Mirror Image

While at Marshells the other day I found two chandelier decals on clearance. They were cute so I picked them up. I didn't want to put it on the wall so I attached one to an old mirror I had.
Love how it turned out, what do you think?

Congratulations Varsity Field Hockey!

Here are the senior girls, today was their last official game. The had a great run and were Champions in their division this year!

We were up at 4:30 am to make the team breakfast before they went out to play their sectional game. Unfortunately they lost but they had a GREAT year. I am so proud of Kimberly and the team! After six years of watching Field Hockey it has come to an end. I still don't understand the game, LOL

Stairway

Remember the paper treatment I did at my space in The Shops at 25 West? Well I LOVED it so much I decided to do it in my home too. I chose the stairway as I just wanted it to be an accent wall. It isn't finished as you can see in the picture but it looks great already. Over the paper I hung my favorite frames that I white washed. I hung a candelabra as well to add to the look.
I was difficult to get a good picture. My house is divided, my two daughters think it looks good. My son questions my choice and my husband only said I hope this isn't permanent, you aren't gluing it are you?
I will share the final "look" with you when it is all done. Have you done anything outragous in your home latley and LOVE how it turned out?

I'm Here!

I am still alive! As I mentioned before my camera died, I feel so lost without it. Anyone know if you can have a camera repaired? Is there a camera repairman?? I dug out my old camera and took a bunch of pictures, couldn't find the cord to plug it in to the computer and I lost the camera. Just my luck! I did find it and next I will find that cord!

I haven't been creating too much things have been very busy! Tonight is Kimberly's last regular season Field Hockey game. Her team is undefeated in the league! They are playing amazingly this year! Sectionals are next but it won't be two to three games a week! In addition to Field Hockey my son plays football so add one game a week for that. Tomorrow is he last game and if they win they will also be undefeated! GO BOMBERS! One good thing is he plays JV so no playoffs. I am ready to have time to paint and create at night again and NOT eat dinner at 9 o'clock.

I will be back soon with some pictures I promise! This Saturday is the annual open house at The Shops at 25 West. Stop by for some food, door prizes and a demonstration! Hope to see you there!

Estate Sales

I picked up these two pieces of furniture that were left over from an estate sale. It feels strange going through someones things after they are deceased. All their belongings spread out for people to pick through. I guess it makes me feel better that I am giving them new life. I really loved this chair and new it could be great.
This cute table was in the basement covered in cobwebs!
I picked up a sheet from Salvation Army for $1.00 that worked wonderfully to recover the cushion.
The table is just darling now with a stained top and white legs. I actually think these pieces go together quite well.
Sorry for the poor pictures my camera is still acting up, I may have to break down and buy a new one. I did dig out my old camera but of course I can't find the cord to load the pictures on the computer so I am stuck using my phone.

Perfect Fall Day

We ventured out to see the Salmon River Falls. WOW is all I could say. Apparently normally it is just a trickle of eater going over the falls.
Not today, look at all that water. We have had a lot of rain so I guess this is the result.


After words we went to the apple orchard.

Ventured into a corn maze
It was a perfect fall day yesterday!
