Ok ok its only MY house in my rich fantasy life. But can you blame a girl?! Look at this little dreamy thing. It's perfect. I wish I was the friend of the gal who owns it.........I could peek inside! I am sure that the lucky lady who lives there has a twenty inch waist, cooks like Martha Stewart AND Rachel Ray, has a weedless garden , gets ALL the great deals at the fleamarket before you get there, entertains EVERY evening and a hubby that looks like Huge Jackman from the film Australia. Now that I really think about it....I dont think I like her at all.

My handsome little man is 16 today ! Oh my heart aches..with sadness and pride. I miss my baby boy playing with his butt ball (football for a one year old) never leaving home with out his action figures ,and flushing my nice jewelry down the toilet. I miss it all. But now look at my wonderful handsome man...with the kindest nature and the biggest heart. He is my movie buddy....but most of all....He is my heart! I have to say it one more time.......Happy Birthday poohbear!

Ok I am loving everything right now! As long as is blending with my style, my version of shabby Chic. Or is it Cottage Chic or French chic now? Oh who knows really I just love it all. I found this frame a while back for only two dollars at a sale. It is pretty big. I actually got it to go with the tall, skinny dresser, with nice deep drawers. that I bought ,for only fifteen dollars at a local thrift store. I painted it the same shade of blue and put little crystal knobs on it. So cute ! It sets me in motion with all kinds of projects too. Now I have three tables to paint and five other frames! Oh and some baskets. Now if I could only learn to make those wonderful little liners for them, all covered in roses. In time.
I love painting stuff and seeing that finished product. It can be SO rewarding when it turns out just right. When it doesn't...sell it. lol. Or trade if off. I have mentioned my obsession of linens to. Well I found these cuties at the local flea market. It has been so long since I have been...I am having withdraws. Oh the pretty things I have missed! The little white dresser was a fifteen dollar purchase, and brown at the time. Cant have that! Must be painted. I bet I say that in my sleep.......

I have been doing some much needed "spring cleaning". Yeah I know I am a bit late for that, but better late than never I say! I t can be really great too, especially when you have as much stuff as I do laying around. I was diging through some boxes and found all these goodies. Can you believe I had them put away!? Some many pretties to be made with all those sparkled jewels. Annabelle let out a huge gasp and started claiming all the rings. They are all gone now. lol. Oh well I have enough left to make some great earrings. Another project ! Yeah and I didnt have any of those either..?! Hmmm. I also found in the same box a beautiful spode plate with a lion on it. So cute. A chip on the side but those things dont bother me. If I love it..well I just love it. Flaws and everything. I cant wait to get it hung on the wall.
I swapped out my sister loads of stuff for a coupl of paintings so I have been making room for those things too. I dont know why I let my house get so cluttered? It is such a spectacular feeling when it is clean ! I feel like actually asking people to come over! lol. I bet if I cleaned out the garage.... it would be like Christmas ....all the things I forgot I had! Hmm maybe next week....
