Looking back on my blog I realized I really didn't add too many entries from last holidays until now. That tells me how quickly time flies and how unbelieveable it is to realize another christmas is upon us. From our home to yours, I wish everyone a happy safe holiday.



P.S. I would like to say that im going to be a good blogger in the new year, I can't promise but I will try.

I don't know about everyone else, but I am thrilled to see that Nate Berkus has his own show. I have only watched one part of an episode, but so far, Im loving what the show many fantastic ideas!!! Nate is not only a fabulous designer but is a very compassionate giving person, I can't say enough good about him.

Im really hoping with summer coming to an end,( hopefully the craziness will) I will do more blogging. I may have a couple of furniture makeovers to share, but other than decluttering I haven't had much time for anything else. So many things going on in both my husbands family and mine, I guess that is just all part of life.

If anyone is a fan of Nate's and has seen his show, I would love to know what you think.

Wishing everyone well, and happy blogging

WOW!!! It has been so long since I have sat down and taken the time to add a new post, my poor blog has been so neglected. However, I have been stopping in off and on and checking up on my favourite blogs which always adds a smile to my face. As you know life just gets so crazy at times, we all have those times when even the things we love to do become hard to tackle. I have not been doing too much in the way of home decor but im pushing to get myself motivated again. You see, we purchased this home almost three years ago and I have been having a hard time making it feel like home, but im trying, as I need to give it an honest effort as it could just be this phase in our lives. I found this cabinet on Kijiji with the intentions of painting it, that hasn't happened yet but I did still go ahead and accessorize it and if you look in the mirror you will see, I finally got curtains on the patio doors....NO MORE BLINDS, YIPEEEEE!!! A couple of my girl friends like the cabinet as is and have been encouraging me to just change the hardware, so we will see. Hope everyone is well and decorating up a happy storm, im certainly going to do my best to stop by and visit my blogging friends.

I hope everyone had a great New Years!!! Now that another Christmas has come and gone and we now have rang in the year 2010..WOW!! time sure does fly. I remember when dh and I were dating in the 70's and we would talk about the year 2000, it seemed so far away and we would chuckle about how old we would be (ancient, so we felt) and we were convinced sidewalks would be moving like escalators and life would pretty much be like living in the world of the Jetsons. Well here we are 2010 and we don't have our moving sidewalks and robots to clean and cook for us...DAM!
Anyhoo, I had a great christmas, spent lots of time with friends and family and eating until I was ready to burst and was also showered with some awesome gifts, spoiled I would say.

Im not planning much in the New Year for any major decor, but I always like to spruce up each room or juggle things around, LOVE TO TWEAK!!!! I wasn't in need of a new comforter, however, I was given this BEAUTIFUL comforter for christmas from dh and the girls and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! I don't have the room pulled all together as of now, but I thought I would share where im heading with this little mini makeover. I promised dh that I would cut back on throw pillows, and thats okay Im all for less work. I will only be using these two decorative pillows (which were already here) ....easy peasy! The bench was made by a man in our area, he was making them to earn extra monies for xmas, love the rustic touch and purchased it with birthday money and of course a picture of the new comforter. When I am done all my tweaking, I will post a picture of the room and of course Im still working on the bathroom getting painted, again another inexpensive way to give a room a new look. I would love to hear about your plans for 2010.
HAPPY 2010
