Well, I finally got off my lazy behind and did a few things! I started with lamp shades I'm sick of...
Laced them up a bit..
AWFUL! Why, oh why did I think I needed flowers on that shade. Just the touch of lace would have been enough. Just pretend they aren't there, because they are not. I just now got up and went and RIPPED them off! Just the lace at the top..and it's enough of a change to make me happy. I cut all those dinky little tassels off... :) and now it looks perfect! It's the little things..the little touches that make a home one's own.
I overdo things...I know..but
I mean, what do you expect of someone who has seven children in a row... :)
The whole dresser top is going to get a "redo"...soon. (possibly..)
Added a different kind of lace to the bedside lamp. All is crocheted. That's me at age five, I think, and my baby brother, Georgie, who passed away at age 2. It hurts to this very day.
My poor, poor mother and father. He choked on a peanut. I've written about it here a long time ago.
Yes, our bedroom is old fashioned...but OLD folks live in it! :) It's a comfortable room...AND my wall paper arrived for the bathrooms and two wall in this room. I'm taking the hallway paper right on into the bedroom.
When I opened the bathroom wallpaper.. I could have cried with relief. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! The photo's of it did NOT do it justice...and the texture..just wonderful. I'm so happy!
Can't wait for it to be done so I can show it to you. I will remember to take before pictures this time!
Lets see what else..
No one has EVER accused me of being smart..
...I bought a new doll, and I haven't a clue why. Ever since the children were little, I have used toys that they no longer played with, to decorate with. A little doll cradle on the fireplace..a baby doll in it..I mean why not.
I love buying old things and fixing them up. It's inexpensive and I know a lot of you do the same thing.
And yes, the doll is a used one I found on ebay. I'm going to change her clothes and dress her in baby girl clothes tomorrow. She just came a few minutes before I took the picture. I love that little face!
The news of the snow in Maine has us a little worried. We have lots of people in Maine and the rest of New England.
Be safe all of you who are inundated with snow!!
I have some visiting to do. DO NOT give up on me. I'm on my way!! :)
