|Well I finally got the rest of the pics loaded up! These aren't that fabulous but I was determined to get them on here. This old basket I picked up at the antique mall. It has red around the edges. I just love it.|
|Fake books... everyone needs these right?|
|I don't know why but these are just so cute to me.|
|This is the second bathroom. Appropriately outfitted in ocean.|
|My friend Heather brought me the little ocean picture on the left. It was just perfect for the space.|
|And a few more pics of granny's bed.|
|Now don't try to stay past check out time... because it is Strictly Enforced!|
|And lastly my new C I got this at Hobby Lobby. I love all of the letters that are so popular right now. |
Blessings and Love,

|My friend Heather got me this for my birthday back in June.|
|The curtains are hung. I just love the pink touches.|
|This is the painting I bought for my antique booth. It never did sell and I loved it. So it is now in the bathroom.|
|I picked up this little picture at an antique mall for $3.00. I thought it was cute.|
|In the living room I added a few touches. It still has some work but it is coming along.|

|Imagine my delight when I checked my mailbox and I had a special delivery all the way from Lincolnshire, England. I had won a blog give away from Mama's Mercantile!|
|Inside was a beautifully wrapped package. I just love the little flower pin that I can reuse on a blouse or purse.|
|And so many beautiful buttons all sewn on the cutest cards. I am not sure how I am going to use them yet but I do have a few ideas..... wink wink|
|This is the inside of it. |
If you have never looked at her blog go over and check it out. She is a very industrious woman. Always creating and crafting something.
Thank you so much Lorraine! I just love the whole gift!!!

|I have been telling y'all that I have been very busy and traveling a lot. Well the reason I have been doing that is this. I told you in this post about a piece of property we bought in Steinhatchee, FL. We have been going there for years and my parents own a place there. I had contacted the elderly gentleman next door. I noticed they had not been up in years. Their place was literally falling apart. So I wrote him a letter letting him know that my parents were his next door vacation neighbors. And we were interested|
in buying his place.
He called me and let me know that he would think about it. Well long story short he sold it to us for a really great price. And he removed the old mobile home off of it and everything. We were left with a blank piece of property. We thought we would eventually build a small cottage or put a mobile home back on it.
|Now this is a treasure I found at Goodwill for $200.00 it was the complete bed. Headboard footboard and side rails. It was in perfect condition, BUT you know I love painted furniture. So....|
|She got a paint job. In the palest of pinks! I love how it turned out.|
|I put on some new Rachel Ashwell shabby pink sheets and Vintage Ralph Lauren bedding.|
|Wa La my favorite thing so far! As you can see I still have painting to do on the window trim.|

|So back to the laundry room. I love how it turned out with the white bead board on the walls all the way to the ceiling.|
|I got this vintage tissue holder and I decided to use it in my laundry room as a dryer sheet keeper. It is very handy and cute too (wink).|
|My bookshelf filled with all of my supplies for soap making. As well as all of the little extra stain treatments and such. What do you think of the 1950's duck lamp? It is a favorite of mine.|
|On top of the freezer I have this old tole tray, a sweet little bucket and more supplies.|
|I love this Christy Repasy Painting. So cute for the laundry room.|
|My hat display I bought from Carol at the Polka Dot Closet with a favorite hat.|
|It is one of the rooms that we spend so much time in every day, I think it should be pretty and make you feel as happy as possible. Of course that means different things to different people. These things make me smile.|
|A very sweet vintage baby dress.|
|I hope you enjoyed the little tour of a room I spend a LOT of time in.... |
I am so glad to be back in the loop my dear blogging friends.
Until Next Time,

|I have been trying to prepare a post and for some reason blogger will let me get the attachment and then when I push the button to upload it freezes. Wahhh! I hate when things like this happen! As soon as it is fixed I will post.|
I do hope all of you are having a lovely summer.... It seems to be flying right by. Today I am just enjoying being home for a change. I have put 4500 miles on my car since June 18th.... That is a lot of driving! Today I am cleaning and just rearranging things.... washing laundry, and all manner of house hold things. Blessings and love to you all.
