Playing Inside

When it's too hot to play outside, no problem. Just play inside!

Last week, I showed you a picture of my den.

Since then, I played a little with both sides of the fireplace. The tiki man to the right? Gone. I replaced him with a little rust.

As for that round table left of the fireplace? It's gone. I took the mirror down, too. I think it reads a little cleaner now. Don't fall in love with that rug (ha), I'm looking for something else.

It's not a lot of change, but it's fresh to me. Just goes to show that you can use stuff around your house to shake things up. The furthest I went shopping for these goodies was my Sanford and Son front yard. 011July1_Den 004

Next play day, I'll be working on that mantle.

Happy Happy!

Hello, Friends and July!

Howdy! A big thanks to those of you who have emailed, called, been in touch. I am good. The truth is...I miss y'all! I miss reading about you and your lives and kids and businesses and dreams. I guess you could say I have been quite busy with my life, kids, business and dreams. Here's a synopsis:

The Primitique
2011June4_The P 013

has officially been in Tipsy Tango
Tipsy Tango

for one month.

Meet Patty:

Just when I thought a door had closed, God opened one that I wasn't even looking for. Patty is a good thing. And I am so much enjoying sharing my business with her! If you haven't made it by yet, come on out. 116 W. Main St, Quinlan, TX, daily from 10a-5p.

As for children, our last hen, Opah, died.

My sister and I are officially out of the pet chicken business. We're a little sad.

I got together with some gals I went to high school with...
Cindy, Missy, Me

(Of course, that is a redneck chic pocketbook and vintage slip, along with a Rebekah Blocher necklace)

Several months back, David purchased 10 acres on which we plan to build our future home. We walked and marked an area where we wanted our pond. This week, the pond digger has been digging. It is sooooo exciting to see progress!

And now, for my decorator friends (and as a teaser) ((and as an incentive for me to blog again soon)), here is a picture that I took of my den last night.

I played a little today and this looks different already. I'll try to show you tomorrow. Stay tuned!

I sure do hope you are staying cool and you are enjoying your family, life & dreams!

Happy July, Friday, long weekend!
