Please Pray for Those In Need, MIL is Without Power in Huntsville

Today my MIL is still without Power and not sure when it will be turned back on. Most of our family is there in the Huntsville area and spread out from there.

The pictures show devastation.

Please pray for those in need and Pray for many families that have lost loved ones.

We are very lucky as everyone in our Family is fine, safe and sound but in the dark.

Pictures Hung on Stairs and a Few Easter Decorations

Good Friday!
This is the only Easter I have right now because most of my Holiday decorations are still in OH at the Farmhouse. Love how this table has come together, those books under our picture are from my Dad when he was in Elem. School. 
We are going to try a new Church here close to us on Sunday morning and then come home to a nice Ham dinner. I have set up 3 small Easter Baskets for the kids that they will find on the kitchen table when they wake up in the morning. Nice easy Easter Weekend!

Today after watching HGTV and acouple cups of coffee I hung these pictures on the stairs. I think the arrangement turned out cute, I hand-stitched "The Graves est. 1997" in the black frame last year.

Still lots to do but the pictures really make a statement when you enter via the front door.

Have a Very Happy Easter Weekend!

All The Better to See You With

OLD~Simple gold frame glasses about 6 years old, really time for a change (and on the plus side my eyes haven't changed that much)!

NEW~Very nice, again simple black frames that make my eyes really *pop*

I also got a new haircut, layered around the face. I love how nice it looks and I still kept my length.

A night shot of my Fav. Rooster lamp, I'm thinking of maybe changing the shade to a linen/burlap one.

I hope you have a Great rest of the week!

Decorating the Living Room Wall...HELP!!

Hello! How are you doing? It's almost FRIDAY!!!

I have this huge wall that I want to do something with this weekend but I need your help!

Do I pretend that it's 2 separate  walls since that clock isn't moving or just pretend clock is not there?

Roosters and Sunflowers

Some Country French Updates in the kitchen are Happening...SMILES!!!!!

We have been busy here meshing 2 households into one since Mom returned with the rest of her stuff from OH this past week. Moving items and taking tons to our local Goodwill.  Slowly the house is getting that *Homey* feel to it but I tell ya it's slow going here..lol..

We found this Cherry wood desk for Richard at a local used furniture store here and after some Pledge, she shines real nice! Now I'm not happy with the use of bar stools and those awful lamps but in due time we will find the right piece of furniture to hide his excess computers. 


We have been loving the pool here and since it's nasty in OH each weekend here feels like a vacation!!..It will be awhile before it sinks in that this is home now..lol..

In the afternoons while it's *baking* outside we watch our fav. shows...don't remember what they were watching here but they were glued to their seats the whole time..lol..

We spent so much on this Living Room set in OH..It fit perfect into our Farmhouse but here in FL..Not so Much..What do you think, keep it as is or cheap slip covers?  New furniture right now is NOT in our budget :(
