Light & Bright Living Spaces


Bright colors and natural light. That's what a room needs.


So many pretty colors to feast your eyes on. And look at the ceiling. The unexpected.


Love the golds paired with nature's green.


Tranquil yet full of whimsy.




Don't be afraid to use different shades of the same color.


Always display what's important to you. What makes your heart sing.


Plants soften the edges of a room.


The black and white flower canvas is fanciful and fun.

Welcome Wagon Friday 2/28/14


It's that day of the week again. The last Friday in February.

Up for you this week I have...



I like her use of color.




You will be amazed with the house they started with, and how far they've come.




That's a great stencil job on the wall. And she made the window shade.



Okay, trusty volunteers, please give them a visit.

Jolijn Design


This blogger is one crafty girl. Her blog is Jolijn Design.


This is a good idea. She's organized as well, you'll see.





I think this is her tea station.


No detail is too small to be unobserved.



Not quite sure how she managed this. But she had several varieties.



How handy-dandy she is!

Charlie And Home Hunting


First, I want everyone to know that Charlie is doing really well. He gets a bit of his prescription dry food and can't seem to figure out how to eat it yet. 

He had nine teeth taken right in front and one on each back side. He's my little trooper. And I thank you all for your concern.

I need tranquility right now. I've been searching for some place to move for over a year. I'm at the point now where I want to move before I have to pay for the upkeep on the yard  (mowing, trimming of trees) that I can't handle myself, because that is an added expense. 

I'd like to be able to save a bit for my taxes so I don't have to find a way to come up with it all at once. 


I've looked online for lots of places out of town, but am afraid with my ankle it would be hard for me both to move.

What it has boiled down to is this: I HAVE to be able to have my pupsters. I really wanted a small yard for the dogs with some sort of a fence, a washer/dryer connection, non-carpeted floors, and obviously something I can afford. 

Seems I just can't have all that, so will have to give up something. And it WILL NOT be the pupsters. 

So I've been anxious about all this for weeks, actually months, now. I go to bed thinking about it and I wake up thinking about it. 

I scour Craig's List every morning and make calls. It's about to do me in, to tell you the truth. Because I just can't figure out quite what to do. 


I'm really tired of moving, but I can't keep paying for plumbing and electrical repairs on this house, which is in my lease. 

The landlord that has a house next door has so many broken limbs in a huge tree, and won't ever take care of it. 

Then we get an ice storm and it falls on my old electric line to my house and brings it down. That's $200 I have to pay to get that hooked back up and working again. 

I really need to find that landlord, but I've got so many other things I'm trying to do that I just haven't. 

Oh, to have a home I never had to leave. To have one that was mine and I could do what I wanted within it. Doubt that is ever going to happen. Such is life.
