Creating a Home

Hello my friends!
The weeks pass so quickly don't they? Cannot believe next week is Thanksgiving already..are you ready? I am looking forward to slowing down a bit and spending some time with my family. I am hosting this year and going out of town so it should be a fast and furious holiday.
Ready or not here they come!

Have I mentioned before, that on occasion I get to decorate homes for some pretty great people. No, I am not a professional but I have a love and desire to make things more beautiful so as the Lord provides me with new clients I get the chance to transform some pretty great spaces from a house to a home. This is a work in progress because its a new home and I am doing every room from scratch. 

Ready to see some pics?
(No befores, sorry)

Living Room

Hall Bath

Baby Room

Isn't this room adorable?! My favorite!
I have more of this beautiful home and still have many rooms to work on after Thanksgiving. I love my job!

I hope your Thanksgiving is blessed with many wonderful memories and many things to be thankful for.
 Many blessings my friends.

Barn Sale Pics

Hey friends!
Sorry I have been slow to post these days. I have been resting and recouping after the sale and my creative juju just seems to be at a stand still for now. 
Maybe its the fact that I am tired and have a few new things on my plate or the anticipation of getting things ready for the holidays coming up. Either way its been nice to just relax for a week. 

The Barn Sale of 2012 was a huge success and I heard about 2000 people made their way through the doors last weekend. It was great to see so many old faces and even greater to meet new ones. I enjoy this show every year and look forward to another great show in 2013!

Here are a few pics of my space..
(I apologize for not getting other peoples spaces photographed. I'm never sure how others feel about that so I tend to play it safe..I should have asked.)

A special thanks to everyone who came by to see me, follows my blog and made a purchase. You all truly blessed me!
To God be the Glory!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Christmas Sewing Box

Hey friends!

I should be in bed right now, the first day of the Barn Sale starts tomorrow and I am so looking forward to visiting with friends and meeting fellow bloggers. It's my favorite part of the show!

I wanted to share something I made that I am taking with me.  I picked up these old sewing machine boxes at a yard sale and sold a few "as is" but with these three I wanted to create something pretty for Christmas. Yes, I said Christmas!

I started with the sewing box..duh..added some floral styrofoam and just starting sticking in Christmas picks. 

I didn't take pictures of every step (sorry) but this is where you can get creative.

Most of my picks were found at Hobby Lobby. Some of the ornaments are from Target clearance last year. 

I am looking forward to visiting with many old friends and meeting new ones. 
Off to bed now! Its gonna be a busy day..

Have a beautiful weekend!
