Remember This!


I forgot to show you the before picture at the unveiling of the dining room! I could have done anything to this poor thing and it would have looked better! (I would sometimes take old coloring book pictures and "re-do" them...I was careful not to hurt anyones I remember it anyway). This light has a beautiful center of glass. Say, we all have redeeming qualities!
I think I must love lighting. I have some beautiful little bedside tables and several chandeliers. (I will take pictures and post them soon). Some are old and some are new and some I was, yes WAS making. My husband gets very, very nervous with some of my projects. I try to reassure him. Then a few years down the road and THERE IT IS! My vision in a magazine!! Poor me. No not really "poor me". Look I have a pretty blue dining room with a not white ceiling. I had a pink couch for many years and I still have a cool, but now worn, chair I covered in three different types of fabrics- all with pink in them.
"Oh So Pretty"
Ok, I just lost my post, except for the above part which I saved MYSELF! We are supposed to have automatic saver now, it is not working for me. It saves every 1 min. Not working.
1) My preview button is not working
2) my automatic saver is not working
3) I have to type out all codes myself for links within my post...i do not have that beautiful green button that you just click, like
everyone else in this house
4) I also don't have spell check working right or italics that will work...whimpper, whimper

This is what Caitlin and I do when we have problems. We list it all out, number form to make sure it is clear. It just feels
better that way. Gets it all out. ohhh, whimper some more.
I had a whole list of nice things I was saying about all of you!
Ok..I think all of you are so kind and thoughtful and supportive! You have left me the sweetest and most kind comments. Oh yes! Thank you for leaving comments! There are many very funny writers out there!! A new Girl in town with a good funny bone is Katie. She is not just funny, she can write well also. Her Daughter is Raya of Paper Pony! And I give three Cheers to ArtsyMama (Kari), Jenny, and Teresa! Hip-Hip-Hooray!!! Kari helped me to meet many of you and she had extremely kind words for me, Jenny Is the SWEETEST and genuine person, and Teresa, who takes the time to meet new people to this blog world! A special Cheer to Rosanna (whom you can read more about at Jenny's place,March 3rd). She was my very first on line client!!! She is very sweet, kind and has a very good eye for all of the things we are making! Another special notice to Phyillis of Shabby In The City. She held a great Potluck Dinner and I met some more of you wonderful people!!! I am so happy to have met each and every one of you!!! And we all know that one connection leads to another... and there it is! We have met MORE creative and kind people!
Here is to ALL OF YOU!!! ( I would put it in iltaics if I could!!! hahaha)

I just found you blog, while looking at another. I really like you style. I think you did a fab. job on you light. It's great. Makes me thin what I may do with some lamps I have...
I just painted our bedroom a similar color to your dinning room. Everytime I walk in, I am so happy. Your room looks great.
