A few years of dreaming.......

 ......is now all mine!
 I have had this idea in my head for a few years now & after having a corner downstairs for my sewing machine & then another corner in this bedroom upstairs & then 2 corners of this room I finally claimed the whole room for me.
 The daybed is now downstairs which gave me room to make my craft/sewing table bigger.  It was a quick fix making a new top.  Popster cut down one of the old closet doors I had to sweet talk a guy in L*wes to cut a piece of laminate the right size for the top.  I just had to paint the edges white.
 See how pretty the floor is now.





  The bulletin board is now my brain so I can put all the things I "dream up"  on it & hopefully unclutter my  head.....that will never happen but it's worth a try.  The curtain rod was something I found on pinterest.
I an loving my new space which I waited for for so long.  Only problem I'm on the short end of my winter hiatus so don't have long to enjoy it!

Love

    1. The big bolt (which I may add I bought several years ago) is going to become new valances for the living room! The other machine is a serger which does a great job on finishing seams as well as a slew of other things I haven't learned yet. Did you notice LiLi's sewing machine tucked underneath?

  2. I did now. I think LiLi's is the same as mine. No really! Serger, that's it, they are clever pieces of kit...not that I would know.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
