Getting a few things Done...

I changed out the wreath on the front door...I bought this at the thrift store...under 4.00 :)


Hubby helped me hang the chandelier yesterday in the living room. I also put new fabric on the little bench and it looks so much better :)
I kept thinking today was Sunday...even thou I vacuumed the house, mowed the front yard and then was in the garage for a few hours...
HELP............................I NEED A BIGGER GARAGE............................
Daughter brought over MORE stuff and hubby decide to go through some of his stuff and of course...I have my stuff......
I HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF..........................................
this will be the only time you hear me say this...until the next time..............
Tomorrow is Kailee's first day of first grade and I will be picking her up from school and then we will go to the DQ...it's our "tradition"...........
I'm also going to my "regular" gal for my haircut and am thinking about something a little more..
FUN...I have a picture of what I think I want...I'll let you know later....
Thanks for all your support during my little pity party...it's sad that some of you have had the same experience...I so feel for you...
Warmly,
Deb :)

The chandelier looks great in your living room, Deb. I know what you mean about having too much stuff. I bit the bullet and threw out a bunch of stuff this weekend because I couldn't handle the clutter.

Have fun tomorrow ... how special you are picking up Kailee. Hope you enjoy your DQ. And I want to see your new hair-do!

Jane said...

My gosh.....you were one busy lady this weekend...puts me to shame :-) Your living room looks very pretty. Love the chandelier!

Sounds like you have been working hard. I think I need to clean out,but so many things are to nice to give away. It seems all people want here is junk cheap. I have so much from my shop I just can't let it go for free...hum not sure what to do.

I wanted to hang my fall wreaths today on my front doors and wouldn't you know it, I couldn't find them! I've kept them stored in the same spot for years and years...truly I don't know where they went. I'll have to do some more searching tomorrow.

DQ, yummy!

I'm so sorry about your missing giveaway package. Hey, remember I got a Christmas package returned to me months after I sent it out. Maybe yours will show up after all!

Hey Deb!
I love what you did with the chandy! It looks great in your living room. Happy Birthday to your handsome son...that is such a great picture of you and him, and it sounds like you both had such a fun day! I'll tell ya, the description of the food makes me hungry this morning! LOl! I hope your garage sale goes well, I need to have one or I need to go to the flea market bad. No, I haven't found a whole lot at the yard sales lately. It's still 88 degrees around here....I'm hoping the weather will cool down some soon, and there will be more yard sales. We usually go yard saling well into December. Seem to find more in Oct. Nov. months, when the weather is cooler and better. I wish I could come to your yard sale! Wish I could have been there at the fair with you eatin' one of those cream puffs too! That day sounded like so much fun! Girl, you are a brave one taking the slide ride! I love the corndogs they make at the fair too....Okay I'm off to find something to eat in the kitchen now...I've gotten good and hungry! LOL! Have a great day Deb!
P.S. Your wreath is so pretty!
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Holly said...

So happy you got a Chandelier, Deb! It looks great. My cieling are too low for one.

Ha! I think I'm the only person I know who doesn't think she has too much stuff! (It's just because I've had to move so often!)

Have fun at DQ! Oh how I would love to go to DQ with one of my Grandgirls! I think I'm ready to move to Idaho! ♥

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

The wreath speaks of the changing of seasons...m.

Hi, Deb You sure have been a busy gal! The chandelier looks cute in the corner. I think your bench stands out more now, your livingroom is so pretty! I just love that picture of you on the slide! It's great to be able to act like a child! Hope you enjoyed your DQ! Take care, Fran.

Hi Deb, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Love that chandelier, what a great makeover! Your wreath is adorable. I'm sending your seeds out in the AM. We have had so much rain and they were not drying out. I hope they do well for you. I'm sending a few different types for you.
So sorry about that giveaway package.
Bless you, Shirl

Terra said...

It sounds like you have a lot of fun with your wonderful garage sale and thrift store finds. You obviously have an eye for potential; your chandelier was so beautifully transformed by you.

Dogwood said...

Lovely front door wreath. Maybe you could get an expandable garage like that cool pieces of luggage that can expand as needed! Have a fun day

BittersweetPunkin said...

Hi Deb...I am hearing stories of more packages lost or stolen these days....so sad. I love the chandelier also...very sweet! I have a garage full of STUFF too because we don't have a basement...we have to park both our cars in the driveway...isn't that funny?

Hugs,
Robin

Hi Sis ~ I'm so sad about your giveaway presents...I really hope they show up :(

I absolutely love the chandelier...beautiful! I'll be cleaning the house this weekend, trying to make room for baby stuff. Then it's out to the garage to make room for bringing my truck in there...Glenn's gonna replace the engine...yippeee!!! I can't wait to have my baby back...I miss that truck so much!

Have a great weekend...

Hugz,
