HAPPY T G I F EVERY ONE!

image 

Hello there dear Friends;  I hope you are all planning to have a wonderful weekend.... Don't you just want to jump into a car and take a drive down this road..... and see where it goes.... (sigh)....  Any way I found where they have a Hobby lobby and that is where I am going tomorrow... The wall mart here doesn't have a very good craft area, they don't even have any fabric.... So I was so happy to see that there is a Hobby Lobby near by.... I can't wait to go.... I am going to be starting my Esty store up again,,, hopping I do better this time,,, but it won't be up right away, I am still making things for it, and when I have enough I will let you all know......  Now I have a few photos of our new home,, with some things we were able to bring back,, which was not much... But it is starting to look more like home...

home decor 002 This you have all seen before, but I did not have the curtains up then... I did not have a curtain rod to fit so I used what I had ,,, which was some twine,,, I did not get it tight, so it sags some in the middle... But at least I have some up... I should have closed the blinds....

home decor 005

This picture I hung up above the commode in the bath room, I looks pretty good there...

home decor 006 In our bed room, I hung up the curtains we had in our old bedroom... Love them,, they look really nice... again I should have closed the blinds.. so I hope you can see them ok,,, they are a white not too shear fabric,, it gives our bed room such a light and airy feel...

home decor 008 I also have my four poster bed up again..... I have missed it so much... and I hung up my beautiful Quilt behind it, where it belongs... it is starting to look like a real comfy bed room again....

home decor 010 This Painting is hung across the bed; It belonged to Honey bunnys G G ma Rods dad made the frame... I just love it... his dad gave it to us when we all had to help move grandma to a nursing home... beautiful fall colors in it....

home decor 012 Now this print I just moved from the hall way to the kitchen area,, it fits better there....

 

home decor 024 This one is over by the top of the stairs, I wish I could walk in their and sit and have tea..... love this print, such a beautiful garden setting...

home decor 022 And my little lamp,, I still have to finish spray painting the curtain rod that I am hanging the Quilt hubbys Dad made.. when done it will look so great together.... will make sure I take some photos of it when done.....  Well I hope you enjoyed just a few more photos of my new  home decor.... I have most of my craft things here, so I have started working some things... I have so much going on,,, making a baby quilt,, for my great niece, and and two more for a wonderful friend and her daughter.... knitting for Knit a Square charity, making a whole knitted blanket using 8x8ins squares in three beautiful fall colors.....  OH I even found a really great table to redo,,, in the dumpster area,,, I was walking Isabella,and got a peek at this table so I had to go take a better look,,, don't love the color,,, blue not a pretty one either,,, other wise in great shape... just needs the legs tighten up,, I am going to paint it and then do a Mosaic on the top and bottom shelf... I will have to take photos along the way to show you all my progress... now I just have to find the prefect plates for it,, I love the hunt...... Well sweet friends... I thank you for stopping by for a visit, I love reading your comments....  Have a wonderful weekend.....  So until next time; God Bless;

Hugs;

Alaura

Alaura, all your photos are lovely. Yes, I would love to take a drive down that beautiful scene and see where it leads. :o)

And I love love love Hobby Lobby too! I wish there was one closer to me. There are two that are 40 minutes away in different directions so I don't get there very often. Probably a good thing though, money-wise. ;o)

Hello Alaura,
Thanks for stopping by and reading my old posts. I haven't been blogging lately, but I am still gardening. We have a webcam now and I can talk to my son and see him in Iraq so that has been exciting. I am doing a reupholstery job and will be blogging my progress. It is a dumpster find but perfect for what I need.As I travel down the road the colors are beginning to look like you first picture. Best Wishes Meg

Alaura, how wonderful to have met you, thank you for stopping by my blog today. I love Enya as well it is such a soothing band. I love your blog, and have followed. Your back drop quilt behind the bed the pink and white one is so gorgeous. I love that picture of the little girl hugging the other, I think it was hard to see on my computer, the computer is acting up, my apologies if I saw it wrong. But again your blog is gorgeous.

Blessings and enjoy the rest of your weekend,
Heidi
