I want to wish everyone a
Very Merry Christmas,

A Bit Disappointed

I went to W.W. last night and I hadn't lost a thing! When I seen the numbers on the scale had stayed the same, I could have cried! For Real! I did NOT cheat this week! But hopefully I will find a larger than normal loss next Monday! I'm not giving up, just more determined to try even harder!

Bedroom Makeover

This is the area in the bedroom I made over! The settee matches the chairs in the dinning room, but I didn't want them in the same room together. I don't like that look where everything matches.

The great chair with German feed sack
I got from Jackie of Bliss Farm.

This statue is actually in the living room.
I collect nudes! What can I say, I wish I looked like that!

Simply changes can make such an impact. I know you don't have anything to compare it with, but I couldn't find any before pictures to show you, sorry! As I grow older I feel the need to simply my life more.
On a lighter note: I have struggled with the idea of sharing this with you guys, but here goes! I went back to Weight Watchers last Monday, not even sure if you are interested! I have struggled with my weight all my life! In the early 80's I did Weight Watchers and kept my weight off for 10 years. Two years ago I went back, lost 32 lbs. but put it all back on! This time I am serious about this! And I am very excited! The first week went very well, as a matter of fact Craig took a huge interest in what I was doing and he wants to go along with the plan. I think we can support each other, of course his weight will probably come off faster than mine!
Last night was weigh in and I lost 3lbs.!! I was so excited, I am officially on my way to becoming a healthier person! I will create a box in my side bar so you can follow along if you are interested!

Movin it around!

Hey guys, did you wander what happened to me? Well I guess I've been a little blog lazy lately! But Christmas is coming and I've been doing some serious house cleaning! On my hand and knees scrubbing floors for 5 hours yesterday! OMG! My floors are so clean you could eat off them!

And I've been sorting through some of my things to sell! Can't find anything to buy, so I've been shopping in my own house. I had bought some treasures for myself last year and never found a place to fit them in. So I took this opportunity to trade the old for the new! Well the new is old! Does that make any sense?

These are the wonderful chairs I bought at Leftovers last year, and this table came from Shelbyville Antique Market. I moved a huge prep table out to make room for them and I really like the results!

I'm loving the creams and browns!

Just got this wonderful mirror a few weeks ago!

These alabaster birds are from French Vanilla!

Wonderful head stone urn is from Clutter.

I am finally amassing several pieces of coral,
and it's displayed in a huge shell I bought for $20.

I love this little carriage,
reminds me of Cinderella.

Hope you enjoyed all my movin around!
I've done some changes in the bedroom,
but Craig was already asleep when I took pictures.
I'll show them in the next post!

Just a Short Note

Just a short note to inform everyone in Blog Land, I will be moving out of the the Shelbyville Antique Market at the end of December! If there is anything that has peaked your interest in my booth, you'd better rush on over and get it!

We have several shows coming up in the next few months and I am not having any luck finding inventory! This forces me to pull my inventory out of my booth so I will have something to sell at the shows!

Are there others out there having problems finding treasures?

What's going on?

When I uploaded pictures of Sarah's wedding, all I could see on the post was a bunch of words. When I published post the pictures came up but when I try to go back and edit, same thing, only words. Not sure what the problem is!

Any way, hope you enjoy pictures of Sarah's wedding! She looked so pretty and happy!

I wanted to show you how big Willie is compared to his mommy! Oh, wait maybe she is just little!

They got married Nov. 13, YES, that was Friday the 13th! Sarah is my little freak! She has wanted to get married on Friday the 13th for as long as I can remember!

Update: Boy, do I ever feel stupid! Thank you so much Isabel of Maison Douce! She explained to me I had the compose tab on instead of the Edit Html! I'm not sure how this got changed, but I learned a lesson today!! Thanks again Isabel!

Some more things!

Thought I would show you a few more pictures of some other things I love! I love this statue in the first picture, love how it is reflected in the mirror!

Love these white berries, I don't have a clue what they are called, I get them from Theresa Cano of Garden Antqs!

I just had to show you one more baby doll head, I know most of you are freaked out by them, but they are one of my favs! Just look at those teeth!
