Duck Duck Goose


I created a vignette this morning with the last of the 4  prints that H gave me for Christmas.  

     I couldn't decide if she is a duck or a goose.     I did a little research and decided since her nostrils are closer to the top of her beak,   she is a duck.   Geese have nostrils closer to the end of their beak.    Geese honk and ducks quack,   but since he has been quiet as a church mouse,  I have to rely on the beak info...lol!

Farmhouse Style Kitchen


I couldn't see how my Farmhouse Style kitchen would be complete without the addition of a horse....do you?     H gave me 4 prints for Christmas and this is the third one you've seen....only 1 more to go!

Instant Counter Space in the Kitchen


I was looking for some new burner covers on Amazon the other day and ran across what is called  instant counter space.     I really liked the clean look of the piece that you set on top of your range.   Some of the ones on Amazon even doubled as sink covers and cutting boards.    Anyway,  the ones available weren't really a good fit for the style of my kitchen,   so I decided to design one myself.

Deep Cleaning the Kitchen


In addition to putting up a new back splash in the kitchen,    I have been doing what I call deep cleaning.     I like to move things out....clean under them.....clean them and start fresh.    Sometimes I move them back where they were and sometimes I don't.    In the case of this corner of the kitchen,  most of the things did not return to where they were....lol!

Winter Fireplace


I have most of my Christmas decor put away,  but I left out anything that looked wintery.  

After adding a few things to what was left on the fireplace after all the Christmas was packed away I came up with a "Winter" fireplace.

Christmas Vignettes


I finally found three live pink poinsettia's.      Since they are small plants,   I clustered them together on the top of the desk that sits right inside in front door.

Winter Wonderland


It's just a few days til Christmas and I haven't shared the Winter Wonderland that I created on one of the walls in the entry.....I'm really running behind this year.    The main reason that I am behind is because I haven't had my best helper....H!    I've really missed all his help....get well soon honey!

Christmas in the Formal Living/Dining Room



Our family living/dining room is decorated in casual shabby chic,   but the formal living/dining room has a very formal Victorian look.
  It is the first room on your left when you come into the entry.

Christmas Auction


We went to a big auction Saturday.     Tons of good stuff,   but we had to leave early because of a blizzard coming into Eastern New Mexico.

   I was able to get a couple of goodies before we left though!
