Happy Place.

For the next few days I will have a glue gun attached to my right hand and silver glitter letters stuck to strange places on my clothing as I plow my way through Homecoming Mum season.  If you don't hear back from me by Monday, the authorities should be contacted.  They might find me in a cocoon of ribbons, paw prints, zebra stripes, cow bells, balloon string, glitter stickers and hot glue webs.  For those of you that do not live in Texas or Oklahoma, a homecoming mum is worn at a special homecoming football game.  It is a large fake chrysanthemum with loads of ribbons, trinkets and bells, plus the name of the mum owner and their boyfriend's name as well. The bigger, the better.  Even the boys wear them on their arms. 
 Click here to see some I made years back.
I will go to my happy place in my mind, while I listen to my favorite Pandora stations.  Here is a picture of one of the Happy Places I will visit. 
Enjoy, Heidi

Porch Details

What makes a porch interesting?    
I would have to say for me it would be, corbels, shutters, foliage and lanterns.
Here are a few to ponder.
 Enjoy, Heidi

Laundry Day.

Laundry Day is more like Laundry Week, or 2 days a month, I don't do laundry. 
 Perhaps I could convert my family to nudists?
Or maybe it is time for a laundry room make-over.
Enjoy, Heidi

Timeless Kitchens

The older I get, the more I appreciate older pieces.  Never have been too trendy, classic has always been my style.  Now, timeless is what I look for.  When you can't tell if it was made last year or 300 years ago.  It will continue to look good and be in your life for a very long time, instead of being another item in your garage sale.
 Enjoy, Heidi

Stopping for directions, need to get back on the road to enlightenment.

I have been on this journey and now I think I'm lost.  The map is not as clear and it is really old.  
These dang Desires keep getting in my way and push me of course.

Amazing Before and After

This country cottage found in Mississippi looks the picture of perfection.  
You will not believe what it looked like before the new owners bought it.
All images on this post are from Country Living Magazine.


The whole structure had to be lifted into the air in order to install the foundation, plumbing, and insulation.
The 2 chimneys were rebuilt and the owners hand-crimped the metal roof.  I am impressed.
