What’s Up!! :)


Hello Everyone,

How is everyone’s week going so far??

Mine…. Not as good as last week!

But lets face it, last week was hard to top!

All 3 pieces of my furniture came in AND

I won 2 Giveaways!!!

The fist one I won was from Debra (Olde Saltbox Scents).  I won a 2 oz. bottle of her Spring at Plymouth room spray.  And let me tell you… it smells FABULOUS!!

Thank you so much Debra!!

Then I won one of P.H.A.T.T. 's items!!

I was the lucky winner of Sharon Steven’s (Mustard Seed Originals) patterns.

It is a fabulous George and Abe make-do pattern!!

Cant wait to make them for my Americana bedroom.

Thank you so much Sharon and PHATT for hosting this giveaway.

Speaking of my Americana bedroom…

I did some tweaking in here.

The desk you may have noticed in my new living room was in my bedroom.

So I needed fill in the space left from it.

I moved in my new antique corner chair and an antique noodle drying rack to replace the desk.

I had to fill the space in between my windows where my old wooden baby cradle was.  Since the cradle is now also sitting in my living room.

Here are some before and after photos of my bedroom.

Thursday, after my daughter gets out of school, we are heading to Gatlinburg, TN. for the weekend.

I really hope the weather is good for it.

She is wanting to go to Dollywood.

So please send out a little prayer for her.  With our busy schedule, she hasn't got to go on a “real” vacation in years.

This trip is pretty much all for her….

Hubby and I are going along to be the Taxi service!! LOL!!

We are letting her bring along her BFF, Natalie.

They both seem really excited about it.

My other 2 children aren't going.  They are ages 22 and 19, they have work and neither can get the time off.  :(

We also have to travel through Nashville to get to Gatlinburg.  I'm not sure how that is going to work. ??

Because of the flooding they have had and all the damage, we worry about the roads.  Hubby said he was going to call the TN State Police and make sure the interstate is even open. And if not, what routes we need to take to travel through.

Any way…. I will check in with everyone on Monday and let you know how the trip went.  I will try to remember to take my camera along with us. :)

Better head off for now.  I still have a lot to get done before we leave.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me.

Until Next Time….

Take Care Everyone!!

Tam
