Feeling better

Greetings Everyone!  I hope this post finds all of you doing well.  Today we woke up to wind and rain.  I love it!  The temperatures are really unreal - 60* - on the 15th of December??  Not sure what that is all about.  My winter clothes and jackets wait patiently in my closet...

The Dh and I finished up the computer room.  Now it's really the Marine Corps room.  We hung up our awards from 20 years of service and it's officially an "I Love Me" room.  It looks pretty good and I must admit the color I picked for the walls is really nice.  The next room to paint is the master bathroom.  I've decided to go with a muave/lavendar shade.  I can't recall the name of it, but it's soothing and relaxing.  I'll use that on the biggest part of the master bath - around the garden tub and shower area and then a little darker shade where the toilet and shelves are.  I can't wait to put a fresh coat of paint on the master bath.  The previous owners hadn't painted it in the 11 years they lived there.  How does one do that??  I just don't know.  Dingy doesn't quite describe how awful they look.  A bathroom is supposed to be "fresh" and feel "clean" - not dingy and dirty. 

The tree is in the house and amazingly our cat, Hooters, doesn't seem to be too interested in it.  She had fun smelling it and laying under it last night when we first brought it in, but since then she just walks right by it.  We were both sure she would climb it.  Tonight we will pull out the decorations and get them up.  Here is our lovely tree!  It smells amazing!

Here is a pic of the scarf I finished up for my daughter.  She works at The Dry Bar and their colors are gray, yellow and black.  Not sure if you can tell from this pic, but there are two shades of gray.  It's kind of funky but I think she of all people can do something with it.  She has to wear gray, yellow, white and black to work so I thought this might be a fun addition to her winter wardrobe.  If not - she can give it to a coworker. 

My cousin showed me how to make these frilly scarves during the craft show.  My Mom claimed this one right off to match her gray vest.  My neice saw it and now wants one in black & red - her school colors.  I'm having fun with them.

My next project is to crochet snowflakes in yellow and sew on to a gray scarf for my daughter.  All before Christmas!!

  1. I am glad you are feeling better. I love fresh trees! We have a fake one. I love painting my house. I painted all of the rooms when we moved in and I'm slowly repainting now to different colors. If you look at my old posts, right after I started on blogger, you will see pictures of my eldest daughter's room. I need to redo the main bath, my youngest daughter's room and my room. One at a time! Have a great day!

  2. I cant see your photos when I have read your blog post. Shame, I was looking forward to seeing them love Anne

  3. Bummer, what happened to my pics??? I'll see if I can get them to show in today's post.
