Ideas for your home and life no matter how perfect or imperfect they may be.

First post- let's see how this goes. . . 

Ok, Gina from one of my fav blogs The Shabby Chic Cottage (who I happened to have met yesterday in Nashville) inspired me and told me how easy it was to do this. Well Gina this is for you! By the way check out her blog and her etsy store she is fab. I bought two beautiful ruffle hand towels  (photos to come) in Nashville at the Artsy Chicks show.
The whole idea of my blog is to keep me inspired to continue to with not only finishing my home improvements but to give you a glimpse of my journey. I do have some before shots of the big outside project which is almost complete. We had to install all new windows and siding. Well those that know me know I can't do it the normal way I have to tear our old bay window and sliding doors (UGH!) and replace with windows. So needless to say we have some painting on the inside to do now. I am happy with the results. Now if I can get the balance of my shutters and the hardware and have them installed I will be finished with the installation. YEAH!
I have decided that I am going to have to call a professional painter to come in and paint since there is so much to paint, that is my first phone call tomorrow. I will be doing the accessories and finishing touches. I will be posting pics and instructions if you are interested in any of my projects.
I am hoping that you will enjoy my blog and that you can help and hold me accountable to get this house in order and call me out when you feel I am going off course. That happens alot when you have 3 dogs, 2 cats, a 20 year old son home for the summer and a husband that is not helpful at all.  I am woman I can do all. . . LOL!
