Monday, Monday

How was your weekend? Ours was relaxing and Monday is starting off the same.

As for the comments on the door...wow! I knew I could count on my fellow bloggers to offer up some great advice! It was great hearing how many people do like the door, it made me feel better for having painted it like that in the first place.


I've decided to do some antiquing to it and then see how I feel about it. It's starting to grow on me already! I'll take some more pics after I get that done and show it to you again. This decorating thing can be such trial and error, and so much fun. Thank you for taking the time to weigh in and help this color confused blogger out.



I found these great corbels (that's what they're called right, corbels?) at an antique store for only $15. My younger daughter went into the store with me while the rest of my family stayed in the car. I'm telling you she would have bought everything in the place. Every time we turned a corner she was saying, "Ooooooo mommy, look at this...." She's like my little antique shopper mini me, my partner in crime.....




I told her she gets to help me decide where to hang them. We're going to put them inside the house somewhere. I'd use them on the porch but that would be....well.....too predictable, right?







And in other news, I have been asked by Cheri at Its So Very Cheri to let you in on a big, no Huge, maybe GINORMOUS is big enough, announcement. Be sure to MARK THIS DATE- Oct 1. All I know, is that you need to head over to Its So Very Cheri on Oct 1 so you don’t miss out on this big event. She’s never done anything this big. So grab the button and place it on your side bar so you don’t forget, plus your friends will be glad you let them in on it too.



Will you be there? I know I will.

Glad you had a nice, relaxing weekend. My husband and I had our 12th anniversary Saturday, so he took the weekend off of work. It's been really nice to have him home.

I love those corbels you found. Can't wait to see where you decide to put them. They are going to look so pretty no matter where they go.

Have a great day!! :)

Love your blog!!! So many neat ideas & links! I'm happy I found your door post...I have many hollow core doors in our upstairs (house built in 1991) orangy brownish doors! yuck! Anyway, I need to just get aggressive & tackle the project~ I've been delaying because there are 7 (not including closets) that badly need it! Glad I found your blog! And I love taking one of my girls along w/ me antiquing/thrifting...I love to see them get excited about the treasures they find for our home!

Take Care!
