Red Rover Red Rover...

...I don't like my hall tree.
So it's getting a makeover!!

Remember I showed you this hall tree in my foyer?

And then I posted this pic after I painted it promising to show more?

But I never did show more. On purpose.  Because I never liked it.  So, now it is getting a re-redo.

And, yes, it is red.  RED!

Red furniture on a red wall! Whatcha think?

No sneak peak this time around. But, hopefully I will like the new color and will post the reveal in a couple of weeks.

Wild & Crazy

I found this quote on Pinterest. (Where else?)

This is something I use to remind my children of from time to time when they were growing up because I firmly believe it to be true!

My friends may be few, but they are loyal, like-minded, selfless, and cherish my friendship as well.

And three of them are wild and crazy!  Well, actually, more crazy than wild!  And to be perfectly honest mostly crazy when we are all together!  (They are going to kill me for posting these pics)

The four of us took a trip together last year, and laughed and cut up all the way to Mexico and back.  It wasn't our first "adventure" and there has NEVER been a lack of fun and "craziness" when we hit the road or high seas!!

We will soon be on another adventure and I can't wait to see what lies ahead!  The only thing I can be sure of is that it will not be this:

Only because we will stay on dry land this time!!

My Dirty Little Secret...

Is out of the bag!!

This is my very tall and very old curio cabinet that  has been sitting in the same spot for several years.

 When we moved it to take out the carpet, this is what we found:

I never moved it to clean behind it (obviously) because I was afraid it would tip over and I couldn't stand to think about breaking the curved and beveled glass.  

We are still working on the living room.  No new floors yet.  We found where water had been coming in under the patio door and had to address that problem.  Currently, we are working on  leveling the concrete floor (involves sanding and filling) and painting the room.  Hopefully we will start on the floors next weekend.  

Here I am vacuuming my 18 year old carpet for the last time 

Bye Bye Carpet!!

On a completely different note, here is a pic of my new "grand" dog.  
Cute as a bug with personality to match!
