I had a post all planned out for this week. I was going to tell you why I haven't made any progress on the telephone table then share what I did work on.

But this morning I woke up with what feels like the flu. I'll see a health care provider this afternoon but in the meantime, I'm laid out on the couch, coughing and feeling pretty yucky.

Bear with me as I strive to get better. You'll find me under the heap of blankets with a washcloth on my forehead.

See you later,


  1. Get well Cecilia! There's sure a lot of bad stuff going around.

    1. Thanks Stacey. Fortunately it's not the flu! Just a very nasty cold. Ugh.

  2. Feel better soon, Cecilia! Looking forward to seeing how you finished the telephone table! Take care and drink plenty of fluids!

  3. Boo! So sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. I'm so sorry to hear you're sick! I sure hope it isn't the flu. I'll keep you in my prayers. There has been so much sickness here lately...partially due to the pollen in the air or the constantly changing temperatures! I have been sick with a cold for 3 weeks. I went to the Dr and they assured me it would resolve itself, but I am so over it! We have been super busy after work getting some last minute things done for Miranda's visit home with her boyfriend. We pick them up Monday! So...illness, busyness, and exhaustion leads to no time to blog. I really want to share my pantry remodel too! Anywho, sorry so! I do pray you feel better soon. Take it easy and take advantage of having a good excuse to rest.

    Hugs, Vicky

  5. Hope you are up and about soon. Take care of yourself!

  6. Oh, icky! So sorry to hear you're under the weather. I hope Herbie and Buddy are treating you well! Get better soon!

  7. Oh no Cecilia!! I'm so sorry :(. So many people are sick. I was hoping to come here and see yet another one of your lovely projects! Please take care of yourself and above all, listen to your body. Lots of liquids!

    Geez, don't I sound like your mother??!

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Color Me Happy - Adding Color Back To The House

I've enjoyed our new colorful living room so much.
 The touches of red, green and blue really bring the room to life.

It made me realize that trying to do neutral wasn't me even though I love the look in other people's homes. Therefore, I have embarked on a mission to add color back into my house.

I already had the red pillows and red plaid placemats for the dining area. I also made the red plaid curtain this past year.  My wall is full of colorful pictures and art.

 I found the flowers on clearance at JoAnn's. Yay for clearance! It will be fun to have different colorful looks for the seasons.

For the kitchen, I decided to add colorful plates and what's more perfect than Fiestaware?  I have very fond memories of my mom's turquoise set especially the tea pitcher and salt & pepper shakers.

I knew there was a vendor at the Canton First Monday Trade Days that sold Fiestaware. I had bought a red pitcher a couple of years back. So in July, dinner plates came home…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…
