We have sold our house!   

Buckle up we are getting ready to build another one!

I’m planning on documenting our process, if you are interested in watching.  I’ll let you know the link soon.  As always, I value your opinions and ideas.  
Let’s get this party started!

Talk to you later...........Sally

My Bible Collection

I have started a small Bible collection.    

I have it displayed them in the master bedroom, on the dresser below the wall mounted television.
I'm hoping to expand my collection in time.
The large corbels I'm using I've had for a long time, I think they work well for bookends.
I love this close up picture of the dresser.

When I got married and moved out of my childhood home, the whole bedroom set, this dresser, a chest of drawers, and a full size bed was handed down to me.
The little brown marks on the top of the dresser are cigarette burns from my dad.

I'm sure when this accidentally happened my mother was not very happy about it!
Every time I look at or dust it, I think of him.  
The gold, "YOU ARE MY home," is my message to Large.
Because he is my home!

 Send me a message and let me know what you think.

Madison's Bedroom

I am doing a series of done rooms as they are done.
First I posted a blog on the dining room.
Second was the exit room.
Here is the third room in the series.

Madison's bedroom.
This is the view as you are coming down the hallway upstairs.

I was a little leery of the purple at first, but I love how it turned out.

The floors up stairs are all done in this wood.

The closet in this room is large.
Here is one side.

And here is the other.
Yes, she already has one box of clothes in her closet!

Her beautiful, but not fussy chandelier.

We painted the inside of her door in chalkboard paint.

Decorating The Dining Room

I have decorated the dining room for Independence Day!

Finally the part of the "new house project" that I love!

I just got these chairs, I think they are perfect in here.

What do you think?

I'm Back!!

I have still been decorating and putting our home together.
I'm having a great time doing it, I just don't have as much time to blog about it when I have changed something or done something new, as my job has changed and I am away from home 10 hours a day now.

I love decorating for seasons and holidays!
Large has been making crosses, boxes, shelves and other things out of barn wood that he and I gathered from a couple of different barns in the area.

Here is a shot of a couple of shelves that he made for me one afternoon.
I put them in the master bedroom.

I can't quite get them right.

 I am loving them anyway!!

It's nice to have a man who can look at a picture and build it for you!

Thanks Large!!

Decorating in the Dining Room

My dining room table is very simple right now,
 just four place mats with the fall colors in them,
 some amber moon and stars glass,
 brown and white transfer ware plates,
 a carved wooden bowl,
 a white pumpkin,
 and two cement artichokes.     

I took a couple more pictures of the table from different angles.


My pie safe is ready for the fall season.

This is what it looks like when the lights come on.

I have this little Halloween tree on the kids table.
They like to change it around.
The owl is an old vintage one, I put a string of lights in it to make the orange eyes glow.

I have kept it pretty simple in here for now,
 after Halloween,
 I'll be breaking out the Thanksgiving dishes!

Have you decorated yet??

Yes I've Been Decorating Again

I have all my fall decorating done!

I can't take a good picture, so I'm just going to show you these bad ones.  

I hope you don't mind.  

I am going to show you the family room first.  


My goat wagon filled with antlers, pumpkins, gourds, a small afghan and an old mirrored lampshade.

A closer shot of the goat wagon.

A crow and a couple of crow heads with some bittersweet, an apple pie candle, and a crock filled with candy corn.

I love the little witches hat with the peacock feathers!

Ha Ha!

 I caught Large in the background trying to figure out our new smoke detectors!! 

I snuck in another little mummy.

What do you think?

More later.......................Sally
