Our den and a little give a way!

BIENVENUE! Welcome... Thank yall so much for the sweet comments about Trigger.
We have a lot of pictures so I will keep my chit chat short ,your welcome...

This is what my mantel looks like today... an old tin and a nest...simple!

Every room needs a focal point..This is it!

Very simple. A mantel is one of the hardest things to get right. We play and play with it and it never seems to be the way we want it. I think we try to over do... just keeping it simple works for me... Holiday's... different story!

A good view...

This is a small hallway leading to the kids bedrooms and bathroom. I made this by stuffing some flowers in a tin...

My wall of family pictures. This wall will change very soon because Im fixing to add a huge family picture on canvas. Misty (friend that was just here) is a great photographer. She informed me that my pictures were not the right size to hang on a wall. That will be another post .. Lots of great info to share with yall on pictures...stayed tuned for that!

Got to have a little fluer de lis going on..knobs..love em'

Having company meant moving some stuff around..

I had to move my foyer table in here behind the couch so we could put up a tent. I kinda like the table being in here...

Can you tell what sweetie girl is mine? Yes.. thats her making the funny face to the right... Dont know where she gets that from.

Me... ok maybe thats where she gets it, smile

I just wanted to say thank you for induring this long tour... Thank you so much! On to the give a way..

Remember that cage? No you cant have it but you sure can have one sweet rooster...

He is huge!

yes, you get Mr. Rosster and some extras in that awesome bag..

I know it's what yall have been waiting for...

All you have to do is just leave me a comment...It's that easy! I will be working my little fingers to the bone making some more tassels for yall to see. Yes, more pumpkins too! Friday I will show you all of my neat new stuff and have a winner . So from now till Friday comment your little heart out and shop for that special tassel you have been waiting on... that is unless you win it! It's been fun! Susie H~

Our Loss....


This morning was my last full day with my company. I knew that I had to Jam pack a bunch of visiting in between 5 little girls... One had fever and was a bit fussy. Our last day was to be spent in laughter and fun...
As I made my way outside to enjoy a few seconds of peace and quiet I noticed something not so right...

This sweet adorable puppy that we all fell in love with 6 months ago was not alright...

I saw him in the backyard and I knew it was bad.. He didnt jump with joy when I called out his name. No tail wagging.... just still... I couldnt walk any closer

All I could do was yell for my neighbor and ran inside. It so happens that my friend visiting was a vet tech before becoming a mommie to 4. She ran outside to help my neighbor.... I stayed inside shaking like a big coward all the while trying to play it cool in front of all the girls... It was too late... He was gone...
Maybe it was good having a house full today. It will be empty first thing in the morning.... I wanted a better post for yall, sorry. In the real world this stuff happens... Trigger will be missed dearly.

Master Bath...


Isnt it fun to peek in someones bathroom... I love bathrooms! Is that weird?

Now you can say that you have been in mine..

I made this... just stuck it right in there... no glue..

As you walk in my bath right behind the door is the shower. One day soon I will have this taken out and a new one done.. With pretty tile... cant wait!

This is right by my tub... I love the light that it lets in

it also has this neat ledge that I put stuff on. I do put pictures in everyroom!

This jar came from TJMaxx.. it holds my bath bubbles..

Looks even better with a tassel!

my sink...

We changed out the ugly mirror and put this one in. I got this one from Kirklands.

I made this Flure De Lis with wire...I think every room should have a little lamp. Dont you...

Another picture...

Thought you may want to see me and hunny... a few years back when we were in Jamica... did you check out that hair on me!...

What bath tour is complete without a peek at the paper...Do you roll over or under?

I had this tall wall with nothing behind the "seat"...

Fixed that for dollars.... scrapbook paper rocks!

Never enough cabinets

The closet door... I guess you thought I would take you in there... Trust me. It's the black hole... If you go in you may never come back out... I would like to see you again, smile....

My Room..

**Update** just wanted yall to know that Im reading and loving all the comments on my very boring bedroom (sorry)...I will get back with each and every one of you as soon as I can. Your sweet thoughts mean alot to me.... Im off enjoying my best friend and her adorable girls at the momment. Cant wait to show yall what we did last night.... So enjoy ..and I will chaat with yall soon...


Ok ladies here is my bedroom.... It's not at all the grand master suite I wished for but it's always the last on my list to do... you know how that is!

Here are the famous plates on the wall idea that everyone has... All of mine came from the great decor store...Goodwill!

Here is my side table that holds some stuff

I always have trouble finding a spare place to put these pictures

Know what this is? years ago it would be used for a nightime wee wee. It belonged to my MawMaw. I just use it to put my empty popcorn bag late at night cause Im too lazy to get back up and go to the trash...

Guess another shot of those pictures... How did this picture get in here?

This is my little wall of my babies....

I use these to store more junk... guess you can say I've got junk in my trunk..Ok now I have lost it... days with all them girls under the age of 9.... whewwww

Is this one big honken knob! It's the knob to my desk.. Love it!

I found this picture frame at Hobby Lobby....cheap...


I added some cork board... and there you go!

Here is a lamp I found at a garage sale..four dollars.

Wish I had a great desk to show you but it's just an old one that a friend gave to me and I painted black...added that big honken knob and make due....poor ole me...smiles... I spend a lot of time at that ole desk I might add... ugly or not!

If you havent seen enough pictures of the day... Here's Kaylee

Isnt she cute!.... Next stop.. the bathroom...see ya there!
