How Do I Measure Up?

I don't know about you, but I can never seem to find my measuring tape when I need it.  I had 2, but they always seem to hide when I'm working on a project.  I've tried wearing one around my neck....but sure will sneak away.

But today, thanks to a quick stop at the thrift store, I shall never be at a loss for measuring again!  I found measuring tapes....lots of measuring tapes.  I shall put one in every drawer, in every room, in my car, in my purse and every nook and crannie I can think of!

Sometimes it just doesn't take much to make me happy!  What has made you happy today?

Where Bloggers Create.....My Reality

I really wanted to participate this year. I wanted my studio to look perfect.  I signed up......but forgot.   I'm not organized.  I'm a mess.  Oh well...............there's always next year.  In the meantime, this is my reality:

It'll get better.......I just know it will!

Saying Goodbye To My Red, White & Blue

I'm redecorating my guest room/Grandson's room, and I'm hoping to sell the antique cannonball,  3/4 rope bed.  I've had this bed over 25 was my son's first 'big boy' bed.  It's seen many different bedding combinations from cars and Sponge Bob, but I think the current one is my favorite.  I was going for the Ralph Lauren layered bedding which he does so brilliantly. (I never did finish the curtains...oh well!)  So now it's time for a change.  I have the ensemble listed on Craigslist, but no response so far.  I just think this would be perfect for another sweet little boy!

I just recently found these wonderful Ikea curtain panels at the thrift store.  The cotton fabric has an amazing weight and feel.

 My collection of vintage flags....I will keep these!

 I painted this back in the day.......not sure why I don't paint any more?

So, as I say good-bye to an old friend,  I am ready for the change. 
Here's a little 'sneak peak'.
