No Rest for the Weary

As I was cursing complaining yesterday while installing the light fixture in the laundry room, I told Mr. Happy that I DONE with projects!! Here it is a scant 12 hours later...

Isn't this a lovely fabric for relaxed roman shades for the dining room? At least I won't be sewing them. I just have to install them when they are done.

It jumped right off the page and hit me between the eyes! I've been searching for fabric since July! I'm working with a lovely lady out of Cincinnati and I'm so excited to finally get this under way!!

Onward!

Laundry Room ORC Finale!

Finally finished!! YAY!! I honestly didn't think I'd get it done! We were at cross Country Regionals yesterday in Alachua, FL and were gone most of the day. But managed to pull it together this morning! I did not get the light fixture I wanted but I made due and at $12.99, I really can't complain!














Please check out all those who participated in the ORC at Linda's blog Calling It Home! There are some fabulous makeovers!

I even chose a fun color, Denim.

Also looking at this bag from JCrew...

They will emboss my initials on it in gold. What southern girl wouldn't love that?! It's also on sale...even better!

Laundry Room ORC Week 5 (Almost Done!)

Bought these cute little baskets at the Country Living Fair last weekend in Atlanta for my wrapping center. The only drawback - tetanus shot will be needed before entering the laundry room! LOL!



Billy Bookcase went up as did the ironing board!

I also got the shelve above the washer and dryer up, but will save that for the big reveal next week!

I still have to decide what to do about the light fixture...

Hope everyone had a spooktacular halloween!

Halloween Treats

A few weeks ago I ordered some goodies including the ghost cookie cutter from Jenny Hobick's Everyday Occasions. Hopefully, tonight, while Matt is carving the pumpkin, I can start on cookies for the office. With our travels, cross country meets and the ORC, there just hasn't been a whole lot of time for Halloween Treat Prep! Below are some beautiful pictures from Jenny's website. Please check it out here!





Happy Halloween!

I'm heading up Atlanta this weekend for a little grand baby time! And hopefully I will find Fall along the way! Below is a picture of the start of the wrapping center.

OOTD and My Updated List

So far I've been doing great with my Fall and Winter List! Here are a few adjustments:

I added my Camo Pants to the Casual Bottoms which brought the list to 22. THey were in the wash when I was making my list and not in the closet. I added my red quilted vest from Talbot's to the Sweaters' List for a Total of 61 items. Also my Brown Corduroy Skirt is actual Dark Green. And I switched out the Bright Blue Tops on the Casual lists so that was an even swap. Another change I made was the Lucky Brand Jeans. I swapped them out for a pair of ankle jeans from Talbot's that fit me much better. The Lucky jeans were just too big, I didn't want to spend the $$ to have them altered. Hopefully, someone at shopping at Goodwill will be blessed with them. I'm wearing the Talbot's jeans today along with the cable-knit sweater, Banana Republic No-Iron White Shirt, Tory Burch flats and a Reversible C Wonder belt.



Notice my fan in the background? Yep, that baby stays on high all night long!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
