 And so it begins!!!!!!

October 25, 2012

Operation tile removal is in phase 1....Tim removed the little strip around the floorboards and 2 tiles are now removed.....We're going to be in a construction zone for a while...But I keep looking at the end result...
*********
On another note...I'm having some computer issues...Our computer keeps going out...Cable Co says its not on their end, but it is cutting out 1 or 2 times a day now...If Taylor isn't home to remedy it I am stuck with no computer....So, if you message me and it takes a couple days to get back to you then that is why...I hope Tim can figure out what the problem is and quick! :)
********
So, now I'm thinking the Fall decor is just more for me to move and it might be packed back up....Furniture is going to be moved this weekend and it's going to be a mess...I will take pics for you to journey along with us!

Until next time!

Hello friends! I wanted to pop in and let you know I'm having a worktable sale on my Simple Goodes selling blog...Usually I clean off my worktable after the first of the year or as it gets closer to the end of the year...But this year, I wanted to begin it earlier and get it cleared off for Christmas offerings...I like starting off with a fresh blog for a new year....I will be adding things in the following days, so please check back...I also only have 1 available for most items....I'm working on an order right now, but I will try to list some things every day for a few days....I also have marked some things down that are still on there, so scroll all the way back...Most have been marked down at least $10 or more....I figured this would be things i wouldn't have to pack up when we begin the demolition on the house in preparation for hard wood flooring...ha!ha! :)~

So, check back often...If things don't sell, then I will make them down some more...:)

Hi there! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday! I have been enjoying working in the house, doing some laundry, nursing the fur babies who had surgery yesterday, doing a bit of decorating, etc....I wanted to share these AWESOME candles I got back during the summer from QVC.....Yes, I'm a QVC watcher and sometimes customer....I wish I could show you these candles in action....They move and look just like a real flame....It is like having real candles going all the time...I have timers on the ones on the fireplace mantle...So every night at 7:39 on the dot they come on...As it gets darker earlier, I'm going to change them to come on at 5:30...And they move back and forth and you'd think you had real candles burning...So, as I arranged my table I just had to add one even though it is white...I'm thinking about staining it, but just haven't yet...In the winter months there is nothing cozier than candlelight don't you think? Even in the day time!

I went on QVC to find the link

Scroll down and click on the video and see for yourself....They have been a wonderful addition to my decor!


UPDATE~~Taylor showed me how to do a video...:) It doesn't show it the best, but i wanted to give you an idea of how it moves....Luke is in the background playing action figures...I will definitely videotape when he is not home next time....:) ha! And now that I know how to do a video I ask myself "why haven't I done this before?"...:)

 Good evening! Do you remember this table? It use to sit in my kitchen between the counter and the faux fireplace....Back in the summer I moved it in front of this window in the dining room....I have enjoyed adding a bit of Fall to it this week...Not sure how long it will be out...ha!ha! We have been looking at hardwood flooring and hope to get started after Upward soccer ends in a few weeks...(Tim is the director and is coaching Luke's team)...But first, all the ceramic tile has to come up....It will be a mess, but worth it in the end....We're also trying to decide whether we want to put carpet back in the sunk in living room or go ahead and put hardwood flooring in it also....I have already picked out my hardwood...It has knots, looks hand planed, and looks like it has been beat up a bit...Decisions...Decisions....But it's going to be BEAUTIFUL....Then I can make plans to stencil.....:)

What a BEAUTIFUL October morning even if it is chilly and cloudy today! I'm sooooo ok with that! I love a cloudy day! I wanted to share my Lankford Town, Tennessee sampler I stitched last year....NOT the best of pictures, but i wanted it by candlelight!....This sampler has been tucked away this year because i couldn't find a frame to put it in...It measures just a little over 16x20...So, with the border I didn't want to try to put it in a 16 by 20 frame...So, one day when Tim decided to take the day off and spend it with me while the kids were at school we eneded up at Hobby Lobby! And what did he find??? Barnwood frames on sale for half price off...So I got a 18x22 frame and it fits perfectly and is now hanging over my mantle just in time for autumn!
