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..


  1. That is a very pretty lamp shade. I am always amazed when people are so talented with sewing.

    Sorry to read about your knee hurting. I hope it is something that will heal soon.

  2. What a pretty lamp. I do hope you are on the mend soon and your knee does not bother you too much. It is OK to take things slowly. Sometimes I think we should all sit back and think.
    Hugs Kay

  3. Feel better soon.

    I am glad you are enjoying your decorating.

  4. I hope you will feel better soon.
    I have missed our visits.

  5. You are my "Decor" person. I sure do enjoy you bits of wit n wisdom and as my Mum used to say" We never know what you will be decorating next" . You bring life to a house, you brighten it up, especially with that Maine fella holding up the mirror. ha,ha Tell him I said a special thanks for yesterday - it was a lovely day indeed - we shoveled the 8 foot drift on the walkway in the front of the house and got suntans doing it.....as it was so warm. Happy Face lol

  6. Hi Mona! Hope you're all feeling better now! What a darling lamp and little goose! I just love all of the romance you put into your home! Have a great week.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. I love that sweet Mother Goose! You'll have to let me know the Etsy shop name so I can 'window shop'! Enjoy your day sweet friend and feel better soon. Hugs, Diane

  8. that is a beautiful little lamp and i hope you feel better soon and the knee gets better..

  9. Sweet things you have shared...no need for
    apologies. =D Saying a prayer for you to be feeling better very soon.

  10. I love the lamp so pretty. The goose and pillow are out of this world. I hope you get to feeling better real soon my prayers are with you. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  11. awwww, I'm so sorry that you have been under the weather. -pout-

    just seems as if those "things," which should go away, after winter ceases, are hanging around this year. next door (5 year old) grandson, has his 2nd double ear infection. yishhhhh...

    it amazes me, how some people can make lovely shades. soooo pretttty... :-)

    get all better!!!!!!


  12. Mona, Isn't it wonderful to have a porch to sit out on? I sure hope your knee gets better. No fun not being able to get around like we want. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  13. Mending takes it's sweet old time as we get older, so please do not overdo it! I cannot wait to sit outside on my deck...:)JP

  14. I love your Mother Goose and sweet lampshade! I am sooooo jealous of your new wallpaper...would love to find some for my entry way! Take care of yourself...hugs...

  15. Love the lamp but really love the Mother Goose. Although, I haven't in awhile, I do a Mother Goose character along with my clowning.
    Feel better. Can anything be done for your poor knee.

  16. There has to be a time in life when it's OK to take it easy. So enjoy your pretty porch and lovely lamps! I hope you feel better soon and your knees will be better so you can get to the garage sales! Most of all,just take it easy for a change!

  17. Love your frilly decorations! Hope you feel better dear Mona, HUGS!

  18. So glad you are liking your wallpaper..it would be BAD if you didn't..that stuff is hard to take off...I've been known to paint over it, tho. :) I love wallpaper...so romantic.
