~MANTEL MANIA..~

I can remember when I did what I do now without giving it a thought.  
For the past couple of days things have been a bit of a mess due to all the wall papering going on.  
So far, both bathrooms and the halls are completed.  In April I will try and get the master bedroom done..then the guest room.  
:)
It's so nice to get things done I've been wanting to do.

I love these...and haven't a clue what they are called, but they are perennials and return every year, Both front and back yards. 
Please click on picture for detail. 

  Did you notice I got my mantel finished?  I'm done!  No more tweaking, no more shifting..it's over for the season. Wrong.  I added the eggs to the garland. You can see them in the new header.  I cut off the antlers when I took the picture.  After Easter I think I will just remove the eggs and leave the rest.  I think with the Easter baskets removed..the bunnies will do fine through to July.  
Like I said, I used to do it all with one arm tied behind my back.  Now my arm is behind my back trying to make it not hurt so much. :)

It was 95 degree's here today.  Outside on the porch for a second cup of coffee after having my virtual cup of coffee with my blogger friend, Jean, who doesn't blog.  She visits.  :)

I sort of over crowded the mantel..but..Penny is having an effect on me..never turns out like her's though.  :(  
OH MY!  I know whats missing!!  Lace!!  No matter..I am NOT redoing that mantel.
All done!  

Big hugs and Happy Weekend!

~SOME LITTLE THINGS.....

The last five days have sped by..I've been a bit under the weather so I haven't been blogging and my Easter decorating has been very, very slow.
I will feel better tomorrow..how does the song go?
"One day at a time, sweet Jesus? " :)

I found this charming little lamp on Etsy in the same little shop as I found my other things on a previous post..NO garage sales..bad knee!  
(ho hum..)
.  I visit her shop frequently.  She makes her shades.  Fascinates the heck out of me.  I wish I could do things like that!

I also bought this little Mother Goose pillow and the sweet lacy pillow next to her.  I am a sucker for silk ribbon roses.  bobby was kind enough to give Mother Goose a new  head dress for me. 


I am also having fun dressing up my doorways.  This is the hallway and the light had to be on because there is no natural light.  If you look up at the ceiling over the valance, you can see the huge ceiling fan.  I thought the curtains would get pulled up into it..but..nope.  
 I've done two more doorways since I did the hall.
The second bathroom will be papered on Thursday.  Same paper as the little power room

That's it.  That's all I've got.  The days have been beautiful and when I'm feeling better I will start on the patio...right now I have to be content with sitting on the porch in the early  morning sun.
I'm afraid the bunnies will end up being my summer decor.   

I'm loving my wall paper.  I really am!!

I wish I had something profound to offer, but my brain and bod are in low gear! 
Until next time.
big hugs..
