Since you asked

Several of my blog visitors inquired about the fabric I used for my chair "re-do" project and I thought I would share one of my online "guilty pleasures". I purchased the fabric at

They have a wide variety of fabrics but I always gravitate toward the more "shabby chic" patterns. Check them out, I am sure you will find something for a project you are dying to finish.....I always do!

P.S. I am so behind on posting; lots of packing and cleaning out and throwing out and giving away and re-purposing and well you know how it goes when you are moving and shifting your memory at a time.
Til Next Time,

Ice Breaker

I finished painting the ice bucket that I purchased at La Maison Rustique last month and thought I would share how it turned out. It was in pretty bad shape before I got the silver spray paint out and although I am not "thrilled" with the result, I can live with it and I think it will serve its purpose

It will be nice to sit out on my little patio in my new apartment home and enjoy the sounds of quiet! Counting down the days....

Movin On.........

I'm movin' on at last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me and I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone. There comes a time in everyone's life when all you can see are the years passing by and I have made up my mind that those days are gone.......

I took those words from a Rascal Flatts song of the same title and they really apply to my life as it stands today. I am moving out of the house I have shared with my husband and "MOVING ON" to a much more peaceful life with my little son and the opportunity to raise him in a quiet, loving, nurturing environment......that is all I want to say about that. Thank you for your friendships and those loving comments you leave on my blog. I treasure all of my visitors. I look forward to sharing my new home with you and so many possibilities for "new projects" already in the works.

New Fabric For My Old Chairs

I bought some new fabric a few months back and decided today was the day I was going to change the look of my shabby white chairs. They needed a fresh coat of none other than "White" paint and while they were drying, I went to town on the seats. When I finished, I realized that I had forgotten to take a "before" picture but I wanted to share the finished product with you anyway. Enjoy.....

I'm really happy with the way the arm chair turned out. I used a real feminine print as I would like to put it in my new bedroom. I can just see it in a pretty corner of my room. More to come on that!

I selected a rosy print for the other 2 chairs as they will go in my dining room and I am not sure what color palette I am going with until I start moving and painting and re-purposing my treasures. I like the feminine vibe of this fabric.

I only have 3 of these chairs as I found them at the Goodwill for $5.00 a piece. I know that in my travels, I can probably find some that are similar. I hope to find some that are very different as I am drawn to the mismatched eclectic look.

Thank you for visiting and thank you for your prayers. I will share what is going on in my life when the time is right. I appreciate all of the friends I have made as a result of blogging and cherish each one of you.

Still Here

I am still alive and well although I have not updated my blog for a little while. I have read about so many blog "sisters" who are going through life changing (and life threatening) experiences right now and my misery seems so small in comparison. I don't want to share too much right now, just keep me in your prayers and when the time is right I will let you know what is consuming my world at this time. I think about the song by the Gaithers entitled "Because He Lives" and the words of hope they convey; "Because He lives I can face tomorrow, because He lives, all fear is gone, because I know He holds the future and life is worth the living just because He lives".
I thank God everyday for walking side by side with me through the sunshine and the storms of life. He will never leave me nor forsake me.
Love to all my blog sisters,
