Wow!  bet you all are proud of that young man!
.... Not just ANY batchelor pad!  My 22 year old grandson, Blake, has moved into his first place!  Well, actually, he's lived away from home for nearly 6 years, but always with roommates, in dorms, in shared homes and apartme...

Computer's New Feature and a Glorious Morning
I opened my computer yesterday and it sort  of came apart.  So it now has a new orange feature, apparently permanent. Is this ok? I sat out back early this morning, enjoying the sun.  It was 50 degrees out. But 50 degrees felt pretty good with sunshine, a h...

It Felt Like Friday Today
But it was Thursday.  And the sun was in and out all day. I kept chasing it though, and got some sunny shots for you! It was a nice day to putter about outside.  My mom had given me a flower arrangement for Easter, so I broke it up into different pots for o...

Skillet Apple Crisp
I mentioned recently   (http://oursearskithome.blogspot.com/2014/03/on-new-kick.html) that I'm kind of on a new kick....using cast iron for cooking. I shopped the garage and got my 3 other skillets and they now reside in the kitchen. They are great for sto...

I wish one of our porches was screened in!  Especially upstairs....always dream of having a sleeping porch.
Isn't it fun to paint and tweak?
I've finally gotten the screened porch ready for the warm seasons.  Nothing new, even the same plants.  Just a few changes.  The Philodendron shed its largest leaves over the winter, and is putting on new growth.  It gets ...

Kathy,
I love tweaking.  Indoors and out!
I also love painting things and changing their look!
Loving your swing with the built in cup holder.
We are still at the lake house, and I've been having so much fun. I've done lots of small projects, and moved things here and there. First off, we rearranged the living room, and I'm liking it so much.  Of course, any kind of...

Thanks Carol!  That was a nice surprise when we bought the swing.  It was made locally near the lake house, and we love having the cup holders.  They pop right out for cleaning too.  Have a great weekend!

Fascinating, Kathy.  It does give one shivers to see an old place like that again.  So many beautiful memories.
I hope the wood can be reused, too.....it's beautiful.
NOT YOUR USUAL HOME TOUR Week before last, I had the opportunity to go back to the homeplace where my maternal grandmother lived when my siblings and I were growing up!! What a wonderful opportunity. We had heard that the hom...

I hope we can determine who the current owner is and get permission to remove some of it.  I'd like to have the whole house moved here.  I'd make myself a studio!!  I just want to save it or at least some part of it!  Thanks for your visit!

The white definitely was the perfect choice!  It looks great, Kathy!  I have a vanity bench in the bedroom that I made over by wrapping a pillow sham cover around it.  No staples, because it was just temporary......a couple of years ago!  It's held up well.
I've had this vanity bench since we built the house.  I bought it at Kirkland's (13 years ago). The base is all swirly, and was a goldish color that had darkened in places over the years making it look a little grungy. The si...

I like it white too!  I'd love to see your makeover.  Did you do a post with it in it?  Hope you have a great week!
