Yet another gorgeous post...

Your home is so, so, so beautifully decorated. That I can't help but comment on every post. Oh I know, comments rock. But then I wonder if some bloggers don't like to get too many comments, from the same blogger...? ?????

Anyway, thank you for the lovely photos and for the great idea on how-to-do-over-a-lamp-shade!



I so love everything you do!


I think it is necessary to take time for ourselves to rest and recover, like your Whammy summer. I love the process of looking at what we have and re-imagining it. I think it makes those improved items more special. Not to mention the satisfaction of recycling rather than purchasing. I've put my redecorated guest room together with only 1 purchase, plus a gallon of paint. Gads, I have so much unused stuff, still, after a year of serious donating. No need to shop! Well, you know, except for craft supplies.


Looks great, Karla. I admire your upholstery skills. Not my ability. But boy, you can really save money -- and make a whole new space!

This room is so cozy and comfy! I love all the blended colors and the lampshade is gorgeous! All things become more beautiful when they tell a story! Thank you for sharing your talents!

Your discovery of that "dumpster of gold" makes you wonder why people wouldn't take their re-usables to Goodwill!

Love your lampshade! How great that you found some 25-cent lace appliques!!! I'm afraid I would've been tossing those lovelies into my basket by the dozen. Ha! Oh, and I actually have a couple of lampshades in my living room that I just plunked some elastic-waisted Goodwill skirts over, and I love 'em.

Thanks so much for sharing some of your re-do magic with us. It is so much fun to see and gives us a few ideas as well!
