From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

Chippy White

Hello Friends --
Just a few days ago we were enjoying a beautiful Autumn season with green and red leaves brightly coloring our back yards. See these .... I just brought some branches in to decorate my table.

The Flood

Greetings and Salutations!
My man and I have been having a week! Let me tell you about it. Our township mandated a change in the way our wash water disposes to the outside. So my husband did research and carefully made the necessary changes. As a result of $$$ and time spent making these changes, our washing machine dumped three loads of dirty water into our carpeted basement.

It still STINKS really bad.The professional carpet cleaners we called advised us not to use their services until the smell is gone. The smell means the carpet is still wet underneath and the shampooing will not solve that issue. So...we wait.
The blessing in all this was that I got a new sink downstairs. I have always wanted a bathroom downstairs, and so now I am halfway there! It's exciting for us to be in our craft/laundry room and get all messy and then just take a few steps and wash up at the sink.

The funny thing was, we BOTH forgot our 8th wedding anniversary Tuesday when this all happened. We remembered the next day and had a good laugh.
Hope your week has been a little less "adventurous!"

Stay dry ......

White & Lovely Things

I love White! Can never get enough of white. It hasn't been until the last year or so that I realized how much I love the wonderful shades of white. With just the right textures and wood finishes and lovely vintage materials, white comes alive.

Just look at this white vintage bowl against the fresh woodsy farm table. Nice.

October Greetings Everyone! 

I am just so thankful for the glorious 70 degree weather we have been having these last few days. I could live the rest of my days like this!
I told you the last time we chatted the my husband and I were going on a little date to see the new movie Courageous. My husband warned that I would need a few tissues. He even brought some for us. I do not consider myself to be very emotional, but this movie really proved me wrong. If you are anything like me, you will need more than a couple tissues! BRING THE WHOLE BOX! This is the fourth movie that this church has produced and it really shows the experience they have gained. It is an excellent movie for both men and women, but is definitely highly recommended for men. You will laugh. You will cry. You will be angry. You will cry. You will be happy. You will cry.
I plan to buy it when it comes out. It's that good.

Hope you are enjoying Autumn where you are!
