The Guest Room Bath Changes and Day 99

While I was doing some things in the Guest Room Bath,

I realized that I did not show you some of the Guest Room Bath changes

that were done a few months ago! Better late than never!

I realized that, when I was removing many personal sized soap, shampoos, etc.

from 2 drawers in the vanity,

to accomplish my 99 items for donation or trash.

Changes in the Guest Room and it’s Ready for Guests

When I danced to the Furniture Shuffle (again) to add a piece to the sunroom,

there was an empty area in the Guest Room that needed to be filled.

Oh my, I cannot let an empty space stay empty for long!

So I made some changes in the Guest Room and it’s ready for guests.

My Blue and White Christmas Guest Room

It seems as though I am working on my Christmas decorating,

I work to complete one floor at a time in the house.

When the first floor was done, it was time to move on the next.

My Blue and White Christmas Guest Room was the first room on my list,

especially since I was expecting company.

Springtime Means Guests

Springtime means guests in our house.

Whether it be family or friends.

So time to spruce it up a little to make it comfortable

and hopefully a bit of home away from home.

Happy 2016 and a Review of My 2015 Favorites

Happy 2016!! I hope you all had a most wonderful New Year’s Eve

welcoming in the New Year.

I have no resolutions this year.

Why?

Maybe it is because my goal for this year is to enjoy each day, each moment

one day at a time, one moment at a time.

The “Que Sera, Sera” attitude . . . to be happy that I woke up and saw the sun

and ended the day with a goodnight kiss.

For today, I will reflect back on my favorite projects of 2015.

Because this project was for my “sweetie”, it was my favorite.

My Favorite Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas & Inspiration

When I wrap a Christmas gift,

I try to keep the recipient in mind

to customize it . . . to make it special just for them.

Or to incorporate it into my decor. You may find someone’s gift

not under a tree, but most likely on a bench or table in the house.

You may find it outdoors too, as they step up to the door,

only to find the packages are for them.

A New Sitting Area

A new sitting area was created after I visited my friend Mary Alice

to say good-bye to her home that I loved. And, of course the one she loved too.

We were taking a walk upstairs and I noticed her Sitting/TV viewing room a bit sparse.

She sold much of the furniture in that room,

however, there was one lonely remaining chair.

I stated, “hmmmm, I never noticed this chair before.”

Wonderful Chippiness Added to the Guest Room

Once upon a time there was an antique blanket chest

that was at the foot of the iron bed in the guest room.

You can see it here when I revealed the guest room makeover.

That blanket chest was relocated to the sunroom to add more texture and warmth seen here.

Well, that left a void at the foot of the bed in the guest room.

So what is one to do? Well, you visit Mary Alice’s shop!
