Still Here

Thursday, November 21, 2013

In case you were wondering, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.  The truth is I've been blessed with an abundance of work and between that and keeping my booth stocked and still being a wife and Mommy and enjoying our sweet new grandbaby its been a little tough to find the time to blog.  I'm also feeling a little spent after the One Room Challenge .  Oh, it was all good and I'm beyond excited to have my kitchen all zhushed up but it kind of zapped my energy.  Speaking of the One Room Challenge, thank you so much for all of your kind comments and emails.  Those last few weeks were tough and your encouragement meant the world to me.

So, how about I give you a quick round up on what's new in my world.

First of all, this little guy is such a bright spot in my life.  At almost 4 months, he's in that sweet spot where the smiles come easily and he's happy most of the time.  What a blessing!!

And there have been (more than) a few purchases.

I'm currently having an inner debate about whether to paint these or not.  On one hand, they're in great shape.  On the other hand, well, red lacquer. These will most likely make an appearance in my living room at The Dollhouse.

I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of this beauty from My Darling House.  I used to be into horses in a big way, and I've never seen a fox hunting themed painting in colors like these.  

Also, there has been some work-related progress a la this:


and decisions have been made regarding my living room and dining room makeovers here at the Dollhouse.  I'm excited to share that business soon.  I think it's going to be good!

So I leave you with my most sincere wishes for a wonderful upcoming Holiday season. Posting may be a little sporadic over the next few weeks, so I hope you'll check in on me now and again.

If you'd like more frequent updates, I'd love to have you follow me on Instagram!  Posting is quick and much more regular.  If you're not on Instagram, follow me on Facebook and/or Pinterest.

Hi Kim,
You have had a busy time! Congratulations on your adorable grandbaby! I can tell he is such a joy!

Wow the lavender headboard is fabulous!! LOve the fabric you used. Those chairs, what a find. I would be torn as well, I can see them in red lacquer, they do look really great the way they are though!
