I am SO Grateful

to susan and her tuesday class!
because you wanted a tour, i was encouraged to finish up a lot of projects that have been put aside, organize my cupboards and clean like i haven't cleaned in way too long!
i have to admit, when i found out you all wanted to come over, i was really nervous and i felt like it wouldn't be worth your while.
you were all so sweet and i am so glad you came!
if your in the area, stop on by (you'll never see it this clean again...)
and for the rest of you,
i'll welcome you in now...

walk this way into the living room.

i've got my 'summer' decor up,
although my 4th of july bin is missing...
my favorite part of the house is the fireplace.
i love the used brick.
next, i'll take you into my sewing room.
i've been hard at work in here.

here's the project that bob was working on.
it started out as a shelving unit and it's now a cupboard.

and that blank wall behind my long arm,now it's full of my favorite photos and a design wall that bob put together for me.

here's the cute curtains that jill made. what a difference some fabric makes!

this was a beat up old window that we turned into a chalk board/message board.

and you gotta love ribbon storage!

if you come on down the hall, i'll show you another project we finished up.

and this is the boys room

i found this milk bucket at a flea market for $5. yeah!

we'll pass on the girls room, and go on in to my room.

and let's not forget the bathroom that recently got a makeover.

again, thanks so much for coming by...

come back in a little bit, the little princess and her friends are coming for tea!
