Happy May Day!

It has been beautiful here the past week. The best kind of weather for painting… which I have been doing a lot of. I am happy to say that 98% of the paint part of the decorating projects I am working on are done.

Everything is coming together. I will post one of the most colorful projects with you this week. Hint – It is green and I used a sponge to paint it.

Eye candy for all home decor and architecture lovers.

Good to know when you can’t clean certain items in your home.


A fun way to serve salad.

This will be nice to serve for a gathering.

Fun & Interesting

This is one very clever and useful quilt!!! I love the ingenuity behind it!

  1. Another great post! I can’t wait to try the Asian salad. Please keep those recipes coming! Thank you for always helping me decide what’s for dinner.

  2. During Covid lockdown in 2020 I looked on Amazon for home dec fabric on a total whim. I was very happy to find exactly what I was looking for and at a pretty good price. I had a large wall in my spare bedroom that I wanted a big piece of art for. I made a large wooden frame and stretched the heavy fabric over it and secured it with my stapler.

  3. FYI…Amazon owns Much easier to search than if they might carry what you want. And if the item is also offered for sale on (most are), they provide a link to your Amazon Cart. If Prime member, shipping is free, regardless of price. (I currently have a Magnolia Home item that I found on…for recovering chair seats…awaiting purchase on Amazon. :) )

    Any update on changes you were making to your home’s entry and front of the house?

      Hi Cam – I didn’t know any of this. Thanks for taking the time to tell me. As far as the front entry – we still have plans to add a modern style railing, but many of our projects were put on hold when our granddaughter got sick and we we have been traveling out to Calif frequently. I hope to get it done soon as it really needs it added. I will post as soon as we get the project completed.
