USED FURNITURE

Now take a close look - this is the picture I took in the store....it looks more greenish - huh?

Well I do not know if you all remember back in February when we got that really cold Winter and low low temperatures in the teens; our house sprinklers busted and our home flooded with six inches of water throughout the downstairs. To make a long story short, we had over $80,000 worth of damage.

Our home has finally been remodeled, and it looks great!!! We have the final inspection next week! We made a lot of changes, changed out Granite to a lighter color, wall paints to a lighter color, adding Plantation Shutters, added a new Entertainment system, Wine Bar, carpets, hardwood flooring (a lighter shade and better quality wood), new doors inside and out, new hardware, faucets, shower doors, etc. etc. We are very pleased with the way it turned out and cannot wait to move back in.

In the meantime, we said we were not going to buy any more furniture. Well, except Bedroom furniture because we want a lighter color and no more dark wood. Not many furniture stores carry light colored wood furniture anymore!! So, we went to a High Dollar Consignment Store and they had a lot of good things! We ended up buying a living room set for our new reading/quiet/relaxing room which used to be my hubby's office. Anyway, this furniture caught our eyes and we just had to have it. Now, in the store it looked more of Green tones. We get it delivered to our home and place it in the reading room and the color changed. Isn't that weird!!! I sat there staring at it for about thirty minutes second guessing our purchase! Like I always do and hubby gets frustrated with me because of that! Anyway, I hope we made a good choice for that room. The dogs love it and had to do their usual sniff and sit on it. I think they enjoy it because now they can perch up on the couch and look out the window!!!

I think after we get the room decorated and add an area rug and shutters in place it will perhaps all fall together and look elegant! But, I am stuck with it either way. I do like it, but I always think and know that I will find something better afterwards. Happens to me all the time! LOL!

Funny thing, my dear friend and neighbor down the street have similar furniture in their living area......I hope when they see it they do not think we are copying them....although their home looks like a model home and is super clean and nicely decorated!!

oh well!!!

A sneak peek at our Dog's Photo Shoot




Each time I get our dogs groomed they know we will have a photo shoot! So, this is what I was doing this morning! One dog is not pictured. Benji, the Shih Tzu has a mind of his own and does not partake. It is hard to get him to sit still long enough for a picture and most times he has his mind made up and runs and hides from the camera!!!!

Who says Dogs are not human!!! LOL!

On another note! Thanks to my two loyal followers on my blog for your sweet comments. I really appreciate them. I, like you will never know why some people have to be mean spirited! I am guessing because they are not happy in their own lives and so as the saying goes "Misery loves company!"

Have a great day everyone. Oh, and about my hair we ended up just trimming it and I forgot to take a picture of it that day. I really did not like the way she styled it so I guess that too was part of the reason. Too me, my hair still looks the same!!! Don't you hate when that happens!!!!! LOL!

BE NICE

I hate posting this but it is aimed at a certain someone who left a comment on one of my posts. I just detected some jealoulsy. No big deal! My Life will go on!!!!

REMINDER: IF YOU CANNOT SAY ANYTHING NICE THEN DO NOT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT I WRITE ABOUT THEN MOVE ON AND FIND SOMETHING ELSE THAT INTERESTS YOU.

THANK YOU!

And to all my other friendly blog readers I love hearing from you all!!! Have a great day!

Many Blessings to all!

It's gonna be a new hair day today!!!


Let me confess first! In this picture I did not style my hair.....not that I can't do it this way (because it does take a lot of time)! I went to get an evaluation on my hair because my hair is breaking and feels dry and is overly processed and my bangs needed a trim and because I want to cut it so that the layers will all be one length. Anyway, I am going in today to cut it to one length perhaps and to get the GREY colored and my highlights touched up! Wish me luck!!!!!

Then headed to see the new carpet that was laid down in our other home. I got Bright Pink carpet for my craft room to match the paint and wallpaper which has been there with ugly beige carpet and it just did not make my room pop! Cannot wait to see it and to move all my craft stuff back to the city. I will miss my lovely purple walls and purple carpet in my craft room now!!! Spoied yes! I know! But, that is my life!

But because this post was only to be about my hair - I will not post pics of my craft rooms just yet. I will post next week!
Have a great weekend!!!

Halloween decorating is still coming along!
