re-do. We donated our change to the project as well. I made my son pay and explained to him the donation he was making. So nice to donate to such a great cause! Ugly white tile is being replaced with white beadboard. That's another big project.
In a nutshell, I have had fun writing down quotes, menus and messages.
Will, my step-daughter, Dani and Max the dog
We had a FANTASTIC time on vacation this past week! I always love sharing time with Will as we cuddle and play and I make days just for him and we do whatever he'd like to do. What a blast we had! Now, it's back to school, but we are that much closer to summer vacation! (It is snowing right now as I type!)
