Mona Pants cracks me up...

She is a rescued Boston Terrier who lives in Florida.
She has many you tube videos.
This one especially gave me the giggles.

Turn the volume up and enjoy.

Mona Pants has great taste in music, too.

Happy Monday, all.

A great attitude is like...

a perfect cup of coffee.

What started out as a $2.94 paint sample...

turned into a day of furniture rearranging.

Welcome to my world.

As I sat and stared at my little matte black corner pine hutch cupboard I thought... Time to paint it.

"Stepping Stones" by Behr was the color it had to be. So I made a beeline down to the Home Depot.
Oh little Behr paint samples, how I love you so!
I was able to paint it with one little sample jar.

That led me to wanting to move the living room furniture around. Why? Who knows? But it did.
Surely there is another crazy furniture painter/rearranger kindred spirit out there. Right?? They just don't blog about it. ((giggle))

This time I dragged my sweet hubs
(kicking and screaming) into it. Okay. He wasn't kicking and screaming. It was more like, "What the h*ll are you doing now, Chickie??!!"
I just smiled and said, "Nothing, Sweetheart... But I need your help."

There is definitely more room with this set up. The only problem is, I am one of those people who prefers not to have furniture block any windows. I am a natural light freak and now the sofa is in front of the windows.

So I don't know how long I'll keep it this way.
I do know after the hassle my poor, sweet hubs had moving the &*@#* cable line from one place to another, it will have to stay like this for awhile. That is of course until I decide to wrestle with the &*@#* cable line myself.

As always, little Stella supervised.

Where did this week go????

Seems like I just posted on my blog. But that isn't the case.
What have I been doing??
I've been working on some of my Countryfolk Keepsakes critters.

Ummm... I've also been on Pinterest and Craigslist.

In my defense I did get some house cleaning done, too.
Hope that last one sounded believable.

Happy Saturday, all.

I am such a sucker for vintage Early American maple furniture...

So nostalgic for me. Brings me back to when I was a kid.

I've been on a search for a small maple colonial style open hutch for quite some time. But most out there are gigantic and too over powering for our humble farmhouse. The smaller ones are hard to find. BUT I finally found a vintage Baumritter.

It tucked in that spot perfectly, too.

Yippee! I finally get to display my vintage Liberty Blue dishes.

Well hello there, General Washington.

Man, I would love to get my mitts on the Declaration of Independence turkey platter. Maybe someday.

That precious bald angel is one of my favorites! Not only do I consider Audrey (BayRay's Child a dear friend, she's also a favorite doll artist of mine. The gal can decorate, too!! Check out her blog.

Even though I put a lot of work into my dry sink, I decided to sell it on Craigslist. I made a promise to my sweet hubs... when a "new" piece of furniture comes in, one has to go out.

But knowing someone else will enjoy it much as I have makes me happy. A win-win for everyone!

Happy Friday, all!!

Stay warm!!

It's a new year and I'm at it again...

 photo space_zpswrucwyba.jpg

I'm making room for "something."
What on earth could it be, you ask??

I'll give you a hint... I've been on Craigslist.
Shhhh... Don't tell my sweet hubs.
It'll be our little secret.

More at Eleven.
((hee hee))

Happy Thursday, all!
