Wallpaper Boxes

So, I’ve been trying to find some items to re-decorate my closet.  I fell in love with vintage wallpaper boxes ~ I already have a few I’ve collected over the years and thought I’d try to purchase some more.  Wow – way over my limited budget with 3 kids going to college and my enormous food budget.  So. . . I thought I try my hand at creating my own.  They’re not perfect, but alas – they’re all mine.  What do you think?

On another note, I’ve (well, my daughter & I) have started re-painting our steps and our closet and I can’t wait to show you the process.  Talk to everyone soon – Wendy

So, getting ready to redecorate. . .

I thought it would be fun to take everyone thru my redecorating projects over the next few months.  I decided that it’s time to spend some time on my home and I’m inviting everyone else to join in.  The first project I’m going to tackle is my hallway closet that I’ve re-done to be a display case for my treasures that I’ve neglected for years.  I’ll begin posting before & after pictures shortly.  I welcome all your comments as I go thru this decorating process.  Wendy

Back from Vacation

What a wonderful time we had.  The weather was just perfect for skiing, although in the late afternoons, it was really cold!  I think I skiied more and better this time than I ever have and funny enough, it made my kids happy watching me struggle (You think they have a mean streak, lol?!).  Here’s just a couple of the highlights of our trip.  I’ll post more of the beautiful pictures my daughter took later.  Lots of fun and I’ll cherish the time forever – Wendy

Mini Vacation with Family

Well, we’re off to ski for 5 days.  I just can’t believe with this Michigan weather, we’re actually going off to colder temperatures and MORE snow.  The high points are I get to spend 5 days with my children, who actually talk without computers (LOL!) ~ the low points are I’m afraid I’ll fall, run into a tree. . . . etc!  I’m not the most talented skiier! 

Hope all of you have a wonderful week!  Hugs, Wendy

P.S.  I’ll post some pictures when I get back.
