I did manage to find 2 vintage table scarfs
One being hand crocheted It is a rectangle shape with
ecru thread on both ends and a pink in the center.
The other is an oldie on linen hand embroidered it needs to be cleaned it has the normal aging spots but nothing a little vinegar won't cure LOL

  1. I signed up for the newsletter!

  2. LOVE your giveaway! I am a follower and on your email list! My favorite colors for decorating are all earth tones - anitque whites, beiges, greens and browns and I brighten them up with seasonal colors and decorations. Good luck on your move!

  3. Hi, Brenda! So glad you like everything! I was always going to try to make one of those bags. But I knew I would find someone who could make use of it. Do you ever do that? Buy things with good intentions and never fulfill them? I gotta stick to what I am good at......
    I am a follower.
    I get the newsletter.
    I am posting on my sidebar.
    I am in love with rich, bold colors.
    My kitchen is FIREFOX red which to me is a deep cranberry color. I use mustardy yellow and black as accents. The room that connects mwith it is the great room--dining and living areas. It is called Earth which is a tan/gold color. I use all my other colors in there-maroon, navy, black, olive, brown. And for me these colors work for all seasons. I can change decor with my accents and display pieces. All my bedrooms have wallpaper that I chose over 20 years ago. ICK! I want to paint but Mike says--too much work to move all the stuff. He was working when we had the others painted--we paid someone to do it. Our bathrooms were both painted. The master in the same FIREFOX and the guest in a COLONIAL blue. Hope this is helpful to you.
    See you in the funny papers! LOL

I just found out yesterday when talking to the man who comes out to make any minor repairs that are needed that all of my walls are sheet rock *now this is not normal for a mobile home* they just put the veneer stick stuff over them to make the walls washable URGH LOL but that lets me know that in a couple of years maybe hubby won't growl when I say I am painting LOL!!! cabinets are not real wood but they are mdf board YEAH yet again I can paint them!! how did I find this out well they had to relocate our thermostat and there fore a piece of sheetrock needs to be replaced by them OH YEAH!!!!
    I want all the decorating ideas I can get thanks to Carol and her hubby of Firecracker Kid I have decided to find an old piece of furniture to redo for our TV??


  6. Sign me up! i'm a follower and subscriber to your newsletter. My home is a mixture of shades of red, yellow, and blue ( French-like ).
